Orthodontics & Clear Aligners Q&A

What are orthodontics and clear aligners?

Orthodontics care at OneSource Dental of South Tampa uses braces or clear plastic aligners to shift crooked teeth into a desirable alignment. When choosing clear aligners, you don’t have to deal with metal brackets and wires. You can take the plastic aligners out of your mouth as needed, and because they are clear, many people won’t notice you have them in your mouth.

What are the benefits of orthodontics and clear aligners?

The benefits associated with orthodontics and clear aligners available at OneSource Dental of South Tampa include:

  • Beautiful smile
  • Straight teeth
  • No tooth gaps
  • Easier teeth cleaning
  • Comfortable, better-aligned bite
  • Self-confidence
  • Lower risk of future oral health problems

Whether you choose braces or clear aligners, you can expect exceptional cosmetic dental results with the help of the OneSource Dental of South Tampa team.

Are orthodontics and clear aligners right for me?

 After discussing your desired results, oral health history, and symptoms, your OneSource Dental of South Tampa specialists will let you know if you’re a candidate for orthodontics and clear aligners. They examine your mouth and often recommend dental X-rays before tailoring an orthodontics treatment best suited for your needs.

What should I expect during orthodontics treatment?

 Your dentist digitally scans your mouth to develop custom-fitted clear aligners or bonds metal brackets to your teeth, along with wires, to begin straightening your teeth into an ideal position. 

If you receive aligners, you can wear them all day and at night, except when you eat, brush your teeth, and floss. After a week or two, or as directed by your dentist, switch to the next set of aligners in your treatment series.

After you complete orthodontics and clear aligners treatment, you might need to wear a removable or permanent retainer to keep your teeth in their new position long-term.

How long is orthodontics and clear aligners treatment?

Orthodontics and clear aligners offer the smile of your dreams in as little as six months, up to two years in some cases. However, every patient has unique needs. The OneSource Dental of South Tampa team lets you know how long your treatment should last and what to expect during and after orthodontics care.
