Many of our patients are interested in treatment with clear aligners to straighten their teeth and improve their bite without traditional braces. We are proud to offer expert treatment with clear aligners for our adult and teen patients at both of our trusted Scottsdale and Payson locations. We combine digital orthodontic treatment planning with years of experience to provide the highest level of personalized care for exceptional results. Clear aligners can correct multiple orthodontic issues, and they are very popular with our patients because rather than using metal brackets and wires to guide the teeth into place, these aligners use a series of clear trays to carefully align the teeth and adjust the bite comfortably and gently. In addition, clear aligners can be removed easily to eat meals and to brush and floss the teeth, which promotes better dental hygiene.
If you choose to receive treatment with clear aligners at Winterholler Dental Implants & Cosmetic Dentistry, you will have a comprehensive dental exam during which we will use the latest 3D-imaging techniques to create digital impressions of your teeth and jaws. Next, we virtually map out the entire treatment process in advance, planning every small adjustment to be made for an optimal result. You will receive a custom series of aligners that are typically worn for about 1–2 weeks each before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved. The length of time it takes to get your picture-perfect smile varies from patient to patient—for most, the treatment time is just under one year with quick and easy appointments about every six weeks so that we can assess your progress. At your complimentary consultation, you can find out if treatment with clear aligners is the best way to achieve the results you desire.

What are the benefits of clear aligners?
Treatment with clear aligners is a very popular choice for straightening teeth and correcting the bite for many reasons, including the following:
- They are nearly invisible.
- Many patients will find that they are candidates.
- They are effective for many orthodontic conditions including gapped teeth, tooth crowding, overbite, underbite, open bite, and crossbite.
- They are completely removable for the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment and brush and floss your teeth normally.
- They are more comfortable than traditional braces—no metal brackets or wires to poke your sensitive oral structures.
- Appointments during treatment are typically quick and easy.
- You can see a virtual display of your results before you start your treatment.
- Since the aligners are removable, you don’t have to wait until your treatment is complete to see your smile change.
When you come to us for treatment with clear aligners, you can be confident that you will receive care by experienced doctors at every step of your journey, and that you will have superior, long-lasting results for a smile you can be proud of for years to come.
