What are Duo Aligners?
Like other clear aligners, Duo Aligners are made out of a clear plastic. They’re used to straighten the teeth and adjust the alignment of the bite without the need for brackets and wires. Because Duo Aligners are manufactured in-house, you don’t have to worry about waiting to hear back from a separate laboratory to begin the treatment. You can also be sure that your aligners will be 100% designed by an orthodontic specialist fellowship trained in clear aligner therapy, not an algorithm or lab technician.
How Do They Work?
We’ll create a set of aligners for you based on impressions of your mouth. You’ll wear each aligner for a given amount of time – usually around two weeks each. It’s important to keep them in your mouth for around 20 to 22 hours every day to make the requisite changes. When the time comes to eat or brush your teeth, you can simply take the aligners out and store them in a secure container until you’re ready to put them back in again.
What are the Benefits?
- Our Duo Aligners are made of transparent materials that virtually disappear when worn. Most people won’t even realize that you’re wearing them.
- Each aligner is fully personalized to fit perfectly on your unique smile for a comfortable fit and beautiful results.
- Since clear aligners are removable, you can still enjoy all of your favorite foods and continue with your normal oral hygiene practices.
- It takes around 12 to 18 months to complete a treatment with clear aligners, which is less time than is usually required with braces.
As convenient as clear aligners often are, sometimes they are not enough on their own. Hybrid orthodontic treatments combine clear aligners with traditional braces to address more complicated concerns. Clear aligners will generally be the primary form of treatment, but there will be short periods where you need braces. This helps speed up the orthodontic process quite a bit and can also address malocclusions that are beyond the scope of aligners.
