How Clear Aligners Work

You’ll actually wear multiple aligners throughout the course of the treatment. Each one is designed to move the teeth a little closer to the goal until you have the straight smile of your dreams. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, and they should stay in your mouth for at least 22 hours each day. Every six weeks or so, you’ll come back to our dental office for a progress check; we’ll make sure that everything is going according to plan.

Benefits of Clear Aligners

It’s very hard to see a clear aligner that has been designed to fit perfectly on the teeth; most people probably won’t even realize it’s there unless you let them know. But you won’t just enjoy a more image-friendly treatment; you’ll have the convenience of aligners that can be removed during mealtimes so that they don’t get in the way of eating whatever you want. Compared to braces, clear aligners tend to yield faster results, with most treatments taking about 12 to 18 months.
