How often should I wear aligners?

As much as possible!  We prefer you take them out ONLY when eating, and brushing and flossing, and change the aligners every two to three weeks per step, wearing the aligners at least 22 hours per day.

The clear aligners we offer are designed to help straighten the front teeth, and this varies from patient to patient. Treatment can take anywhere from a  6 months to 10 months, depending on the complexity of the case.

How visible are clear aligners?

Clear aligners are completely transparent, which makes them much more discreet than metal braces. People usually don’t notice them. They’re not magic, however—you can see them at close range if you know what to look for.

Will I need to wear a retainer after treatment?

To prevent relapse, we usually prescribe a retainer after any orthodontic treatment.
