Dr Shwetha’s Clinic
Process of Getting Clear Aligners
The process of getting clear aligners typically involves several visits to the dental office. During the first visit, the dental professional will assess the patient’s oral health and determine if clear aligners are a suitable treatment option. Impressions of the teeth will be taken and used to create a treatment plan and custom-fit the aligners.
Once the aligners have been fitted, the patient will be provided with a series of aligners that are worn for a prescribed amount of time, typically 22-24 hours per day. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced with the next aligner in the series. As the patient progresses through the series of aligners, the teeth will gradually move into the desired position.
The length of treatment with clear aligners will vary depending on the individual patient and the specific needs of their case. In general, treatment with clear aligners can take anywhere from six months to two years. Clear aligners are a popular treatment option due to their virtually invisible appearance and the fact that they can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. They are also generally more comfortable to wear than traditional braces.
Overall, clear aligners are a highly effective way to straighten and align the teeth and improve the overall appearance of the smile. If you are considering clear aligners as a treatment option, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Shwetha’s dental clinic at IRIS Diagnostics to discuss your options and determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs.
