Common Questions and Answers About Clear Aligners
Our goal is to help our patients better understand treatments they may be interested in learning about. Let us answer some common questions about clear aligners for you:
What are clear aligners?
- If you are unfamiliar, clear aligners are plastic trays that are custom molded to the shape of your teeth. A series of trays is used to slowly transition the teeth into the desired placement.
Are frequent office visits required?
- Patients love clear aligners because they do not require as many office visits as traditional metal braces. Patients take a series of clear aligner trays to switch out on their own, so they do not need to visit our office as frequently. Your visits are more to check on the progress of the teeth.
Are there any food restrictions?
- One of the biggest benefits of clear aligners is that the trays are removable, allowing patients to continue to enjoy their favorite foods. It is important to mention that the clear aligners need to be stored in a safe place when eating and being cleaned.
Is it easy to care for clear aligners?
- Patients will continue to clean their teeth the same way as always, brushing and flossing daily. We will provide specific instructions on how to clean your trays to ensure they are bacteria free and do not become damaged.
