18 Jan Teeth aligners
What are teeth aligners?
Teeth aligners are an alternative to metal braces and are designed to guide teeth into their proper position. Similar to braces, aligners use a gradual force to control tooth movement, but without metal wires or brackets. The aligners are made of a strong plastic material and are made to fit each individual’s mouth.
Aligners are worn for at least 20 hours a day to reach the desired maximum effectiveness. Each aligner is worn for 1-2 weeks before changing to the next one. The length of treatment with aligners depends upon the severity of each case.
