Lovett Dental offers clear aligner trays in Jersey Village, Texas. Clear aligners are one of the many options we offer to help our patients upgrade their smiles and improve other orthodontic issues like malocclusion. We also offer services to support your dental health while using clear aligner trays and beyond.

Clear Aligner Trays for Straighter Smiles

Clear aligners are the perfect option for teeth straightening if you desire flexibility. Patients enjoy having the ability to remove the popular orthodontic system’s clear aligners. Once our orthodontist determines you are a candidate for clear aligners, your road to straight teeth will begin with an exam. The orthodontist will take an in-depth look at your teeth along with taking digital X-rays, photos, and impressions or digital scans. Next, your dentist will use specialized software to design the series of clear aligners that will gradually straighten your teeth. Unlike DIY aligners patients can order from home, clear aligner trays straighten all the teeth instead of the front-facing teeth only. Therefore, our invisible teeth aligners are an excellent option for most people who require a solution that corrects their bite.

Are You a Candidate for Clear Aligner Trays?

Clear aligner trays can be used to treat a variety of issues, including gaps, crowded teeth, overbite, underbite, and crossbite. While clear aligners generally work very well for adults and older teens, younger teens and children are not always good candidates because their teeth are typically still growing in. Lifestyle habits and commitment level also factor into the compatibility of Invisalign. The system’s clear retainers are removable. However, you will be required to wear them a minimum of 22 hours a day. Patients must be disciplined in removing the retainers when eating and drinking then brushing and promptly replacing the retainers. Therefore, those who are likely to have difficulty keeping up with the required regimen are likely to have more success with other orthodontic solutions. As a leading provider of orthodontics in Jersey Village, Texas, we offer teeth-straightening devices to suit a variety of different ages, dental conditions, and lifestyles.

The Process for Using Clear Aligner Trays

The overall length of the treatment process for clear aligners varies from patient to patient. Overall, clear aligner patients require less time to achieve their desired result when compared to patients who use traditional braces. Patients who have very slight crowding issues may complete their treatment plan in as little as six months. More severe dental issues require a longer timeline. The average user of clear aligner trays is able to complete the treatment plan in approximately 12 months. In contrast, traditional braces generally require a treatment plan of approximately 24 months.
