About Teeth Aligners
Some adults did not have the need or weren't able to wear braces during adolescence, but they now experience some spacing or crowding problematic areas that keep them from attaining a straight, attractive smile. Clear teeth orthodontic aligner trays are uniquely designed covers for the teeth made from invisible acrylic, and sometimes plastic material that effectively alters teeth into alignment. Using stages of aligners over a number of months, clear teeth aligners effectively straighten moderately crowded teeth and spacing irregularities for straighter, healthier teeth. Invisible aligner trays are somewhat preferred by adults over traditional visible straightening methods since they are unnoticeable and can be set aside for brushing, flossing, and eating. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Matthews in Matthews, NC explain teeth straightening recommendations, including clear teeth aligners during regular cleanings.

"Was taking my family member to the Eastway Drive location to be seen by Dr Stacey Alston. During that time everything went great. Since then the dentist informed us she'd moved to Matthews location. Cannot speak on this location, but Dr Stacey Alston is absolutely the best! She is wonderful with "dentures " or denture related needs. Family member had a situation & found Dr Alston after another dentist had done a bum job the 1st time. Went to her & she took her time listening to the issues & could clearly see for herself what the probs were. In the end she did a fantastic job correcting & replacing the dentures. Family member is proud of the new & lasting smile! Thank you Dr Stacey Alston!"- R.D. / Google / Aug 08, 2018

What to Expect
Each phase of clear aligners are tailored depending on the individual's existing teeth structure. Each tray of aligners are manufactured based on impressions, X-rays, and images. The patient will start off with 3 - 4 sets of aligning trays at their appointment and our dentists will evaluate that the initial set fits as they should so that any tweaks can be made. Our clients generally wear their aligners as many hours in a day as possible. The alignment trays should be temporarily set aside for brushing, eating, and drinking colored liquids. When one tray has been worn for a specific period of time, the next phase of trays will replace the current set during a short appointment at DentalWorks - Matthews.
The treatment timeframe that an individual has to wear each group of aligners will change based on the unique needs of each person. The progression of trays needed is normally discussed by our dentists at the consultation. the aligners will be worn as often as possible until the teeth are repositioned accordingly. A complete exam at DentalWorks - Matthews will be given at each appointment so that the repositioning can be assessed. Our dentists will provide feedback to patients so they have a full understanding of the ongoing progress. After the teeth are straight, a fixed retainer will be set on the teeth for long-lasting results.
