Achieve Optimal Orthodontic Goals with Clear Aligner Therapy

If you don’t like the alignment of your teeth or bite, orthodontic treatments in Sioux City, Iowa, can help you achieve your smile goals. Sioux City Family Dentistry offers precise aligner therapy to align your smile without using metal braces. Clear aligners use removable, minimally invisible, customized trays to straighten your smile discreetly, comfortably, and conveniently.

Why orthodontics matters

Orthodontic treatments help achieve optimal alignment, boosting your smile and facial aesthetics. A set of perfectly aligned teeth is one of the most sought-after features of a beautiful smile, and orthodontics helps to achieve that.

However, orthodontics isn’t about cosmetics only. Teeth straightening offers other benefits, including.

  • Improved oral health as straighter teeth are easy to brush and floss
  • Enhanced dental stability to support natural speaking and eating ability
  • Averts health complications like bruxism and TMJ pain

Whether you want to achieve aesthetic or functional goals with orthodontics, you are in the right place. Dr. Le has many years of experience in orthodontics to ensure you achieve your orthodontic goals comfortably and effectively.

Straightening teeth with precise aligner therapy

When you think about teeth straightening, conventional braces come into mind. While metal braces have their place in dentistry, several orthodontic options exist. Dr. Le uses clear aligners to straighten teeth. Instead of metal wires and brackets, the clear aligner system uses removable trays created using high-quality thermoplastic material. 

Transforming your smile with clear aligners starts with a consultation to determine your candidacy. During this evaluation, the dentist evaluates your teeth, bite, and oral health to establish whether clear aligners are the best treatment.

If yes, the dentist digitally scans your teeth to create your treatment plan. We’ll predict when and how each tooth moves during treatment using sophisticated technology. When aligned with treatment, we’ll send your digital molds to our dental lab to create your aligners.

Your treatment involves several aligners, usually 18-30. Your aligners are worn in progression, with each set worn for two weeks (20-22 hours daily) before moving to the next set. This pattern continues until you achieve your alignment goals. When you complete treatment, you won’t be required to use the aligners any longer. However, the dentist will give you a retainer to maintain your aligned teeth in their new positions.
