For many reasons, people of all ages are turning to teeth straightening at home. Along with being convenient and discreet, improving your smile with clear braces is often a faster and more affordable process than traditional metal braces. But are they safe? To achieve a healthy, beautiful smile with ALIGNERCO, here’s what you should know about safety and how to straighten teeth at home.

How Do At-Home Clear Aligners Work?

Using ALIGNERCO’s at-home clear aligner system couldn’t be easier. Your treatment will begin by taking an impression of your mouth at home. This is performed with a professional kit delivered right to your door. After you send the impression back to us, a licensed dental expert will examine it to ensure you are a good candidate. If approved, you will receive a customized set of clear aligner trays in the mail every two weeks until your treatment is complete (usually around eighteen months). Once you’ve achieved the smile of your dreams, you’ll wear a clear retainer to maintain your gorgeous new smile for years to come.

What Are the Benefits of Using At-Home Clear Aligners?

More people than ever are choosing to improve their smiles with at-home clear aligners. And for good reason! Unlike traditional metal braces that require people to change their eating habits, make frequent trips to the orthodontist for adjustments, clear aligners allow people to discreetly straighten their teeth without making any changes to their diets and never stepping foot in an orthodontist’s office. Better still, clear aligners can enhance the beauty of your smile, make speaking and eating easier, and boost your confidence in as little as twelve to eighteen months.

How Do At-Home Clear Aligner Companies Encourage Safety?

At ALIGNERCO, safety is our top priority. While we can’t guarantee that each of our patients will use their clear aligners in the recommended way, ALIGNERCO always takes the necessary precautions and institutes policies to make our product as safe as possible, including:

How Can You Achieve the Safest Experience With Your Clear Aligners?

At ALIGENRCO, we are proud to offer safe and effective quality products. While this is true, how our patients use our products and care for their oral health is just as important to achieving amazing results when their treatment is complete.  Here are some steps you can take to keep your clear aligner treatment as safe as possible:

Follow Your Treatment Plan

Once you receive your ALIGNERCO aligners in the mail, you’ll also receive a set of detailed instructions for your at home teeth straightening kits. These detail how and when to wear your clear braces. For most people, this means wearing your aligner trays for at least 22 hours a day and replacing them every two weeks. While it seems like a good idea to swap out your aligners sooner than recommended or leave your aligners out for more than two hours idea, doing so can lead to serious issues, such as damaging your teeth or longer treatment times. Following your treatment plan carefully can make a big difference in improving your smile quickly, effectively, and safely.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Brushing and flossing thoroughly every day while wearing at home clear aligners is essential for teeth straightening at home. Wearing your aligner trays with food particles and bacteria on your teeth puts you at a greater risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease, and infection. When dental problems arise, your treatment plan could be prolonged.

Keep Routine Dental Appointments

Before you undergo any type of orthodontic treatment, your dentist must confirm your mouth is healthy and strong enough. Along with a preliminary dental appointment, be sure to visit your dentist every six months for routine exams and professional cleanings. This can catch any minor dental concerns that could affect your treatment process if left untreated. And, it can help your teeth and gums look their best when your aligners come off.

Keep Communication With ALIGNERCO Open

You won’t be visiting an orthodontist’s office every month as you would with metal braces. Therefore, you must keep an open line of communication with the dental team at ALIGNERCO. This is especially important if you experience any problems or concerns. If your aligners are causing discomfort, break, or you have a dental emergency, it’s best to let ALIGNERCO know.  This way, you can avoid extending your treatment time or an added expense.
