About Teeth Aligners
A lot of patients did not have the need or weren't able to wear braces during adolescence, but they now experience some spacing or crowding problematic areas that keep them from attaining a straight, striking smile. Invisible teeth orthodontic aligner trays are uniquely designed covers for the teeth made from invisible plastic or acrylic material that effectively straightens teeth into alignment. Using stages of aligners over a number of months, clear teeth aligners effectively straighten mild to moderate crowded teeth and spacing irregularities for straighter, healthier teeth. Invisible aligner trays are usually preferred by patients over traditional visible straightening methods since they are hardly noticed and can be set aside for eating, brushing, and flossing. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Wilmington in Wilmington, NC explain teeth straightening recommendations, such as clear teeth aligners during regular cleanings.
"A trip to the dentist can be a scary thing, causing anxiety coupled with the fear of pain. I've been to Dr. Smith, with Dental Works several times now, and I felt I should comment to my experience. I had two fillings this last time, and he could sense my nervousness. He was able to numb the area well, and then completed the work as swiftly as I could of ever imagined anyone doing so. Literally, within minutes, he had finished, and was ready to begin the filing. I can't thank him enough for completing the work so fast, and within hours, I could tell he had alleviated the pain I was having, and they look great. I would reccomend him to anyone who dreads going to the dentist as much as I do! LNE"- L.E. / Yelp / Dec 28, 2017

"I was really nervous to find a dentist being in a new area. I called around and read reviews. When I spoke to Wendy my mind was made up. So went in today and was greeted warmly. The staff is all amazingly nice and caring. Susan took me back and never left my side for long which really helped me calm down. The doctor was so concerned and took time to help me decide on process to do. Going to have my family come here as well. Never have I been treated with such care and not rushed. If you are like me and a mess around dentists please do not wait. This is the best choice around. I will not neglect my teeth any more."- A.P. / Yelp / Nov 16, 2017

What to Expect
Each phase of clear aligners are tailored depending on the patient's existing teeth structure. Each set of aligners are manufactured based on digital X-rays, physical impressions, and photos. The individual will leave our office with several sets of aligning trays at their orthodontic visit and our dentists will confirm that the first set fits properly so that any tweaks can be made. Our patients generally wear the trays as many hours in a day as possible. The alignment trays should be temporarily set aside for brushing, eating, and drinking colored liquids. When one tray has been worn for a specific period of time, the next phase of trays will replace the current set during a scheduled appointment at DentalWorks - Wilmington.
The treatment timeframe that a patient wears each group of aligners is tailored based on the specific needs of each person. The progression of trays needed is always discussed by our dentists during the consultation. The trays will be worn as often as possible until the teeth are repositioned accordingly. A thorough analysis at DentalWorks - Wilmington will be provided at each appointment so that the repositioning can be measured. Our dentists will consult with patients so they are kept informed of the ongoing progression. Once the teeth are straight, a fixed retainer will be placed on the teeth for long-lasting results.
According to the details of the patient's dental insurance benefits, a specific amount of the treatment may be accounted for. Our insurance coordinators at DentalWorks - Wilmington will talk to the patient's provider to gain insight into their benefits and give a realistic estimate of the patient's out-of-pocket fees. Customers who do not have dental insurance for clear aligner treatment, may consider DentalWorks - Wilmington's in-house payment opportunities.
