Clear Aligner Therapy
Clear aligner therapy has changed the orthodontics scene by offering a way to straighten teeth without any brackets or wires. Instead, it’s all about a series of clear, removable aligners (also called trays) that gently and gradually move teeth into specific positions. teeth you’re replacing. We can even stabilize dentures with dental implants so you won’t have to fuss with adhesives anymore to keep them in place!
Our dental practice offers ClearCorrect™ aligner therapy. With ClearCorrect, you’ll wear your custom-made trays for a majority of the day and then swap them out for the next set every couple of weeks. Throughout your treatment, you’ll come in to see us about every six weeks for a quick check-in, and you’ll get to see your teeth getting straighter and straighter as you make your way through the aligners.

Why is it important to straighten my teeth?
Straighter teeth are associated with a more attractive smile, which can lead to a big boost in self-confidence. There’s another side to having straight teeth, too: When you don’t have crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth, it’s much easier to keep them clean, reducing your chance of cavities and gum disease. Misaligned teeth also can make it difficult to chew properly, and in some cases, can even result in jaw pain. When you decide to straighten your teeth, you’re choosing a beautiful smile and improved oral health.
How do I know which orthodontic option is right for me?
One of the main factors in deciding which orthodontic treatment is right for you is how much correction your teeth need. For example, traditional braces might be the best choice for patients requiring a lot of teeth straightening. Then, there’s of course financials to consider. Metal and ceramic braces are generally cheaper than aligner therapy. When you come to Leesburg Family Dental for your orthodontic consultation, we’ll go over all of the options with you to help you make a confident, informed decision.
How much will orthodontic treatment cost?
Like we mentioned a bit in the previous question, the cost of orthodontic treatment varies depending on which method you choose. In general, braces are cheaper than clear aligner therapy. Then within the varieties of braces, metal braces are cheaper than ceramic ones. We’ll discuss the costs of each treatment type you’re considering so you’ll know ahead of time what to expect.
