Clear Aligner Therapy
Post Falls, ID

Straighten your teeth discreetly, without metal braces. Whether you have never had orthodontics, or you have had braces but are still unhappy with your look, we can customize clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth without anyone else being aware. At Woodland Family Dental PC, we understand that not all of our patients seek that awkward teenage look. We can help you get the look you want.

By scheduling an evaluation, we can help determine if clear aligners are right for you. With this system, we can assist patients with a broad range of teeth placement issues including: mild crooked teeth issues, patients who have protruding teeth and gaps between their teeth. Following your evaluation, we will better be able to determine if we can help with a malocclusion, an overbite, or an underbite. At your appointment, Dr. David Welton or Dr. Sunnshine Welton can help determine if clear aligners are right for your situation.

What are Clear Braces?

Clear aligners are a modern take on metal braces. No brackets, no wires, and far fewer dental appointments. This process is done by creating multiple molds that are customized to you. Dr. David Welton or Dr. Sunnshine Welton will begin with a thorough dental exam, including 3D x-rays and inquiring with you your desired result. Together, you will discuss and review the projected end result which can be viewed on a screen. With a treatment plan decided on, we will order your custom aligners through a dental lab for fabrication. Patients love this system because the aligners are clear and they are not required to come in for tightenings, as you are with metal braces, so there are very few required office visits.

The aligners are made of a smooth, BPA-free plastic that will feel comfortable, and won't irritate your soft tissues including cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces are known to do. We will check your aligners for proper fit and then schedule appointments as needed.

With your new aligners, you begin treatment with your teeth in their current placement, and then after a couple of weeks the patient changes to the next aligner in the series which will have a small difference, forcing your teeth to very slowly shift. The last aligner in the series will be the final placement that you saw when creating your dental plan.

Aligner Benefits

Our adult patients love this discreet teeth straightening system. The benefits include:

•  No wires and no brackets, meaning no food stuck in wires or brackets, and no brackets cutting up the soft tissue of your mouth.
•  Because we do not need to tighten wires, there is less time in the dental chair.
•  We ask that patients wear their aligners for at least 22 hours a day, but, the aligners are removable for those occasional special events.
•  Since you remove your aligners when you eat, you do not have to adjust your diet, or stop eating the sticky or crunchy foods you love.
•  Brackets and braces make it hard to brush and floss. With aligners, you simply remove them to brush the teeth underneath and then brush the aligner.
•  With clear aligners, the dental work being done is discreet, no one needs to know you have it.
