To correct malocclusion, a growing number of patients and doctors prefer clear aligners to traditional wires and brackets, due to advantages such as:
Aligners are not for everyone in every situation. There are a lot of marketing dollars behind some brands and many of the claims are unfounded.
– Similar to Invisalign but with greater control by Dr. Bentele. In most cases he will accomplish the tooth movements virtually to our standards through the SureSmile platform. This then generates 3D printed models of each phase. Each aligner is manufactured in our in-house lab. With this form of nearly invisible treatment, the mechanism of smile transformation is hidden, but not your smile! Additionally, the clear aligners are removable so you can eat what you want and maintain your oral health with ease. Ask for a demonstration of our process.
No, they aren’t partially battery powered. Some patients with a moderately severe malocclusion desire aligner treatment but the difficulty of the case determines that braces are the best answer. Oftentimes one arch fits this criteria and the opposing arch has a milder problem that is amenable to aligner treatment. Other times the case could be totally treatable with aligners but it may take a long and potentially frustrating time to accomplish a desirable result. In these cases, we can now offer “hybrid aligner treatment” which still gives a great result in a timely fashion. We start one or both arches in fixed braces for 4-6 months. That gets us over the hump by aligning some of the more crowded or overlapped teeth. Then the braces are removed and a new optical scan is made of the almost there setup to finish out with aligners.
