Orthodontics and Teeth Straightening with Clear Aligner Therapy 
Botany Downs, East Tamaki, Pakuranga, Howick

There are many options to straighten crowded or crooked teeth, including metal or white ceramic braces, invisalign, or removable orthodontic plates. Talk to one of our friendly dentists today to see what option best suits you.

Traditionally, braces have been the preferred method for dentists to straighten teeth. With braces, the brackets and metal wires are attached to the teeth and tightened regularly to correct the teeth alignment. 

Because clear aligners don’t use wires or brackets to correct the teeth, it is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to braces. If you would like to find out whether you are good candidate for clear aligners - book a consultation today.

Clear aligners work by using transparent (almost invisible) aligners that are changed every 1 to 2 weeks for a new set of aligners. Each clear aligner gradually moves your teeth into your desired position. When you reach your final aligner, your teeth will have moved into the ideal position pre-designed by you and your dentist.

During the design stage, your dentist will use a high-tech digital system to analyse your smile and digitally move your teeth in the desired alignment. By doing this, the patient is able to see and customise the end results to match the patient’s needs. A patient can have anywhere from 10 to 40 aligners, depending on their case.

Clear aligners  need to be worn full time (day & night) to achieve best results, but can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. Because of how discreet the treatment is, it’s no wonder it is a popular choice for many!
