At Vac Orthodontics, we also offer aligners, a different way to straighten your teeth. If you want to perfect your smile without braces, you might be a candidate for this clear alternative to braces.
What are aligners?
Aligners are a simple, effective way to straighten your teeth. Aligners are the clear & simple way to straighten your teeth, so you can show off your smile! Aligners are the simple, effective way to straighten your teeth, so you can get a smile you’ll love. It is the clear and simple alternative to braces. It’s a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth as you wear them. They're practically invisible, so most people won't even know you're in treatment, they fit you perfectly, so they're more comfortable than regular braces, and they're removable, so you can eat whatever you like and clean your teeth normally.
How Does it Work?
You and Dr. Vaccariello will evaluate your teeth and talk about any problems or goals you have for your smile at your consultation. Once you both establish aligners are the right treatment option for you, we will take a digital scan, photos, and x-rays of your teeth that we uses in manufacturing your custom aligners. Depending on your treatment needs, the aligners may be made in the office or from a outside manufacturer. As you progress through the clear aligners, your teeth will continue to move with each tray until your bite and smile are perfected. You will still require regular visits every 4-8 weeks for the orthodontist to monitor your progress and make any needed changes.
What Can It Do?
Aligners can treat a wide variety of issues that keep people from achieving their ideal smiles. Straighter teeth don’t just look better; they work better too. Poorly-aligned teeth can interfere with bite function, wear out quicker, and are more prone to cavities.
My dentist offers aligners. Why should I go to an orthodontist?
Many dentists do offer aligners in their office; however, orthodontists like Dr. Vaccariello have completed 2-3 additional years of specialty training in moving teeth – exactly what aligners do! Trust your smile to someone who specializes in straightening teeth and perfecting your bite.
