Oral Health

Aligners not only enhance the appearance of your smile but also promote optimal oral health. By gently shifting your teeth into alignment, aligners help reduce the risk of common dental issues such as gum disease, cavities, and abnormal wear on tooth enamel.

Lower Impact on Lifestyle

Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners offer a lower impact on your daily life. With their removable design, aligners allow you to enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions and maintain your regular oral hygiene routine with ease. Plus, fewer office visits mean less disruption to your busy schedule.

What are Aligners?

Aligners, typically favored by adults and older teens, offer a discreet and convenient alternative to traditional braces. Led by Dr. Gallagher's expertise, our team will conduct a thorough examination to determine if aligners are the right choice for you or if braces would be more suitable. Join us as we explore the transformative potential of aligner therapy and pave the way towards a straighter, more confident smile.

What age groups are suitable for SureSmile® aligners?
Aligners are typically recommended for adults and older teenagers who have fully developed teeth and jaws. While aligner therapy may also be suitable for some younger patients, it's essential to consult with our team to determine the best course of treatment for your individual needs.
How long can I expect aligner treatment to last?
The duration of aligner treatment varies based on factors such as the complexity of your case and your adherence to wearing the aligners as prescribed. Generally, treatment can range from several months to a few years. During your initial consultation, we'll develop a personalized treatment plan and provide you with a timeline tailored to your specific goals.
Will I experience discomfort with aligners?
Discomfort associated with aligners is typically mild and temporary, occurring primarily when you first start wearing them or switch to a new set. This sensation is indicative of the aligners gently shifting your teeth into alignment. If discomfort persists, over-the-counter pain relievers and orthodontic wax can offer relief. Rest assured, our team will equip you with strategies to ensure your aligner treatment is as comfortable as possible.
