What Are Clear Aligners?
We’re sure you’ve heard about clear aligners. These kinds of aligners typically require the wearer to put them on for about 20-22 hours a day, and they’re changed out with new aligners trays about every 10 days.
Clear aligners are teeth straightening tool that helps its users straighten their teeth without painful, glaring braces. Clear aligners are more discrete and more comfortable than traditional teeth-straightening methods.
These aligners are a snug-fit but not painful. In fact, each aligner is custom-made for your teeth using our impression kit. Although, some users do report some initial discomfort when they first start wearing them.
Clear aligners are also removable, unlike braces. You should remove these aligners when you’re getting ready to eat or drink. However, you can drink water with these aligners.
The treatment with clear aligners last 4-6 months on average months depending on how out-of-line your teeth are at the beginning of treatment. Your treatment may also become longer if you aren’t wearing the liners often enough throughout the day.
Aligners can be cleaned by running them under tap water and brushing with a plain toothbrush as needed. You shouldn’t use any toothpaste.
Clear aligners can be worn while you’re playing musical instruments or performing normal daily activities. However, we don’t recommend wearing these aligners when you’re participating in high-impact sports activities.
Our clear aligners are revolutionary. However, some people find the upkeep of these aligners to be a bit much. If you find that normal clear aligners require too much maintenance and thought, we do have an alternative choice.
When do I need clear aligners?
Malocclusion is a case of teeth misalignment. It is when your upper and lower teeth do not properly meet, resulting in an improper bite. This can cause your teeth to be crooked or crowded.
There are various cases of malocclusion. Clear aligners are used to treat minor to moderate cases and some severe ones as well. Following are the reasons why you may need to get clear aligners:
- Overbite: When your upper front teeth are in front of your lower teeth.
- Underbite: When your lower front teeth protrude past your upper front teeth.
- Openbite: When your upper and lower teeth are positioned farther than each other. This results in them not meeting when the mouth closes.
- Diastema: When there are uneven gaps between your teeth. It can either be your front or any of your other teeth.
- You may need aligners in case your lower or upper jaw protrudes further resulting in a bad face shape.
What Are NightOnly Clear Aligners?
NightOnly Clear Aligners are built for convenience. We understand the frustration that many of our customers have when they have to wear normal clear aligners throughout the entire day and night. With NightOnly Clear Aligners, you don’t have to do this.
You only have to wear NightOnly Clear Aligners for about 8 to 10 hours each day. All you have to do is pop in the aligners before you go to bed and keep them on throughout the night.
If you aren’t in bed for 8 to 10 hours a day, we recommend adjusting your wear time to your schedule. You may have to start wearing your clear aligners after dinner or keep them on until you start your day in the morning. The schedule is flexible.
Just make sure that you’re following the recommended wear time, as our NightOnly Clear Aligners require continuous wear. If you don’t follow these instructions, you may notice that you aren’t getting the results you want.
Many customers love these NightOnly Clear Aligners because of the convenience that it gives them, especially throughout the day. With normal clear aligners, you have to take them out throughout the day as you prepare to eat or drink. With NightOnly Clear Aligners, you don’t need to do this because you won’t have them on at all during the day.
There is no interruption to your normal, daily routine.
What’s the Catch?
Many people think that NightOnly Clear Aligners are too good to be true. There must be a catch.
The biggest difference between the two aligners is that you may need to wear NightOnly Clear Aligners for a little longer since you’re only wearing these at night.
This also means that you may have to invest a little bit more money to enjoy the convenience during the day. If you’re wearing them longer, you’ll need to have more trays, which means that they cost a little more than normal aligners.
Other than time and cost, the only other worry that people have cited is the fact that your teeth are more likely to shift during the day. Since you aren’t wearing the aligners during the majority of the day, your teeth could start sliding while you’re going throughout your day.
If you’re willing to put in some extra time and money, NightOnly Clear Aligners could be the most convenient teeth-straitening option for you.
Am I a Candidate for NightOnly Clear Aligners?
NightOnly Clear Aligners are usually recommended for patients with mild to moderate crowding or spacing issues. If you feel that you fall into one of these categories, you should submit your impression kit and see if you can get started with your NightOnly Clear Aligners.
If you have a severe condition, you may not be eligible for NightOnly Clear Aligners. Our dental professionals will take a look at each case individually and let you know if you qualify for NightOnly Clear Aligners. If not, you can always opt to use our regular aligners.
Remember that these aligners work similarly. The largest difference is in how long you have to wear them. However, either choice is a great one for those who want to avoid painful braces.
Keep in mind that you may want to opt for our normal aligners if you’re straightening your teeth for an upcoming event. NightOnly Clear Aligners do have a longer treatment period, so traditional clear aligners could be the best option for an event that is happening in just a few months.
