Frequently Asked Questions
The treatment involves wearing clear, plastic trays that are custom-designed for your mouth. On day-one customers receive all aligner trays to be used throughout the treatment plan. Each aligner will make slight adjustments to tooth position, a process that is mapped out in advance by the dental lab we work with and then reviewed and approved by Dr. Cronin. You’ll begin wearing a new set of aligners as directed by your prescribed treatment plan, typically every two weeks, advancing you to the next stage of your treatment. Learn more about clear aligners.
Our dental assistants use a highly accurate 3D intraoral scanner to capture a digital map of your smile, including your teeth and gum lines. This 3D image helps us determine if our aligners are a fit for your smile and allows our lab to work with the doctor overseeing your case in creating your personalized treatment plan.
Fixing crowding or spacing changes your bite. To keep the bite correct, the doctors in our network recommend treating the other arch, too. If you’re correcting crowding in one arch, you have to widen the shape of the opposing teeth to match or the bite can be affected. The same principal is true for correcting spacing in your teeth. As gaps are closed, the shape of the arch changes. The arches need to be symmetrical to ensure a good bite, so the bottom teeth may need to be adjusted, even if you’re primarily concerned with a gap in only one arch. Not only can ignoring the opposing arch cause issues with the bite, it can also result in dental relapse.
