Frequently Asked Questions
+ What are clear aligners?
Clear aligners are a popular form of braces that are used to straighten teeth. Our patients that use them, love them! If you are interested in getting clear aligners, please contact us so we can set up an appointment with our team.
+ How long does it take for clear aligners to work?
Clear aligner treatment can take around two years for your teeth to go from misaligned to aligned. The process is slow, but the end result is worth it. If clear aligners moved your teeth too quickly, your teeth could become damaged, which can lead to your teeth falling out.
+ How painful are clear aligners?
Clear aligners are not painful. However, over the first few weeks, there may be some discomforting pain. After you get used to your aligners, the pain or discomfort will go away. If you continue to experience pain even after the first initial weeks, please reach out to us so we can see if there is an issue.
+ What are the steps for clear aligner treatment?
Clear aligner treatment has a few steps. The first is that you will need to come in for a consultation where our orthodontist will examine your teeth and take x-rays. Then they will be able to tell you if clear aligners are right for you, if it is, then we will proceed to make a 3D mold of your teeth.
+ What is the difference between clear aligners and braces?
Clear aligner treatment is different from getting braces. Clear aligners use removable retainers where braces require brackets and wiring to connect teeth.
