Orthodontics with Clear Aligners


Straighten your smile discreetly and comfortably! No matter your age, by using clear aligners, your team at Dental Associates—Alsip can help create the smile you have been dreaming of a reality.

Clear aligners are thin, clear trays made to fit your teeth while creating a straighter smile. They can also alleviate other oral health problems such as excessive plaque and tartar build-up and can help ensure long-term oral health.



What to Expect

Your dentist will carefully examine your teeth and gums to determine if you are an ideal candidate, after which, you will discuss the timeline, how many aligners you will need, and treatment costs.

Wearing clear aligners are simple! Once you pick up your first set of aligners, you will wear them for a minimum of 22 hours for two weeks. Patients will return to the clinic every two to four weeks to pick up the next set of aligners and to check on their progress.


How it Works

Aligners are designed to make small movements by putting gentle pressure on your teeth. Because the changes are small, treatment with clear aligner is gentler and more comfortable than traditional braces.
