We offer clear aligners to those who do not want to deal with the appearance and discomfort of metal brackets and wires. Our clear aligners utilize a series of custom-designed and computer-generated plastic aligners that gently straighten your smile. Every couple of weeks, our dentist will provide a new set of aligners; each set involves slight changes to the alignment of your teeth, all working towards a better smile.
The gradual shifting that each new aligner provides helps direct your teeth into their proper positions. For your clear aligners, we require that you to visit our practice regularly throughout the course of your treatment so that we can ensure that your smile is progressing as planned.
Clear aligners in Metairie, Louisiana, are inconspicuous and comfortable, and they can be used to treat many orthodontic issues including:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Malocclusions including overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites
At the office of Raul Ramirez DDS, we encourage you to remember to clean your aligners regularly. Because your aligners are made of clear plastic, they can cause your teeth to appear yellowed or stained if not cleaned properly. For more information on clear aligners, and to schedule your consultation with our dentist, please call our office today at 504-885-3255. We look forward to seeing you.
