How Do Clear Aligners Work?

Using an impression of your bite, your dentist will create a treatment plan that maps out the movement of your teeth, and this will determine the design of your aligners. A patient will wear a series of progressive, clear plastic aligners that slowly bring their teeth into their ideal positions. Each set will be worn for about two weeks for 20-22 hours a day, and the patient will attend periodic progress checks so their dentist can make any adjustments along the way.

Good Candidates for Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are typically recommended for teens and adults because they do require some discipline to follow the treatment. The aligners are removable, and while this offers great flexibility, it also means that it’s possible for some patients (particularly younger ones) to not wear them enough. Aligners are great for correcting crooked, crowded, and gapped teeth, but metal braces may be recommended for someone with a severely misaligned bite.