Whatever you choose, you can be confident that you’re making a good one with AlignerCo.
How Much Do NightOnly Clear Aligners Cost?
As we said, NightOnly Clear Aligners do cost more than traditional aligners.
Our traditional aligners cost up to 60% less than braces do. We offer several different plans so that there’s sure to be a plan to suit you. Each plan includes the impression kit, invisible aligners, and a retainer.
Our SmileAdvantage Plan costs $1285. This is a one-time payment plan that is great for those of you who’d rather pay all-at-once.
Our SmileFlex Easy Plan allows you to pay in instalments. This requires a downpayment of $310 with monthly payments of $200 a month for 12 months. This comes out to $1510 in total.
We offer two payments for a NightOnly Clear Aligners as well.
Our NightAdvantage Plan is a one-time payment of $1385. As you can see, this is $100 more than our traditional plan. Again, this is because of the extended treatment process due to only wearing the aligners at night.
Our NightFlex Easy Plan allows you to pay $330 as a down-payment. After that, you’d pay $220 each month for a total of 12 months. This comes to a total of $1650.
You can see that the NightOnly Clear Aligners are a little more expensive than the traditional clear aligners. However, this is reasonable for timing and convenience.
Some of our customers would rather start off with the impression kit to see if they want to continue with treatment or qualify for NightOnly Clear Aligners. We also have a deal for them.
If you’d rather start out with the impression kit, that costs $65 alone. This is a great starter deal for those of you who don’t want to lock yourself into payments before you start treatment or know what treatment is going to look like.
What Does the Treatment Process with NightOnly Clear Aligners Look Like?
When you get started working with our clear aligners, you’ll need to first use our impression kit to take moulds of your teeth. Our dental professionals will use these moulds to build your custom clear aligners.
Once you order your clear aligners, the impression kit should be shipped to you in three to four business days. All you have to do is follow the instructions in our impression kit to get started making your teeth impressions.
You’ll then ship those off to us. Once our facility receives them, we start crafting your Smile Projection. Your Smile Projection is a 2D plan of what your teeth will look like throughout treatment. We send these to you before we send off your aligners because we’d like you to approve our Smile Projection Plan.
We’ll send you your Smile Projection about 12 to 14 business days after we receive your impressions in our Lab. From there, you can approve the plan or ask us to make small adjustments before we can start work on the aligners.
Once approved, it’s time for us to send off your first set of aligners. This can take 17 to 21 business days to be created and shipped off. The entire creation process usually takes five to seven weeks unless there are any unforeseen circumstances.
What Do I Do When I Receive My Aligners?
Once you’ve received your aligners, you should be sure to read the insertion and removal instructions. You may have trouble inserting the aligners the first time that you wear them. This is normal as you need to get used to the process of putting them over your teeth, especially in the back.
If you’re still having trouble getting your aligners to fit, be sure to give us a call and let our team know. We’ll help you through the process and double-check if the fit is right.
You should also reach out to us if you’ve lost your aligners or they’ve become damaged. The longer you go without wearing them, the more your treatment could reverse. Let our specialists know as soon as you realize something has gone wrong.
If you’re wearing our traditional clear aligners, you may have to wear them for 6 to 11 months depending on how much you need to straighten your teeth. If you’re wearing our NightOnly Clear Aligners, you may need to wear them for 6-8 months to account for sliding during the day.
What Happens When I’m Done With Treatment?
When you’re done with your treatment with clear aligners, you should start wearing a retainer as directed by our dental experts. As mentioned in pricing, we do include this in our packages.
If you’re wearing our traditional clear aligners, you usually start by wearing the retainer for 20 to 22 hours a day for the 6 months following treatment. After this, you’ll wear the retainer at night for six months. If you don’t follow our expert’s instructions, you could risk reversing the progress made during treatment.
If you’re wearing our NightOnly Clear Aligners, you’ll simply continue wearing the retainer at night. The length of time will depend on what our dental experts recommend.
What Else Should I Keep in Mind When I’m Ordering My Clear
If you’re planning on ordering your traditional aligners or NightOnly Clear Aligners, you should make sure that you have thought about a few other things.
First off, we don’t recommend treating your teeth crowding or spacing with clear aligners unless you’re at least 14 years of age. If you are younger, you should make sure that you don’t need to have your wisdom teeth removed before starting treatment with clear aligners.
If you have any missing teeth, you can still use clear aligners. In fact, we can color in the gap so that there are no visible spots while you’re getting treatment.
If you have a bridge in your teeth, you should let our team know. We need to construct the liners to this as the bridge cannot move. You should also let us know if you’ve had a recent dental implant. You should consult your dentist before starting treatment as well.
