Clear aligners and traditional braces are both effective orthodontic treatments. Clear aligners are best for fixing mild to moderate conditions such as crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth and common bite problems.
For more complex cases, metal braces may be the better choice. They offer precise control for severe misalignment and teeth movement. Braces may also be recommended for younger kids because they're bonded to the teeth and can't be forgotten or lost. Clear aligners require a higher level of compliance and responsibility since need to be worn 20 to 22 hours a day and switched out every 1 to 2 weeks.
During your initial consultation, we'll go over your oral health, take X-rays, and talk about treatment options. If clear aligners are a good choice for your orthodontic needs, our dental team will digitally scan your teeth and present an individualized treatment plan just for you.
At your next appointment, you'll receive a series of custom-made aligner trays designed to move your teeth as quickly and comfortably as possible. While total treatment time depends on your goals, most patients see amazing results within 18 months. For minor cosmetic fixes, Reveal Clear Aligners Express treatment offers results in 10 months or less.
