DentCare Aligners are custom-made, clear, and removable plastic splints designed to fit over teeth. These aligners are replaced every two weeks to gradually shift teeth into their desired positions. They are virtually invisible, allowing you to remove them when eating meals or brushing your teeth. DentCare Aligners provide the best treatment option for achieving individual oral health goals.
The number of aligners needed by a patient is determined during the treatment simulation stage and can vary based on the complexity of the planned tooth movement.
Straightening your teeth is important for both health and aesthetic reasons. Over time, teeth naturally shift and move, and if misaligned teeth are left untreated, the condition can worsen. Having straight teeth promotes proper alignment of your bite, which contributes to the overall health of your jaw. A misaligned bite can lead to headaches, as well as pain in the neck and shoulders. Additionally, straight teeth are easier to brush and floss, reducing the risk of tooth decay and cavities
Many individuals postpone orthodontic treatment because they believe it's too late. However, it's important to note that you are never too old for DentCare Aligners. Countless adult patients have achieved satisfying results after straightening their teeth. This is a common concern that has troubled many people for a significant period of time. What makes DentCare Aligners particularly beneficial for individuals like yourself is that you can align your teeth discreetly, without others ever realizing that you are undergoing orthodontic therapy.
DentCare Aligners are designed to be pain-free. However, it is common to experience temporary discomfort, especially when transitioning to a new set of aligners. This discomfort is a positive sign that the aligners are effectively progressing the treatment process.
It is strongly advised to wear your DentCare Aligner daily according to the instructions provided by your dental clinician or as indicated in the DentCare Aligner schedule. You should only remove it when eating, drinking, or when brushing and cleaning your teeth.
To ensure proper handling of Aligners, start by thoroughly washing your hands with soap. Remember to handle one Aligner at a time and avoid biting it into place, as this can lead to distortion or breakage. Instead, use your fingers to gently place the Aligners over your front teeth, applying pressure on the left and right molars until they snap securely into place. It is crucial to ensure each Aligner is fully seated without any gaps between the tooth and the Aligner's edge. Failure to do so may result in improper tooth movement and a misalignment with subsequent Aligners, leading to wasted weeks of treatment. Take care to follow these instructions for effective and successful treatment.
When removing DentCare Aligners, start by simultaneously pulling them off from both sides of the back teeth, and then gently lift them from the front teeth.
Before inserting the Aligners, clean them using the provided soft brush and rinse with water.
In traditional orthodontic treatment, patients are given retainers to wear after completing their treatment. Unfortunately, a concerning 90% of patients fail to wear them. Wearing the retainer is vital to achieve the desired outcome. Similarly, with clear aligners, it is crucial for patients to adhere to the dental practitioner's recommendations and consistently wear them to preserve the treatment results.
