About the Procedure

Orthodontic appliance fabrication2 is a non-surgical, comfortable process that requires upper and lower impressions of your teeth for complete and maximum accuracy such as in the case of Clear Correct aligners, orthodontic retainers, or bleaching trays.

Who Is a Candidate

A candidate for orthodontic fabrication is typically an individual with crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth. Other signs that a person may need orthodontic fabrication include:

  • Excessive overbite
  • Underbite
  • Jaw misalignment
  • Gaps between the teeth.

At Boca Perio Implants we evaluate each patient to determine if they are a candidate and what treatment options are available.

Benefits of Appliance Fabrication

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a functional appliance in orthodontics?

Functional appliances use pressure to correct an abnormal jaw growth pattern by working the muscles in the jaw.

What are the different types of orthodontic appliances?

  • Retainers help maintain the newly corrected teeth position after braces are removed.
  • Clear aligners are a series of custom-made removable trays made from smooth plastic material that fits snugly over a patient’s teeth.
  • Headgear is an external device used to move the teeth and jaws into better alignment. It can also be used to reduce overbites or protruding upper teeth.
  • Expanders are used to widen the arch for all the teeth to fit correctly while palatal cribs help with speech impediments caused by an overly narrow palate.

How much are Clear Correct aligners?

The cost of Straumann Clear Correct aligners will vary from patient to patient. Treatment costs will depend on your desired outcome and the number of consultations and aligners required to achieve a beautiful smile!

Will someone show me how to clean aligners?

Yes, you can clean your Clear Correct aligners with a soft-bristled toothbrush, non-abrasive toothpaste and cool water. It’s important to keep your clear aligners clean as they are worn directly against your teeth and gums, which means bacteria and plaque can build up over time if not cleaned properly.

Are clear aligners better than braces?

Braces have traditionally been used to move teeth into proper alignment. However, some people find them uncomfortable due to their bulky size. Clear Correct aligners offer a more aesthetically pleasing treatment alternative by being virtually invisible when worn and having no metal brackets or wires; plus they’re removable so eating isn’t an issue either!

Can clear aligners fix an overbite?

Yes. Straumann Clear Correct aligners can fix an overbite – but only if it is not too severe. An overbite occurs when the upper teeth overlap too much with the lower teeth (also known as malocclusion). If an overbite is mild enough, clear aligners could correct it without any other treatment methods, such as surgery.

Are the materials used to make Clear Correct aligners safe?

The Straumann Clear Correct aligners are created using a polyurethane resin of the utmost quality, designed to be resistant to cracking, staining and impact damage. This appliance is constructed with the highest level of precision and rigorously tested to ensure its biocompatibility and is FDA-approved and BPA-free.
