How do oral aligners work?

Oral aligners are custom-made clear plastic trays that gradually shift teeth into their correct position over time. Each set of aligners is designed to apply gentle, constant pressure on the teeth, and is worn for a specified period before being replaced by the next set in the series.

How long does treatment with oral aligners take?

The length of treatment with oral aligners can vary depending on the patient’s specific orthodontic needs. In general, treatment with oral aligners can take anywhere from 6-18 months, with patients typically wearing each set of aligners for 1-2 weeks.

Are oral aligners painful?

While oral aligners can cause some mild discomfort or pressure in the first few days of wearing a new set, they are typically not painful. Patients may experience some soreness or tenderness during treatment, but this is usually manageable with over-the-counter pain relief.

Can oral aligners correct all orthodontic issues?

Oral aligners can be an effective treatment option for many orthodontic issues, including mild to moderate crowding, spacing, and bite problems. However, more severe cases may require traditional braces or other orthodontic treatment options.

Are oral aligners suitable for all patients?

Oral aligners are generally suitable for most patients, but there are some cases where they may not be the best option. For example, patients with severe crowding or bite issues may require more complex treatment, and patients with certain medical conditions may not be good candidates for oral aligners. Dr. Amar can evaluate your specific case to determine if oral aligners are a good option for you.
