It is a series of aligners that fit over your teeth and apply precise force to correct their position.

You should take them off before eating or drinking, except for drinking water. After every meal, brush and floss your teeth and put your aligners back in. You should ideally be carrying a travel size toothbrush, toothpaste and floss, everywhere with you to be able to brush and floss every time you eat or drink (other than water). But if you are out and about, and this is not possible, rinse your teeth with water before putting your aligners back in, and make sure you brush and floss at the first opportunity. This healthy habit will help you adopting good mouth hygiene, avoid any cavities or irritations and help your treatment go smoothly.

You need to wear your aligners for a minimum of 20 to 22 hours, each day for the regular aligners and for 8 to 10 hours for the night only clear aligners. Basically, the longer they stay in your mouth, the better! Also, each step of aligners needs to be worn for a minimum of 10 days before moving on to the next step of aligners.

You may want to rinse your aligners under cool tap water. But for added cleaning benefits, you can clean them daily with Daily Fusion Foam, which will keep your aligners clean, clear and fresh. Simply apply some of the foam inside the aligners, and use a soft bristle toothbrush to clean them. DO NOT use any harsh abrasives or other chemicals. DO NOT use denture cleaners. These cleaners are too harsh and can damage your aligners, by making them brittle or look cloudy.

Yes, there will be some lisping at the beginning of the treatment, but should go away in a couple of days, as the mouth gets used to it.

Yes, many Aligner-users have not had any issue with using Mouth Musical Instruments, when wearing the Aligners. It might take a few days of getting used to.

Our Dental Professionals strongly discourage the wear of Aligners during high impact Sports, as it can be harmful if the mouth is struck.

Treatment process

Aligners are clear, snug-fitting, customized & removable appliances that aid in movement or straightening of teeth

If the impression tray does not fit, please let us know right away, and our care team will send you new trays. Before you take your teeth impressions, put an empty tray over your teeth to check if the tray fits in your mouth comfortably. The tray shouldn’t be too loose or too tight, and it shouldn’t be digging into your gums. Make sure your back molars also fit properly into the tray.

When you purchase the impression kit, it will be shipped to you in 3-5 business days.

From the day we receive workable teeth impressions, a smile projection will be sent to you in 12-14 business days. After you approve and pay for the Aligners, they will be sent to you in 17-21 business days. So the whole process normally takes 5-7 weeks, unless there are any unforeseen circumstances.

As you complete your treatment, you should start wearing your retainers 20-22 hours each day for the first six months, and then for the next six months, you can switch to wearing them in the night only as instructed by our experts. If you don’t, your teeth will start moving back to their original position.

Smile Projection is a 3D proposed treatment plan, which is prescribed by our Technical team displaying ‘Before & After’ positions of your teeth. This Smile projection is sent to you for approval. If you are happy you can go ahead with your aligners. If you aren’t, you can always request a modification before we start fabrication on your aligners.

Some people find it difficult at first to get the aligners on the back of their teeth. It takes a bit of practice and getting used to, especially when the aligners are new to you. Be sure to follow the instructions on insertion and removal. If you are still having trouble, contact us, and we are glad to help you.

Once we receive your teeth impressions, it usually takes 12-14 business days to create your smile projection.

Our Dental Professionals strongly discourage the wear of Aligners during high impact Sports, as it can be harmful if the mouth is struck.

The Evaluation Process

An impression kit is used to get accurate molds of your teeth (Upper & Lower) to create your treatment. It contains a cheek retractor, impression trays & material, Practice Putty, Pre-paid shipping label, a pair of gloves, and an impression guide.

Yes, you can still get aligners treatment if you have missing tooth/ teeth. The good part is we can put a pontic where you are missing a tooth and you will need to get colored coating on your aligner to cover up the missing tooth space so there are no visible gaps during your treatment.

It’s up to you, but we recommend you to get a bridge/crown after the treatment gets completed. In case you get a bridge before you start with the aligner treatment, then, in this case, we request you to provide us with an X-ray so our team could identify the bridge and design the treatment accordingly. This is only essential because aligners can’t move a bridge.

If you are 14 years or above, the aligner treatment is the best fit for you. People from the ages of 50-60 can also have the aligner treatment.
