What are Dental Aligners?

Dental aligners, also known as invisible braces, teeth aligners, and clear aligners are orthodontic devices that are used to adjust teeth. They are transparent, plastic mouthpieces that fit tightly over the teeth and work similarly to traditional braces for misaligned or crooked teeth. They are virtually invisible and removable, unlike braces.

At Pristyn Care, we provide orthodontics treatment and help patients to straighten their teeth in a less painful and comfortable way. The invisible teeth aligners are an alternative to traditional braces for people who want to enhance their appearance.

Teeth Aligners - Diagnosis and Procedure

Diagnosis 

Before giving the set of dental aligners to the patients, some important diagnostic exams are done by the dentist to determine the extent of correction. The following exams will be done-

  • 3D Scan- This scan is done to take impressions of the teeth so that the orthodontist can clearly see the tooth structure and check how your teeth align together. This test will help to design a new and perfect smile.
  • Dental Exam(General)– This exam is performed to ensure you don’t have dental issues, such as cavities that can interfere with the treatment. Though cavities won’t necessarily prohibit the treatment, but being aware of the condition will allow the orthodontist to customize the aligners properly.
  • Bite Registration- A bite registration helps in assessment of the relationship between upper and lower teeth. The patient is asked to bite on a piece of impression material which helps assess the occlusal surfaces and relationship of the teeth.

A polyvinyl siloxane impression is used to create the mold of the teeth or an intra-oral digital scanner is used for digital scanning of the teeth.

Manufacturing of Invisible Aligners 

A 3D scan is conducted to obtain a digital model of the oral tissues which is connected to a 3D printer. This model is sent to the orthodontist for approval. After approval, the aligners are manufactured using a CAD-CAM (Computer-Aided Design & Computer-Aided Manufacturing) software and stereolithography (a rapid prototyping technique).

The aligners molds are built in layers using liquid resin that turns into a hard plastic when exposed to the laser. The elastic thermoplastic material of the aligners applies ample pressure on the teeth to move them in the correct direction.

Note– If a tooth needs to be rotated or pulled down, the tooth will be colored and a composite attachment is bonded to that specific tooth.

As the clear aligners are not as rigid as metal braces, the flexibility of the aligners is compensated for required teeth movement. Reproximation or interproximal reduction is also used sometimes to remove the enamel between the teeth to get a proper fit of the aligners. It also involves reshaping the neighboring teeth’ contact area.

How Do Aligners Work?

6 to 48 aligners may be needed to achieve the desired results. You will receive a package of aligner trays for a 6 month duration of your treatment. Each tray of aligners is customized to fit the teeth. They gradually shift the teeth into a straighter position by applying pressure. The gradual movement supports the tissues while adjusting the position of teeth. The aligner trays are to be switched every 15 days.

Each clear aligner should be worn for at least 20-22 hours a day for 1-2 weeks. At the end of the treatment when final results are achieved, the orthodontist will give you an invisible retainer (removable or fixed). The retainer will ensure that the teeth don’t move back into the previous position.

Which is better- braces or aligners?

Invisible aligners are much better than braces as they are a less noticeable and more comfortable method of straightening teeth. But the clear aligners also have some limitations due to which, in some cases, traditional braces may be preferred.

Are dental aligners painful?

As teeth aligners gradually enable teeth movement, you are likely to experience mild and temporary pain over the course of treatment. It means that during the 10 to 24 months while you are wearing aligners, the pain will be consistent and bearable.

Can I eat and drink while wearing the teeth aligners?

Yes, you can eat and drink while wearing the teeth aligners but make sure to keep it moderate. Generally, it is not recommended to consume food or drink with aligners as they can get damaged and food particles may also get stuck in them. Sugar and starch trapped in the teeth and aligners can increase the risk of tooth decay.

Can I brush while wearing the aligners?

No, you should not brush your teeth while wearing aligners. It is important to take them out and then brush your teeth and aligners separately. And it is recommended to brush the teeth and aligners at least twice a day. For some patients, the doctor may suggest brushing after each meal. Along with brushing your teeth, clean the aligners too.

How long do aligners take to work?

The invisible teeth aligners take around 10 to 24 months on average to provide effective results. The length of treatment depends on the extent of correction needed for the patient. Thus, the timeline will be different for each patient.

How much do invisible aligners cost in Mumbai?

The cost of invisible aligners in Mumbai varies from Rs. 30,000 to 80,000 approximately. The cost of treatment depends on factors, such as the orthodontist’s fee, diagnostic tests, aligners manufacturing price, the extent of correction needed, etc.

