Clear aligners are an effective alternative to traditional braces, and involve a system of clear, removable trays used to straighten teeth. Each aligner is custom-made to fit over your teeth and is designed to gradually move teeth into their proper position. Using clear aligners for orthodontic treatment is not for everyone. The best way to find out if clear aligners are the right option for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Vinod Chandel.

Clear Aligners are substitute to traditional braces and are made to help guide teeth into their real position. Like braces, clear aligners also use a tool that controls tooth movement, but without those ugly metal braces. The aligners are made of a medical grade plastic material and are designed to fit each individual’s mouth. If a number of aligners are made, each aligner moves the teeth a little till the final desired positions is achieved.
Dental aligners are supposed to be worn for atleast of minimum 20 hours a day to reach the desired results. Each aligner is worn for two weeks before switching to the next one. The length of treatment with dental aligners depend upon the complexity of the case. Normally, aligner treatment can be as short as three months or as long as 48 months as well. But inspite of this, it is a much shorter treatment than traditional braces.

The system is usually recommended for correcting mild to moderate crowding or spacing of teeth. It’s ideal if you have a good “bite” — meaning your back teeth already fit together properly. With a good bite, biting forces distribute evenly on all of your teeth, which also protects the health of the supporting periodontal structures, the gums and bone. With a bad bite, forces are uneven, creating uneven wear and instability of the tooth position.

If clear aligners are improperly planned, bite problems can develop. Another side effect (not unique to this system) involves cases where “recession” (shrinking of the gums) can occur by tipping teeth too far out of the bone in an attempt to make them straight. There are other cases where the back teeth don’t fit together properly after inadequate treatment planning. Again, problems can occur with any orthodontic treatment if it is not planned and/or applied correctly.

For some moderate to severe crowding or spacing, or more complex cases, this system may not be the treatment of choice. Traditional braces may be necessary in cases where the bite is really off such as when the teeth in the upper and lower jaws don’t meet well, creating too much overbite or even under bite. An underlying skeletal discrepancy (the jawbones don’t line up properly) may also indicate that braces may be the better treatment option.

That being said, assessing a “malocclusion” (poor tooth or bite alignment) is complex and must be fully understood in order to choose the right treatment option. There are several movements that are difficult and less predictable with removable clear aligners, like closing extraction spaces, uprighting teeth, opening severe deep bites, rotating, torquing or other more complex movements requiring more sophisticated techniques. These movements are easily accomplished with traditional braces; however, with careful treatment planning and “staging” of clear aligners, experienced practitioners can successfully accomplish many of these finishing movements.

Orthodontics with clear aligners is not a one-size or one-price-fits-all treatment. Ultimately, the final results depend heavily on who treats you — which may vary from one doctor to another. In reality, orthodontic treatment is art as well as science. Treatment planning cases and moving the teeth efficiently and realistically is based on careful and proper diagnosis and experience. Another factor with clear aligners is that some systems are not using computer generated movements and are poor imitations of the most recognized, state-of-the-art clear orthodontic aligning system used in dentistry today. Ask us about which system is recommended.

Invisalign clear aligners are used as an alternative to traditional braces, and are designed to help guide teeth into proper position. Just like braces, Invisalign clear aligners use gradual force to control tooth movement, but without any metal wires or brackets.

The aligners are made with a strong plastic material that has been fabricated to fit your mouth. As treatment progresses, you switch aligners. Each aligner is a little different, so your teeth move a little more with every change.

Aligners are worn for at least 20 hours each day, and you’ll receive a new aligner every two weeks. The length of your treatment depends on the severity of your case. Treatment can take anywhere from six months to two years.

Our expert dentists follow a specific process for this treatment, which is as follows:

1. When you first approach us for an appointment, we prefer to fix a consultation session as per your convenience and availability of our dentists.

2. The first face to face session is dedicated to educate you about the treatment and its pros and cons. Also, an initial examination is done to thoroughly check the condition of your teeth and accordingly suggest the right kind of treatment for you.

3. If clear aligners will be the best suitable option for your dental problems then, our dentists take an x-ray and impression of your teeth so that clear aligners can be customized to fit your teeth without causing you inconvenience.

4. When the clear braces are ready and received from the lab, they will be fitted for you by our orthodontist.

5. Dentist will recommend quarterly visits to the clinic so as to check the progress.

6. After the completion of the treatment, permanent invisible retainers are fixed so that teeth stay in the corrected position.

Clear aligners are a great alternative for patients who want a straighter smile but do not want to wear metal braces, or for patients who have had treatment in the past and want to make minor corrections to their smile. There are several advantages to orthodontic treatment with clear aligners.

  • Clear aligners are easier to keep clean, making it easier to maintain the health of your teeth and gums.
  • Clear aligners are comfortable and less likely to irritate your gums and cheeks.
  • Clear aligners prevent wear on the teeth from tooth grinding.
  • Clear aligners are removable, so it’s easier for you to brush and floss after meals.

OUR DOCTORS

“Children and adults should go for a dental check-ups at least twice a year. Those who are at greater risk for oral diseases (smokers, pregnant women, diabetes) may require more frequent dental check-ups.”
