4 key advantages of an clear aligner:
The main reason why adult patients in our office choose aligners is that they are practically invisible. This helps to disguise the fact that the patient is undergoing orthodontic treatment, which can be uncomfortable for some adults. Aligners also help to temporarily conceal existing gaps due to lack of teeth, which is another aesthetic advantage.
Ability to remove
Unlike traditional appliances, our patients adore the ability to remove their alignments when eating and maintaining oral hygiene. This allows them to continue with the usual hygienic routine of brushing and flossing.
Not only do alligners make cleaning easier, but they offer patients the freedom to choose their food. They no longer have to pay attention to the list of prohibited foods due to which traditional appliances can be released and require additional orthodontic visits.
Dental and soft tissue health
Many patients who have traditional appliances do not take proper care of their teeth because they have not adjusted their routine to maintain oral hygiene. Such patients have an increased risk of developing dental caries, gingivitis, and eventually periodontitis.
Teeth scanning without unpleasant impressions
One of the best ways we can be clinically more effective and reduce the discomfort experienced by our patients is through the combined application of aligners and scanning without classic fingerprints. Digital scanning is increasingly used in dentistry, which is one of the reasons why many of our patients opt for alligners.
