What are teeth aligners?

Teeth aligners are a type of orthodontic appliance used to correct misaligned teeth. Aligners are made of clear plastic and fit over the teeth like a mouthguard. They are worn for about 22 hours per day and can be removed for eating and brushing teeth. Aligners gradually move the teeth into alignment over the course of several months.

Differences between aligners and braces?

There are differences between aligners and braces in terms of how they work and what they are used for. Aligners are typically used for mild cases of misalignment, while braces are used for more severe cases. Aligners work by gently moving teeth into the correct position, while braces use brackets and wires to physically move teeth into place. Aligners are also removable, whereas braces are not.

What is the average duration of the teeth aligners treatment?

The average duration of the teeth aligners treatment is typically between 6 and 18 months. However, this may vary depending on the severity of the alignment issue and the patient's compliance with wearing the aligners. Aligning all of the teeth can take some time, but the final results are worth it!