How many sets of aligners will I need?

Commonly, most patients receive a total of 20 to 24 sets of aligners. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks, 22 hours a day. Thus, the teeth are straightened within one year.

How long do I have to wear the aligners in a day?

It is crucial to wear the invisible aligners for no less than 22 hours per day. As you cannot brush your teeth or eat properly while wearing the aligners, it won’t be possible to wear the aligners for 24 hours a day.

Can I contact Pristyn Care’s orthodontists after getting the aligners?

Yes, you can contact our orthodontist at any point throughout the treatment. You only need to book a consultation with the doctor and you can discuss all your doubts and concerns properly.

What are the limitations of teeth aligners?

The only limitation of invisible aligners is that they may not be a viable option for patients who have severe cases of crowding, spacing issue, underbites, overbites, or crossbites. In such patients, other complex treatments are considered for teeth straightening.

Will I need retainers after aligners?

Yes, to maintain the results of teeth aligners, it is important to wear retainers. Usually, the gum and the bone holding the teeth are not that strong to retain the new smile. Thus, retainers are provided for support and to maintain the results. The best thing would be to wear the retainers for at least a year.

What can be treated using teeth aligners?

With the help of invisible teeth aligners, the following conditions can be treated-

  • Crowded teeth or overlapping teeth
  • Overbites or the upper front teeth overlapping the lower front teeth
  • Underbites or the lower front teeth overlapping the upper front teeth

Benefits of Invisible Aligners

Invisible or clear aligners have the following benefits-

Aesthetic Benefits- It is one of the primary reasons why people opt for invisible aligners. Unlike metal braces and wires, these aligners are less noticeable. They are almost invisible to the naked eye. Thus, the patients don’t feel shy or conscious about their appearance.
Removable and Comfortable- The aligners can be removed and worn without any help from the orthodontist. You can remove them while brushing your teeth, eating, and flossing. The pain associated with aligners is also not as severe as with braces.
Easy to Maintain Oral Hygiene- As the aligners are removable, you won’t have to work around the wires and brackets to clean them. You can simply remove them, clean/brush your teeth and aligners and wear them later easily.
Less Problematic- Traditional braces often cause problems as the bracket can fall off or a wire can break that will require an immediate visit to the orthodontist. With clear aligners, there will be no such problems.

Why it is important to maintain aligner hygiene?

The doctors strictly suggest the patients follow all the compliances related to aligner hygiene to avoid dental issues that can interfere with the treatment.

Food particles constantly get stuck in the teeth. In some cases, the food is sticky which can be difficult to remove with normal brushing. If the food is stuck between teeth for a long time while you are wearing aligners, cavities will start to build up. This can compromise the treatment as a new set of aligners will be needed if this happens.

Some things that the patient must keep in mind to maintain aligner and dental hygiene are given below-

  • Clean the aligners and teeth with a good brush and for a longer duration to prevent bacteria build-up.
  • Unclean aligners can also cause bad breath. So, make sure that you clean the aligners properly.
  • Make sure that after removing the aligners, you place them in the tray carefully otherwise, they might get damaged.
  • If the aligners are not cleaned properly, they can also lead to tooth decay.

As you can see, it is very important to take the necessary dental and aligner care to prevent health issues.

Tips to Take Care of the Clear Aligners

Here are some tips that will help you take good care of the invisible aligners.

  • Do not keep the aligners tray open as dust or other particles can get into them. This can damage the teeth and gums and also increase the risk of bacteria build-up. So, keep the aligners tray in a safe, clean, and dry place.
  • Clean the tray and teeth daily. Throughout the day, bacteria will build up in the teeth and the aligners. Thus, it is important to properly brush the aligners and teeth with a soft-bristled brush.
  • Rinse your mouth after every meal to ensure that food particles are not trapped in the aligners.
  • Try avoiding wearing aligners while eating. This may not be possible sometimes while you are in the office or when you don’t have the aligners tray. But whenever possible, remember to remove them.
  • Take your appointments regularly. The aligners need to be changed after every 2 weeks. So, make sure that you see the orthodontist & ensure that the movement is proper.
  • There will be some food restrictions that must be followed throughout the treatment. Hard foods can damage the aligners. Thus, it is crucial that you follow the instructions strictly.
  • Avoid using denture cleaner, alcohol, or bleach to clean the aligners. Always use a soft toothbrush and toothpaste.
  • Make sure that you don’t smoke while wearing the aligners. Smoke can stain the aligners as well as your teeth.
