Most often, to align the teeth, most people turn to the services of an orthodontist who uses plates or braces. But if you need to straighten your teeth and correct issues with your bite without the use of braces, then aligners, will help you. They are almost invisible on the teeth and it is much easier to care for them. And most importantly, mouth alignment mouth guards can be removed at any time and you can go to an important event or enjoy your favorite meal.

How do teeth align with the help of the aligners?

Aligners are a set of transparent mouth guards for aligning teeth. At the initial consultation with our orthodontist, your pickup impressions and photos of your teeth are taken and sent to the laboratory to develop the mouth guards.

Within 2-3 weeks, laboratory specialists using programs and a 3D scanner calculate the required number of aligners, and also create an individual visualization of the changes in your dentition. It looks like this:

After that, you discuss with the doctor all the details of your future smile, coordinate the layout and order mouth guards to align your teeth.

After the aligners are made, you will need to wear each aligner for 20-22 hours a day for approximately 2 weeks to achieve a speedy result. Then you switch to the next aligner in the series. You will have regular check-ups, allowing your dentist to monitor how the treatment is progressing.
You no longer have to visit the orthodontist every month, as would be the case with braces. Instead, you can come to the doctor for a scheduled examination every 2-3 months.

How long should you wear aligners ?

We want to note that the alignment of teeth in adults lasts a little longer than in children, due to the fact that the bones become stronger and the movement of the teeth is difficult.

We consider the case of each patient individually, so the duration of treatment will depend on the current condition of your teeth. Sign up for an online consultation and change your smile once and for all.

What are tooth plates made of?

Most often, silicone is used to make the aligners, which is tight to the teeth. It is almost invisible during a conversation and does not shine on the pictures. Transparent mouth guards for teeth alignment do not scratch lips and cheeks, unlike braces. So during outdoor activities or contact sports, the aligners will not harm the oral cavity if something goes wrong.

Aligners cost

The price of mouth guards will depend on the complexity of the case and the number of aligned teeth. Find out the prices for aligners in the Prices section, and sign up for a consultation online or by phone +37123302158.
