Aligner trays are custom-fit and uniquely made for each and every patient. They differ from one wearer to the next based on the severity of their teeth misalignment. Clear aligners can help treat a variety of different aesthetic and structural issues with your teeth, including:
- Overbite – upper front teeth overlap lower front teeth
- Underbite – lower front teeth overlap upper front teeth
- Crowded Teeth – teeth are overlapping
- Diastema – small & large gaps between teeth
- Open Bite – upper front and lower front teeth slant outward and don’t touch when the mouth is closed

Each set of trays are designed to be used for several weeks and will make small adjustments until the next tray should be used.

- Crowded Teeth
- Open Bites
- Tooth Gaps

Take your aligners out and store them in the provided case whenever you’re ready to eat or drink. Once finished eating or drinking, rinse your mouth and your aligners before putting them back on.
Compared to conventional metal braces, clear aligners are much more discrete and comfortable. You may experience some pressure or discomfort within the first couple of days of wearing your trays, but this feeling will fade quickly.
