What Are Tru-Smile Clear Aligners?

Straight, well-aligned teeth not only offer a beautiful, confident smile, but they also are typically in better health and easier to keep clean. Oral health challenges (such as overcrowded teeth or an uneven bite) can also create long-term health issues that might have consequences for your ability to speak and eat normally, and they could be costly to fix. In order to help patients experience the rewards of a healthy, beautiful smile, our dental center proudly offers Tru-Smile clear aligners to adults and teens in Trafalgar, IN. The Tru-Smile treatment process works by way of a sequence of clear, removable aligner trays that are made out of Zendura, a biocompatible thermoplastic. These durable aligners offer a less noticeable appearance and a comfortable option over traditional metal braces. Explore whether Tru-Smile clear aligners are a great choice for your smile goals by scheduling an appointment with one of our doctors of dental surgery, Drs. Jon Hendrickson and Samantha Rahrig at Dental Beauty Wellness Center today.

What Can I Expect from Tru-Smile?

Tru-Smile clear aligners progressively guide your teeth into their proper position by utilizing sets of clear aligners. To start your orthodontic care, our Trafalgar, IN staff will take an impression of your mouth, which will be sent to a dedicated lab where your Tru-Smile clear aligners will be made. Once the aligner trays arrive at our practice, we will have you come back in to pick up your initial set and review instructions on how to wear them. These aligners should be worn over your teeth for at least 20 – 22 hours every day and only taken out before brushing your teeth, flossing, eating foods, or drinking liquids. As your teeth shift, we will swap your current set of aligner trays for the next in succession. As you get adjusted to each set of aligners, you may experience a little bit of soreness, but this is normal and should not last long. Your Tru-Smile treatment plan will vary according to your individual goals and needs; however, a number of patients tend to use their clear, removable teeth aligners for approximately six months. After we've determined we've met your treatment goals, we will likely fit you with a retainer to help you maintain your new and beautiful smile.

Tru-Smile Aligners FAQ

What can Tru-Smile aligners fix?

Tru-Smile Aligners can fix a number of different types of teeth misalignments, including:

  • Misaligned teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Open bite
  • Crossbite

How exactly do Tru-Smile clear aligners work?

Tru-Smile Aligners use a progressive series of trays to straighten your teeth. Over your treatment period (about six months), you go through a series of different clear trays that will slowly move your teeth into their new position. Each tray is slightly different from the last until you wind up with a straighter smile.

How long do Tru-Smile aligners take to straighten your teeth?

Each patient will have unique needs to improve their bite, but in general, most patients will wear their aligners for 20 — 22 hours a day for about six months.

Do Tru-Smile aligners hurt?

No, wearing a Tru-Smile aligner tray doesn't hurt. Your teeth may experience some soreness as they begin to move, but it is minimal and part of the normal straightening process for any type of corrective orthodontic procedure.
