Aligners are orthodontic devices that are transparent, plastic forms of dental braces used to align teeth.
Aligner treatment involves an orthodontist or dentist. The upper and lower jaw impressions are made and eventually converted to a computerized digital model. The alignment of the teeth is virtually done on these computerized models in multiple incremental steps. The proposed teeth position after virtual teeth alignment is discussed with the patient.
The computerized model suggests stages between the current and desired teeth positions. Aligners are fabricated for each stage, after approval from the patient. These aligners are then given to patients along with the instructions to follow.
Each aligner is worn for 20 to 22 hours per day for two weeks. The average treatment time is 18 months and total duration of treatment depends upon the amount of tooth movement.
Advantages of Aligners:
- cause the least discomfort,
- help to maintain better oral health and need fewer doctor visits.
There are more than 20 types of different aligners systems available in market including Invisalign, Clear Smile, and Illusion aligners.
