Clear Aligners

Clear Aligners in Winnipeg

Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing; and you can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth; and there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions.

Clear aligners are an alternative to traditional metal braces. They are made from a hard plastic that is designed from 3-dimensional virtual impressions of your mouth. In place, these aligners are practically invisible against your teeth. They are also removable. However, for the best results, they should be worn for 20 to 22 hours every day, and should only be taken out to eat or brush and floss your teeth.

What are Clear Aligners?

A modern take on traditional braces, the Clear Aligners system will straighten your teeth, helping you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted, in a nearly invisible way. Dr. Dumore uses advanced 3D imaging to keep an accurate view of your teeth in their current position, and he can then create a model of the desired end result.

With a Clear Aligners treatment plan created, he can then order a series of custom, clear aligners designed to slowly shift your teeth to their final position.

Once your aligners are ready, the patient will wear each aligner in the series for about two weeks, or as prescribed by Dr. Dumore, and then replace the aligner with the next one in the series.

Your Clear Aligners treatment time will be determined by Dr. Dumore based on your specific needs.

How do Clear Aligners work?

Clear aligners consist of a series of aligners. You are meant to wear each aligner for two weeks at a time, and the next aligner is slightly different from the one before it. The hard plastic of the aligners puts pressure on your teeth. This, in turn, puts pressure on your periodontal ligaments (the ligaments that hold your teeth in place). This pressure forces your ligaments to widen. The aligners work to guide your teeth into their proper positions.

Your treatment time using clear aligners will vary based on your specific situation. Typically, treatment lasts between 9 and 15 months. Most patients see results in less than a year. In rare cases, treatment may last up to 2 years. Depending on your needs, you may go through anywhere from 18 to 30 sets of aligners.

If your smile, and oral health, have been affected by crooked teeth, but you want to avoid traditional metal braces, you may be eligible for clear aligners.
