Enjoy the Convenience of Removable Orthodontic Aligners

Invisible aligners are a modern way to address problems with your teeth. If you choose this solution, you won’t have to deal with wearing brackets and wires or with uncomfortable adjustments. Instead, you will follow these simple steps:

  • Your custom aligners are made based on the issues you want to correct. We can even give you a smile preview so you can see what your proposed changes will look like.
  • Your aligners are made for you at a special lab. You will wear each set of aligners for a few weeks, then replace them with the next ones in your series.
  • You will visit us occasionally, so we can ensure your treatment is progressing as planned.
  • When your teeth are where you want them to be, you will wear a retainer for a while to keep your teeth in their proper position.

Since your invisible aligners are made from clear plastic, most people won’t realize you are wearing anything over your teeth. They also are easy to remove and put on. You do need to wear them most of the time, but you can take them out during meals and for your daily brushing and flossing. No more struggling to floss around wires!

Let us help you find the right clear aligners in Elizabethtown, KY. Call either location today at 270-491-3768 (Lakewood) or 270-200-6225 (Lincoln Trail) or schedule online to get started with a consultation at Harvey and Nichols Family Dentistry.

Common Questions About Clear Aligners

What makes clear aligners different than standard braces?

Unlike traditional braces that use metal brackets, bands, and wires, we can straighten your teeth using clear plastic teeth aligners. You simply slide the aligners over your teeth and wear them for at least 20-22 hours a day. You can freely remove aligners for eating, brushing, or a special occasion, so long as you put them back in when you’re done.

Who would clear aligners not work for?

Clear aligners can address many of the same issues as conventional braces. However, not everyone is a candidate for a clear aligners treatment program. Sometimes the severity of problems requires a more intensive solution. That said, you will never know the best way forward for your unique situation until you schedule a consultation appointment with us.

How long do clear aligners take?

On average, this treatment takes 12 to 18 months. Your exact length of treatment will depend on your unique situation. Once we’ve had a chance to examine your teeth and work up a treatment plan at a consultation, we can give you a better idea of how long your treatment will take. We’ll make sure you know what to expect before your orthodontic care begins.

Are clear aligners visible?

Barely. Unlike classic braces made of stark metal brackets and wires, these modern orthodontic aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, clear plastic that is virtually invisible. This means you won’t draw any unwanted attention to the construction zone in your mouth, and there won’t be any awkward questions or stares from onlookers during your months of treatment.
