How clear aligner works?
With its world class technology, we straighten your teeth with custom made series of aligners just for you. It is made of an invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth and it gradually and gently moves your teeth into place. No wire or brackets are involved in the process. All you need to do is to wear your aligners every day and change to a new set every 2-3 weeks. The aligners will be given to you in sets.
Can I still wear braces or clear aligner therapy if I have implants, crowns or bridges?
It is usually difficult and more complicated when dental implants, crowns or bridges have been installed. Dental implants cannot be moved easily because they are fused with the jawbone. For patients with existing bridges or crowns, tooth movements can only be minimal to avoid damaging the bridge or crown. We may need to move the teeth at a slower pace and the restorations should be monitored throughout the course of the treatment.
Can I do cosmetic restoration work during treatment?
It is advisable to wait until after your orthodontic treatment is done for better results.
