Experience the Clarity of Clear Aligners

At Northview Orthodontics, clear aligners, like Invisalign, uLab, and 3M Clarity, represent the forefront of orthodontic technology. This virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth is perfect to deliver a smile you'll love.

All About Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are custom-made, transparent plastic trays that fit snugly over your teeth, gently moving them into the desired position over time. Unlike traditional braces, these aligners are removable and virtually invisible, providing a discreet treatment option.

Our office proudly offers top-of-the-line options from Invisalign, uLab, and 3M Clarity, each bringing unique strengths to suit different needs and preferences.

How Do Clear Aligners Work?

The treatment starts with a digital scan of your teeth, which Dr. Klingler uses to create a precise treatment plan tailored to your specific dental needs. This plan visualizes the step-by-step transformation of your smile.

Clear aligners are then custom-made to fit your teeth at each stage of the treatment. You'll wear each set of aligners for about one to two weeks before moving on to the next set, gradually achieving your desired alignment.

Who Are Candidates for Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are ideal for adults and teenagers looking for a less noticeable, more aesthetic solution to orthodontic issues. They’re particularly effective for correcting mild to moderate misalignments, including gaps, overcrowding, and certain bite irregularities.

During your consultation at Northview Orthodontics, we assess your specific conditions to determine if clear aligners are the best option for you.

Benefits of Clear Aligners

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Clear aligners are almost invisible, making them a great option for those who are self-conscious about wearing traditional braces.
  • Comfort & Convenience: Without wires or brackets, clear aligners offer a smooth, comfortable fit and minimal irritation.
  • Removable: This allows for easier eating, brushing, and flossing, leading to better overall oral hygiene during treatment.
  • Predictability & Precision: Advanced 3D imaging technology allows for precise planning and prediction of your treatment outcome.

Understanding the Stakes

While clear aligners offer numerous benefits, they require a high level of patient compliance to be effective.

It's essential to wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, only removing them to eat, drink anything other than water, and for oral hygiene routines.

Maintenance Tips

  • Regular Cleaning: Clean your aligners with a soft toothbrush and clear, antibacterial soap. Avoid colored soaps or toothpaste that can stain aligners.
  • Routine Checkups: Keep your scheduled appointments to monitor progress and receive the next set of aligners.
  • Storage: Always store your aligners in their case when not in use to prevent damage or loss.
