Clear Aligners – How they move teeth to create a beautiful smiles

Clear Braces Sacramento California

Crooked teeth and poor bite are oral health problems that can cause tooth decay, gum disease, teeth wear and many other issues. If you are unhappy about the way your teeth are aligned and want to get it fixed, orthodontic treatment solutions can help you. Orthodontics is the specialization of dental medicine which involves the study of the position of teeth in a relationship one another and the way the upper and lower teeth come together in a bite. When our dentist notices a problem in the way teeth are aligned or the bite exists, he/she recommends orthodontic treatments to move the teeth in planned direction. Clear aligners are one of the advanced orthodontic systems of aligners we use in this regard. They have a few advantages over dental braces when it comes to appearance and comfort. But are all cases treatable using clear aligners? How does our dentist find out the right orthodontic treatment for you at Sacramento office? The following write-up sheds some light in this regard. Call our office to make an appointment and speak to our dentist for more information related to clear aligners.

The principle of clear aligners

Clear aligners were designed with an aim to treat minor orthodontic issues. The dental lab moulds plastic aligners to precision and sends it to our Sacramento office. Initially, each pair of aligners misfit the bite of the person and the patient may experience some amount of discomfort during the first few days. The gradual pressure applied by aligners moves the teeth in the planned direction. This occurs step-by-step, so a patient may be provided 12 to 18 pair of aligners.

When the clear aligners are fit over teeth, they move specific teeth at the roots in such a way that there is resorption of jawbone tissues on one side and there is bone tissue growth on the other. This takes place step by step and the patient can see the change in the smile over a span of time.

Clear aligners – Treatable cases

Most of the websites of clear aligner products claim that they can be used to treat almost all varieties of orthodontic problems. Our dentist takes impressions of teeth and lets patients know if they are the specific case can be treated. Clear aligners are a wonderful option to move teeth in mild to moderate orthodontic cases. It is important for patients to adhere to using clear aligners for at least 22 hours of a day in order to achieve the expected results.

Patient Testimonials

Beautiful office, friendly staff, terrific dental care.

by Trevor Derrett

Had a great visit today and got to know the people that work there. They made me feel comfortable as the change of ownership is taking place.

by Bonnie Schrader

I am so impressed with the entire experience. From the friendly reminders, to entering the office, and especially the dentist! My previous dentist Stephen C Ott, DDS, was incredible. I had the benefits of his gift since 1971. I was worried about finding a new dentist. However, I was blessed to have Dr. Ott recommend his dentist: Dr. Lillian Stojic. I recommend her to all!!!

I've been seeing dr stojic since I moved to town 18 years ago, my whole family has transitioned over there and I love the whole team! Keep up the great work!

Dr. Lilliana and her staff make getting teeth cleaned and a cavity filled as good an experience as possible. They get the job done with minimal pain and discomfort.

I just had a visit to Dr. Stojic's office. My ten year old daughter had an infected tooth that had to be extracted. She was so nervous and scared at the possibility of an extraction. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by her office manager and then by her equally kind assistant who brought us back to her room...

Dr. Lilliana and her staff are not only effective and efficient, but they also remove my anxiety. When I had to have a root canal, I was nervous about the pain. I was given the choice of Nitrous oxide gas and that calmed me.

by Gail M.

Dr. Stojic saw two of my children. The youngest was so comforted by her easygoing and confident demeanor that he was the quietest and most still 4 year old I've seen in a dentist chair! Our older son was very afraid of the dentist and has been to a couple other dentists who were unable to treat him because of his scared behavior. Dr. Stojic was very patient and helped him understand what she was doing at every step, which calmed him down so she was able to fill his cavities and even extract a tooth. We were thoroughly impressed with Dr. Stojic and her office and staff.
