If you have slight imperfections in the alignment of your teeth you should consider dental Bioliners. A Bioliner is a small aligner made of 0.030mm ultra clear plastic and a soft thermal plastic insert along with a suck down retainer. Bioliners are best suited for slightly misaligned teeth and are not sufficient to correct severe misalignment. Make an appointment to see Dr. Hogan at Park West Dental Associates for your Bioliner consultation in Mt. Pleasant, SC. Dr. Hogan proudly serves patients from Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island, Daniel Island, West Ashley and surrounding areas.
Bioliners are most effective to correct minor crowding and relapsed alignments. The dentist must first take an impression of your teeth which is sent to the Bioliners lab for your custom inserts to be fabricated. The thermal plastic insert fits over the affected teeth, gently exerting pressure to move the teeth into the desired alignment. Unlike traditional braces or even Invisalign, Bioliners typically need to be worn for only 4-6 weeks to achieve the desired results. The device can move teeth up to 1.5 mm. Bioliners can correct minor overcrowding, spaces or gaps and crooked or rotated teeth. Bioliner treatment is completed in two stages, the first with a silicone insert and the second with a more rigid insert that completes the movement.
There are many choices on the market today to correct teeth misalignment like gaps and overcrowding. Your dentist will work with you to find the right corrective solution. Bioliners work faster than and are much less expensive than Invisalign clear aligners. If you think Bioliners might work for you, make an appointment today to discuss your options with Dr. Hogan at Park West Dental Associates. Dr. Hogan proudly serves patients throughout Mt. Pleasant, SC, Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island, Daniel Island, West Ashley and surrounding communities.
