  1. True or False: Each set will be custom-made.
  2. True or False: They can help teens and adults.
  3. True or False: The aligners need to be worn every day.
  4. True or False: You can remove them before meals.

Answer Key

  1. True. We will take detailed impressions, as well as photographs and x-rays, of your smile. We will send these materials to a special lab where experts will create a series of plastic aligners. Once complete, we can provide them to you to begin treatment. Being custom-made from a BPA-free plastic material means they fit comfortably and help patients avoid the gum and cheek irritation often encountered with metal braces.
  2. True. We can use them to correct misalignment in both teens and adults. We will perform a thorough examination to see if clear aligners are the best choice. For adults, treatment typically take a year. Since teens’ smiles are still developing, they may require up to 18 months. The exact time, however, will depend on the severity of their misalignment.
  3. True. The patient will wear them daily, somewhere between 20 and 23 hours depending on the dentist’s recommendation. About every two weeks, the patient will upgrade to a new set as his or her teeth are gradually and comfortably repositioned.
  4. True. You don’t need to avoid certain foods as you would with dentures. In addition, being removable means a much easier time brushing and flossing your teeth, which makes caring for your smile throughout the treatment process a much easier prospect.
