What Are Clear Aligners and How Can They Improve Your Smile
Clear aligners are a revolutionary way to get the smile you’ve always wanted, without anyone even knowing you’re in orthodontic treatment.
Clear aligners provide an excellent alternative to braces for orthodontic patients looking for a more discreet way to improve their smiles. The aligners are made of a smooth, BPA-free plastic that is so clear the aligners are virtually invisible once in your mouth. They use gradual force to gently guide your teeth to their ideal locations.
So, what are the advantages to clear aligners?
The first advantage is aesthetics. Clear aligners are much less noticeable than metal braces, so patients can discreetly go through orthodontic treatment. But the advantages of clear aligners go much further than just aesthetics. Clear aligners are:
- Removable – that means you don’t have to avoid your favorite foods while in orthodontic treatment because you’ll remove the aligners when eating and drinking.
- Easier to maintain oral hygiene – Because there are no brackets or wires to brush around, clear aligners make your oral care routine as easy as ever.
- Comfortable – No metal pieces are poking your mouth because the aligners are made of a smooth plastic.
- Completely customized to you – Your aligners are custom-created for your unique smile.
But how do the aligners work?
Just like traditional braces, aligners work to move your teeth a little bit at a time until the ideal positioning is reached. You’ll start with an initial consultation, where your orthodontist will do an oral exam and also take diagnostic records. These will be used to form a diagnosis and create a customized treatment plan.
This treatment plan includes a complete 3D rendering of your smile so that your aligners can be created. You will receive a series of aligners, each set perfectly calibrated to achieve a certain tooth movement. You’ll wear each aligner set for 22 hours a day for approximately 10-14 days before moving on to the next set. The aligners work to place gentle pressure on your teeth so that as you progress through your aligners, your smile and bite are improving.
