The Top 3 Reasons to Consider Our Trays Vs. D.I.Y. Mail-Order Trays
#1...Taking Your Own Impressions is Hard
Unlike the exact representation of your teeth from our 3D Digital Scan, Orthodontic Trays made from at-home impressions have a “fudge-factor” built in. This leads to inaccuracy from materials and mistakes from self-care.
D.I.Y. manufacturer either fabricate trays or have you retake the impressions a second time, leading to longer treatment times.
#2...With D.I.Y. Trays, Sometimes the First Aligner Set Fits, and the Rest Don’t
The remaining trays that are calculated at the same time are based on your initial attempt at impressing your own teeth. Extrapolating on the errors you made, 2-3 trays may work and then future trays may not. This leads to a disheartened feeling that it is clear orthodontic trays that don’t do the job, when in reality it is user-error.
Your roots stabilize your teeth in your jaw bone. Without consulting all the proper x-rays and photographs a professional would take, along with a proper exam of your gums, D.I.Y. Trays can leave you at increased risk for mobile (wiggly) teeth.
A straight but wiggly smile is NOT what YOU are after!
How Can I Get the D.I.Y. Trays So Much Cheaper?
Mail-Order Aligners Seem Cheaper Because They For These Reasons:
- Not Enough Aligners: Plastic aligners off the internet most likely give you 10 to 12 sets of aligners. These may or may not move all or none of your teeth.
- Professional Guidance: The Human Interaction with a professional who knows about the 6 teeth movements or who can take x-rays to make sure you are not getting root resorption takes time and money. But it is worth it!
- Retainer: Retainers are typically made out of a different material than the trays that move your teeth. Not included with Mail-Order Trays.
- Post Orthodontic Issues: TMJ, and an un-level bite leads to seeking professional care anyway later down the road in some cases.

What is Virtual Progress Tracking For Orthodontics?
How Do I Know When to Change My Trays?
We highly recommend using TrayMinder.
This app reminds you when to change trays (if you are tracking properly) or you can contact our office at any time.
Ask a team member to help you get started if you need help after seeing the tutorial below!
What are Attachments?
What is IPR (Interproximal Reduction)?
If you have crowded teeth or recession, sometimes IPR, or tooth slenderizing, is recommended. By adjusting the surfaces in between your teeth, we are able to move all of your teeth into alignment and help prevent recession when teeth are pushed too far forward, exposing your roots.
What Can I Eat With Clear Orthodontic Trays?
The Top 3 Things to Consider While Eating With Clear Orthodontic Trays Are:
1. Foods that Stain – Red wine and coffee can cause stained trays.
2. Things that Cause Cavities – Clear Trays cause an anaerobic environment under them, allowing that type of bacteria to thrive if you do not brush and floss and brush your trays.
3. Things that Break Trays – Clear Tray Orthodontic System (Orthodontic Aligners) are susceptible to breakage, depending on the food your chew. Therefore we recommend their removal while eating.
What Do I Use to Clean My Trays?
This is a great question!
We recommend the Invisalign Crystals sold on Amazon.com as the gold standard. We include a whitening foam that cleans your trays to get you started on your journey.
What are Elastics for Retainers?
If you have Comprehensive Orthodontics done with Clear Trays at our office and have an Overbite or Underbite, we may use elastics clipped onto buttons to help correct that simultaneously with straightening your teeth!
LIFE AFTER ALIGNERS
Don't Forget To Wear Retainers Every Night
We Offer a “Retainers for Life” Program due to the fact the average person goes through 7 sets of retainers in their life if they are constantly wearing them.
While your aligners are worn for 10-14 days, Retainers are close to the same material and are expected by the average patient to last years. This is NOT always the case.
White Spot Lesions/Decalcifications
Why Would I Get Clear Orthodontic Trays Vs. Traditional Braces?
The Top 3 Reasons to Consider Getting Clear Orthodontic Trays Vs. Metal/Clear Brackets Are:
1. No brackets and wires means easier to clean teeth for our adults/ responsible teens – Because the aligners can be temporarily removed, they also make daily tasks like eating and brushing and flossing your teeth simpler and more convenient than they would be with traditional braces.
2. More self-confidence without the feeling of having “metal mouth” – additional self-confidence for photos, special events or speaking with co-workers means a better outcome and likelihood of taking care of your finished smile down the road.
3. A full spectrum of treatment – Whether it is one tooth or a smile makeover, Our In-House Clear Tray Orthodontic System (Orthodontic Aligners) come in a series, with each aligner designed to guide teeth through several degrees of movement. Each new aligner continues the path of movement until all of your teeth are properly aligned.
CLEAR ORTHODONTIC TRAYS F.A.Q.'s
Fees for Orthodontic Care Depend on the severity of the case, total treatment time, objectives of the treatment, and the age of the patient involved.
If you are a cash patient, we are currently offering $1000 off to get started, regardless of the treatment.
If you have dental insurance and are 19 or under, chances are we are contracted at your insurance's fee schedule rate.
23 hours a day. Only take them out to clean them and brush/floss your teeth.
We typically place a permanent lower retainer from canine to canine and make final orthodontic trays that you should wear every night for the rest of your life.
Clear Orthodontic Trays have a difficult time moving dental bridges or crowns. They can not move Dental Implants. If you have a space, we keep it and attempt to upright natural teeth so a future bridge or dental implant can be placed. We have software that allows Dr. Rouse to do all of that at the same time, if finances allow.
Crooked, misaligned teeth (a condition known as malocclusion) can affect patients of all ages.
Though the condition is usually detected and addressed in childhood, adults can develop crooked teeth even if they’ve never had malocclusion before.
The difference is that adults are often more hesitant to correct their tooth alignment because they fear how wearing metal braces will affect their lives.
Fortunately, many patients can straighten their teeth without that worry thanks to the advent of our In-House Clear Orthodontic Trays known as BOSS Clear Aligners.
