Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities. The field of orthodontics has its roots in ancient times when the idea was first proposed that you could move teeth to improve appearance. In the centuries that followed, this notion was refined by numerous practitioners, and those practitioners developed orthodontic devices such as braces and headgear to correct a wide range of dental and facial irregularities.
Today, orthodontists use state-of-the-art technologies to create customized treatment plans for each patient. By working closely with dentists, oral surgeons, and other specialists, they can provide comprehensive care that gives patients a lifetime of smiles.
Introducing Smile Shapers at Horizon Dental
Horizon Dental offers one of the most popular orthodontic treatment options in recent years: clear aligners. Clear aligners are a type of orthodontic appliance that are virtually invisible when worn, making them a popular choice for adults and teens who are self-conscious about their appearance. We recommend Smile Shapers clear aligners to correct a wide range of alignment issues, including crowding, spacing, and bite problems.
The aligners are made from a lightweight, medical-grade plastic that is custom-fitted to each patient’s mouth. They gradually move the teeth into the desired position over the course of several months.

How Long Does Treatment Take With Smile Shapers?
The length of treatment with clear aligners can vary depending on the misalignment’s severity, the patient’s age, and other factors. In general, however, patients can expect to wear clear aligners for at least six months. Some patients may need to wear them for a year or more, while others may only need to wear them for a few months.
To be a good candidate for clear aligners, you should have healthy teeth and gums, and your orthodontic problem should be able to be corrected with clear aligners alone. You may need to consider other treatment options if you have more severe orthodontic issues. However, if you want a discreet way to achieve a straighter smile, clear aligners may be the right choice.
The best way to determine how long you will need treatment and if you are a good candidate for clear aligners is to schedule an appointment. We will be able to assess your individual case and give you lots of helpful information.
