Are aligners right for me?
Many patients find themselves wondering if they need braces, or if clear aligners will work for them. The truth is, we can’t say without a consultation. Clear aligners are used for correcting the alignment of your most visible teeth. Traditional braces allow the orthodontist much more control in moving and correcting teeth. Your treatment begins with a thorough examination. We will review your jaw alignment, your teeth spacing, discuss any impacted teeth and more. Depending on what we see, we may refer you to an orthodontist for examination.
We never recommend that a patient bypass the opinion of a dental professional. When you are seeking information about clear aligners, talk to someone who knows, like our staff at Salem Dental Arts.
