Clear Aligners: Everything You Need To Know

Posted by Hallmark Dental Group on Dec 29 2021, 06:11 AM

A smile that we are proud to show off is everyone's dream. However, several reasons, like crooked, misaligned, or uneven teeth, can affect the aesthetics of one's smile. 

If you are looking for a comfortable and flexible option to improve the appearance of your smile, consider getting clear aligners from Hallmark Dental Group. 

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners, also called invisible aligners, are transparent trays that help straighten misaligned or crooked teeth without any metal wires and brackets. They are an alternative to conventional metal braces, and they use a constant gentle force to shift your teeth to the right positions. 

What Are The Dental Issues Clear Aligners Can Fix?

Clear aligners can fix the following bite issues: 

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

Clear aligners can also be used in children between 6 and 10 years of age during their phase I orthodontic treatment to align the existing primary teeth and make space to accommodate permanent teeth.

What Does the Clear Aligner Treatment Involve?

At Hallmark Dental Group, the steps involved in getting your Clear aligners are as follows:

  • Consultation and Scan

The process starts with an orthodontic consultation with our dental experts to determine whether the Clear Aligner treatment is right for you. We thoroughly analyze the patient's oral cavity and obtain a digital scan to develop a custom treatment plan. 

  • Preparation of Aligners 

After obtaining the patient's teeth impressions, our dentist designs a custom treatment plan using 3D technology. It is then sent to the dental lab, where the aligners are made.

  • Treatment Planning

The digital lab experts use the data from the digital scans to plan and determine the optimal movement of the teeth and the right amount of pressure required to achieve the ideal smile.

  • Upkeep of Aligners 

Patients should wear the aligner trays for 20 to 22 hours every day to get the best results. Also, change the aligners to the new sets every one to three weeks as recommended by our dentist. 

After treatment 

The final step is to use our custom-fit clear retainer every night to prevent the re-occurrence of malocclusion.
