Clear Aligners are a series of custom made plastic aligners created based on the digital models made from the impression or a scan from the teeth.
There are a few points each person needs to know about these kinds of aligners:
Lingual braces (also known as invisible braces) are attached to the inside surfaces of the teeth that face the tongue. There they are practically invisible from the outside, even up-close. Besides being invisible, lingual braces have other advantages. First, they are far more capable and efficient than clear aligners for complex tooth movements. Additionally, even if oral hygiene is not ideal, any discoloration that occurs (white spots) will be on the inside of the teeth where it is not visible. Your orthodontist designs your perfect smile using state of the art technology. The process begins with a digital scan of your teeth, which are ideally aligned following your orthodontist’s treatment plan. A fully customized solution, including robotically bent arch wires are created just for you.
You’ll be able to eat normally while wearing a fixed appliance. However, you should avoid certain foods and drinks, such as toffee, hard sweets and fizzy drinks, because they can damage the appliance and your teeth. Your orthodontist will be able to give you further advice.
