Your dentist will create a unique, digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. From there, the clear aligners are created to conform to your teeth. They are designed to apply the right amount of pressure to gradually guide your teeth into place. Many patients like that clear aligners can be removed for short periods of time, such as to eat and drink, brush and floss, or attend special occasions.
