ALIGNERS

ALIGNERS

Aligners are clear, transparent sequential set of trays that fit snugly onto your teeth and effect tooth movement in stages.
These are invisible, removable and there are no fixed attachments on your tooth.

How are they made?

Aligners provide the same results in alignment as braces but take a longer duration especially in complex cases. Hence are more preferred in cases of mild correction with proper bite.

Is it painful?

It should be worn all through the day, 22 hours at least. Each aligner should be worn for 2 weeks or as recommended by the dentist.

Should retainer be used as a follow up?

This has to be worn minimum of one year. This is a must, as tooth tends to be loose till bone forms in its new position; hence without retainer to hold its position they tend to revert to their old position.
