Clear Aligner Therapy
What is Clear Aligner Therapy?
Clear aligner therapy uses a series of invisible trays to correct issues like overcrowding or misaligned teeth. This orthodontic option is ideal for teens and adults who want to straighten their teeth without the need for metal braces. The clear aligner trays apply gentle pressure to the teeth, pushing them into place. You can benefit from the effects of clear aligner therapy and will enjoy a removable, easy-to-wear appliance.
