Clear aligners are a revolutionary new way to straighten your teeth without braces! At Lutke Dental, we use Clear Correct aligners that are made of a clear, BPA-free plastic material. They are virtually invisible when worn on the teeth, making them a more discreet alternative to traditional braces. The aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth and gradually shift them into their desired positions. Because the aligners are transparent, most people won’t notice you’re wearing them! No metal wires or brackets means no pain – just many smiles.
The process begins with a consultation with a Clear Correct provider who will evaluate your teeth and bite to determine if Clear Correct suits you. They will create a customized treatment plan, including a digital 3D representation of your teeth' current position and the final outcome. Based on the treatment plan, a series of custom-made, clear aligners are created specifically for you. These aligners are made of a comfortable, BPA-free plastic material.
You wear each set of aligners for about 1-2 weeks, typically 20-22 hours daily. The aligners gently and gradually exert controlled forces on your teeth, moving them into the desired positions. You can remove the aligners for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will gradually shift into alignment. You must visit your Clear Correct provider periodically to check the progress and receive new aligners. Each set of aligners slightly differs from the previous one, gradually guiding your teeth toward the final position.
