About Teeth Aligners
Quite a few individuals didn't need or weren't able to get braces as a child, but they may still have some spacing or crowding issues that prevent them from having a straight, beautiful smile. Invisible teeth aligners are custom made covers for the teeth manufactured with clear plastic or acrylic material that gently moves teeth into their proper position. Using a series of aligners over 1 - 2 years, clear teeth aligners can correct mild to moderate crowded teeth and spacing problems for straighter, healthier teeth. This type of orthodontics are often preferred by patients over traditional metal braces since they are hardly noticed and can be taken out for eating, brushing, and flossing. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Louisville in Louisville, KY can go over teeth straightening options, such as clear teeth aligners during regular dental exams.

"Everybody I came into contact with here was awesome and very professional. I had been having terrible wisdom tooth pain (always fun) and they fit me in on the day I called to get it looked at. Getting my wisdom tooth out was relatively painless and Dr. Wofford was great to work with. They even worked with me on my lack of dental insurance and set me up to pay WAY less than I would've expected. I have always been anxious about the dentist, but everyone was so great here I would definitely recommend them to anyone."- M.C. / Yelp / May 21, 2018
What to Expect
Every set of clear aligners are custom made depending on the patient's current teeth position. Each set of aligners are created based on digital X-rays, physical impressions, and photos. The individual will be provided several sets of aligners at their orthodontic visit and our dentists will check to see that the first set fits properly so that adjustments can be made. Our patients should wear the trays as often as possible. The aligners should be taken out for eating and brushing. After several weeks, new aligners will be given during a fast appointment at DentalWorks - Louisville.
The amount of time that a patient wears each set of aligners varies based on the specific needs of each person. The number of trays needed is typically discussed by our dentists during the consultation. The trays will be worn consistently until the teeth are in proper alignment. Evaluations at DentalWorks - Louisville will be provided at each appointment so that the progress can be measured. Our dentists will help patients so they are kept informed of the ongoing progression. Once the teeth are straight, a retainer will be placed on the teeth for lasting results.
Based upon the patient's dental insurance benefits, a portion of the clear teeth aligners may be covered. Our front desk staff at DentalWorks - Louisville will talk to the patient's dental insurance provider to determine their benefits and give a better estimate of the patient's out-of-pocket fees. Individuals who do not have dental insurance for teeth straightening treatment, may consider DentalWorks - Louisville's various payment plans.
