About Teeth Aligners
Many people did not require or weren't able to have braces in their youth, but they now have some spacing or crowding problems that do not allow them to have a straight, gorgeous smile. Clear teeth straightening trays are tight fitting covers for the teeth created with see through acrylic, and sometimes plastic material that delicately shifts teeth into a straighter look. Using various sets of aligners over a specified course of time, clear teeth aligners are able to transform moderately crowded teeth and spacing issues for straighter, healthier teeth. Clear aligners are generally preferred by adults over traditional orthodontics since they are unnoticeable and can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Our dentists at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics in Pearland, TX discuss teeth straightening alternatives, including clear teeth aligners during regular appointments.

"I was terrified of dentists until I became a patient of Dr Devlin. I "was" instilled with a fear of dentists since childhood in Australia (snakes, spiders and dentists are MEAN over there), maturing to adulthood I figured that ignorance was bliss and that if no teeth were black and/or falling out then I didn't need to see a dentist. Now, in my 30's, my wisdom teeth erupted and I was having issues so HAD to see a dentist, I eventually conceded that it was time to face my fear so I went to see the lucky Dr Devlin. (Who my husband had already been seeing) I brought my husband in room for moral support, Dr Devlin and his tech thought that was amusing, my husband was embarrassed but I was "happy wife". I needed my wisdom teeth removed and had more than a dozen cavities. (Oops!) For those if you afraid of needles, I've never felt a single needle stick for local anaesthetics administered by Dr Devlin. He is understanding of my irrational fear and of my medical issues and I always leave with a smile. Dr Devlin and his team are fantastic, they're flexible, cheerful, and I love their customer service. I have always been greeted by my first name as when I walk in the door, Dr Devlin asks about hubby and my fur babies at every visit (I've now had a visit or two, ya know, teeth with more holes than Swiss cheese) My irrational fear gives me some insane facial expressions and poorly timed nervous talking sessions during dental work which is less than ideal but have caused moments of uncontrollable laughter for everyone else in the room. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would."- L.S. / Yelp / Sep 28, 2018
"NEW UPDATE!!9/26/18I had my teeth cleaned by the most knowledgeable dental hygienist ever. She was able to answer my questions while performing the most thorough cleaning possible. If you have not tried this dental office, and are looking for a great place to call your dental home, it will be impossible to find better. 9/11/17Today was my second visit to Highland, and again the experience was absolutely perfect. In fact, soboerfect, that I am going back tomorrow to get some fillings repaired and replaced. If you are looking for a new dentist, I have no problem at all recommending Highland. ORIGINAL POSTAfter spending over 20 years with an amazing dentist here in Pearland, my insurance forced me to look for a new dental home. Honestly, I was more than nervous, I was worried and extremely hesitant to make an appointment with my selected new dentist. Finally, I made an appointment and forced myself to go. When I arrived, I almost rescheduled and left for the day. I stayed, and I could not be happier. First, the young lady at the front desk went out of her way to help get my insurance information set up, and just shoot the breeze to help me relax. After no wait at all, I was welcomed by the young lady who was ready to do exrays and clean my teeth. She could not have been any kinder, or more thorough, throughout my entire exam. She actually did techniques I have never had done in 20 years, including photographing each tooth. Once the Dr came in, he was as personable as any Dr I have ever been around. He also was extremely thorough, and explained everything he was seeing, in great detail. In closing, I can only say, my day at Highland Dental could not have gone any better."- J.H. / Google / Sep 27, 2018
"We've been going to Highland Dental for about 10 years now. We can't say enough about how fantastic they've been to us. Dr. Devlin and crew are truly amazing."- J.F. / Google / Sep 22, 2018
What to Expect
Each tray of clear aligners are uniquely fitted depending on the individual's present teeth alignment. Each tray of aligners are made based on impressions, X-rays, and images. The patient will be given 3 - 4 sets of trays at their appointment and our dentists will ensure that the initial set fits as they should so that modifications can be made. Our clients need to wear their aligners as much as possible. The trays should be removed for brushing and flossing, as well as eating. Within a few weeks, a new set of trays will be provided during a quick appointment at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics.
The number of weeks that an individual has to wear each phase of aligners will vary based on the unique needs of each person. The estimated timeframe needed is generally discussed by our dentists at the consultation. the aligners will be worn daily until the teeth are straight. Assessments at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics will be given at each appointment so that the straightening can be assessed. Our dentists will assist patients so they have a full understanding of the ongoing progress. After the teeth are straight, a permanent retainer device will be set on the teeth for permanent results.
Depending on the patient's dental insurance, some of the orthodontic aligners may be paid for. Our dental office at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics will communicate with the patient's insurance contact to confirm their benefits and provide an accurate cost of the patient's expected fees.
