Discreet Teeth Straightening with Clear Aligners in Kingston, PA
Crooked teeth can make it difficult to smile with confidence. They can also make it harder to clean your teeth when you brush and floss. Bacteria and plaque may hide on surfaces trapped behind your teeth and increase your risk of cavities and gum disease. Patients of all ages can improve their oral health with discreet, removable clear aligners. Lawrence Dental Group offers clear aligners for patients in Kingston, PA, and neighboring areas such as Nanticoke and Plains Township.

Clear aligners are custom-fitted to fit over your teeth, applying gentle pressure to your teeth while remaining practically invisible to the naked eye. Your aligners will be switched out every week or two to maintain the pressure on your teeth, slowly nudging your teeth into alignment. You can remove the aligners to eat and clean your teeth. That means you don’t have to give up any of your favorite foods or increase your risk for cavities during your treatment. Lawrence Dental Group will schedule regular checkups every 4-6 weeks to monitor the results and check for any adjustments that need to be made.
Clear aligners can treat crooked teeth and a misaligned bite for a healthier, happier smile. On average, it takes between 12-18 months to get your desired results, but as you move from one aligner to another, your teeth become straighter and easier to clean. Once you are finished with your treatment, the Lawrence Dental Group will fit you for a retainer to maintain your results.
Find out if clear aligners are right for you
Clear aligners may not be suitable for all patients. Severe misalignment and crowding may require conventional orthodontics to treat. Because these aligners are removable, this process will require commitment from the patient, requiring you to leave them in for most of the day to get the desired results.
The Lawrence Dental Group will also need to treat any tooth decay or gum disease first. Untreated health problems in the mouth can cause your teeth to shift or become loose, and they eventually lead to root infections and tooth loss.
