Clear Aligners in Jalandhar

Wants to have straight teeth and beautiful smile but don’t want to get traditional braces then Aligners are for you.

Clear Aligners are not visible but the covering fits tight on the teeth. These are less noticeable as compared to the wires and brackets related to other braces.


They are a set of custom made trays for every person and designed to move teeth in the desired direction very slowly. During the first visit, the dentist will make a 3D image of your jaw as well as mouth using a scanner. Then a plan is formulated which  helps to map out the exact movement of your teeth using specialized software, where the future projections for better results and straighter teeth are computed and then the milling machine automatically custom fabricates the set of trays for you.
Based on the further instruction of the dentist, You will insert a new aligner every two-three weeks until treatment is completed. You are required to wear the aligners for more than twenty hours a day. On average, a person needs approximately 25-40 sets for complete alignment.

The aligners come with an advantage i.e. they are very snugly fitting which over a period becomes virtually a part of the body and hence causes no speech problems. There are no restrictions on eating and drinking any foods as you will be removing them before every meal. Aligners are to be removed at the time of drinking, brushing or flossing, or while cleaning them.

How are Aligners better than other braces?

The best and the most important thing that makes Aligners better than braces are that they are virtually invisible. People standing in front of you might not even notice you are wearing something on your teeth.
Unlike other braces you can even remove them during drinking or eating. Another thing better is that it has no metal brackets or wires that could irritate or hurt your mouth.
Also there is no need to visit your dentist regularly but in other braces if a bracket or wire comes you need to visit your dentist every time that might happen.
Clear aligners are more comfortable and provide better fit according to your gum line.

How long does the treatment take?

The time to be taken for the treatment depends on various factors like how complex your case might be, or how much space is there in your mouth. But generally an Aligner treatment takes around 12-18 months on an average, but you might start noticing the changes in a matter of weeks.

How often do I need to wear these aligners throughout the day?

You only need to take it while eating, drinking, smoking, brushing and flossing. You even need to wear it at night while you sleep.

Do I need to wear a retainer even after Aligners treatment?
