To help you, our orthodontist is happy to provide answers to commonly asked questions, like:
Q: How will orthodontic aligners help me?
A: The aligners will gently shift your teeth into the proper positions. This is possible because they will be shaped to make the teeth adjust. As you wear the aligners, and as you change to new aligners, the teeth will move into the right places to keep you on track with the treatment.
Q: What will treatment be like with orthodontic aligners?
A: You will be able to remove the aligners to eat, drink, brush and floss, but you will need to wear the aligners all other hours of the day. Because the aligners are clear, it can be tough for others to see that you are aligning your smile.
Q: How do I know if aligners are right for me?
A: Your dentist will examine your mouth, consider your alignment and smile goals and determine if this is the right treatment for you.
