Clear Aligners tips

Initially, it might not take more than 24 hours for you to get adjusted to Clear Aligners. As you succeed through Clear Aligners treatment, you may need to change your trays periodically. This is necessary to be done every three weeks and under the guidance of your dentist.

Whenever you choose to upgrade to a new set of aligners, some discomfort is obvious. To reduce the tenderness risk, you may try switching your trays out just before bedtime. Because most of the discomfort occurs during the first few hours of using them.

Moreover, be sure to store your trays properly when you are not using them. Place them in a hard and protective case that would keep them away from extreme heat. This would even prevent them from warping and also make your aligners more comfort-friendly to wear.
