Park City clear aligners experts
If you want the same great results that traditional braces provide, but want more freedom and flexibility during your treatment, you may consider treatment with a clear aligner system. We're proud to be your trusted Park City orthodontist creating beautiful, forever smiles for patients of all ages each and every day.
How clear aligners work
Clear aligner systems are a popular orthodontic treatment that can help align teeth and improve oral health. These systems use a series of removable aligners that are custom-designed for each patient's unique needs. When used as recommended, clear aligners have been proven to be just as effective as traditional metal braces when it comes to treating most common orthodontic problems.
At Park City Orthodontics, we use x-rays and digital impressions to create a precise 3D image of your teeth during your initial consultation. With this information, we're able to design an aligner that is tailored to your smile. Our trays are constructed from a smooth, comfortable material and are designed to fit snugly over your teeth. You should switch your custom trays every 1-2 weeks to gradually move your teeth into the desired positions.
Our team of experts will ensure that your treatment is progressing as expected when you visit our practice. It's critical to follow our instructions and wear your aligners as directed to ensure the success of your treatment. Failure to follow the recommended guidelines or missing appointments can quickly negate progress and extend your treatment time.
In addition to being effective, clear aligners offer several benefits over traditional braces. They are practically invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth without drawing attention to your treatment. You can also eat and drink whatever you like, as the aligners are removable. Maintaining good oral hygiene is also easier with clear aligners, as you can remove them to brush and floss your teeth. Finally, there are no pesky wires to deal with, as there are with traditional braces.

Benefits of clear aligners
They're practically invisible.
Clear aligners are a popular orthodontic treatment because they are virtually undetectable. You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing you're wearing them.
You can eat or drink whatever you want.
Unlike braces, which restrict certain foods, clear aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink whatever you like without worrying about damaging your orthodontic appliance.
You can easily brush or floss.
Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial during orthodontic treatment. With clear aligners, you can remove them easily to brush and floss your teeth normally.
There are no pesky wires.
Braces can be uncomfortable because of the wires that can poke or irritate your mouth, and they need to be adjusted periodically. Clear aligners, on the other hand, don't have wires, and there's no need for adjustments during your treatment. You'll still need to visit your orthodontist to check on your progress, but the process is much simpler.
