About Clear Aligners

What Are Angel Aligners?

Consider treatment with Angel aligners to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A free consultation with our team can determine if clear aligners are right for you! Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time in our office getting adjustments. Treatment with clear aligners also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How Do Clear Aligners Work?

You wear each set of aligners for about a week, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months but will vary from case to case.

Clear Aligners For Kids

Here at Nelson Family Orthodontics, we recognize the significance of orthodontic treatment in promoting a child’s overall well-being and growth. That’s why our practice provides treatment with clear aligners — a game-changing method for correcting misaligned teeth and bites in children. When it comes to orthodontic treatment for our children, Angel clear aligners are a terrific choice that may begin at a young age. Clear aligners can produce the same excellent outcomes as conventional braces but are more discrete. Early intervention helps us to fix any potential problems before they become larger concerns, allowing your child to get a head start on having a beautiful smile with excellent dental hygiene practices over time. With clear aligners, we can align your child’s teeth while preparing their mouth for incoming adult teeth. Treatment can also assist with arch development, crowding, and alignment. Children are different because their jaws and teeth are still developing, and Angel aligners are personalized for their needs. We start by taking digital scans of your child’s teeth in order to create an individualized treatment plan, so you and your child know what to expect. Plus, they’re removable, so your child can maintain their dental hygiene and don’t have to compromise their diets. This is especially helpful for children who may be picky eaters.

Clear Aligners For Teens

Clear aligners are a very aesthetic option, and our teen patients love that it’s easier to keep their teeth clean. With treatment with clear aligners, however, patient compliance is crucial. Patients must wear their aligners according to directions approximately 20 hours per day. Office visits every 2-3 months allow for Dr. Nelson to make sure the aligners are fitting well and the teeth are moving as predicted. A quick, free consultation with Dr. Nelson will determine how good of a candidate you are for treatment.

Why Consider Clear Aligners as an Adult?

Angel aligners employ a custom-made sequence of thermoplastic aligners to gently move your teeth into position, as opposed to traditional braces, which need to be tightened and adjusted on a regular basis. In addition, nobody will know you’re wearing them. That means no one needs to know you’re getting orthodontic treatment unless you tell them! The adaptability of clear aligners is also a major selling point for individuals considering it. You can feel at ease straightening your teeth because the aligners can be taken out whenever you’d like. If you have an important event coming up and want to appear your best, you can easily remove your aligner for the occasion and continue with your treatment without skipping a beat. Furthermore, the fact that they may be removed is quite helpful in avoiding complications with dietary restrictions. If you’re in treatment with aligners, you can eat whatever you want without worrying about breaking the aligners. Plus, since the aligners can be taken out, brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash can continue as normal, too!

The Angel clear aligner system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Our treatment uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to depict your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.

Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth — and your teeth only — to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved.

Your treatment time will be determined by Dr. Nelson based on your specific needs.

There are many factors that determine the cost of your treatment: how extensive the issues are that you want to be corrected, how long your treatment plan will last, and the specific treatment details prescribed by Dr. Nelson. At your initial consultation, we will fully review all costs associated with your treatment.

More than 5,000,000 patients worldwide have been treated with clear aligners, and the number of smiles in treatment grows daily. At your next appointment, we can answer any questions you might have, and get you started on the smile you’ve always wanted.
