Here at Lattouf Dental, we offer custom made clear retainers to correct alignment issues and straighten your teeth with removable and virtually invisible braces. Over a period of time, wearing these retainers will gradually shift your teeth into a predetermined desired position.
The treatment involves the patient simply wearing a new set of retainers every two weeks until treatment is complete. The aligners are to be worn for at least 22 hours of the day only taking them out to eat, drink or clean your teeth.
Clear aligners consists of a series of 5 to 30 custom-made, mouth guard-like clear plastic aligners. The aligners are removable and are replaced every 2 weeks.

- CONS:Will struggle to completely correct moderate to severe dental crowding problems; only available for adults and teens, not children; more expensive option; can be easily lost and costly to replace; treatment may potentially take longer, teeth stripping possible.
