What is Allesee Orthodontic Appliance?

Allesee Orthodontic Appliance is the advanced way to straighten teeth and improve smiles. Using the latest medical imaging technologies, AOA manufacturers precision polymer aligners that rapidly straighten teeth. Using a precise 3 dimensional analysis of your teeth and adjacent tissue, AOA crafts personalized aligners for each patient. Each aligner is worn for 3 weeks, and can be removed to eat, brush, floss, and on special occasions. During wear, the patient’s teeth are gently moved to their ideal position.

The length of the process depends on the patient’s specific situation and the results the patient wants to achieve. AOA aligners are:

Clear · most people won’t even know you’re wearing them

Comfortable · AOA aligners have a smooth surface that is gentle in your mouth

Removable · take them out to eat or brush, then put them back in again

Hygienic · smooth surfaces stay cleaner than other plastic aligners

Affordable · in most cases, the cost is comparable to metal braces

Fast · treatment time is comparable and in many cases less than that of traditional braces

Convenient · whether you’re a singer, musician, or just going on a first date, you’ll love AOA aligners

AOA Can Work For You

People aren’t born with perfect teeth. For many patients, AOA creates that beautiful smile. Here are some of the common orthodontic conditions that AOA treats:

Crowding – teeth are too close together

Spacing – gaps between teeth

Overbite/Overjet – front teeth stick out

Underbite – lower teeth stick out

Crossbite – upper and lower teeth are out of alignment

Openbite – space appears between surfaces of upper and lower teeth during bite

Misplaced midline – center lines of upper and lower teeth don’t align

AOA is the ideal solution in many such cases. And while AOA works for most orthodontic problems, only a trained AOA orthodontist or dentist can tell you if this revolutionary product will work for you.

AOA outperforms other aligners
