Clear Aligners

Are you looking for a holistic and natural way to improve your smile’s health and appearance? Why not consider straightening your teeth with removable, translucent (clear) orthodontic aligners?

Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners move your teeth into a straighter position without any wires or brackets. Instead, you wear your trays for the prescribed period of time, then switch them out with the next set in the series. At Sunnybank Plaza Dental, most of our patients complete their orthodontic treatment in about a year.

• No dietary restrictions
• Discreet
• Great for adults of all ages
• Lower risk of cavities and gingivitis
• Whiten your smile at the same time
• No irritating wires to rub your mouth
• Fewer and shorter trips to the dentist
• No referrals to specialists

Health Benefits of Straighter Teeth

Did you know that tooth misalignment can raise your risk of common dental concerns?

For example, when teeth don’t bite together properly, your jaw (TMJ) has to compromise its everyday movements to chew and grind your food. Over time, all of those atypical functions lead to strain in your TMJ and the tissues around it, potentially causing TMD, or temporomandibular joint disorder and associated headaches.

Crowded teeth are at a statistically higher risk of developing cavities and gum disease. By straightening their position, your teeth are easier to clean and less prone to harbouring bacteria in hard-to-reach areas.

Do You Qualify for Treatment?

All of our clear adult orthodontic patients need to be free of active gum disease and tooth decay. You don’t want to trap bacterial infections under the aligners, which could potentially allow them to spread at accelerated rates.

Before settling on clear aligners, we’ll need to evaluate your bite and take a series of X-rays to assess your bone anatomy. Although clear braces work well for problems like small gaps, crooked/rotated teeth or minor overbites, they may not be as effective for severe malocclusion (misaligned bites) or crossbites. Each person is assessed on a case-by-case basis to determine their candidacy for treatment.
