To help you, he is happy to provide the answers to these commonly asked questions:

Q: How will orthodontic aligners help me?

A: Aligners will help you by shifting your teeth into their right positions. They will do so by forcing the teeth to adjust to the shaping of the aligners and the pressure applied to them regularly. By wearing your aligners regularly and changing them when needed, you can achieve your dream smile.

Q: What will treatment be like with orthodontic aligners?

A: You will need new aligners every few weeks. They are removable, so you will be able to take them out of the mouth to eat, drink and perform an oral hygiene routine. You will need to wear your aligners all other times of the day and night. Because the aligners are clear, many might struggle to see you wearing them.

Q: How do I know if aligners are right for me?

A: Typically, those with minor alignment issues can benefit from aligners. But your orthodontist will examine your smile and determine if this is the right option for you.
