Does the thought of smiling make you uncomfortable because your teeth are crooked? If so, you are far from the only one. Millions of Americans are considering treatment to straighten teeth not just for cosmetic reasons but oral health reasons as well. Today, you don’t have to necessarily settle for traditional metal braces just to get the job done. With clear aligners in Pembroke Pines from Dr. Friedland’s dental office, you too can achieve straight teeth in less time without metal hardware. Call his dental office to schedule your next consultation!
Clear aligner treatment requires wearing a series of custom-made trays over the span of several months. Each stage of your treatment is represented by a different pair of aligners, each of which mirrors a specific step of your realignment. You’ll need to wear each pair of aligners for about 22 hours per day and then switch to the next pair until you complete your entire series. Once finished, you’ll wear a retainer for a set period of time to ensure your smile stays in its newly straightened position.
