What is Clear aligner therapy?

Clear aligner therapy is a popular type of orthodontic treatment to address a wide range of orthodontic issues. Clear aligner therapy uses a series of custom-made, discreet, clear plastic retainers that gradually straighten your teeth and/or correct your bite. Clear aligners are made of a comfortable material that is generally less irritating to gums and cheeks than traditional metal braces.

Clear aligners work by applying gentle, constant pressure to your teeth, gradually moving them into the desired position over time. Each set of aligners is custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly, and you’ll wear each set for a specified amount of time before moving on to the next set in the series.

What are the benefits of clear aligners ?

Clear aligners have multiple benefits. These includes:

They are removable, allowing you to take them out to eat, brush, and floss.
This enhances comfort and convenience, and makes it simpler for you to maintain good oral hygiene throughout the treatment process.
However, it is important to wear the aligners for the recommended amount of time each day to achieve the best results.
