What is the treatment process?
Your provider confirms you're suitable for treatment and may take x-rays, photographs and impressions of your teeth. These records are then used to design your custom-made aligner plan.
Your aligners will be sent from the laboratory to your dentist. After receiving them, you'll wear each aligner for around 2 weeks.
You'll visit your dentist every 6-8 weeks to monitor progress and receive new aligners. The entire process typically takes between 6-18 months, but this can vary depending on complexity.
After completing treatment, you will wear a retainer to ensure your teeth remain straight.
Patients may be recommended to wear aligners for 22 hours per day, however they can be removed for eating and drinking, as well as for oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing.
Alignment systems use small, controlled movements over time to gradually correct a smile.
