Clear trays, clear results
Imagine getting the radiant, straight smile you've always wanted without the need for traditional braces. Clear aligners fit snugly over your teeth, making eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing a breeze. Invisalign and our in-house aligners provide superior comfort and remarkable results.
Your clear aligner journey starts by capturing photos and X-rays to create a precise 3D image of your mouth. Dr. Juan will craft your initial custom aligners with these digital impressions. The path to straighter teeth begins here!
Clear aligners take a modern approach, utilizing a unique series of trays made from smooth, nearly invisible plastic that gently guides your teeth according to Dr. Juan's plan.
No wires or metal brackets are involved—just swap in new aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete. With Invisalign or Seabreeze in-house aligners, your daily life remains uninterrupted, and most people won't even notice you're undergoing treatment.
During the 9-15 months of your treatment, you'll typically use 18-30 sets of aligners. Wearing the trays for about 22 hours daily (which you can easily remove to eat and brush) will gradually transform your smile. You'll witness your smile's progress as you transition through each set.
Comparing clear aligners & braces
Clear aligners are crafted from smooth plastic, free from any metal parts that might cause discomfort. Enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about restrictions, even popcorn and peanuts.
Keep in mind that you should remove the aligners for eating and drinking anything except water. Consider this commitment before choosing Invisalign or our in-house clear aligners.
Remember to clean your teeth before reinserting the aligners post-meals to prevent staining. Brushing and flossing are notably simpler than braces since there are no brackets or wires to navigate around.
Taking charge of your clear aligner journey
Success with clear aligners necessitates wearing your aligners for a minimum of 22 hours daily. However, you can remove them for special occasions.
Just like with traditional braces, you'll likely require a retainer from Seabreeze Orthodontics after your clear aligner treatment to maintain your newfound alignment and confident smile.
Discover clear aligners for teens
Clear aligners help teens embrace confidence with transparent, clear plastic trays. Instead of hiding their smile behind metal, your teen can proudly showcase their radiant grin every day.
Unlike friends with traditional braces who must avoid gum or specific foods like popcorn and whole apples, clear aligners offer freedom from food restrictions.
Since the aligners are completely removable, your teen can enjoy all their favorite foods on their own terms.
Proper oral hygiene is a breeze with clear aligners—no special techniques are required, unlike braces. This freedom is a welcome change compared to dealing with wires and brackets!
If your child is active in sports or plays a musical instrument at a Myrtle Beach school or nearby, the thought of metal braces might be a concern. Fearing a ball hitting their mouth or worrying about lip cuts while playing an instrument isn't ideal.
Clear aligners empower your teen to focus on what they excel at – being themselves.
Designed for your busy lifestyle
Clear aligners are a true blessing for busy lives. You'll never encounter emergency appointments for broken wires or brackets—because there aren't any!
You'll typically have fewer visits to Seabreeze Orthodontics than traditional metal braces. With aligners provided in advance, each visit is more efficient.
Dr. Juan typically sees clear aligner patients once every eight weeks, with a total treatment duration averaging 9 to 15 months.
Costs comparable to traditional braces
Your smile journey is unique, and various factors influence the costs of clear aligner treatment. In most scenarios, the cost is comparable to traditional braces, and often covered by most dental insurance plans.
At Seabreeze Orthodontics, we also offer financing options to make clear aligners an affordable choice for your family.
Great for active families
Clear aligners deliver the same effective teeth straightening as metal braces. They're the perfect choice if you're involved in sports, play specific instruments, enjoy crunchy foods, or are simply concerned about your appearance at social events and in photos.
Efficient orthodontic treatment can treat crowding, spacing, and bite issues. You can maintain confidence and love your smile through the advanced technology of clear aligners.
