Hi, I have heard about aligners for crooked teeth and wanted to know if this producer is safe and effective as using normal braces. Also, what could be the possible cost for this procedure.
Thanks in advance!
The alignment by aligners is accomplished with a series of trays each made of clear almost invisible plastic that completely cover the teeth; each tray is slightly different, and when worn for 20 hours a day for two weeks before going on to the next set in the series, will move the teeth into an improved position.
The system is usually recommended for correcting mild to moderate crowding or spacing of teeth.
For more complex cases, this system may not be the treatment of choice. Traditional braces may be necessary in cases where the bite is really off such as when the teeth in the upper and lower jaws don't meet well, creating too much overbite or even under bite. An underlying skeletal discrepancy (the jawbones don't line up properly) may also indicate that braces may be the better treatment option.
Hello Dear Lybrate user, Aligners are the latest invention in orthodontics. These are very safe. These are clear and transparent splints. It cost you around 80k to 1.2L .Depending upon your condition of teeth. Visit a near by dentist for your queries.
