How Do Clear Aligners Work?

As with any dental procedure, your first step is a complete examination that will normally include scanning the shape of your teeth and taking measurements. This information will be sent to the lab technicians who will plan your progress through a series of clear aligners. They will 3D-print a number of custom aligners that you will wear as your teeth move into their correct positions.

These aligners will be sent to our office and we’ll bring you in to go over how to wear them. We’ll have you try on your first set of aligners and explain when to switch to the next in the series.

You’ll take your numbered aligners home and start wearing the first one day and night, removing them to eat or clean your teeth. After a week or two, you’ll start wearing the next set of aligners, and so on until your treatment is complete and you have a beautiful, even smile.

Our patients tell us how convenient it is that they can remove their aligners for portraits, sports activities, public speaking and other special events.

Clear Aligners FAQs

Clear aligners work similarly to traditional braces, with brackets and wires that apply pressure to your teeth to guide them into the desired position. The primary difference is that clear braces use brackets made of a transparent ceramic material that blends in with your teeth for a more subtle appearance.

The duration of treatment with clear aligners varies depending on the severity of your orthodontic issues. Typically, treatment lasts between 18-24 months.

Yes, clear aligners tend to be more expensive than metal braces due to the use of specialized materials and technology.

Patients with clear braces will need to come in for adjustments approximately every 4-6 weeks.

clear aligners may temporarily affect your speech while you adjust to wearing them. However, most patients adapt quickly and do not experience long-term speech problems.

Yes, you can still eat normally with clear aligners. However, you will need to avoid hard, sticky, or chewy foods that could damage the brackets or wires.

No, clear aligners are typically only suitable for mild-to-moderate orthodontic issues, such as minor gaps or crooked teeth.

Patients with clear aligners should brush and floss after each meal to remove food particles and prevent tooth decay. Orthodontic wax can be used to protect your cheeks and lips from irritation.

Clear aligners are resistant to staining and discoloration, but they can become discolored if you consume dark-colored foods or drinks frequently. Your orthodontist can provide advice on how to avoid discoloration.

Jon Minard
It was my first time going to Advanced Dental & Implant Center. The experience was very pleasant. The office staff, and my dental hygienist, Jessie was the absolute best. Our Dentist was very kind and after a very thorough exam, we were on our way.
Papi H
First time coming to this office. Everyone was friendly and I felt very comfortable. Jessie my hygienist was amazing! I highly recommend her if you want your teeth cleaned thoroughly. On top of that she has an amazing outgoing personality. I will be returning in 6 months to have my teeth cleaned again.Thank you for your amazing job Jessie!
Mariel Stimple
I had great experience as a new patient at Advanced Dental & Implant Center. The receptionists were very welcoming and the facility was very clean and beautiful – don’t be fooled by the strip mall exterior. Jessie, my hygienist, did an excellent job and she was incredibly friendly. The dentist found a crack in an old filling and they were able to schedule me in to replace it that same day! The filling took less than 30 minutes and was priced very reasonably. I look forward to coming back in 6 months for my next cleaning.
courtney frantz
I came in for what I thought was a simple infection to find I needed a wisdom tooth removed. Everyone was so kind in assisting me in the best way and making sure I received the care I needed to get better. I will definitely continue to see them in the future for all my dental needs.
Joan Wells
Five stars for Jessie at Advanced Dental & Implant Center. I got the best most professional cleaning I’ve ever had. She also advises what to do to keep healthy teeth. Great friendly atmosphere, even if you’ve only been there one time before, everyone remembers your name. Joan Wells
Mel McCormick
Excellent experience! The whole staff was professional and knowledgeable. Dr. Young explained everything and made me comfortable and pain free. A huge thank you to Paulina, Melia, and Jessie for their kindness and expertise in a stressful time. The front staff was inviting and cheerful. All around great trip to the dentist, I actually look forward to my next visit! Dr. Young was exceptional!
Dale Gardner
I am a new patient to Advanced Dental & Implant Center, so I’m more familiar with Jessie, the hygienist than I am with the dentist. Jessie is amazing! I don’t think I’ve ever had a hygienist who is as caring as she is. The office staff is very helpful, too. So far, I’m very happy with my decision to become a patient at this practice.
Susan Irey
Staff is very friendly and accommodating! My hygienist was amazing, she talked through every step with me. Great background music selection. We’ve tried other dentists in the area and BR Dental is the best we’ve found!
