An orthodontist is a specialist in straightening teeth and aligning jaws. They have advanced training in orthodontics and spend 100% of their time helping patients achieve healthier smiles and better self-esteem by identifying, preventing and treating bad bites (malocclusions).
Clear aligners are sets of clear plastic trays that you change out every couple of weeks. They are the least noticeable form of orthodontic appliances. You can also brush, floss, and eat normally, as long as you wear the trays for at least 22 hours per day. Aligners are not appropriate for all types of tooth movement, but if your smile qualifies, they’ll work great! A trained TAO orthodontic specialist is best suited to advise you on whether or not you are a candidate. 🦷✨
