How Do Clear Aligners Work?

Clear aligners work gradually to align your teeth, which means gentler treatment. Our clear aligners in Fredericksburg, VA include ClearCorrect and Invisalign.

Aligner therapy is gradual because you change your aligners every few weeks, allowing your teeth to move toward desired positions comfortably. As a result, you’ll notice your teeth shifting and straightening as you move through your supply.

ClearCorrect and Invisalign in Fredericksburg

To ensure candidacy for clear aligners, we first have you schedule a consultation with your dentist in Fredericksburg for an orthodontic evaluation. Dr. Mohamed Elnahass, DDS will talk to you at this appointment about what to expect during and after treatment. We also encourage your questions.

If your dentist feels you're a good candidate for clear orthodontics, we take molds of your teeth and send our results to the lab for aligner fabrication. When you come in to pick up your supply, your dentist provides a schedule, letting you know when to change your aligners for the next in the supply. You visit us only periodically so the dentist can oversee your progress.

At the end of treatment, we create a retainer to maintain your results.

So, clear aligners work if you follow your dentist’s schedule. And you should wear your aligners most of the time, removing them only to eat and clean your teeth. By adhering to the instructions, you can expect a predictable result.
