Fargo Spark Clear Aligners
Spark clear aligners are incredibly popular with patients and orthodontists in Fargo and are the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth gradually.
Spark clear aligners are made of comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the direction you want them to, you’ll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every one to two weeks, as directed by Dr. Duevel and Dr. Keim.
The Spark clear aligner system can only work if the recommended guidelines are followed precisely! Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment.
If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and add time to the orthodontic process. The system is most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues.
There may be better options for some complex cases than Spark clear aligners. A free consultation with Dr. Duevel and Dr. Keim at Fargo Orthodontics in Fargo will allow us to determine your eligibility for them.
Braces in Fargo are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Since they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments, overall treatment time may be slightly reduced.
Braces don’t require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, meaning Fargo braces are a cost-effective orthodontic option.
Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They’re made of metal or ceramic brackets affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.
These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with our doctors.
