SFC Aligner System

SFC stands for “Straight – Fast – Clear” and it is a new exciting option offered at Robison Orthodontics.  This aligner system is planned, designed, and manufactured completely in-house and is an economical alternative for Spark or Invisalign for mild to moderate orthodontic problems.  Spark is still the option of choice for more complex cases, but SFC can manage more than you might think. Call or text today to see if you qualify for SFC!

Clear aligners are an effective alternative to traditional braces, because they use a series of clear, removable trays to straighten teeth. Each aligner is custom-made to fit over your teeth and is designed to gradually move teeth into their proper position. Using clear aligners for orthodontic treatment is not for everyone. The best way to find out if clear aligners are the right option for you is to schedule a consultation with your orthodontist.

How do clear aligners work?

Clear aligners are used as an alternative to traditional braces, and are designed to help guide teeth into proper position. Just like braces, clear aligners use gradual force to control tooth movement, but without any metal wires or brackets. The aligners are made with a strong plastic material that has been fabricated to fit your mouth. As treatment progresses you switch aligners. Each aligner is a little different, so your teeth move a little more with every change.

Aligners are worn for at least 20 to 22 hours each day, and you'll receive enough aligners to last several weeks. You will change to a new aligner every week or two.The length of your treatment depends on the severity of your case. Treatment takes anywhere from three to twelve months.

Advantages of orthodontic treatment with clear aligners:

Clear aligners are a great alternative for patients who want a straighter smile but do not want to wear metal braces, or for patients who have had treatment in the past and want to make minor corrections to their smile. There are several advantages to orthodontic treatment with clear aligners.

  • Clear aligners are easier to keep clean, making it easier to maintain the health of your teeth and gums.
  • Clear aligners are comfortable and less likely to irritate your gums and cheeks.
  • Clear aligners prevent wear on the teeth from tooth grinding.
  • Clear aligners are removable, so it's easier for you to brush and floss after meals.

If you're interested in orthodontic treatment with clear aligners, schedule an appointment and talk to Dr. Robison about whether this is the right treatment option for you. Scheduling a consultation is your first step toward achieving the beautiful smile you've always wanted.
