Why should I choose clear aligner therapy?
With clear aligner therapy, you can get the beautifully straight smile of your dreams without the clunky, uncomfortable metal brackets of traditional braces. Clear aligner therapy utilizes a series of custom-made dental appliances that gradually straighten your smile by applying gentle, consistent pressure to the teeth. The biggest draw of clear aligner therapy is the discreet look, as the aligners are made of clear thermoplastic material that is nearly invisible when worn. If you’re struggling with crowded teeth or gaps, clear aligner therapy may be right for you.
At our dental office, we're committed to providing you with the best orthodontic options, which is why we offer Vivos appliances as a precursor to adult ortho treatment.
Invisalign & Candid
Looking for a subtle way to straighten your smile? We offer Invisalign and Candid clear aligners, both of which use custom-made, virtually invisible trays to gradually shift your teeth into their proper positions.
Early Treatment Options
Our orthodontic treatment approach includes early development ortho treatment, which guides the jaws into proper alignment and minimizes the need for more extensive orthodontic interventions later on.

The Clear Aligner Therapy Treatment Process
During your initial consultation, your dentist in Midwest City will determine if clear aligner therapy is right for you. First, we’ll examine your oral health to check for gaps and crowding, and ensure your gums are healthy enough for treatment. You’ll also go over your smile goals with your doctor and decide on a treatment plan that fits your needs and lifestyle.
Impressions or Digital Imaging
Your dentist will then create a model of your bite with digital imaging technology or traditional molds. Once those are complete, your dentist will make any necessary adjustments before sending them off to our trusted dental lab where they will custom craft your first few sets of aligners.
Fitting & Next Steps
Once we receive your clear aligners, you’ll return to the office, where your dentist will check to ensure they fit just right, and make any needed adjustments. Your dentist will provide you detailed instructions about how to wear your new aligners. Most patients will wear each set for 2 weeks, and between 20-22 hours per day. Every 6 weeks or so, you’ll return to our office to pick up your next several sets of aligners and to ensure your smile is making the proper progress.
