Clear Aligner Therapy in Hudson Valley Transforms Smiles
You know that straighter teeth create a more attractive smile. But did you know that straighter teeth are healthier too? Crowded teeth can give food particles, bacteria, and tartar a place to hide, causing decay and gum disease. Additionally, crooked teeth and misaligned jaws are associated with headaches, earaches, dizziness, and neck pain. Correcting the bite can alleviate these symptoms, improve function and comfort, and reduce the potential for tooth wear.
Orthodontics for Grown Ups!
You want straight teeth for health and cosmetic reasons, but as an adult, you're not looking forward to a mouthful of metal. We completely understand. You've worked hard to present a professional image and would like a more grown-up solution to orthodontics. That's why Dr. Larry Hamburg here at Hudson Valley Dental Arts offers clear aligners for our adult orthodontic patients. Our practice is open to Lagrangeville, NY and surrounding areas – contact us today!
What Are Clear Aligners?
Clear aligner therapy is essentially a series of clear, removable aligners used to gently reposition your teeth. Instead of brackets and archwires, you'll wear each aligner for about two weeks. Treatment times vary depending on the individual case, but invisible braces generally require less treatment time than traditional metal braces.
The Benefits of Clear Aligners
Clear aligners have multiple benefits for adult orthodontic patients. You'll avoid the uncomfortable abrasions associated with metal in your mouth. Because the aligners are removable, they are easy to keep clean, which means you don't have to brush around brackets bonded to your teeth, you can enjoy any food you choose, and when that big night comes up, you can remove your aligner for a wonderful, orthodontic-free evening out!
