Yearning for a healthier, straighter smile without the inconvenience of metal wires and bands that often accompany braces? At O’Gara-Gilbert Orthodontics, we bring your aspiration of a rejuvenated smile to reality. Our adept clear aligner orthodontists, Dr. O’Gara and Dr. Gilbert, provide patients with an astoundingly effective and remarkably comfortable method to align teeth – all while staying virtually invisible.

Understanding Clear Aligners

Clear aligners employ a series of tailor-made trays to expedite teeth straightening, requiring fewer office visits compared to traditional braces. Their near-invisibility allows you to enhance your smile incognito. In the United States and Canada, thousands of orthodontists rely on clear aligners for precise and efficient patient treatment.

Why Opt for Clear Aligners?

Inconspicuous Appeal: Clear aligners remain inconspicuous during wear, often going unnoticed by friends, family, and colleagues – unless, naturally, you choose to share your secret.

Supreme Comfort: Crafted from a specialized plastic, our clear aligners feature smooth, rounded edges that prevent mouth and gum irritation.

Personalized Precision: Each set of clear aligners is meticulously customized to fit your unique oral structure. Cutting-edge 3D computer imaging technology meticulously replicates your mouth and teeth.

Conveniently Removable: Clear aligners grant you the freedom to eat, drink, brush, floss, and commemorate special occasions without altering your routine.

Efficacy in Action: Notable improvements become evident even before completing your treatment.

The Mechanism Behind Clear Aligners

Clear Aligners exert gentle, consistent pressure on your teeth, gradually guiding them to their desired positions. Upon commencing your Clear Aligners regimen, you’ll receive several sets of personalized aligners. Every two weeks, you transition to the subsequent set. Over time, you’ll observe transformative shifts in your teeth alignment, leading to a straighter, healthier smile in just a matter of months.

Ideal Candidates

A precise diagnosis forms the foundation for selecting the optimal treatment route for each patient. O’Gara-Gilbert Orthodontics offers a complimentary assessment involving a visual examination, X-rays, facial imaging, and a review of historical dental records and medical history. These evaluations unveil specific correction requirements. Subsequently, treatment options are explored in alignment with your needs, aspirations, and lifestyle preferences.

Clear aligners present an appealing option for numerous individuals, both adults and children, contending with mild-to-moderate malocclusion issues such as crowding, spacing, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites.

Duration of Treatment

While the majority of treatments conclude within a year, individual timelines may differ.

Wearing and Caring for Your Clear Aligners

Clear aligners should be worn for at least 22 hours daily, with removal exclusively for eating or oral hygiene. Colored liquids can stain aligners, warranting removal during consumption. Cleaning is crucial, with a soft-bristled toothbrush and cool water, excluding toothpaste that may harm the material. Gently brushing both sides of the aligners followed by a thorough rinse maintains their clarity and eliminates plaque and bacteria that contribute to cavities.
