Clear Aligners

Clear Aligners

We live in an era where technological advancements have permeated every aspect of our lives, and dentistry is no exception. Traditional braces, once the go-to solution for misaligned teeth, have given way to a more discreet and convenient alternative – clear aligners.

Clear aligners function on the principle of controlled force application to move teeth into their desired positions. The process typically begins with a comprehensive digital scan of the patient's teeth at Williams & Hamman Orthodontics, allowing for the creation of a 3D model. Based on this model, a series of custom-made aligners are generated by our orthodontist in Southaven, MS, each slightly different from the previous one to facilitate gradual tooth movement. This digital approach eliminates the need for messy impressions, provides more accuracy, and ensures a more comfortable experience for the wearer.

What Can Clear Aligners Fix? 

Misalignment of Teeth

We can seamlessly correct mild to moderate misaligned teeth with clear aligners. Whether the issue is overcrowding, spacing, or crooked teeth, these custom-made trays work diligently to guide teeth into their optimal positions. 


Clear aligners are also efficient for correcting crossbites, where the upper and lower teeth do not line up properly. This misalignment can cause uneven wear on teeth and jaw discomfort, but clear aligners work to align the upper and lower teeth for a balanced bite. 

Open Bite

We can use clear aligners to address open bites, characterized by a gap between the upper and lower front teeth when the jaw is completely shut. Clear aligners help close this gap, promoting better alignment and function for an improved bite.

Gaps Between Teeth

We can close gaps between teeth, known as diastemas, using clear aligners. These gaps can be a source of self-consciousness, but with the controlled force applied by clear aligners, the teeth can be brought together for a more cohesive and appealing smile.

The Benefits of Clear Aligners

Aesthetic Appeal

One of the most significant advantages of clear aligners in Olive Branch, MS, is their discreet appearance. Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing patients to straighten their teeth without the self-consciousness often associated with metal braces.


Clear aligners are designed to be removable, allowing patients to eat, drink, brush, and floss without the hindrance posed by fixed braces. This feature enhances oral hygiene and reduces the risk of issues such as decay and gum disease during the treatment period.

Comfort and Convenience

The absence of wires and brackets translates into a more comfortable orthodontic experience. Clear aligners are known for causing minimal irritation to the cheeks and gums, making them a popular choice for those seeking a less intrusive treatment option. 

With their aesthetic appeal, comfort, and convenience, clear aligners have empowered individuals to embark on a journey toward a straighter, more confident smile.
