What are clear aligners?

Clear aligners offer a different approach to traditional teeth straightening methods like metal braces. These aligners are virtually invisible and come in fully removable trays, eliminating the need for uncomfortable and unsightly wires and brackets. The design of clear aligners means they don't interfere with your diet or oral hygiene routines. Being removable, they allow you to eat all your favourite foods and maintain clean teeth throughout your treatment.

These clear aligners gently shift your teeth into place, moving them incrementally. Over the course of your treatment with clear aligners, you'll transition through various sets of trays, each set designed to continue the progression of aligning your teeth to their correct position.

Benefits Of Clear Aligners

Traditional metal braces, while effective, can often be uncomfortable and visibly noticeable. For adults considering orthodontic treatment, the visual aspect of traditional teeth straightening methods might be discouraging. However, clear aligners offer a modern alternative, eliminating the common stigma associated with braces through the use of nearly invisible trays. This innovative approach to orthodontics promises efficient results while ensuring the treatment process is convenient for the individual.

Clear aligners are capable of addressing numerous orthodontic issues, including gaps between teeth, crowding, underbites, and overbites. Often, clear aligners are suitable for a wide range of cases. Nonetheless, for more complex orthodontic situations, alternative treatments may be recommended.

How Do Clear aligners Work?

After your consultation for clear aligners, we initiate your treatment with digital modelling. Through the use of 3D digital imaging, photography, and X-rays, we produce an exact replica of your teeth and mouth. This information is then sent to the laboratory where your custom-made clear aligners are crafted. These trays are designed to shift your teeth gently, in accordance with a personalised treatment plan devised by our dental professionals. This plan ensures that specific teeth are adjusted at the appropriate times, aligning with the progression stages detailed in your treatment outline.

The duration of treatment with clear aligners varies from individual to individual. On average, patients may start to notice changes in the first few weeks of treatment, with the entire process typically taking between 12 to 18 months to complete. The time frame can vary depending on the complexity of the case, with some achieving results more quickly and others requiring a bit longer. During your initial consultation, a personalized treatment plan will be discussed, providing an estimate of how long your specific treatment is expected to take.
Clear aligners apply gentle pressure to shift teeth gradually into place, contrasting with traditional braces that rely on tightened metal wires and brackets. As you progress through different sets of aligner trays, each new set may feel snug at first but becomes more comfortable as your teeth adjust. Any initial discomfort typically subsides quickly, making the process smoother as you advance towards the latter stages of your treatment.
While clear aligners are an effective treatment option for many, they are not suitable for every case. A significant consideration is the need to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours a day, only removing them to eat and brush your teeth. This commitment is crucial for the treatment's success but is generally seen as a minor inconvenience compared to the fixed nature of traditional metal braces. Clear aligners may not be recommended for severe orthodontic issues, with alternative options discussed during your initial consultation.
The schedule for changing clear aligners typically involves a new set every 1-2 weeks, as recommended by your dental professional. The frequency depends on the specifics of your case and how diligently you follow the wear schedule. Not wearing the aligners for the advised 20-22 hours daily can delay progress, extending the time between changes. For teeth requiring significant movement, adjustments to the timeline may be necessary to achieve the desired positioning.
Clear aligners have proven to be a highly effective solution for teeth straightening, boasting success in treating over 14 million people worldwide. Research indicates that these aligners can address moderate orthodontic issues as effectively as traditional metal braces. With an average success rate of 96% for treatments like closing gaps, correcting crossbites, and achieving overall alignment, clear aligners are a reliable option for many seeking orthodontic treatment.
