Clear Aligner Therapy in Whitby
Crooked teeth, misaligned bite, and other issues can cause your child discomfort and can often lead to complications with their dental health. To correct tooth and jaw position abnormalities we use orthodontic appliances, including clear aligners.
What are clear aligners?
Clear aligners are rigid plastic devices that fit over your child’s teeth and reposition them. The aligners work like braces to gently guide and hold your child’s teeth in the proper positions. Unlike braces, your child can remove the aligners when they eat or brush their teeth.
If your child loses one or more of their baby teeth too early, their existing teeth can drift into the resulting space. We often recommend a space maintainer to hold the natural teeth in place to prevent them from drifting.
