Clear Aligners | Carmel

Invisible Treatment, Noticeable Progress

Clear aligners at Emerick Orthodontics are the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and get the smile you’ve always wanted.

The Clear Smile Option

From crowding to spacing, underbite to overbite, Dr. Emerick can use clear aligners to help you get a straighter, healthier smile.

Clear aligners use a series of trays made of acrylic or clear plastic material that are custom-fitted to gradually and comfortably move your smile into perfect alignment.

At Emerick Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign, Angel Aligners, and our own in-house clear aligners for a fully digital process that doesn’t require goopy impressions — just a comfortable, precise, fully customized smile journey.

What Issues Can Clear Aligners Treat?

Overbite

An overbite results from your upper teeth erupting too far forward and pushing your lower teeth backward. Dr. Emerick recommends clear aligners to prevent tooth decay and gum disease from the resulting misaligned bite.

Underbite

An underbite occurs when your lower teeth erupt past your upper teeth. This can give the impression that your upper teeth are being pushed in and can prevent you from biting and chewing food properly.

Crossbite

Crossbite is when you bite down and your upper and lower teeth are not positioned correctly. This condition can lead to excessive stress on your jaw and result in TMJ issues.

Crowded Teeth

When your teeth overlap with each other, it can cause stress and even extreme pain in your jaw. Clear aligners address these spacing issues to improve the overall health and appearance of your jaw.

Benefits of Aligners

1. Invisible Appearance

These clear aligners are made from a transparent material, allowing you to straighten your teeth discreetly.

Unlike traditional braces with noticeable wires and brackets, clear aligners provide a subtle and virtually undetectable solution for your orthodontic treatment.

2. Customized Comfort

Each set of aligners is custom-made to fit your unique dental structure to ensure a comfortable fit and effective treatment.

Using advanced 3D imaging technology, Dr. Emerick creates a series of aligners that gradually shift your teeth into their desired position.

3. Removable Convenience

Unlike traditional braces, the trays are removable — so you don’t have to restrict what you eat, and brushing and flossing are a breeze.

4. Predictable Progress

With a fully digital process, Dr. Emerick can map out a clear path to your new smile even before you get your first set of customized clear aligners.

Using advanced technology, clear aligners at Emerick Orthodontics can also help you track the progress of your smile journey.

How to Wear Your Clear Aligners

Wear Them Regularly

Make sure you follow Dr. Emerick’s instructions and wear your clear aligners regularly for 20 – 22 hours a day to get the best results.

Maintain Oral Hygiene

To avoid plaque accumulation and to maintain a healthy mouth, keep your teeth and clear aligners clean. Before reusing your aligners, brush your teeth after every meal.

Keep Appointments

Make sure you attend all appointments with both Dr. Emerick and your regular dentist.

During your checkups at our Carmel office, we can keep an eye on your orthodontic journey — and by scheduling your twice-annual cleanings with your dentist, you can make sure your mouth stays healthy throughout your smile treatment.

Handle With Care

To prevent damage, handle your clear aligners carefully. Use both hands to remove or insert them, starting with the back teeth and carefully easing them into position.

Your aligners should always be upright when putting or taking them out.
