Mail Order Braces Potential Issues vs. Dentist Guided

The potential issues of mail order braces like Smile Direct Club or Candid vary all over along with their results of success. Since there is no dentist or orthodontist inspecting your alignment and progress for each phase, there are many variables that cause the mail order braces to fail.

Some of the issues that happen with mail order braces are:

  •  Receding gums, exposing lower sensitive areas of teeth
  • Incorrect alignments
  • Varying results
  • Corrections don’t settle properly

This is why we highly recommend that you get your clear aligner braces, Invisalign or any orthodontics done under supervision of a trained dental professional.

Did you know:

An interesting fact about clear aligner braces is that they were originally invented by an adult orthodontic patient who was looking for a more convenient and discreet alternative to traditional braces.

In the late 1990s, Zia Chishti, was dissatisfied with the orthodontic treatment options available to him as an adult. After graduating from Stanford University, he wanted a solution that would straighten his teeth effectively without the noticeable appearance of metal braces. Inspired by the concept of using sequential plastic aligners, Chishti and his business partner Kelsey Wirth founded Align Technology.

Questions & Answers About Invisible Clear Aligner Braces

Known to Some Under The Clear Braces Brand Invisalign

How do clear aligner braces work?

Clear aligner braces work by using a series of custom-made, transparent plastic aligners to gradually and gently move your teeth into their desired positions. Each aligner is worn for a specific period before moving on to the next one, bringing you closer to your dream smile.

Are clear aligners comfortable to wear?

Absolutely! Clear aligners are designed to be comfortable and smooth, ensuring a pleasant experience throughout your treatment journey. There are no metal wires or brackets to worry about, making them a cozy fit for your lifestyle.

Can I remove the aligners when eating or for special occasions?

Yes! One of the fantastic benefits of clear aligners is that they are removable. You can take them out when eating, brushing, or for those special moments. Just remember to wear them for the recommended hours daily to achieve the best results.

How long does the treatment process usually take?

The treatment duration varies depending on individual needs, but typically, clear aligner therapy lasts anywhere from several months to around two years. Rest assured, we’ll work together to create a personalized plan that suits your unique smile goals.

Will clear aligners affect my speech?

While you may experience a slight adjustment period, most patients find that any speech changes are temporary and minimal. Your mouth will adapt quickly to the aligners, and you’ll be speaking as naturally as ever in no time.

Are clear aligners suitable for all teeth alignment issues?

Clear aligner braces can effectively address a wide range of common teeth alignment issues, such as crowding, spacing, misalignment, and gaps. However, for more complex cases, our orthodontic experts will evaluate your needs and suggest the best treatment approach.

How do I maintain and clean my clear aligners?
  1. Keeping your aligners clean is easy! Simply rinse them with lukewarm water or use a gentle cleanser to maintain their clarity and hygiene. Remember to brush and floss your teeth before putting the aligners back in for a sparkling smile.
