Questions We Are Frequently Asked About Clear Aligners

What are clear aligners and how does they work?

Clear Aligners are an innovative orthodontic method that uses a series of custom-made, clear aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces often do.

The process involves wearing each aligner for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move until they have straightened to their final positions.

How long does clear aligner treatments take?

The duration of clear aligner treatments varies depending on the complexity of your case and how often you wear your aligners. On average, clear aligner treatment time is about 12 to 18 months, though you may start seeing results in a matter of weeks. It’s important to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day for the best results.

Are clear aligners painful?

Clear aligners are generally considered more comfortable than traditional braces. However, it’s normal to experience some pressure and discomfort for a few days when you start wearing a new set of aligners. This discomfort is typically mild and is a sign that the aligners are working, as they gently move your teeth to their desired position.

Can clear aligners fix overbites, underbites, and other complex dental issues?

Clear aligner technology has advanced significantly and can now treat most common orthodontic issues, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, gap teeth, and crowded teeth. During your initial consultation, we will assess your specific needs to determine if clear aligners are the right treatment for you.

Will I need to wear a retainer after the clear aligners treatment?

Yes, wearing a retainer after any orthodontic treatment is crucial to maintain the results. After completing your clear alignment treatments, we will recommend a retainer that you should wear as instructed to keep your teeth in their new position.

How often do I need to visit the dentist for clear aligner treatments?

Clear aligner treatment typically requires fewer office visits than traditional braces. You can expect to visit us about every 4 to 6 weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned.

Can I eat and drink while wearing clear aligners?

You should remove your clear aligners to eat and drink anything other than water. This prevents staining the aligners and maintains good oral hygiene. It’s important to brush your teeth before reinserting the aligners after each meal.

How do I clean my clear aligners?

Clean your clear aligners by brushing them gently with toothpaste and rinsing them in lukewarm water. Avoid using hot water, as it can warp the plastic. It’s also important to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly.

Can teenagers use clear aligners?
Yes, clear aligners are suitable for teenagers. These aligners cater to growing mouths and include features like compliance indicators to help track how often the aligners are worn.
How visible are clear aligners?

Clear aligners are made of a clear, flexible plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. Most people won’t even notice you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.

What happens if I lose an aligner?

If you lose an aligner, contact us immediately. Depending on the situation, we might recommend moving to the next aligner in the series or ordering a replacement for the lost one.

Will wearing clear aligners affect my speech?

Some people might notice a slight lisp when they first start wearing clearaligners. This is typically temporary and should disappear as you get used to wearing them.
