Why Clear Aligners
Clear aligners are an effective cosmetic treatment that we offer to noticeably enhance your smile. Straightening your teeth with clear aligners will make your smile more aesthetically pleasing, uniform, and, in many cases, functional. If you have a misaligned bite and you experience headaches, jaw pain, or uneven tooth wear that is making your teeth extra brittle or sensitive, clear aligners could go a long way towards resolving these issues.
Misaligned teeth can be harder to clean properly, especially if there is crowding, because your toothbrush can’t get in between your teeth very well. It can also be much more difficult to floss properly if the spaces between your teeth are too tight for the floss to get in and do its job. Misaligned teeth are also more prone to breaking and chipping because they are subject to additional stress when chewing. After using clear aligners as part of your comprehensive treatment plan, all of these issues could disappear!
Benefits of Clear Aligners for Adults

- Typically shorter treatment time than other types of braces
- Can correct overbite, underbite, crossbite, crowding, and gaps
- Easier to care for and clean than other types of braces
- Removable for eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, and photos
- Fully customized and modeled to fit your teeth precisely
How Clear Aligners Work
Clear aligners, also called clear braces, are made of high-quality, clear plastic that is molded to fit your teeth very precisely. They work just like any type of braces in that, as you wear them, the aligners put gentle pressure on your teeth, gradually moving them into place. The main difference between clear aligners and traditional braces, however, is that they are virtually invisible on your teeth and you can take them out any time you need to! That’s right, you can take them out to eat, drink, brush, floss, and for special occasions when you don’t want anyone to know you’re getting dental treatment.
Clear aligners are super convenient and comfortable to wear. You’ll replace your aligners with a new set every 2 weeks or so, and the old set just gets thrown away. There are no wires or brackets to poke or scrape your mouth, and there are no adjustments required. Of course, Dr. Barganier will want to see you occasionally during your treatment to make sure everything is going according to plan and that you are happy with the progress you see.
