Orthodontic Clear Aligners in Sioux Falls, SD
Looking for nearly invisible orthodontic treatment in Sioux Falls? Clear aligners are a system of specialized orthodontic appliances that gradually shift teeth into place using a series of removable, clear plastic trays. Clear aligners are also known as invisible braces or clear braces and are made of a strong plastic material that fits snugly over the teeth.
At Kusek Family & Implant Dentistry, we use top technologies to ensure our clear aligners are custom-made to fit each patient’s teeth, providing top clear aligner services near Sioux Falls and beyond!
What Can Clear Aligners Correct?
Orthodontic aligners are designed to remove teeth in a gradual, controlled manner. The clear aligners exert consistent pressure on your teeth. Over time, this pressure will slowly and gently shift your teeth into place.
Aligners can help to correct common teeth issues that include:
- Teeth Crowding
- Teeth Spacing
- ...and more!
What are the Benefits of Clear Aligners?
Compared to traditional metal braces, clear aligners are more convenient, comfortable, and unobtrusive. They also require fewer follow-up visits to our Sioux Falls dental office. Above all, clear aligners are transparent, so they’re barely noticeable when you’re wearing them, unlike the metal brackets and wires that come with traditional orthodontics. Clear aligners are also removable, which means you can take them out to easily eat, drink, brush, and floss.
How Do Clear Aligners Straighten Teeth?
Clear aligners work by gently applying pressure on the teeth to move them into position. The aligners are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely engineered to gradually move your teeth. You wear each one for two weeks, then move on to the next set in the series. Each set is shaped differently, so your teeth continue to move bit by bit. Wear your aligners 20–22 hours a day and remove them to eat, brush and floss. This ensures that the aligners work properly.
The amount of time that clear aligners take to work depends on the patient and on the severity of the misalignment. However, most cases are completed within six months to 1 year, which is much shorter than traditional braces.
How Much Does Orthodontic Treatment with Clear Aligners Cost?
The average out-of-pocket cost for braces and orthodontic treatment systems, like Invisalign, vary depending on the following criteria:
- The system selected
- Your treatment timelines
- Forms of necessary post or pre-orthodontic care
At Kusek Family & Implant Dentistry, we are committed to providing fair and honest braces cost breakdowns to all patients. We work with most major dental insurance companies, and accept no-interest or low-interest financing plans through CareCredit® and Cherry.
