Addressing Misaligned Teeth with Clear Aligner Treatment

Misaligned teeth not only impact one’s appearance but also pose significant oral health risks, including increased susceptibility to tooth decay and gum disease. However, many individuals hesitate to pursue traditional braces due to concerns about discomfort, visibility, and lifestyle disruption. Clear aligner treatment has emerged as a transformative alternative, addressing these hesitancies with its discreet, removable, and comfortable design. 

Misaligned Teeth Clear Aligners in Aliso Viejo CA Area

At Claire Cho DDS in Aliso Viejo, California, we understand the implications of misaligned teeth on oral health and explore how clear aligner therapy has revolutionized orthodontic care, making it more accessible and appealing to a wider range of patients.

Implications of Misaligned Teeth

Misaligned teeth can cause oral health problems like difficulty cleaning, leading to tooth decay and gum disease. It can also affect speech, chewing efficiency, and jaw joint function. Beyond oral health, it may impact self-esteem. Seeking orthodontic treatment can correct misalignment, improving both oral health and confidence.

How Clear Aligner Treatment Works

Clear aligner treatment utilizes custom-made, transparent trays to gradually shift teeth into proper alignment. A digital scan or impression is initially taken to create a 3D model of the patient’s teeth. Using advanced computer software, a series of aligners are designed to exert precise, controlled force on specific teeth. Patients wear each set of aligners for about one to two weeks, gradually progressing to the next set as teeth move. The aligners are removable for eating, brushing, and flossing, offering convenience and flexibility. Regular check-ups monitor progress. This discreet and comfortable approach effectively corrects misalignment, offering a desirable alternative to traditional braces.
