Receiving your aligners
When your custom aligners are ready we will simply post them to you. Our dentist will ensure they fit properly and instruct you on how to wear and care for them. Typically, you’ll be advised to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day, only removing them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. If you commit to wearing your aligners for this amount of time on a daily basis, you’ll complete your treatment within 6-10 months.
Alternatively, you may opt to only wear your aligners at night (usually while you sleep). This is a perfect option if you are concerned about wearing your aligners in public or at work or school. Wearing your aligners at night only will typically prolong the treatment time. Your estimated treatment completion time will be provided by your Treatment Advisor though it’s important to note that only wearing your aligners at night can prolong the treatment time up to 24-months.
