Invisible Clear Aligners FAQ 101: All your questions answered
Are you starting your smile makeover journey with invisible clear aligners? You might have a ton of questions then. We have compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) here to help you begin your journey without any hesitation. So let’s get to it.
- What are Invisible Clear Aligners?
Invisible Clear Aligners are a modern and near-invisible Orthodontic appliance and a scientific method for correcting mild to moderate teeth alignment problems. They align teeth just as braces do, but using a transparent/invisible, removable clear aligner. Invisible Clear Aligners are designed to make small movements at a time, by putting gentle pressure on your teeth. That pressure is transferred through your roots to your jaws. During this gradual shift, your gums are reforming around each tooth. Once every tooth is in its proper place, your gums will adhere snugly to the teeth. Invisible Clear Aligners are 100% customized and made for your specific needs. They provide perfect comfort during treatment.

- Do I need to wear my invisible clear aligners at all times?
Teeth only move when forces are applied consistently. For that reason, you must be disciplined in wearing your invisible clear aligners for at least 20-22 hours per day. Otherwise, you will extend treatment and force compromises in the result. But this means you can easily take the trays out while eating, brushing, and flossing.
