What are clear aligners?

Woman holding up tray of SureSmile clear braces in Champaign ILClear aligners are a popular alternative to traditional metal braces and help slowly and gently guide teeth into their desired alignment.

Like braces, clear plastic aligners gradually control the movement of your teeth, but without visible and noticeable metal brackets or wires.

Aligners are, instead, made of a smooth, BPA-free plastic that doesn't cut cheeks, lips, or gums. Dr. Scott Anderson, Dr. John Anderson, or Dr. Cesar Alburez custom fabricate your aligners to fit your mouth perfectly. In a series of aligners, each new set moves your teeth incrementally until the next set is placed. 

Patients must wear clear braces in Champaign, IL for at least 20 hours every day in order for the teeth to properly realign. Treatment time depends on the severity of teeth misalignment, among other factors.
