About Teeth Aligners
A lot of patients 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, striking smile. Invisible teeth straightening trays are tight fitting covers for the teeth created with see through plastic or acrylic material that delicately straightens 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 usually preferred by patients over traditional orthodontics since they are hardly noticed and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Novi Twelve Oaks in Novi, MI discuss teeth straightening alternatives, such as clear teeth aligners during regular appointments.

"Where do I begin? Well, my visit to another dentist, Howell Family Dentist, was unpleasant and overwhelming for me. As a result, I immediately called DentalWorks of Novi and to my delight I spoke with Laura. She patiently listened to my problem and politely reassured me that Dr. Rice would answer all of my questions. Today I met with Dr. Rice at DentalWorks-Novi and the meeting was educational and efficient. I now have a much better plan in place with help from EVERYONE. All in all, I will recommend this office to family and friends. Respectfully,Scott"- S.R. / Yelp / Aug 24, 2017

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 leave our office with several sets of trays at their orthodontic visit and our dentists will confirm 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 scheduled appointment at DentalWorks - Novi Twelve Oaks.
The number of weeks that a patient wears each phase of aligners is tailored based on the specific needs of each person. The estimated timeframe needed is always discussed by our dentists during the consultation. The trays will be worn daily until the teeth are straight. A thorough analysis at DentalWorks - Novi Twelve Oaks will be provided at each appointment so that the straightening can be measured. Our dentists will consult with 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 specific amount of the orthodontic aligners may be paid for. Our insurance coordinators at DentalWorks - Novi Twelve Oaks will talk to the patient's insurance contact to gain insight into their benefits and give an accurate estimate of the patient's out-of-pocket fees. Customers who do not have dental insurance for orthodontics treatment, may consider DentalWorks - Novi Twelve Oaks's different payment opportunities.
