Clear aligners are plastic trays that fit over your teeth to move them into a desirable alignment over time. There’s no pain, metal brackets or wires, or downtime associated with the clear aligners available at Championship Dental.
Some of the many benefits you can experience by choosing clear aligners include:
You can take the aligners out to brush your teeth and eat. And because they are clear, most people won’t notice you’re wearing them.
Your orthodontist reviews your oral health history and examines your teeth and gums. They often take dental X-rays and discuss your desired outcome, as well as your lifestyle and preferences, before personalizing an orthodontics treatment that best matches your needs.
After an orthodontics evaluation, your specialist digitally scans your teeth. That allows a dental lab to create custom-fitted clear aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth.
When your new aligners are ready, you wear them for 20-22 hours a day for 1-2 weeks as directed by your orthodontist before switching to the next set of aligners in your series. Take the aligners out of your mouth to eat and brush and floss your teeth, but wear them at night when you sleep.
After about 12-18 months, when your teeth reach their desired alignment, you can stop wearing clear aligners. However, your orthodontist might recommend a retainer, such as at night when you sleep, to keep your teeth in their new alignment long term.
Take good care of clear aligners by brushing them regularly or using a clear aligner cleaning system if your orthodontist recommends it. Brush your teeth after eating and before you place the aligners back in your mouth. Rinse them regularly but avoid using hot water because it can warp the plastic.
