Most people want beautiful, healthy, straight teeth. With an ‘invisible’ dental aligner this wish can more often than not be fulfilled relatively easily, with special attention being paid to the temporomandibular joints.

Aligners are clear plastic trays that are custom-made to fit over the teeth. They are designed to shift the teeth into the desired position over time gradually. The aligners are typically worn for 20-22 hours per day and are changed every 1-2 weeks, depending on the treatment plan.

How Do Aligners

  1. The process of getting aligners involves a series of steps. The first step is to consult with an orthodontist who will determine if aligners are the best treatment option for the patient.
  2. If aligners are deemed appropriate, the orthodontist will take impressions of the teeth, which will be used to create a 3D model of the patient’s mouth.
  3. Using this model, the orthodontist will create a treatment plan that outlines the movement of the teeth over time. This plan is then used to create a series of custom-made aligners for the patient.
  4. Each aligner is designed to move the teeth a small amount. The aligners apply gentle pressure to the teeth, gradually shifting them to the desired position.
  5. Once the teeth have moved as much as possible with one aligner, it is replaced with the next aligner in the series. This process is repeated until the teeth have moved into the desired position.

Advantages of

  • One of the most significant advantages of aligners is that they are virtually invisible. Unlike traditional braces, aligners are made of clear plastic and are hardly noticeable. This is a significant advantage for those who want to avoid drawing attention to their orthodontic treatment.
  • Another advantage of aligners is that they are removable. Patients can take the aligners out when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene, as there are no wires or brackets that can make it difficult to clean the teeth properly.
  • Additionally, aligners are more comfortable to wear than traditional braces. Since there are no wires or brackets, there is no risk of irritation or discomfort from the hardware. Aligners are also less likely to cause cuts or sores in the mouth, a common issue with braces.

Who Can Use
Clear Aligners?

Aligners are transparent and very discreet. Adults prefer this option to traditional, more apparent orthodontic devices, like braces.

To find out if aligners are right for you, the dentist will perform a complete assessment of your mouth. Some serious alignment problems or other dental issues cannot be corrected with aligners.

In general, aligners can be used to correct overlapping teeth, wide gaps between teeth, some malocclusion problems (overbites or underbites) and upper and lower teeth misalignments. However, if teeth need to be moved substantially, the dentist will recommend traditional orthodontic devices.
