Clear Aligners in Nashville

Improve Your Smile Without Braces

If you want to straighten your teeth but don’t want the hassle of wearing braces, consider getting clear aligners. At Braces By Dr. Ruth, we offer Invisalign ®. Our aligners are transparent and fit nicely over your teeth, so no one will even notice you wearing them. And, even better, many patients find the clear aligners to be more comfortable than traditional braces, as they can easily be removed for eating and oral hygiene. At Braces By Dr. Ruth, we offer different brands of clear aligners in Nashville as an alternative to braces.

You can learn about your treatment options during a consultation with Dr. Ruth. Call (615) 323-2026 to schedule an appointment.

How Clear Aligners Work

The first step to getting clear aligners is taking impressions of your teeth. Our caring, talented dentist will use 3D computer imaging technology to map out the positioning of your teeth, from where you are now until the teeth are moved into proper positioning. This information is used to create a series of aligners to move your teeth.

All of Our Aligners Offer Advantages That Include:

  • An invisible dental appliance that is less noticeable
  • Removable when you need to eat or brush your teeth
  • Improved comfort – less likely to irritate gums and cheeks
  • Prevention of grinding and wearing of the teeth
  • No abrasions in your mouth caused by metal brackets
  • Fewer visits to the office because you will receive trays in advance and shorter treatment times

Patients are required to wear their clear aligners for at least 22 hours per day. You can remove them for eating, drinking, brushing your teeth, and flossing. Each aligner will be worn for about two weeks, and then you will switch to the next aligner in the series so your teeth can gradually move into the correct position. The treatment time varies, but is typically the same as traditional braces for teens and about a year for adults.

Creating a Custom Treatment Plan for Clear Aligners in Nashville

Dr. Ruth uses the molds and 3D imaging to create a customized treatment plan for clear aligners for each patient. However, it is important to note that not all teeth are moved at once. The aligners straighten the teeth a couple at a time until the desired result has been achieved. You will need to visit the office about every six weeks so we can evaluate how the treatment is progressing and adjust the treatment plan if needed.

Please call (615) 323-2026 to schedule an appointment and learn if clear aligners, like Invisalign ® will produce the result you want.
