Clear Aligner Orthodontic Therapy
in Boca Raton
Beautiful, Straight Teeth Without Metal Braces
Clear aligner orthodontic therapy has become the treatment of choice for mildly crooked teeth. However, new advancements in clear aligner technology allow for recommendations to be extended to include treatment for moderately and even severely crooked teeth.
Clear aligner orthodontic therapy uses a series of custom-formed clear aligners that fit over your teeth. They gently and gradually shift your teeth into place, according to the exact movements the doctor plans out for you.
Dr. Michael Radu has been a clear aligner orthodontic therapy provider for over a decade. Additionally, he has extensive experience correcting problems with bite alignment. When you get clear aligner orthodontic therapy treatment at our office, we’ll not only make sure your teeth come out nice and straight, we also make sure the end result includes a properly aligned bite.
How Clear Aligner Orthodontic Therapy Works
Clear aligner orthodontic therapy uses removable, clear aligners to comfortably move your teeth into their proper place.
If you’re a candidate for clear aligner orthodontic therapy, you can expect comfortable teeth straightening with a minimal impact on your everyday life and oral hygiene care.
Planning Your Clear aligner orthodontic therapy Treatment
Our doctors take X-rays and photos of your mouth, measure your bite and take impressions of your teeth. They can also show you the images of how your teeth will move and let you know how long your treatment plan is expected to take. They use this information to custom-make your aligners.
Gradually Straightening Your Teeth
You’ll wear each aligner for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next successive aligner. In this way, your teeth will gradually move into place until your straightening plan is completed.
During treatment, you will periodically visit our office once every four to six weeks so the doctor can check on your progress and make any needed adjustments to your treatment.
