What are Clear Aligners and How Do They Work?

Clear aligners are a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces. Unlike bulky metal brackets and wires, clear aligners are made of smooth, transparent plastic that fits snugly over your teeth. Each aligner is custom-made to gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions.

Here's a breakdown of how clear aligners work

Initial Consultation

During your consultation with a dentist or orthodontist, they will assess your teeth and determine if clear aligners suit your needs.

Dental Impressions

If you are a suitable candidate for clear aligners, you must select a provider and order an impression kit. You will make your impressions at home and based on those impressions, your provider will create a treatment plan for you.

Custom Aligner Fabrication

Based on the treatment plan, a series of clear aligners are created specifically for your teeth. Each aligner is slightly different, applying gentle pressure to move your teeth in a controlled manner.

Wearing Schedule

You'll typically wear each set of aligners for 20-22 hours a day, only removing them for eating, drinking (other than water), and brushing your teeth. This consistent wear ensures optimal results.

Regular Monitoring

Throughout your treatment, you'll have regular check-ups with your dentist or orthodontist to monitor progress and ensure everything is on track. In case of at-home treatment, you will be regularly monitored from the comfort of your home.

Retainers for Lasting Results

Once your teeth have reached their final positions, you'll switch to wearing retainers to maintain your beautiful smile.

Why Choose Clear Aligners? Benefits Beyond a Straight Smile

Clear aligners: an eco-friendly choice

Clear aligners offer a multitude of benefits compared to traditional braces. Here are some key advantages:

Discreet Appearance

Since clear aligners are virtually invisible, they allow you to straighten your teeth without the social stigma associated with traditional braces. This can boost your confidence and self-esteem during treatment.

Comfort and Convenience

Clear aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear, unlike metal brackets and wires that can irritate your gums and cheeks. Additionally, the removable nature of clear aligners allows for easy cleaning and maintenance.

Faster Treatment Times

In many cases, clear aligner treatment can be completed in less time compared to traditional braces.

Reduced Risk of Damage

Clear aligners eliminate the risk of damage to brackets and wires, which can prolong treatment with traditional braces.

Improved Oral Hygiene

Clear aligners are easily removed for brushing and flossing, making it easier to maintain proper oral hygiene throughout treatment. This can help prevent cavities and gum disease.

The Eco-Friendly Advantage of Clear Aligners

While a beautiful smile is the primary goal of orthodontic treatment, the environmental impact is a growing concern for many. Here's where clear aligners truly shine as a sustainable option:

Reduced Material Usage

Compared to traditional braces that require a significant amount of metal and other materials, clear aligners use a much smaller amount of medical-grade plastic.

Less Waste Generation

Traditional braces involve adjustments and replacements of brackets and wires, which contribute to dental waste. Clear aligner treatment eliminates this ongoing waste stream.

Efficient Manufacturing Processes

Aligner companies like ALIGNERCO prioritize sustainable manufacturing practices, minimizing energy consumption and waste during production.
