How Clear Aligners Work
How it works
The amount of time the retainers will be needed for can vary – like more traditional braces, it depends on the severity of the case and how much the teeth need to move to reach their desired outcome. It can vary from a few months to a couple of years – when it is a longer amount of time it isn’t such a daunting prospect knowing that you can still take them out for meals! Of course, they must be worn for at least 22 hours of the day to be able to work to their full potential. This will be monitored by the dentist; the patient will receive a new set of aligners every so often as the teeth move. The aligners work by putting pressure on the teeth that need to be moved so of course, the more the aligners are worn, the more effect it will have on the teeth.
The aligners themselves are made using cutting edge technology, based on scans and an assessment of the patient’s teeth and jaw. This is monitored closely as the teeth begin to move, to ensure that the patient receives exactly what is needed every step of the way. This is the perfect solution for those who do not want braces that look obvious, and of course to be able to eat normally whilst receiving the treatment is a huge benefit!
