Those questions are:

Q: How will orthodontic aligners help me?

A: The aligners will gently shift your teeth into the proper positions. This is possible because they will be shaped to make the teeth adjust. As you wear the aligners, and as you change to new aligners, the teeth will move into the right places to keep you on track with the treatment.

Q: What will treatment be like with orthodontic aligners?

A: You will need new aligners every few weeks. They are removable, so you will be able to take them out of the mouth to eat, drink and perform an oral hygiene routine. You will need to wear your aligners all other times of the day and night. Because the aligners are clear, many might struggle to see you wearing them.

Q: How do I know if aligners are right for me?

A: Your dentist will examine the smile and determine if this treatment is best for your orthodontic and oral health situation. Typically, those who have less severe misalignment issues can benefit from this treatment.
