Five Benefits to Straightening Teeth Using Clear Aligners at Kling Orthodontics

Posted on: August 31, 2015

Clear Aligners We can provide you with clear aligners at Kling Orthodontics as a convenient way to straighten your teeth. If you have been dreaming of having a straight smile but are not willing to deal with the inconvenience of traditional braces, wearing aligners is an excellent alternative. Clear aligners look similar to a clear retainer that surrounds your teeth. They work using the same general principle as traditional braces – pressure is applied to the teeth in order to gradually move them into position. The only difference is that the aligners are not affixed to your teeth like the metal brackets are. To keep your teeth moving in the right direction, you will need to switch out your aligners every two weeks or so, and each aligner will be slightly different from the one before it so that your teeth continue to straighten.

Here are some of the main benefits associated with wearing clear aligners:

1) You can brush your teeth like normal. Since you are supposed to take your aligners out to brush your teeth, you simply need to rinse them and place them in a case while you brush and floss. Be sure to brush your teeth every time that you eat so that you are not trapping food particles or bacteria in between your teeth and your aligners. You should also floss at least once per day. For the best possible clean, use an electronic toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste. However, you do not want to use toothpaste on your aligners since this can scratch them.

2) You can eat your favorite foods. Clear aligners at Kling Orthodontics are meant to be taken out while you eat. That means that you can dig into a plate of ribs or take a big bite of a hamburger without worrying about food getting stuck in between your brackets. This can be embarrassing and is one reason that many adults choose not to wear braces. You never have this inconvenience when wearing aligners because they should be taken out before you ever take your first bite.

3) You can smile with confidence. When you wear clear aligners, you can smile without it being obvious that you are undergoing an orthodontic treatment. What will be obvious is that your smile is looking better. Since the aligners are clear, you can see the position of your teeth. This is a huge benefit because as your teeth become straighter, your appearance will improve, rather than you waiting until the very end to benefit from the changes.

4) You can take them out for important occasions. If you are making a major presentation at work, or you are in your cousin’s wedding, you can take your aligners out. Clear aligners at Kling Orthodontics give you the flexibility to make your own decision regarding what events are too important to wear your aligners. Just remember to put them back in as soon as you are done so that your treatment plan can stay on schedule.
