Our surgery has been working with the Aligner therapy since 2001. Aligners are thin, transparent mouthguards, which can be worn or removed at your own discretion.
The aligners are virtually undetectable whilst speaking and laughing, and can be removed at mealtimes. A whole series of computer-produced aligners are generated, as the aligners themselves are only capable of a fraction of a millimetre tooth movement - a part of an ongoing process.
Each aligner is worn for two weeks and is then replaced by its successor, thus gently moving the teeth towards the final position.
