Things To Know About Clear Aligner Treatment
There are many of us that are not satisfied with the way our smile looks. It is either crooked teeth that are making us feel uncomfortable or maybe our bite is not aligned properly.

Therefore it is important for us to address them as soon as possible, and now it is possible to treat crooked teeth or misaligned bite problems with the help of Clear Aligner Treatment.
Below we have mentioned some of the things that you need to know about this treatment. So without further ado, let’s have a look at what those things are.
You Need To Keep Your Aligners In As Much As Possible
The most important thing about clear aligners is to keep them in as much as possible. In fact, the amount of time they are worn throughout the day can determine the effectiveness of the treatment.
According to most orthodontic experts, you should keep your Clear Aligners in for the majority of the day, even after the initial few days of starting a new aligner tray which is especially important. You must keep them in for at least 10 continuous hours a day. You should only take them out of your mouth when you have to brush, floss, eat or drink.
Not only will it help make the treatment fast and effective, but the longer you keep it in your mouth, the more you will get used to it and the more comfortable you will be. Eventually, you can start feeling that you do not have anything in your mouth.
The Treatment Length Varies From Person To Person
It is also very important for you to know that the treatment length of clear aligners varies from person to person. Just because person A had their results in 12 months does not mean you will get the same results in 12 months as well. It could be more, or it could be less. The treatment length depends on your case and how much needs to be done. Therefore, before you start your Clear Aligner treatment, we will go over your estimated treatment time.
You Will Have To Wear Retainers When The Treatment Ends
After your teeth have been aligned with the clear aligner treatment; just like any other braces treatment, you will have to wear retainers to keep the teeth in their new position. How long you need retainers varies from person to person. Hence there is no standard time for it. After your treatment ends, your orthodontist will recommend how long you should wear retainers to keep the teeth properly aligned.
