About Clear Aligners
If you’re dreading the thought of long dental appointments and a mouth full of metal wires, clear aligners from Leland Orthodontics may be the right choice for your smile. Dr. Leland can use clear aligners to give you a stunning smile by creating a series of clear, custom-fit aligners.
1. Come In For Your Smile Consultation
At your first free consultation, Dr. Leland will sit down with you, assess the current state of your teeth, and discuss what you’re hoping to accomplish to enhance your smile. We’ll also discuss your financial needs to make sure your treatment fits your budget.
If Dr. Leland determines that clear aligners are the best solution to create an amazing smile, we’ll sit down and discuss the financial options and treatment plans that will be the best for you.
2. Make A Plan
Our Leland Orthodontics team will take digital images and X-rays of your teeth and use these to create your treatment plan. We’ll use a computerized program to design your customized series of clear, removable aligners that will shift your teeth in stages toward a beautifully straight smile.
Dr. Leland precisely designs each set of clear aligners to adjust your teeth to a predetermined location.
3. Wear Your Aligners
After receiving your clear aligners, you should wear them as much as possible, but you can easily remove them for eating, flossing, and brushing. Wearing your aligners 22+ hours each day is needed to achieve an ideal result.
You’ll come into our Reno office for check-ups about every five to ten weeks to get your new sets of aligners so Dr. Leland can check the progress of your teeth. (These checkups are generally quick and painless since you won’t have any wires to check or tighten.)
In-House Clear Aligners
Our in-house clear aligners are customized right here at Leland Orthodontics, ensuring a perfect fit for your unique smile. These aligners are crafted using the latest technology and materials to provide a smooth, comfortable fit. They are transparent and virtually unnoticeable, offering an aesthetic and practical solution for straightening your teeth. With our in-house option, you experience convenience and direct access to our expert team throughout your treatment journey.
Spark Clear Aligners
Spark aligners are another fantastic option we offer at Leland Orthodontics. Engineered with TruGEN™, the latest advancement in clear aligner material, Spark aligners are clear, comfortable, and highly efficient at moving teeth. They are designed to be more transparent and stain-resistant than other leading clear aligner brands, helping you maintain a natural-looking smile during your treatment.
Clear Aligners For Teens
Being a teenager is an exciting time, filled with memorable moments and new opportunities. It’s also the ideal time to begin your journey towards a healthier, straighter smile. At Leland Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer clear aligners for teens, providing an efficient solution for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues without compromising on your lifestyle.
Why Clear Aligners?
We understand that as a teenager, you want to participate in activities you enjoy and make lasting memories with confidence. Traditional metal braces can sometimes present challenges for musicians, athletes, actors, or public speakers. That’s where clear aligners come in.
Clear aligners are made of transparent plastic, making them nearly invisible. This means you can continue to engage in all your favorite activities without worrying about the hindrances often associated with metal braces. And the best part? Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them!
What to Expect with Clear Aligners
At your initial consultation with Dr. Leland, you’ll find out if clear aligners are a good fit for your smile and your lifestyle. If they are, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan just for you.
The clear aligners will be custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth, gradually and gently shifting them into their correct positions. You’ll switch to a new set of aligners every week, allowing your teeth to continue moving toward the desired alignment.
One of the significant advantages of clear aligners is their removability. You can simply take them out when eating, brushing, or flossing, making oral hygiene maintenance a breeze. Plus, there are no dietary restrictions, so you can continue enjoying your favorite foods throughout your treatment.
At Leland Orthodontics, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their orthodontic journey. With clear aligners, you can achieve the smile of your dreams without compromising on your lifestyle or confidence.
Clear Aligners For Adults
At Leland Orthodontics, we believe in providing orthodontic solutions that blend seamlessly with your lifestyle. That’s why we’re proud to offer clear aligners for adults. These nearly invisible appliances offer a discreet, comfortable, and convenient way to achieve the straight, beautiful smile you’ve always desired.
Why Choose Clear Aligners as an Adult?
Orthodontic treatment is not just for teenagers. Adults too can benefit immensely from a straighter, healthier smile. However, many adults are hesitant about traditional braces due to esthetic concerns. That’s where clear aligners come in.
Clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth subtly without drawing attention to your treatment. They are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth, ensuring comfort and efficiency. Moreover, they are removable, which means you can take them out for eating, brushing, and important social or professional events.
Clear aligners offer several benefits that make them an excellent choice for adult orthodontic treatment:
- Discreet Treatment — The transparent design of clear aligners makes your orthodontic treatment almost unnoticeable, allowing you to smile confidently throughout your journey.
- Comfort — Clear aligners are smooth and custom-fitted, eliminating the discomfort often associated with metal brackets and wires.
- Convenience — With clear aligners, there are no dietary restrictions. You can continue enjoying your favorite foods by simply removing your aligners during meals.
- Improved Oral Hygiene — Since clear aligners are removable, you can maintain your regular oral hygiene routine, reducing the risk of potential issues like cavities or gum disease.
