Clear aligners are custom-made transparent plastic trays that gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. Clear aligners are a removable alternative to traditional metal braces. These aligners are virtually invisible when worn, unlike the bulky metal brackets and wires of conventional braces. You’ll take your aligner out to eat, drink, brush, and floss and then replace it to continue straightening your smile over time.
The length of treatment with clear aligners varies from patient to patient, depending on the severity of their condition.
Clear aligners work by gently moving your teeth into the desired position, and because they are removable, you can take them out to eat and clean your teeth. This is different than traditional braces that use wires or brackets to put pressure on the teeth to move them into place. With clear aligners, there are no adjustments needed as they are custom-made for your mouth’s exact measurements. Your aligners are changed out approximately every two weeks until the process is complete.
Clear aligner therapy is a great option for both adults and teens who have moderate misalignment or gaps between their teeth. Patients that want to straighten their smile but do not want to undergo orthodontic treatment due to cost, lifestyle, or other personal reasons will find Cleat aligners to be a practical solution.
Please note that patients should wear their clear aligners for at least 22 hours per day to experience the best results from their treatment.
At-home care is also an important part of your treatment and will help ensure your teeth and aligners remain clean and prevent bacterial build-up that can lead to gum disease. Patients should follow these tips to get the most out of their treatment and achieve a beautiful new smile!
