Clear Aligners

Prattville & Millbrook, AL’s  Clear Aligner Provider!

Clear Aligners are the “clear” alternative to straighten teeth without the look of traditional braces.

Consider clear aligners to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Petrunic can determine if clear aligners  are right for you!

 Clear aligners uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Clear aligners are made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with clear aligners.

Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Clear aligners also allow you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position.

You’ll visit Petrunic Orthodontics about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

Orthodontics FAQ

At Petrunic Orthodontics we are here to walk you through the entire process. From our free consultation to your desired end results, we make sure the process is as easy and seamless as possible.  We have created some FAQ to help you get started, but we would  also love to sit down with you in person and answer any and all of your questions.    

Is it required that my family dentist schedule my appointment with the orthodontist?

No, it is not. Many of our patients are referred by their family dentist, yet many other patients take the initiative to schedule an examination themselves.

At what age should I schedule an appointment for an orthodontic screening?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an orthodontic screening at age 7. By this age, several permanent teeth in most children have erupted, allowing us to effectively evaluate your orthodontic condition.

Will my teeth straighten out as they grow?

No, they will not. The space available for the front teeth does not increase as you grow. In most people, after the permanent molars erupt, the space available for the front teeth decreases with age.

How do I schedule an appointment for an initial exam?

If you or your child can potentially benefit from orthodontic treatment, simply call our office or send us an e-mail. We will be happy to schedule an appointment for you. When you call to schedule your appointment, our front office staff will request some basic information from you.

Braces Prattville, AL | Orthodontist Prattville, AL | Braces Millbrook, AL | Orthodontist Millbrook, AL

Seeing the joy and confidence on my patients' faces when they achieve the smiles of their dreams is the best part of being an orthodontist. Over the past eight years, I have met such wonderful people, and they've all taught me so much. I think people enjoy being around somebody who truly loves what he or she does, and that excitement becomes infectious. I hope that each and every patient I meet becomes as excited as I am about his or her orthodontic treatment.

I am a native of Prattville, AL, and proud to have been born and raised in such a great community. I live here with my wife, Ashley, and our two children. My free time is spent hunting, fishing, playing golf, or really just doing anything outside. I can also be found on my family’s farm. 

Being a part of the community where I practice is very important to me. I enjoy watching the children I treat grow up and thrive in the community that I call home. I see so many of my patients out around town at dinner, ballgames, church and community functions. I believe that a practicing doctor should know his patients as people and not just as a name on a chart. I want my patients to develop a sense of pride and bond with somebody they see as one of their own.
