How do clear aligners work?
Our orthodontist will fit you for a series of smooth, comfortable, plastic aligners that are worn over your teeth. The aligners are swapped about every two weeks until your treatment is complete. The result is a smile you have always wanted without the embarrassment of traditional braces.
Instead of using wires, we use custom-made “invisible” plastic aligners to straighten teeth. This process can treat a wide range of cases, from overly crowded teeth to jaw problems and tooth misalignment.
We recommend wearing your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. Because the aligners are removable, you can floss and brush normally and you can also remove them during meals. Your aligners come with a cleaning kit, or you can brush and rinse them under warm water.
