Clear Aligners

What are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are plastic trays that are customized to your teeth. Usually there are two aligners per set, one for your top teeth and one for your bottom teeth. They resemble mouthguards or nightguards.

How do they work?

With clear aligner therapy, you will receive several sets of aligners. Each set of aligners are worn for a short period of time (ranges between 5 days to 2 weeks) before switching to the next set. As you go through each set, the aligners will put small pressures on your teeth, moving them to their ideal locations.

What are the indications for Clear Aligners?

There are many indications for clear aligners:

  • Patients who want something more esthetic
  • Patients who want to be able to eat and floss normally
  • Patients who grind at night (the aligners act as a nightguard)
  • Patients who have multiple restorations
  • Patients who have gum or periodontal issues and need gentle movements
  • Patients who only want to come to appointments every 2-3 months
