Aligners are produced in dental laboratory with the highest precision and are customized to press the teeth that you want to correct.
You will have to wear aligners for about 22 hours a day and remove them only for eating and brushing teeth. Regular visits to dentist are required to check the progress. After orthodontic treatment, you may be prescribed a retainer to fix the achieved result.
