Unpacking the Value of Clear Aligners

February 22, 2022

As we enter the season of growth and new beginnings, you may be contemplating ways to refresh your smile. There’s no time like the present, right?    

Armed with deep experience and cutting-edge technology, the team at Walker Orthodontics works side by side with patients to custom design treatment plans with their unique needs in mind – never compromising comfort and convenience in their quest for exceptional results. With an approach that is both high-tech and high-touch, we specialize in treatments that are low-visibility and low-stress.

While there are multiple treatment options to choose from, here’s why clear aligners, such as Invisalign and other Walker Orthodontics-approved clear aligner options, may be the best solution for you:

  • They’re nearly undetectable to the eye. Clear aligners are virtually invisible, so you can confidently put your best smile forward in any situation. While they’re already quite subtle, you can always opt to remove them for special occasions, big presentations, photoshoots or other important milestones.
  • Specialized expertise in aligner therapy. As the Murrayhill area’s only American Board of Orthodontics-certified practitioner, Dr. Walker has extensive training and expertise in the latest innovations and technological advancements, including clear aligner therapy. You can rest easy, knowing your treatment plan was designed by a specialized expert with a proven track record for efficient, precise, effective and deeply connected care.
  • Patient-first, digitally customized design. Dr. Walker leverages a digitally advanced, 3D imaging technology and software to create custom-made invisible and removable aligners. This system programs, analyzes and makes micro-adjustments to the aligner design based on the patient’ individual tooth movements and bite changes. This means that these are specifically designed to shift teeth gradually and comfortably into place to shape your perfect smile.
  • With customization comes adaptability. In unique circumstances, we can use a hybrid technique, adding braces to complement the work of the aligners when needed to treat complex tooth movements.
  • Say goodbye to time-intensive at-home care. Clear aligners make cleaning a breeze. The aligners can easily be removed when it’s time to eat, brush or floss, resulting in less food restrictions during treatment. With braces, certain foods must be completely omitted from your diet or modified. For more information on aligner maintenance, check out our blog on why teamwork makes a dream smile work.
  • Fewer office visits, more time for what you love. Because so much of the work is done digitally by Dr. Walker, clear aligner treatment requires fewer office visits to achieve the confident smile you deserve.

Whether you choose clear aligners or low maintenance braces this spring, Dr. Walker will help chart the path toward a healthy and stunning smile.
