When you hear the word “orthodontics,” you may think of row after row of metallic smiles in a high school or junior high yearbook. The truth is that it is never too late to improve the alignment of your bite. But while you may be interested in a straighter smile, you may want to avoid the extra dental visits that braces require, along with the increased amount of brushing and flossing. Traditional braces come with limits on the things you can eat and drink, and the metal brackets may cause friends and coworkers to focus on your dental work and not on you. At Jeppson Dental, we are providers for ClearCorrect clear aligners in Provo, Utah. We invite you to call our office at 801-356-7701 for more information and to schedule your appointment with our dentist, Dr. Joe Jeppson.
ClearCorrect clear aligners may be the perfect orthodontic treatment for adults or older teens who can follow a prescribed treatment plan. The entire process from start to finish is amazingly easy and convenient. If you and our dentist decide that the ClearCorrect system is right for you, the first step will be to take digital impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be used to create a series of clear aligners that you will wear throughout your treatment period. The aligners are made of a clear, plastic material that fits snugly against your teeth, and they are almost virtually unnoticeable to other people. These aligners can be removed so you can clean them when you eat and when it is time to brush and floss your teeth. This makes it easy to care for your aligners and your smile and allows you to continue to enjoy your favorite foods.
You will wear each set of aligners for a prescribed period of time before switching to the new set. Typically, you will wear a set for two weeks, but Dr. Jeppson will advise you as to your treatment time. When you are finished, Dr. Jeppson will provide you with a retainer to help ensure that your teeth and jaw ligaments remain in their new positions. For an orthodontic treatment that provides the maximum benefits with minimal impact, call our team for your appointment with our dentist.
