Customized Treatment: A dentist or orthodontist begins by taking digital impressions or molds of the patient's teeth. These impressions are used to create a personalized treatment plan.
Series of Aligners: Based on the treatment plan, a series of clear, custom-made aligners is fabricated. Each aligner is slightly different from the previous one, designed to gradually move the teeth into their desired positions.
Progressive Changes: Patients wear each set of aligners for about 1-2 weeks, typically 20-22 hours a day, removing them only for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene. As they progress through the series, the teeth gradually shift into their proper alignment.
Monitoring Progress: Patients visit their dentist or orthodontist periodically to ensure the treatment is progressing as planned. Adjustments may be made to the treatment plan if necessary.
