What are Clear Aligners or Invisible Braces?

Invisalign Aligners

Clear Aligners (also known as Invisible Braces) are transparent trays made of special PMMA plastic. They help straighten teeth like braces. They use gentle and constant force to move the teeth into the required position without the hassles of metal wires and brackets. They are custom-made for each patient through a 3D digital scan.

Invisible braces may not be suitable for all misalignments. They are well suited for treating easy to moderate orthodontic cases including overbites, crowded or widely spaced teeth, or crooked teeth.

Invisible braces are a great option for adults and older teenagers, but traditional metal braces are the best way to straighten your teeth if you have baby teeth remaining. Clove Dental Experts can help you determine which option is best for you.

How do Clear Aligners / Invisible Braces work?

Aligners are custom-made for every person and designed to move teeth in the desired direction very slowly. This is achieved by digitally capturing impressions and processing the information using specialized software.

The future projections for better results and straighter teeth are computed, and then the milling machine automatically custom fabricates the set of trays for you. On average, a person needs approximately 14-26 sets for complete alignment.

The clear aligners or invisible braces come with an advantage i.e. they are very snugly fitting which over a period becomes virtually a part of the body and hence causes no speech problems. There are no restrictions on eating and drinking any foods as you will be removing them before every meal.

  • Crossbite

How to take care of Aligners?

Though clear aligners or invisible braces are the most comfortable option, there are certain things that need to be kept in mind while you have them on. Your Orthodontist will give you a set of guidelines that should be followed diligently, including:

  • You have to wear the aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day for effective results.
  • Remove your aligners while brushing, flossing & eating. Never have it on especially while consuming anything hot.
  • Keep your aligners clean. While you brush, make sure that you brush your aligners in the same way
  • Keep them safe in the box as given by your Orthodontist to prevent them from getting dirty

Things to be kept in mind post Aligner Treatment

  • Retain your smile with Retainers – Just because you’ve got your teeth straightened does not necessarily mean that they will stay straight throughout. Your Orthodontist might advise retainers which will prevent your teeth from shifting back to their previous location.
  • Take care of your food habits – It may so happen that your teeth are sensitive after the treatment, therefore, it is advised to not consume, too crunchy food for a few days. Let your smile rest before going back to the crunchy munchy snacks
  • Do not forget to brush – Keep up your habit of brushing twice a day and flossing in order to keep your teeth clean and healthy. Not taking good care of your oral hygiene will let the treatment go in vain.
  • Visit your dentist – Because you are done with your treatment and have got that perfect smile you always desired for does not mean that you need not visit the dentist ever. Always visit a dentist regularly so they can record your progress.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q.1. What are Invisible Braces?

Invisible braces, also called clear aligners, are custom-made, removable plastic pieces that fit over your teeth. They use gentle force to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position.
