1) What will happen if you wear aligners for less time?

In general we have to change an old aligner to a new aligner every two weeks as long as you are wearing your aligners full-time.

Full-time means 20 to 22 hours a day taking them out only for eating and tooth cleaning .

If you wear them less than 18 hours in a day your teeth will move in the direction we want for 18 hours and then backward for the next 6 hours so you get about half a day's benefit at the most from it.

Basically if you drop below 18 hours a day you need to add another day to the entire process and even at 18 hours a day it doesn't work as well.

If you want to get a great result with Aligners you need to wear your aligners constantly if there's any stage in your treatment where you can change your aligners more often than to weekly we will tell you.

If you don't wear your aligner there are some teeth that are not fully fitting into the aligner there will be air gap between the Aligner and the teeth.

This is generally what happens if you wear your aligners less than full time wear ie 20 hours a day It will mean your treatment will take longer.

2) What to do with old Aligners ?

 It's a good idea to keep all your old aligners if you keep all your old aligners the ones you finished wearing as well in a packet somewhere it is good practice to do so.

We'll probably never ask for old aligners however there can be occasions where you lose some aligners as you go away on holidays and forget to take your aligners with you and your teeth fall backwards.

Sometimes we can use one of the older aligners to get your treatment back on track so please keep all your old aligners at the very least we asked you to keep the aligners prior to the ones you're currently wearing so we have a fallback plan if you were to lose your current set.

3) How do we speak with aligners?

Speaking and adaptation is easy and generally takes less than two days the only reason that speaking with the aligner becomes difficult is if you don't have your aligners. There have been patients who sing for a living who sing with their aligners in. Some are news readers who read the news with their aligners.

Many people in the public eye wear aligners and do not have problems of speaking therefore this is not a problem for anybody.

In the first hour that you do have aligners in your mouth for the first time you will find you are not accustomed to it more because your body thinks that something new is there in your mouth.

However after an hour your body decides that it's not food anymore and you stop salivating as much so for one hour you will have reduced salivation that you had before.

4) What do you do if Aligners don't fit ?

You'll see that in non fitting aligners there's air gaps between the teeth.

The first thing to do is to call immediately and let us know and don't keep changing aligners It will not magically get better we have to do something to fix it up.

5) What about if you feel your aligners are loose ?

Well just because the aligners feel loose don't change them they may be loose because you're not wearing them well enough and they're not fitting in the first place but they may be loose for some reason.

6) Should we change Aligner if we don’t feel tightness ?

Many people expect that at night treatment will cause them pain and discomfort and when it doesn't cause them pain and discomfort they think it's not doing anything and they want to change their aligners because the aligners aren't feeling tight and uncomfortable.

That is not actually what is correct what happens when you first put on aligner is it accelerates your teeth to move to a new direction just as if you were to jump into a car and accelerate from 0 to 60 kilometres an hour you wil feel it initially.

However once you're up and traveling at 60 kilometres an hour you don't really feel it .

So while moving your tooth It is the same thing we want to accelerate it by putting a new aligner when it is actually moving.

It spends the time traveling the distance to its new position before we need to push the accelerator again.

7) What are Attachments ?

Attachments are little tooth colored pieces of plastic that are glued onto the teeth and are removed at the finish.

At times we add two colored attachments to your teeth either on the inside of the teeth or on the outside front and back teeth it is quite commonly these are placed on front teeth we keep this process to an absolute minimum.

But you need to understand and accept that we do this for the best of reasons to actually get your teeth really straight if you don't have attachments you will not have straight teeth.

8) If attachments are required how long will your treatment last?

This will clearly vary from person to person when you get your aligners there will be a total number on the packaging but don't take that number as the absolute final number.

In about two-thirds of cases we will order some more aligners at the finish to get a really perfect result because we can't predict whether you've been a good wear or a bad wear or something minor may go wrong along the way.

So about two-thirds of the time when we get toward the finish we'll organize some new aligners to fine tune the result if you wear your aligners well and report non fit of teeth into the aligners or other problems as soon as possible your treatment will progress as quickly as possible.


9) How to go about while changing to a new set of aligners?

Changing your aligners for new ones should be done just before you go to sleep that way your aligners settle in overnight and are much more comfortable.

Studies have shown that about 70% of the stiffness and the discomfort with aligners will disappear in the first 10 hours so if you take that 10 hours during a time when you're actually asleep you'll find it's much more comfortable so the best thing to do is change new aligners just before you go to bed at night.
