The Clear Choice for Straighter Smiles
Removable clear aligners from Hoagburg Orthodontics can transform your smile without brackets, wires, or bands!
What are Clear Aligners?
Hoagburg Orthodontics is proud to offer clear aligners as a popular and effective alternative to traditional braces. Clear aligners are an excellent option for discreet treatment and work effectively in most orthodontic cases.
This orthodontic treatment uses a series of clear plastic trays to shift your teeth into the correct position. We customize these trays for your unique smile and apply gentle, constant pressure, and move your teeth.
Each tray is custom-made to fit your teeth and is worn for about two weeks before being replaced with the next tray in the series. As you progress through the trays, your teeth gradually move into the desired position.
Clear aligners are a popular alternative to traditional metal braces because they're virtually invisible, making them an excellent choice for adults and teens who don't want to draw attention to their orthodontic treatment.
They are also removable, so you can take them out to eat, brush, floss, and for special occasions.
While they were originally used for minor corrections, Dr. Brian and Dr. Steve can use clear aligners to treat more complex issues, including:
- Crooked or crowded teeth
- Spacing issues or gaps between teeth
- Overbite or underbite
- Mild to moderate malocclusion
- Rotated or tilted teeth
Benefits of Clear Aligners
Clear aligners offer many benefits over traditional braces, giving you freedom and flexibility during orthodontic treatment.
Clear aligners are virtually invisible, so you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing you're undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Clear aligners are made from smooth, comfortable plastic that won't irritate your cheeks or gums as metal braces can.
Clear aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat, brush, and floss. This makes maintaining good oral hygiene easier than with traditional braces.
Clear aligners are just as effective as traditional braces at straightening teeth; in some cases, they can work even faster!
Clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth, so they fit snugly and comfortably and can effectively straighten your teeth.
With clear aligners, you won't need to visit our Fort Wayne or Auburn office as often as you would with traditional braces, making them a convenient option for busy adults and teens.
Clear aligners are made from medical-grade plastic that is safe for your mouth and won't cause allergic reactions.
Your Clear Aligner Process
Clear aligners apply gentle pressure to your teeth, gradually moving them into perfect alignment. Here's what you can expect when you choose clear aligners for your orthodontic treatment:
First Free Consultation
Dr. Steve or Dr. Brian will evaluate your teeth and recommend the best treatment for your needs.
If clear aligners are right for you, your orthodontist will create a custom treatment plan with a series of clear plastic trays.
You'll be fitted with your first set of trays, which you'll wear for about two weeks before moving on to the next set in the series.
As you progress through the trays, your teeth gradually move into straighter positions. You'll need to wear the trays for 20-22 hours per day to achieve the best results.
You'll need to visit our Fort Wayne or Auburn office every six to eight weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Once your treatment is complete, you’ll get a retainer to help maintain your newly straightened smile.
