1. See Us for a Free Consultation
- At your first free consultation, Dr. Chaudhry will sit down with you and assess the current state of your teeth and listen to the results you want.
- We’ll also discuss your financial needs to make sure your treatment fits your budget.
- When Dr. Chaudhry decides that clear aligner treatment is the best solution to help you reach the smile you want, we’ll sit down with you to discuss the financial options and treatment plans that best fit your situation.
2. Get a Plan
- Our Crystal Clear Orthodontics team will take digital images and X-rays of your teeth and use these to create your treatment plan.
- Using a computerized program, we’ll design a personalized series of clear, comfortable, removable aligners that will shift your teeth in stages toward a beautifully straight smile.
- Dr. Chaudhry precisely designs each set of clear aligner trays to adjust your teeth to a predetermined location. You can even see a digital projection of your final results before you start treatment.
3. Wear Your See-Through Braces
- After receiving your clear aligners, you should wear them as much as possible, but you can easily remove them for eating, flossing and brushing.
- You’ll come into Crystal Clear Orthodontics for checkups about every four to six weeks to get your new sets of aligners, and so Dr. Chaudhry can check the progress of your teeth.
- These checkups are generally quick and painless because you won’t have any wires to check or tighten.
Move At the Speed of You
Spark & Invisalign clear aligners take a modern approach to straightening teeth. They use custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligners are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth.
Wearing the aligners will gently move your teeth into place little by little, based on the exact movements Dr. Chaudhry plans for you.
There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners about every two weeks until your treatment is complete.
At Crystal Clear Orthodontics, you can reach a great smile without a treatment that gets in the way of your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know that you’re straightening your teeth.
This nearly-invisible option that straightens your teeth truly changed the way people see orthodontic treatment in Wilmington.
Clear aligners have vastly improved over the years and can be used to handle various of simple and complex cases. Dr. Chaudhry can help you reach your ideal smile using Crystal Clear Orthodontics clear aligners, from crowding to spacing, underbite to overbite.
Dr. Chaudhry has a lot of experience treating people with clear aligners, and we’re excited to offer this technology to our Wilmington braces patients.
Fun for Teens
At Crystal Clear Orthodontics, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their journey toward straighter teeth, and Spark or Invisalign clear aligners help Dr. Aesha Chaudhry do that.
Whether you’re a musician, an athlete, a thespian, class president, or anything else, you’ll be able to participate in all your activities without the barrier that traditional braces might present.
And, since clear aligners are made of clear, BPA-free plastic and look almost invisible, your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them.
Dr. Chaudhry thinks that teens around Wilmington should participate in the activities they want while still feeling confident enough to attend social events to create lasting memories. You should also be able to get efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.
Clear aligners help you focus on doing what you do best—being yourself. At your first free consultation with Dr. Chaudhry, you’ll discover how clear aligners can be a good fit for your smile and lifestyle!
Clear Aligners for Kids
Kids all around Wilmington can get the same results with comfortable clear aligners at Crystal Clear Orthodontics.
Dr. Aesha Chaudhry can use Spark or Invisalign clear aligners to create predictable results and positive experiences for your child while addressing their unique needs.
Using Clear Aligners in Phase 1 Treatment
Whether you live around Wilmington or anywhere else—as your child grows up, their smile grows with them. And even with baby teeth, it may be the perfect time for children ages 6 to 10 years old to start orthodontic treatment at Crystal Clear Orthodontics.
This is known as Phase 1 treatment. At this stage, orthodontists like Dr. Chaudhry can see issues that may need early treatment to address a developing problem. Clear aligners at Crystal Clear Orthodontics can help treat:
- Aesthetic alignment
- A bad bite
- Arch development
- Preserving space for unerupted permanent teeth
Benefits of Clear Aligners for Kids
A Simple Start
Clear aligner treatment starts the same way as for adults—with a simple digital scan (no goopy impressions).
From there, Dr. Chaudhry plots every step of your child’s treatment plan digitally so you know what to expect.
A Happier Experience
With removable aligners, there’s not much interruption to your child’s life. They can even continue to eat foods that they love.
Plus, the aligners are specifically designed to fit smaller teeth and include space to accommodate teeth that are growing in.
Made for All Sorts of Smiles
Clear aligners can fix a wide range of issues, including crowding, spacing, and narrow dental arches.
Keep Your Hygiene Routine
Growing children can continue to brush and floss without the hassle and keep their good hygiene habits on track.
Differences Between Braces & Clear Aligners
There's a lot to consider when it comes to clear aligner treatment. Most clear aligners patients at Crystal Clear Orthodontics enjoy shorter check-ups, fewer appointments, simpler oral hygiene, and fewer emergency visits.
However, the system's biggest pro can also be a downside: the aligners are removable. You must wear your clear aligners as Dr. Chaudhry prescribes and follow our other directions, whether you wear traditional braces or clear aligners.
Since braces are attached to your teeth, they do the heavy lifting to keep your treatment progressing. With clear aligners, you need to do a little extra work during your treatment so your trays can complete your treatment.
You’ll need to manage your wear time, keep your aligners clean, and swap them out for the next aligner in the series. You must be sure you can do this before committing to clear aligner treatment.
Like with traditional metal braces, Dr. Aesha Chaudhry recommends wearing a retainer after your clear aligner treatment to maintain your new alignment and your confident new smile.
