  • 01.suggestions to ensure a successful outcome of teeth aligners

Orthodontic treatment with aligners has become increasingly popular in recent years. Whether it is crooked teeth, misaligned teeth or crowded teeth; clear aligners are the first choice to fix them. They offer a discreet and convenient alternative to traditional braces. Along with that invisible braces enhance your physical appearance as they are not visible like metallic braces. 

If you are considering invisible braces treatment, you need to know a few things to make the treatment efficient. 

Here are some suggestions to ensure a successful outcome of teeth aligners:

Choose an experienced and qualified orthodontist: It is important to choose an orthodontist who is experienced in aligner treatment and has the proper training and qualifications. They will be able to assess your case and determine if clear aligners are the best treatment option for you. 

Follow the treatment plan: Your orthodontist will create a customized treatment plan that outlines the duration of the treatment and the specific instructions for wearing and caring for the teeth aligners. It is important to follow this plan closely to ensure the best possible outcome. 

Wear the teeth aligners as directed: Aligners need to be worn for at least 22 hours per day, and you should only remove them for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Failing to wear the invisible braces for the recommended amount of time can lead to a longer treatment time and less effective results. Also, if you are worried about your appearance, clear aligners will give you a perfect smile the treatment being almost invisible. 

Maintain good oral hygiene: Good oral hygiene is essential during aligner treatment, as the invisible braces can trap bacteria and food particles against the teeth, leading to tooth decay and gum disease. Brush and floss regularly, and clean your aligners with a gentle brush and mild soap to prevent bacteria buildup. Ensure that you are not reducing treatment efficiency with poor hygiene.

Get ready for the discomfort: Like with any orthodontic treatment, there may be some discomfort associated with clear aligners. You may experience soreness or discomfort for the first few days after switching to a new set of teeth aligners. This is normal and should resolve within days. A little bit of discomfort will bring huge benefits in your favour.

Avoid hard or sticky foods: Hard or sticky foods can damage the aligners and prolong treatment time. Stick to soft, easy-to-chew foods and avoid anything that can get stuck in the aligners, such as gum or popcorn. Never eat anything when the aligners are on, it will discolour them and affect their quality. 

Keep up with regular appointments: Your orthodontist will need to monitor your progress throughout the treatment and make adjustments as necessary. Make sure to attend all of your scheduled appointments to ensure the treatment is progressing as planned. After a few times, the orthodontist gives you a new teeth aligner set that needs to be worn under their guidance. Don’t be lazy to visit them personally or with LoveMySmile you can take online consultations. 

Be patient: Orthodontic treatment with aligners can take anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on the complexity of the case. It is important to be patient and trust the process, as rushing the treatment can lead to less effective results. Give your teeth aligners time to settle in with your set and the ortho problem and work accordingly. 


It is necessary to take precautions before starting the teeth aligner treatment. The right procedure can even speed up the process to correct your teeth’ alignment. Consult with the experts to avoid any chance of infection or injury due to wrong teeth aligners. Smile brighter with aligned teeth.
