About Teeth Aligners
Some adults did not require or weren't able to have braces in their youth, but they now have some spacing or crowding problems that do not allow them to have a straight, attractive smile. Invisible teeth straightening trays are tight fitting covers for the teeth created with see through plastic or acrylic material that delicately alters teeth into a straighter look. Using various sets of aligners over a specified course of time, clear teeth aligners are able to transform mild to moderate crowded teeth and spacing issues for straighter, healthier teeth. Clear aligners are somewhat preferred by patients over traditional orthodontics since they are hardly noticed and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. Our dentists at Family First Dental Care in Plano, TX discuss teeth straightening alternatives, such as clear teeth aligners during regular appointments.

"My wife came here for her dental work and bragged on the office and Dr. Melanie since the first day. She told me I would LOVE them but, I was still skeptical... Boy, was I wrong! The way I was treated when I walked in was amazing. Dr. Melanie was the absolute best! I instantly had nothing but confidence and comfort with ever dental plan she suggested. This is probably the first time I've been excited about ANY dental work. Definitely found my dental home."- C.H. / Google / Dec 07, 2018

What to Expect
Each tray of clear aligners are uniquely fitted depending on the patient's present teeth alignment. Each set of aligners are made based on digital X-rays, physical impressions, and photos. The individual will start off with several sets of trays at their orthodontic visit and our dentists will evaluate that the first set fits properly so that modifications can be made. Our patients need to wear the trays as much as possible. The trays should be removed for brushing and flossing, as well as eating. Within a few weeks, a new set of trays will be provided during a short appointment at Family First Dental Care.
The number of weeks that a patient wears each phase of aligners will change based on the specific needs of each person. The estimated timeframe needed is normally discussed by our dentists during the consultation. The trays will be worn daily until the teeth are straight. A complete exam at Family First Dental Care will be provided at each appointment so that the straightening can be measured. Our dentists will provide feedback to patients so they are kept informed of the ongoing progression. Once the teeth are straight, a permanent retainer device will be placed on the teeth for permanent results.
Depending on the patient's dental insurance benefits, all or some of the orthodontic aligners may be paid for. Our team at Family First Dental Care will talk to the patient's insurance contact to validate their benefits and give an accurate estimate of the patient's out-of-pocket fees. Dental clients who do not have dental insurance for orthodontics treatment, may consider Family First Dental Care's different payment considerations.
