Clear Aligners in Parma
Orthodontics are an excellent way to straighten your teeth. While orthodontic treatments are used to straighten teeth for an enhanced smile, they can also help restore functionality to teeth, jaw, and bite.
The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that all children should have an evaluation with an orthodontist by the age of 7 regardless of how many teeth have erupted.
This is because orthodontists are able to predict any structural changes that may occur as your child gets older. Addressing such structural changes with clear aligners can save your child’s smile and also prevent any additional dental issues down the road.
What is Clear Aligner Treatment?
Clear aligner treatment refers to a series of clear dental appliances that are formed to the shape of a patient's teeth. Clear aligners gradually improve appearance and function by applying gentle, consistent pressure to a patient's teeth, which stimulates osteoclastic & osteoblastic activity.
Clear aligners are popular because they can do a lot of the things traditional orthodontics can do, more discreetly and conveniently.
Many tooth movements are possible with clear aligners, and most types of malocclusion can be improved with clear aligner therapy. However, some cases are still better-suited for traditional braces, or a combination of techniques.
