Now that summer is over, it is time to think about your Fall social calendar. If you’d rather not think about all that mingling because you have oddly spaced or crooked teeth that are bringing you down, it’s possible that we could begin to straighten things out for you over the coming months. And we can probably do it without making you wear metal braces for 2-3 long years. Keep reading to hear about the two options we can get you started on this autumn at our Novi, MI dentist’s office. Then give us a call at 248-697-2487 to request your clear aligners consultation with Dr. Ross. We’ll get you smiling big again in no time!

Clear Aligners: An Easier Solution

In the old days, braces were the go-to method for overcoming challenging smile issues. But that is no longer so. At our office, Dr. Ross can set you up with a series of clear orthodontic aligners from either ClearCorrect or Invisalign. Either system will effectively take the place of harsh metallic brackets and wires for moving your teeth into a more desirable position.

We will start with a model of where you are now, where you need to end up, and all of the crucial steps along the way. These incremental movements will then be conveyed into special aligner trays. Beginning with your initial aligner, your teeth will get closer and closer to where you want them to be. The best part is that this all happens in a matter of months, usually about 12.

Here’s the deal: every couple of weeks, you simply trade out each aligner tray, in the convenience of your own home, with the next aligner in your special series. Each one picks up where the last one left off and advances your teeth a little more toward the end goal. You just need to work through the entire series, and you’ll be done.

Two Great Plans To Choose From

You can’t go wrong with ClearCorrect or Invisalign, and there are many shared perks to these aligner systems. These modern methods are quick and effective at transforming crooked, crowded, and gapped teeth into a slightly more gorgeous grin. That’s the part that matters most, right?

But there are more perks. You see, the clear gear makes it easier for you to fly under the radar for however long the treatment lasts in your case. In fact, these nearly invisible plastic aligners are so hard for people to see, no one will pick up on what is going on, unless you want them to be in the know.

You do have to wear your aligners most of the day, like 20 hours of it, every day along the way. But you can take them out whenever it makes sense to do so (like for photos, meals, and cleaning your teeth). There won’t be any major disruptions to your work life or social interactions. And you won’t need to carry around special tools for cleaning the orthodontic hardware. You just rinse them under warm water with or without a toothbrush.
