How Do Clear Aligners Work?

Clear aligners are nearly invisible plastic trays that fit over your teeth. As you wear them, they apply gentle pressure on your teeth to gradually move them into their new, straighter positions. Aligners are designed to be worn for 20-22 hours daily and only removed when eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth. We design our clear aligners to correct cases of mild to moderate tooth crowding, gapped teeth, crooked teeth, and mild over- or underbites. Our dentist will develop a customized treatment plan to meet your oral health needs.

What Types of Clear Aligners Do We Offer?

Because we strive to give you personalized care that meets your unique dental needs, our office offers you three different types of teeth alignment treatment options. Depending on factors such as your alignment issues, budget, and smile goals, we will recommend the solution we believe we offer you the results you're looking for. The clear aligners we offer are:

  • Invisalign® clear aligners are the most well-known clear aligner brand. They are composed of SmartTrack material designed to move teeth predictably and comfortably. The materials do not contain BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten.
  • Spark™ aligners are an innovative option for those seeking orthodontic treatment. Their use of TruGEN™ material offers near invisibility and resistance to staining, which can be a concern for many patients.
  • CandidPro™ aligners allow for a refined process to make treatment fit your unique lifestyle, including using a teledentistry app to help track progress.

Maintain Your Smile with Clear Aligners

We aim to provide you with a lasting straight smile you can be confident in. Wearing retainers after completing a teeth alignment treatment is crucial for maintaining your newly aligned teeth. Retainers help to prevent any shifting or relapsing of your teeth back to their original positions. It's important to follow our dentists' instructions regarding retainer use to ensure the longevity of your straight smile and to preserve the investment you've made in your oral health. Our office offers both Vivera® retainers and in-house printed retainers to maintain your smile.

Vivera retainers are used after Invisalign clear aligner treatments and are composed of similar material to the aligners you wear during treatment, allowing for a seamless transition to the retainer stage. In-house printed retainers allow our office to get you your retainer faster than using third parties, including if your retainer because lost or damaged.

Atlanta Clear Aligners FAQ

Choosing to undergo clear aligner treatments can be a big commitment, and we are happy to support you through the process. Our goal is to make clear aligner treatments as seamless as possible and provide you with optimal care. We understand you may have questions regarding treatment, and our team is happy to provide answers and address any of your concerns. Common clear aligner questions are:

How do I care for my clear aligners?

Clear aligners should be cleaned daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush and clear antibacterial soap or specialized cleaning solutions made by the individual aligner manufacturers. It's important to avoid using hot water, as it can warp the aligners.

Treatment plan durations and result times can vary due to the severity of your alignment issue and individual needs. Patients typically complete most treatment plans within 9-18 months and can see results within six weeks.

While some initial discomfort or pressure is common when you first begin wearing your new aligners or after switching to a new set, invisible braces are made to be worn comfortably. It's typical for people to even forget they are wearing them over time.
