About Teeth Aligners
Some men and women 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, pretty smile. Invisible teeth straightening trays are tight fitting covers for the teeth created with see through plastic or acrylic material that delicately repositions 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 typically preferred by patients over traditional orthodontics since they are hardly noticed and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Aurora in Aurora, IL discuss teeth straightening alternatives, such as clear teeth aligners during regular appointments.

"At first I was concerned because of it being so big and multiple locations. I had nothing to be concerned about. The tech and doctor were wonderful. Because of it's size they are a one stop shop. I will be needing oral surgery and the surgeon was able to stop in and consult so I did not have to come back. Everyone that I dealt with was very nice and friendly."- R.M. / Yelp / Mar 09, 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 take home several sets of trays at their orthodontic visit and our dentists will verify 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 brief appointment at DentalWorks - Aurora.
The number of weeks that a patient wears each phase of aligners will be different based on the specific needs of each person. The estimated timeframe needed is usually discussed by our dentists during the consultation. The trays will be worn daily until the teeth are straight. Progression checks at DentalWorks - Aurora will be provided at each appointment so that the straightening can be measured. Our dentists will reassure 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, a certain percentage of the orthodontic aligners may be paid for. Our billing managers at DentalWorks - Aurora will talk to the patient's insurance contact to understand their benefits and give an accurate estimate of the patient's out-of-pocket fees. Those who do not have dental insurance for orthodontics treatment, may consider DentalWorks - Aurora's different payment programs.
