Our Custom Clear Aligners vs. Invisalign
Smile like you just don't care--because you don't!
Clear aligners custom made for you at Ross Dental cost significantly less than Invisalign and other big brand names.
First we scan a 3D image of your teeth and digitally transfer the scan to a computer.
Next, 3D printing is used to create staged models of your teeth.
Finally, a pressure thermoforming machine presses the heated plastic around the models for a precise fit.
We use the same technology and safe, FDA-approved materials used by Clear Correct & Invisalign use to create their alignment trays, for hundreds of dollars less.
Clear aligners work like any other orthodontic appliance, they apply pressure that gradually moves the teeth and reshapes the supporting bone. Each tooth is surrounded by a periodontal ligament. This ligament is surrounded by fluid and tiny fibers that connect the teeth to the surrounding bone. As soon as the aligner is put on, it starts applying pressure to the targeted teeth. After only a few seconds the fluid is expressed from the ligament and the tooth moves ever so slightly into its position. The ligament is only about a quarter of a millimeter thick, so the tooth can only be adjusted a tiny distance at a time. The pressure from the aligner compresses blood vessels on one side and dilates them on the other, and after a few days, this stress causes the ligament to produce bone cells called Osteoclasts and Osteoblasts. Osteoclasts break down the bone on the compressed side, meanwhile, Osteoblasts build new bone on the opposite side to prevent the tooth from becoming too loose.
If this process is interrupted for any prolonged length of time, the cells lose their progress and have to start over. That’s why it’s recommended to keep the aligner on for 22 hours a day. If the bone doesn’t get reshaped, the teeth won’t stay straight. Once the bone is rebuilt to its new shape, it’s time to take out the aligners and begin the new set. The length of this process can vary from person to person, taking longer for adults than children or adolescents. Each aligner moves the teeth a little bit further until it reaches that last step of the treatment, and you have the perfect smile.
