Clear Aligners: The Comfortable, Invisible Alternative to Braces
Clear aligners are a popular orthodontic treatment option that offers a comfortable and effective way to teeth straightening. Brands such as Invisalign, ClearCorrect, and Sure Smile offer custom-made, clear, and removable aligners that gradually shift your teeth into the desired position.
As the name suggests, clear aligners are practically invisible, so you won’t have to worry about feeling self-conscious during the entire treatment. The aligners fit your teeth perfectly and are more comfortable than traditional braces, as they don’t have any metal brackets or wires that can irritate your cheeks, lips, or gums. They are also removable, which means you can eat whatever you like, brush and floss your teeth normally. For more information, watch Dr Atousa Moradi’s YouTube video about teeth straightening.
Getting started with clear aligners is easy. Your MC Dental dentist will evaluate your teeth, discuss your smile goals and any potential issues. If clear aligners are the right treatment option for you, your dentist will take photos, 3D scan and x-rays of your teeth to create custom aligners that are tailored to your needs. After about 4 weeks, you’ll receive your aligners and can officially start your treatment.

Teeth Straightening Options
Clear aligners are a practical option for correcting minor misalignments and spacing issues of your teeth. When facing more complex issues such as severe crowding, underbite problems, overbite, and crossbite problems, then braces may provide a better solution. Your dentist will work out the best plan for your teeth straightening options.
Overall, clear aligners offer an easy, comfortable, invisible, and effective orthodontic treatment option for many patients. Consult with an experienced dentist to determine if clear aligners are the right choice for you.
Clear Aligner and Teeth Straightening FAQ
Clear aligners apply a gentle, constant pressure to the teeth, gradually shifting misaligned teeth into the desired position over time. Each set of aligners is designed to fit the patient’s teeth at a specific stage of the treatment. The patient will get a new set of aligners every few weeks as the teeth move.
The length of treatment with clear aligners can vary depending on the individual case, but generally takes about 6-18 months.
Clear aligners should be worn for at least 22 hours a day, only being removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Your dentist or orthodontist will give you full instructions when the treatment starts.
Yes, you can still eat your favorite foods while using clear aligners, as long as you remove them first. It’s important to avoid eating or drinking anything besides water while wearing the clear aligners, as this can damage them or cause unwanted staining.
Some patients may experience mild discomfort or pressure when starting a new set of aligners, but this is normal. Typically, the discomfort goes away after a few days. Clear aligners are generally more comfortable than traditional metal braces or other teeth straightening options, as they do not have any sharp edges or wires.
Clear aligners should be cleaned daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and water. Do not use toothpaste, as this can scratch the aligners and create a breeding ground for bacteria. Special cleaning solutions are also available. Please consult your dentist when you visit MC Dental.
