Clear Aligners

Clear aligner treatment is an orthodontic method aimed at aligning teeth to their ideal positions and correcting dental misalignments. Compared to traditional braces, clear aligners stand out for their ease of use and aesthetic benefits. Additionally, the shorter treatment duration and the ability to remove the aligners during the day make this option particularly appealing for our younger patients in terms of comfort.

Frequently Asked Questions About Clear Aligners

What Are Clear Aligners?


Clear aligner treatment involves the use of removable aligners that gradually move teeth into their desired positions, correcting misalignments. Each aligner is custom-made and worn for an average of 15 days before moving on to the next one.


How Is Clear Aligner Treatment Applied?

One common question from patients seeking orthodontic treatment is, "How is the clear aligner treatment applied?" Let's walk through the process step by step:

  1. Initial Examination: During the initial dental examination, the patient's teeth are thoroughly inspected.

  2. Digital Scanning: Using state-of-the-art intraoral scanning devices, the patient's mouth and dental structure are analyzed. In some cases, traditional impression trays may be used to take molds.

  3. Treatment Simulation: A computer-generated simulation is created to show the patient how their teeth will change throughout the treatment. This allows the patient to visualize the expected results before starting.

  4. Aligner Fabrication: Once the treatment plan is agreed upon, custom clear aligners are created using 3D printing technology. These aligners are designed to correct the specific misalignments of the patient's teeth.

  5. Aligner Use: The patient wears each clear aligner for about 1-2 weeks before switching to the next one in the series.

  6. Regular Check-ups: Periodic check-ups are scheduled to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan.


Advantages of Clear Aligners

  • Invisibility: Clear aligners are nearly invisible, allowing patients to smile confidently throughout the treatment.

  • Removability: Aligners can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing, making daily oral hygiene easier.

  • Fewer Adjustments: Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners require fewer adjustments and check-ups.

  • Motivation Through Visualization: Seeing the projected outcome of the treatment beforehand can provide additional motivation, enhancing the success of the treatment.


Clear aligners offer a modern, convenient, and aesthetically pleasing option for orthodontic treatment, especially for younger patients. Discover why this method might be the right choice for your child's orthodontic needs.

How Many Hours a Day Should Clear Aligners Be Worn?


The key to success in clear aligner treatment is wearing the aligners for at least 20 hours a day. To ensure our patients wear their aligners for the required duration, we recommend using apps like TrayMinder.


Do Clear Aligners Correct Teeth?

By wearing clear aligners for the recommended amount of time, desired results can be achieved in many cases. Studies indicate a success rate of 80% to 90% for clear aligner treatment.


How Long Are Clear Aligners Worn? What Is the Duration of Clear Aligner Treatment?


The duration of clear aligner treatment varies based on how consistently patients wear their aligners and their level of adherence to the treatment plan. Additionally, the treatment period depends on the patient's dental and jaw structure and the desired outcome. On average, clear aligner treatment lasts between 1 to 1.5 years. In more complex cases, this duration may be slightly longer.

Can You Eat While Wearing Clear Aligners?


It is recommended to remove clear aligners before eating and store them in their case. After eating, brush your teeth and maintain proper oral hygiene before putting the aligners back in. Avoid hot drinks while wearing aligners, as the materials used in aligner production can be affected by heat. However, drinking water and unsweetened cold beverages is safe.


How Much Does Clear Aligner Treatment Cost?

The cost of clear aligner treatment varies for each case. Several factors influence the treatment cost, including the desired outcome, the number of aligners needed, and other associated expenses.  A precise estimate of the treatment duration and cost can only be provided after an examination and analysis of the patient's dental structure.
