Aligners refer to a type of orthodontic device that is used to straighten teeth and improve a person's bite. They are a clear and removable alternative to traditional metal braces.

Aligners work by applying gentle, constant pressure to the teeth, gradually moving them into their desired position. They are custom-made for each individual patient using 3D digital imaging technology. Aligners are popular because they are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.

What is the Procedure for Aligners?

The procedure for aligners typically involves several steps, which may include:

  • Consultation: The first step is to consult with an orthodontist or dentist who specializes in aligner treatment. During the consultation, the orthodontist will evaluate your teeth and jaw and determine if aligners are a suitable treatment option for your condition.

  • Treatment planning: If aligners are recommended, the orthodontist will take impressions of your teeth and use them to create a treatment plan. This plan will outline the movements that your teeth will need to make to achieve the desired alignment.

  • Aligner fabrication: Based on the treatment plan, a series of custom-made aligners will be fabricated using computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology. Each aligner will be slightly different to gradually shift the teeth into the desired position.

  • Wearing the aligners: Once the aligners are ready, the orthodontist will provide instructions on how to wear them. Typically, aligners are worn for 20 to 22 hours per day and are removed only for eating and oral hygiene.

  • Follow-up appointments: Throughout the treatment process, the orthodontist will schedule periodic follow-up appointments to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan.

  • Completion of treatment: Once the final set of aligners has been worn, the orthodontist may recommend a retainer to help maintain the new teeth position. This retainer may be worn full-time initially and then gradually reduced to nighttime wear only.
