Clear Aligners – which ones are the best?
Technological breakthroughs, combined with increased consumer awareness, are driving an explosion in the number of adults seeking orthodontic treatment, specifically clear aligners. Numerous online retailers have emerged in recent years offering low-priced DIY aligners, but patient satisfaction and results have been mixed. The good news is that now you can get the affordable clear aligners you want under the supervision of a certified dental professional you trust. Safety first when it comes to your smile!
Adult Orthodontics are on the Rise
For years, orthodontic care was largely just for kids because few adults wanted to face the stigma of living with traditional braces while undergoing multi-year orthodontic treatment. Adults not fortunate enough to have access to care in childhood suffered both socially and emotionally as a result of their imperfect smiles. Thanks to the clear aligner revolution, all that is changing. Today, adults account for 30% of new orthodontic cases and clear aligners were up 63% between 2019 and 2021. A recent NIH survey indicated that clear aligners are the preferred orthodontic treatment type for 87% of adults.
Which clear aligner should you use?
While clear aligners have been around since the 1990’s, improved materials and increased competition have made them both more affordable and more effective than ever before. It’s important to understand that not all aligner products are created equal. There are some significant differences in design that can have a big impact on patient experience. At Bright Now! Dental, we tested all the major aligner products and are proud to offer Reveal® Clear Aligners, which have many advantages over other brands:
Clarity: Most clear aligners really aren’t that clear. See the image of Reveal® truly clear aligners next to the other aligner brand, and the difference is breathtaking. The clarity of these aligners makes them nearly invisible, and the unique material also helps guard against staining. Drink your coffee and tea without concern!
Comfort: Some aligner products can have rough edges that cause soreness on your gums, cheeks and tongue when you switch trays. Reveal aligners have super-smooth edges that won’t rub you the wrong way.
Attachments: Attachments are little “buttons” that are cemented onto your teeth to grip aligners and aid tooth movement. Reveal clear aligners are firmer and more conformed than other brands, so they require significantly fewer attachments (if any) – a major plus for Bright Now! patients.
Case length: Quicker is better when it comes to achieving the perfect smile. Reveal aligners are made with patented ClearWear® material that optimizes the force level for maximum comfort and speed.
Retainers: Night time retainers are recommended at the completion of all aligner therapy. The good news is that Bright Now! Dental offers your first set of aligners FREE!
Affordable Clear Aligners from Bright Now! Dental
These days no matter what your age or income, there’s no need to put up with misaligned teeth. Straightening your smile can improve your appearance, self-confidence, and even your career opportunities. Plus, crooked teeth often lead to more serious dental health issues such as grinding, periodontal disease and jaw pain, as your dentist or hygienist can explain.
Major online providers of clear aligners offer a one-size-fits-all solution for between $2000 and $2500. Unfortunately, smiles come in all shapes and sizes and what works for one patient may not be right for the next. This is why many at-home or DIY aligner patients fail to achieve their ideal smile.
