What is Clear Aligners treatment?
Clear Aligners treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners for about a year of treatment that gradually straightens your teeth instead of metal brackets and wires. And it has none of the restrictions that come with metal braces. Each set of alignment trays are replaced with a new set when worn for about two weeks. With every replacement, you are one step closer to have straight teeth.
We at Dentalkrafts are one of the largest providers of Clear Aligners in the region. We have a long history of Invisalign procedures where we helped many patients achieve the smiles they have always dreamt of having with these subtle, clear aligners. Using our high-tech iTero digital scanner we show you a preview of your possible treatment results with Invisalign.

With our iTero digital scanner, we can show you a preview of your possible treatment results with Invisalign and you will notice the dramatic difference before even starting.
Why should I prefer Clear Aligners over braces or wires?
Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible and transparent. It may not evident to people you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break, sending you to your dentist for an emergency visit.
Can both teenagers and adults be treated with Clear Aligners?
Yes. However, the aligners for teenagers and adults are different. The aligners used in teens have a tiny blue dot on the back and the color of the dot changes from blue to clear the more the teen wears his or her aligners. Clear Aligners made for adults don’t have a dot. And secondly the number of aligners a teen receive is more than the number that an adult receives because teenagers are generally more active and they are sometimes irresponsible in taking care of their aligners as compared to adults.
How long does treatment take with Clear Aligners?
Just like braces, the length of the treatment varies with the complexity of the case. Most patients begin to see results after the first few weeks. On average, it takes around one year to complete your Invisalign treatment.
Does Clear Aligners hurt?
No, Clear Aligners isn’t painful. But on the first day that you use each set of Clear Aligners, you may experience some discomfort as it happens with other traditional orthodontic treatments because the aligner is gently moving your teeth. This discomfort subsides within a day and whenever you wear a new Invisalign aligner you will experience some degree of discomfort.
