What is Clear Aligner Therapy?
Clear removable appliance therapy utilizes custom-made thermoplastic removable appliances to correct orthodontic concerns. 3D scans are taken to project and estimate your treatment duration and results. We recommend clear removable appliances to patients who would like to treat mild to moderate misalignment, crowding and to correct their bite.
The Process of Receiving Clear Aligner Therapy
The first step is to schedule a consultation. During a consultation, our dentist will determine if your dental concerns can be addressed with clear removable appliances. If you are an ideal candidate, we will take scans of your teeth to create your removable appliances. Once you receive your customized removable appliances, please wear them for twenty to twenty-two hours every day. We recommend only removing the removable appliances when you eat or brush. If you wear your removable appliances for less than twenty hours a day, you may prolong your treatment. After you have completed your treatment, it’s essential to wear your retainer. The retainer will help to maintain the new positions of your teeth.
The Benefits of Clear Aligner Therapy
Clear removable appliances are beneficial in many ways, including:
- They are virtually invisible
- They are comfortable
- They require fewer dental visits
- They are removable
- It’s easy to brush and floss your teeth
- You can eat all the foods you love without restrictions
Maintaining Your Clear Aligners
It’s important to take care of your removable appliances. We recommend cleaning your removable appliances on a daily basis with a clear soap. Please gently brush to avoid scratching your removable appliances. It is also recommended to rinse your removable appliances before and after each wear. We also recommend avoiding dark-coloured foods that can stain your removable appliances.
