How Do Clear Aligners Work?

As an alternative to traditional braces, clear aligners are used to assist move teeth into the right positions. Similar to braces, clear aligners manage tooth movement with progressive force but without the use of metal wires or brackets. The sturdy plastic used to make the aligners has been molded to fit your mouth. You change aligners as your treatment progresses. Your teeth move a little bit more with each adjustment since each aligner is somewhat different.

You must wear aligners for at least 20 hours per day, and you get a new set every two weeks. Your treatment could last anywhere from six months to two years, depending on how severe your condition is.

Advantages Of Orthodontic Treatment With Clear Aligners:

For patients who want a straighter smile but do not want to wear metal braces or for people who have had treatment in the past but only want to make modest changes to their smile, clear aligners are a fantastic alternative. Clear aligner orthodontic treatment has a number of benefits.

  • Because clear aligners are simpler to keep clean, it’s simpler to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
  • Your gums and cheeks are less likely to itch or become uncomfortable with clear aligners.
  • Clear aligners stop tooth grinding from wearing down the teeth.
  • Because clear aligners are removeable, you can clean and floss your teeth more easily after meals.

Make an appointment and consult with your orthodontist if you’re considering clear aligner orthodontic treatment to determine if this is the best course of action for you. Your first step to getting the gorgeous smile you’ve always wanted is to schedule a consultation.
