Getting Started with BOA
The process begins with your initial consultation. This helps us determine if BOA is right for you. We will devise a treatment plan and make impressions of your teeth. In a few days your custom made aligners are ready for you to wear. Each set of aligners is worn for about four weeks and then replaced by the next set in the series. This continues until optimum tooth position is attained and your new smile emerges. It's that simple!
The BOA system is different in that its aligners are not prefabricated, but rather are created in our office based on each patient's individual clinical progress.
BOA eliminates the need for traditional metal brackets and wires, as well as bulky retainers of the past. In addition to meeting the esthetic demands of today's patients, BOA provides exceptional prospects for long-term clinical success because it is biologically-based. This differs from other techniques in that BOA does not use a series of aligners based on virtual predictions. Dr. Bradley explains: "If each aligner in the series does not precisely track a patient's progress, each subsequent aligner will gradually be further off in its ability to properly align the teeth".
Treatment typically takes between six months and a year - about the same amount of time as conventional braces. With BOA® you'll spend less time in our office and more time smiling.
