Clear Aligner Therapy
Imagine a braces treatment that doesn't use wires or metal brackets, a treatment that is virtually pain free and doesn't require you to change your current lifestyle. Clear aligner therapy uses a series of clear, comfortable, and removable aligners to straighten your teeth without having to deal with a mouth full of metal! If you are a candidate for clear aligner therapy, Dr. Howell will recommend treatment using one of multiple national brand aligners, or she will prepare a special treatment plan for you with our custom, in-house fabricated "HowAligners."
