About Teeth Aligners
A lot of patients 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, striking smile. Clear teeth aligners are custom made covers for the teeth manufactured with clear acrylic, and sometimes plastic material that gently straightens teeth into their proper position. Using a series of aligners over 1 - 2 years, clear teeth aligners can correct moderately crowded teeth and spacing problems for straighter, healthier teeth. This type of orthodontics are usually preferred by adults over traditional metal braces since they are unnoticeable and can be taken out for brushing, flossing, and eating. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills in Pleasant Hills, PA can go over teeth straightening options, including clear teeth aligners during regular dental exams.
"Yesterday was my first time at the location. I had an abscess tooth and was in immediate need of relief. I just walked in and they were able to see me within the hour. Everyone was professional and kind. Since, Dentalworks was not able to remove the tooth, Dr. Gomez gave me a referral for an oral surgeon. The dental team also outlined a variety of procedures that I will need in the future (my teeth are horrible and it has been a while since I saw a dentist.) They all explained why the procedures would be needed versus just telling me about them. I appreciated it quite a lot. The fact I got xrays, a treatment plan, an antibiotic, and a referral immediately and for only a few dollars, I am more than pleased."- J.M. / Google / May 01, 2019

"DentalWorks was great! They took me in 5 minutes before my appointment time for my dental cleaning and exam. The hygienist was very good and the dentist was friendly and very good. They did a procedure on my front teeth to protect the nerve. I didn't need to schedule another appointment. Thanks very much!"- D.M. / Google / Feb 20, 2019

What to Expect
Every set of clear aligners are custom made depending on the individual's current teeth position. Each tray of aligners are created based on impressions, X-rays, and images. The patient will leave our office with 3 - 4 sets of aligners at their appointment and our dentists will confirm that the initial set fits as they should so that adjustments can be made. Our clients should wear their aligners as often as possible. The aligners should be taken out for eating and brushing. After several weeks, new aligners will be given during a scheduled appointment at DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills.
The amount of time that an individual has to wear each set of aligners is tailored based on the unique needs of each person. The number of trays needed is always discussed by our dentists at the consultation. the aligners will be worn consistently until the teeth are in proper alignment. A thorough analysis at DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills will be given at each appointment so that the progress can be assessed. Our dentists will consult with patients so they have a full understanding of the ongoing progress. After the teeth are straight, a retainer will be set on the teeth for lasting results.
Based upon the patient's dental insurance, a specific amount of the clear teeth aligners may be covered.
