2. Teeth are expected to straighten very quickly
Understandably, every patient expects to reach their goals as soon as possible. However, not all results are noticeable after a day or two. The exact deadline depends on the individual situation. If the aligners are worn for at least 22 hours a day, it is likely that the results will be visible after 12 months or several years (depending on the situation, what the patient’s bite is etc.).
3. Proper maintenance of aligners
In order to straighten teeth with aligners and to have them straight, it is important to take good care of them. The main recommendation is not to eat or drink (especially coloring, hot) drinks after putting on the aligners. This can affect the color of the instrument, and the aligners can be deformed. For the latter reason, after removing the aligners, they should not be left in random places. It is necessary to protect the instrument from heat. It is recommended to purchase a special box that will ensure that the aligners are stored safely and tidily.
Straightening teeth with clear aligners is a great choice for those who dream of a smooth smile, but do not want to wear braces. We offer our patients a barely noticeable method of teeth straightening without braces: “AirNivol” and “Invisalign” teeth straightening systems.
