Clear Aligners | Southington

The Wireless Smile Solution

Southington Orthodontics is your local resource for clear aligners.

We know that braces are great, but they aren’t for everyone. That’s why we offer aligners  — a wireless choice for your smile.

What Are Clear Aligners?

Aligners are a revolutionary orthodontic treatment option that has gained popularity for their discreet and effective way of straightening teeth.

At Southington Orthodontics, Dr. C offers aligner treatments as a modern solution for patients seeking a more discreet path to a beautifully aligned smile.

Unlike traditional braces, aligner treatments are virtually invisible, making them a preferred choice if you want to keep your natural appearance while undergoing orthodontic treatment.

How Do Clear Aligners Work?

They work through a carefully orchestrated process. Dr. C will begin by thoroughly evaluating your teeth and bite. Then, he’ll create a precise 3D digital model of your mouth.

Using this model, we’ll send for a series of custom-made aligner trays made specifically for your smile.

Each set of aligners will apply controlled and gradual pressure on specific teeth, encouraging them to move into the desired positions. You’ll typically wear your aligners for about a week before progressing to the next set in the series.

This step-by-step approach ensures that your teeth shift incrementally, minimizing discomfort and maximizing efficiency.

Who Are Clear Aligners For?

They are an excellent option for a wide range of patients. They’re particularly great if you need a more discreet orthodontic treatment method.

Aligners are often the treatment of choice for adults and teenagers who want to straighten their teeth without the noticeable appearance of traditional braces. They’re also ideal if you’re dealing with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, and minor bite problems.

At your free consultation, Dr. C will evaluate your unique needs and recommend the proper treatment for you — so you can enjoy a flexible and effective way to get a beautifully aligned smile.

Braces vs. Clear Aligners

When straightening your teeth and finding your beautiful smile, you have options — and at Southington Orthodontics, we're here to help you make the right choice.

Both braces and clear aligners offer their own unique advantages. To choose the option that best suits your needs, you should understand the differences between these two treatments. Let’s take a look:

Clear Aligners: Discreet and Convenient

Clear aligners, on the other hand, offer a discreet and convenient alternative. These virtually invisible aligners are an excellent choice if you're concerned about the visibility of your treatment.

You can remove clear aligners for eating, brushing, and important events, giving you the flexibility to maintain your daily routines. Clear aligners are a great choice for almost all cases, from mild to moderate.

Braces: Time-Tested Effectiveness

Braces have a long history of successfully treating a variety of orthodontic issues. They’re especially effective for complex cases, including severe misalignments and complicated bite problems.

The strength of braces lies in their fixed nature, providing a continuous force to move your teeth into the desired position. You don't need to worry about removing them for meals or special occasions, making them a reliable option for orthodontic treatment.

Comfort & Maintenance: A Clear Advantage

When it comes to comfort and maintenance, clear aligners shine. They eliminate the discomfort often associated with braces, as there are no sharp brackets or wires. Additionally, their removability makes oral hygiene a breeze.

You can easily brush and floss your teeth without any obstructions, contributing to better overall dental health.
