Like traditional braces, clear aligners progressively shift teeth to correct alignment, but they are easier to remove and more comfortable to use. Clear dental aligners are a more discreet option for straightening teeth than metal braces. As a result, they’ve gained popularity as a means of correcting crooked teeth.
A series of aligner trays must be worn during treatment to move the teeth into their final positions. A pair of aligners are created with a dental impression of your teeth and jaws. Gentle pressure is applied to your teeth by each aligner tray. Therefore, your teeth will shift and enhance their physical positioning. A new tray of aligners will be used after each minor adjustment has been made by an aligner. There will be no end to this process until your teeth are straight and your smile is radiant.
Do Clear Aligners work just like Braces?
Clear aligners are as effective as metal braces, with a much better appearance and a higher level of comfort, and oral hygiene.
Comprehensive Treatment Planning
You’ll need to schedule a consultation with your aligner provider to determine if you’re a candidate for clear aligners. If your orthodontist or aligner provider determines that you’re a good candidate for invisible aligners, they’ll create a comprehensive treatment plan to improve the appearance and health of your smile. That way, you’ll know how long exactly you’ll need to wear aligners and what outcome you can expect.
Feel Confident With Discreet Aligners
Aligners are a great option if you feel self-conscious about traditional metal braces. ALIGNERCO aligners are manufactured with clear plastic and fit snugly against your teeth. In fact, no one should even realize that you’re wearing your aligners unless they’re standing close.
Clear aligners are also ideal if you have a public-facing job or need to make an excellent first impression.
For those concerned about affordability of orthodontic treatment, ALIGNERCO’s invisible aligners may be worn at home and are priced affordably. Because patients no longer have to make regular trips to the dentist’s office, the cost of treatment is reduced when using home aligners.
Eat Your Favorite Foods
As clear aligners can be removed for meals, you won’t have to give up your favorite foods while undergoing treatment. This is different from what we counsel patients with metal braces who must avoid sticky and/or difficult-to-chew meals.
Clear aligner wearers should only remove them to clean their teeth after eating. If they don’t, they’ll increase their risk of cavities and ruin their aligners.
Having food and bacteria stuck to your teeth for hours is not ideal. A simple approach to avoid this is brushing your teeth twice daily.
Maintaining Proper Oral Hygiene
Taking care of one’s teeth and gums is essential to overall health and attractiveness. Metal braces, on the other hand, might make oral hygiene a challenge.
Brackets are affixed to the teeth with cement, and archwires link them together. Plaque and tartar grow when bacteria feed in the crevices created by the brackets, which trap food particles. Tooth decay may arise from this.
When wearing aligners, brushing, flossing, and caring for your teeth are doable. You should take out and clean these gadgets before eating or drinking. Consequently, you now have a cleaner and healthier mouth.
Comfort and Discretion
Modern technology and the absence of brackets and wires in aligners mean that they are less likely to irritate the lips, cheeks, and gums than traditional braces.
As such, they’re much less likely to irritate the soft tissues inside your mouth. This also dramatically reduces your risk of having uncomfortable mouth sores during orthodontic treatment.
Short treatment Period
Some people are reluctant to get orthodontic treatment because they believe it will take too long. This makes sense, given that some individuals would need more time in therapy to advance a jaw or fix other biting abnormalities.
For most patients, the treatment time with clear aligners is between 12 and 18 months. In any case, keep in mind that every patient is unique. The length of time it takes to treat you will depend on your condition’s complexity. Additionally, success will rely on your diligent use of your aligners, which requires a daily commitment of at least 20–22 hours.
What Issues Can Clear Aligners Correct?
Clear aligners have become increasingly popular, but patients still have questions about whether or not they can be utilized to treat every dental issue. Corrective aligner therapy has proven beneficial when correcting dental misalignments, particularly when more space is needed to realign the teeth. The following are some examples:
- Gap Teeth
- Open Bites
- Crowded Teeth
- General Crookedness.
Previously, only minor instances of dental crowding were amenable to treatment using clear aligners. While some issues, such as protrusion or over-rotated teeth, may require oral surgery, invisible aligners can correct many misaligned teeth.

Do invisible aligners alter the facial structure?
Yes. You could notice a good alteration in the bottom part of your face as a result of the dental movements that occur following treatment.
Can aligners cause yellowing of teeth?
Fruit juices, sodas, and other beverages can stain your aligners, which in turn can stain your teeth, if you eat them while wearing them. Therefore, you must remove your aligners before consuming such meals or beverages. Also, it is recommended to properly cleanse your mouth before reinserting them.
