As an adult, you may have decided to visit our orthodontist for an orthodontic treatment. But you may not have the time for extra office visits or the extra brushing and flossing that come with braces. You probably do not want the menu restrictions or the look of metal braces. If that is the case for you, call Smiles by Smith Orthodontics today at 412-963-7760 to schedule a complimentary consultation. Dr. Bradley D. Smith is a provider for 3M™ Clarity™ aligners in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and would be happy to see you or a family member in the office.
Many people have an understanding of how traditional braces work and know that they are a trusted and common orthodontic technique. However, braces are not the only way to straighten your smile! If you love the idea of realigning your teeth but not the idea of sporting wires and metal in your mouth, ask our orthodontist if you might be a good candidate for 3M Clarity aligners! The 3M Clarity aligners do not use any metal but instead clear aligners customized to fit over your teeth and push them into new positions. You will receive several sets of aligners to switch ever two weeks. Each set of aligners alters the positions of your teeth in small increments, gently guiding them until they are in their proper positions. Our orthodontist and team will monitor your progress regularly to help make sure you reach your smile goals.
3M Clarity aligners can treat many of the orthodontic problems that braces are used to correct, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Bit problems, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite or crossbite
Our orthodontist can let you know during a consultation if your orthodontic issues can be corrected using 3M Clarity aligners. We may recommend this treatment option for adult patients or even teens who wish to straighten their smiles but do not want anyone to know about it. Your 3M Clarity aligners will be designed to fit comfortably in your mouth, and you will be able to remove them for eating, cleaning and special occasions.
If 3M Clarity aligners sound like an exciting option for straightening your teeth, call to schedule a visit and learn more today!
