How Do Clear Aligners Work?
Just like traditional braces, clear aligners utilize an oral appliance that gently and strategically places pressure on your teeth to shift them into their ideal positions. Different from braces, aligners are clear, smooth, and removable. At your consultation, we will develop a treatment plan unique to you.
We will check your progress about every 6 weeks or so in a quick, 15-minute appointment at which we will also give you the next sets of trays. Every patient has a unique treatment timeline that is dependent on the severity of misalignment, but treatment lasts eight to 14 months, on average.
