How Do Clear Aligners Work?
The first step in the clear aligner process is meeting with our team to discuss your needs. We will evaluate your bite and talk about your goals. If you decide to move forward with clear aligners, we can do that in our office. We can create a digital impression of your teeth and show you the options that your aligner can do. A digital movement of your teeth can show you the beginning and end results.
Once approved, we then send for the fabrication of a series of aligners. You wear each aligner in the series for about two weeks and then move onto the next one. This means if you ever lose or break an aligner, you just move to the next one in the series. It’s that simple!
