Can Clear Aligners Fix My Misaligned Teeth?

October 04, 2022

Did you never have the chance of getting braces when you were younger and have lived with crooked teeth your whole life? Or, did you have braces as a teenager but, as you have gotten older, your teeth have moved back out of their proper, pretty place?

These two scenarios are common for adults and if this sounds like you, that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to live the next 30-50 years of your life with gaps, crowded teeth, or an incorrect bite.

Not only do these problems pose cosmetic concerns, but they can cause jaw pain (temporomandibular joints) and eventually lead to other, more serious health issues such as periodontal disease (which has been linked to a difficulty in controlling blood sugar, an increased chance of having a preterm or low birth-weight baby, and higher incidence of developing heart disease).

If you have an oral issue and are ready to have it corrected, or if you just want a smile you can be proud to show off, NewSmile™ Aligners are an exceptional alternative to braces as it may be the most convenient, cost-effective, least noticeable way to fix your teeth and get the results you want.

Common Teeth Problems that NewSmile™ Can Fix

For many of the most common teeth problems, NewSmile™ teeth aligners are an effective answer that is clinically proven to be a great alternative to braces. From mild to complex issues, the innovative treatment can give a very positive outcome.

Gapped teeth occur when there is continued the abnormal growth of the jawbone or when there is extra space due to missing teeth, which causes other teeth to shift out of place. Spacing issues and tooth gaps leave the gums exposed and prone to problems such as periodontal pockets caused by a buildup of plaque. These pockets put you at an increased risk of developing periodontal disease. Also, gapped teeth can make it difficult to chew well and can be the culprit of bad breath.

NewSmile™ teeth aligners can fix the gaps between your teeth, resulting in less-exposed gums and a decreased risk of developing periodontal disease.

Overly crowded teeth occur when there isn’t enough space in your jaw for all of your teeth to fit comfortably. When teeth overlap, plaque has more nooks and crannies to accumulate in which speeds up tooth decay and increases the chance of getting gum disease. Over time, teeth tend to move and get more crowded, resulting in severely crooked teeth.

NewSmile™ teeth aligners can un-crowd the mouth by slowly and gently pushing the teeth outward and allowing them to reset in a more appropriate place in the jaw.

Overbite occurs when the upper teeth reach out over the bottom teeth while the mouth is closed. An overbite can be mild or severe and is usually a genetic issue where a child’s jaw grows unevenly so the upper jaw ends up being larger than the lower jaw. However, bad oral habits can cause an overbite or make a mild one worse. Thumb sucking, prolonged pacifier and bottle use, tongue thrusting, and nail-biting can be to blame.

An overbite can lead to gum irritation, extra wear on the teeth, and painful jaw problems. In addition, it affects the appearance of the face.

Underbite occurs when the lower teeth reach out over the front of the top teeth. It is usually caused by underdevelopment of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both. This malformation can prevent the normal working function of the front teeth or molars which leads to uneven tooth wear and painful jaw problems.

Crossbite is when both the upper and lower jaws are misaligned and one or more teeth bite on the inside of the front or side teeth. This issue can cause overwear of the teeth, gum disease, and bone loss.

Openbite occurs when some teeth are unable to make contact with the opposing teeth. It is most often caused by a genetic abnormal jaw structure or excessive thumb sucking. An open bite can cause poor or painful chewing, a speech impairment, or TMJ joint disorder.   

NewSmile™ teeth aligners can lessen the visual aspect of an overbite, underbite, crossbite, or open bite issue by shifting your teeth. This method works especially well with the variety of different teeth aligners you receive throughout the treatment.

The Options for Fixing Your Teeth Problems

Depending on your teeth problems, there are a variety of options for dealing with them. The first one is to simply do nothing. If you have zero to very mild jaw pain, are able to take extra time and care to maintain excellent oral hygiene, and are not concerned about the straightness of your smile, then you don’t need to worry too much about fixing your teeth. However, for many adults, this isn’t an option, whether it’s for physical or cosmetic concerns.

If you are experiencing discomfort, excessive plaque and tartar buildup, periodontal pockets, the beginning signs of gum disease, bad breath, or are overly self-consciousness, these are your options:

  • Braces: This traditional method does an excellent job for teeth that need significant moving, although they tend to be quite expensive, hard to clean, and cause a good deal of discomfort.
  • Veneers: These thin pieces of porcelain are bonded to the tooth’s enamel. They give a natural look and are less intrusive than braces for small gaps and misalignments and can also be a cosmetic solution to correct discoloration or chipped teeth. Unfortunately, this option can stain easily and is extremely expensive at around $800-$2000 per tooth.
  • Teeth aligners: This alternative to braces is cost-effective, virtually invisible, removable, and requires little or no time in the orthodontist’s chair. You could go to your dentist/orthodontist and get aligners. In most cases, they'll require you to come back every two weeks so that they can charge you for a "checkup" and provide your next aligner. How NewSmile™ is different is that you don't have to deal with the expensive and inconvenient office visits. Teeth aligners are quickly becoming the go-to option for those with mild to moderate teeth problems, for good reason.

How Teeth Aligners Work

The treatment process with teeth aligners is straightforward and works well. It all starts with answering a few key questions to determine your chances of having a successful outcome, such as:

  1. Are you 15 or older?
  2. Have you worn braces in the past?
  3. What type of spacing issue do you have?
  4. How much teeth movement do you want?

Next, you order an impression kit so you can make molds of your teeth...right at home! These impressions are a crucial part of the process but are not as tricky as you might think. Just follow the step-by-step instruction guide as you make four separate impressions. Customer support is available if you need extra coaching. When you’re finished, mail the molds back using a prepaid shipping label.

Your molds will be evaluated by a trained doctor who will ensure you’re a good candidate for NewSmile™ aligners to fix your teeth. If you are, your molds are scanned and you will be sent your teeth’s “after” preview. If you approve, your doctor will map out a precise treatment schedule, including the exact movement of your teeth and how long your treatment is expected to take.

Your custom teeth aligners (15 of them on average) will be made of special, durable, virtually invisible material and mailed directly to you. If your aligners aren’t a good fit for you, you’ll be refunded their full cost.

Lastly, you’ll wear an aligner for 20-22 hours a day (taking them out to eat, brush, and floss) and approximately two weeks each. Total wear time depends on your unique situation.

You’ll then finally have the smile you’ve always wanted for yourself!
