What are the advantages of clear aligners?
Clear aligner therapy offers many advantages over other traditional tooth straightening services. The most obvious benefit of clear aligners is that they are transparent, making discrete teeth straightening possible. Besides being discrete, clear aligners are also removable. To remove the aligners, all you have to do is pop them out and place them in a case until putting them back into your mouth. Ease of removal is convenient for eating or cleaning teeth thoroughly!
How long does clear aligner therapy take?
Treatment time with custom clear aligners will vary on how much your teeth have to move and how often you wear the clear aligners. While clear aligners are removable, they should be worn for the recommended treatment time, which is likely all the time you are not eating or cleaning your teeth. Though treatment time will vary, on average, patients wear clear aligners for 12 to 18 months and can see results in as little as six months!
How can I take care of my clear aligners?
While you’ll likely only wear your clear aligners for a few weeks before moving to the next set, it’s still important to take care of them. Providing good care to your clear aligners can help minimize dental visits and keep your treatment on track. Care for clear aligners includes rinsing them when removed, brushing them (without toothpaste), removing them for eating or drinking, and soaking them daily to kill bacteria.
