Clear Aligners in Las Vegas

Absolute Dental offers clear aligner options in Las Vegas for patients to correct their smile in a way that is significantly less obvious than traditional braces. According to a 2019 survey conducted by One Poll, 57% of people cover their mouths when they laugh because they’re self-conscious about their teeth, and the second most common thing people would change about their teeth is crookedness.

Despite a desire for straight teeth, many adults and teens are turned off by the idea of wearing metal in their mouths due to the stigma of the look. Luckily, clear aligners offer a much subtler and easier option.

What Are Clear Aligners?

According to the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), clear aligners are personalized plastic trays used to straighten teeth. Clear aligners like Invisalign offer an excellent alternative to traditional braces for those desiring more discretion and comfort for treatment to straighten teeth.

How Do Clear Aligners Work?

According to the AAO, clear aligners work by using a series of customized aligners to gradually move your teeth into a more flattering and comfortable position.

Who are clear aligners best suited for?

Teens and adults who desire to straighten their teeth more comfortably without having to wear metal braces. According to the AAO, clear aligners can fix the following issues if the case is mild to moderate:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Cramped teeth
  • Unsightly gaps
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bites

The AAO notes that severely crooked teeth, severe bite problems, or issues involving the jaw are unlikely to benefit from clear aligners. These patients may need to consider metal braces.

Benefits of Clear Aligners

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), there are many benefits to deciding on clear aligners as opposed to traditional braces. These benefits include:

  • Aligners are almost completely invisible
  • No food restrictions — you simply take the tray out when you eat
  • Easier to clean — you simply take the tray out and brush it along with your teeth
  • Little to no discomfort
  • Shorter treatment time

The experts at Absolute Dental in Las Vegas are dedicated to making your treatment a success. If you’re looking to correct crooked teeth with a more gentle approach, our clear aligners have you covered.

FAQs

A woman is putting in her clear aligners.

If you’re an adult with mild to moderate dental misalignment, clear aligners could be an ideal option for you. You might be a good candidate if you meet the following criteria:

  • You’re in overall good oral health (no gum disease, few cavities, etc.)
  • You can commit to wearing the trays for a full 22 hours per day for the duration of your treatment
  • You can commit to the oral hygiene practices necessary to keep your teeth healthy throughout the treatment

 

How long you will need to wear your clear aligners will depend on the extent of the problem and your commitment to wearing the trays. According to the ADA, clear aligners are worn for a maximum of 18 months.

In the majority of cases, patients will see results in twelve months with Invisalign. Treatment may take longer than expected if patients do not wear their aligners for the recommended amount of time.

You can expect to see your dentist every six to eight weeks during the treatment process. At the appointments, your dentist will check your progress to ensure the treatment is on track, answer any questions you may have, and, likely, switch out your aligners.

All of the Absolute Dental offices offer clear aligners like Invisalign. Give your preferred location a call today to set up an appointment to get started!

Clear aligners can be a bit uncomfortable for those with sensitive teeth and gums. However, the majority of the time, they tend to be a more comfortable alternative for braces that don’t cause much (if any) discomfort or pain.

Yes. Clear aligners are perfectly safe when you’re under the direct supervision of a dentist like you will be at Absolute Dental. Without a licensed dentist directly and thoroughly assessing your oral health and working with you in person throughout your treatment plan, there is no way to guarantee you’re making the necessary progress.

No. You will simply take your aligners out when eating or drinking anything that isn’t plain tap water. You must rinse and brush your teeth before putting the aligners back in.

Getting clear aligners in Las Vegas is a great alternative to braces for those with mild to moderate issues with misalignment and/or crooked teeth. Clear aligners offer a comfortable and effective way to get the smile of your dreams. If you’re looking for metal-free dental work, check out Absolute Dental.

Special Considerations for Clear Aligners

While clear aligners may feel less committed than the other braces routes, it’s still a decision with some minor issues to consider. For example:

Are you and your lifestyle ready for clear aligners? 

While clear aligners are the more attractive and comfortable way to get straighter teeth, there is a level of commitment required that may be difficult for some to maintain. For example, according to the AAO, clear aligners need to be worn for 22 hours a day. And, since you can take them out, they’re not a great option for those who tend to lose things.

Caring for your clear aligners

Do you have the time and dedication to clean your teeth every time you eat or drink? This is another aspect that may not fit everyone’s lifestyle. According to the AAO, your orthodontist will give you specific instructions on how to best care for your aligners. Not brushing your teeth before putting the trays back in could cause staining on the trays and/or risk getting cavities from food particles getting stuck in the trays and on your teeth. Generally speaking, the main thing is to keep the trays clean by doing the following:

  • Take your aligners out when eating and drinking (except tap water)
  • Brush your teeth before putting your aligners back in after meals
  • Brush the aligners themselves twice a day as directed by your dentist
  • Store your aligner in their case when you’re eating/drinking

Regular braces tend to be cheaper 

The ADA notes that while clear aligners have many perks, they also tend to cost more than traditional braces. Individual costs will vary depending on the severity of the issue being fixed and your commitment to the process.

Other Popular Alternatives to Clear Aligners

A 2019 study concluded that clear aligners are just as effective as traditional braces in fixing misaligned teeth. However, the study still displayed limits in fixing more extensive bite issues where traditional braces may have been a better method. If you have severely crooked or misaligned teeth, there are likely better options for braces, such as:

.

metal braces

Metal Braces

According to the Cleveland Clinic, metal braces are when a dentist sticks a metal bracket to each tooth and fuses them together with a metal wire. Bands are also used in some cases to hold everything in place.

 

clear braces

Clear Braces

According to the Cleveland Clinic, clear braces are the same as metal braces, except clear braces use a tooth-colored ceramic for the brackets, so the braces are less noticeable. You will still have a visible wire holding the brackets in place. Clear braces are great for a more subtle look, but they tend to be more fragile and more expensive than traditional options.

 

invisible braces

Invisible Braces and Invisalign®

The Cleveland Clinic notes that invisible braces are the same as clear aligners. Invisalign® is another popular brand of clear aligner offered at Absolute Dental if you’re interested.
