The duration of the treatment with aligners depends on the complexity of the case and other individual factors. For achieving the best results in less time, one should strictly comply with the instructions of the orthodontist. For optimal results the trays should be worn for 20-22 hours per day and the trays should be removed only while eating or while brushing and flossing.
Advantages of Clear Aligners
There are several appealing features that make aligners a popular choice among individuals seeking orthodontic treatment.
Appearance: Aligners are in huge demand among patients who want the braces to be invisible and discreet. They are more aesthetically pleasing than the traditional metal braces.
Removable: Unlike the traditional or self-ligating braces, aligners can be removed as per your requirement. For instance, the aligners can be removed only while eating or while brushing and flossing.
Better choice for oral hygiene: With clear aligners you can maintain better oral hygiene. If you choose metal braces there are chances of plaque build up as it is difficult to brush near the brackets and elastic ligatures. Meanwhile, when it comes to clear aligners you can remove them while brushing and flossing giving no chance for plaque to build up.
Customizable: Aligners are custom-made to fit the needs of everyone. A 3D model of teeth is created using digital scans or impressions. It is later used to design a series of aligners that move teeth to the desired position.
