How Easy Is It To Get Straight Teeth?

everything you need to know about Clear aligners

What Are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners, or also known as Invisalign, is a popular orthodontic treatment that uses clear, plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible and do not have any wires or brackets.



One of the main benefits of clear aligners is that the aligners are nearly invisible, making it a popular choice for adults who are looking for a discreet orthodontic solution. They are also removable, which allows for easy eating, brushing, and flossing.


How Long Do I Have To Wear The Aligners?

Invisalign treatment typically lasts between 9 and 15 months, depending on the complexity of the case and the amount of tooth movement needed. The aligners need to be worn 21-23 hours a day. The only time they should be removed is while eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.


It is important to attend all of your scheduled appointments with your dentist and to wear the aligners as directed. This will help ensure that your treatment progresses as planned and that you achieve the desired results.


The total cost of treatment will vary based on the length of treatment, the complexity of the case, and the dentist that is providing the treatment.


Will It Work As Well As Braces

When compared to braces, clear aligners can work just as well or better than braces for simple cases. For more complex cases, braces are still the recommended choice.


If there are concerns that the aligners wont be worn for more than 20 hours per day then braces would also be recommended.


Overall, clear aligners are a highly effective and convenient orthodontic treatment that can help straighten teeth and improve your smile. If you are considering clear aligners, it is important to talk to a dentist or orthodontist to determine if it is the right solution for you and to understand the benefits and risks of the procedure.
