Can Aligners Damage Teeth: Oral Care During Teeth Alignment 

“I am thinking about getting aligners but I’m afraid it might damage my teeth.”

“Can aligners damage my teeth?” 

This is one of the most frequent questions we get from our new patients during their initial consultation. So, let’s be clear once and for all and talk about what really happens during your teeth alignment treatment. 

Dealing with Crooked or Misaligned Teeth is NOT Fun at All! 

For most people, dealing with crowded, crooked, or misaligned teeth is never easy. These oral problems can greatly affect the quality of life. For example, people with misaligned teeth usually experience discomfort while eating or chewing their food. 

In addition, a lot of people today, particularly teenagers, feel self-conscious about having crooked teeth. Most of them are even afraid to smile or avoid social interactions. This lack of confidence may also impact their mental wellness. 

Other health issues related to crooked or misaligned teeth include the following: 

  • Periodontal disease (tooth decay and gum disease)
  • Chewing or digestion problems
  • Speech difficulties 
  • Potential wear and tear
  • Self-esteem 

Dental Aligners & Proper Teeth Alignment 

Teeth alignment without braces? Is that possible? 

Yes! With ALINA, teeth alignment without braces is possible. You can expect less pain and fewer dental visits. 

ALINA specializes in aesthetics and cosmetic dentistry. We design and manufacture clear aligners that will bring out your beautiful smile.

Through the years, our team has never stopped innovating our methods to elevate our products and services. We use the most advanced technology to provide our patients with quality invisible braces. 

How it works

Aligners work by putting pressure on your teeth, which slowly improves the alignment of your teeth. During the treatment, the bone under your teeth slowly changes shape. The steps involved in your treatment will depend on the types of aligners you choose. 

So, here’s the usual process when you decide to get dental aligners from ALINA: 

Step 1: Booking an Appointment or Consultation 

Booking an appointment or consultation is easy. You can do this online or via phone call. We conduct online consultations– so, there’s no need to travel! And since time is always an issue for most patients, our dental team can work around your schedule. This means you can choose your time slot for your online consultation! 

What happens here?

During the online consultation, our dentists will just ask a few questions to know more about you and your condition. They will focus more on your concerns and desired goals. 

What to expect:

Here are some of the questions you can expect them to ask you:

  • Are you experiencing discomfort or pain when you chew or eat food? 
  • Do you have dental fillings, crowns, or veneers? 
  • Are you dealing with any dental problems? 
  • Did you have oral surgeries before? 

The objective here is to assess your condition and determine your goals. Our dental team will also help you set realistic expectations during the initial consultation phase. This includes the timeline for your teeth trainer alignment treatment. 

Step 2: Dental Scanning 

After the online consultation, we can now schedule a scan appointment. Again, there’s no need for dental visits. Instead, our dental team will come to you to perform the procedure for you, which should only take a few minutes. 

What happens here? 

Our dental experts use advanced dental imaging devices to get accurate measurements of your mouth and teeth. At this point, our dentist also creates a detailed dental impression for your aligners. 

What to expect:

  • Quick and simple procedure 
  • No pain or discomfort when getting measurements 
  • Follow-up instructions from ALINA’s dental experts 

Step 3: Designing & Manufacturing 

The next step is to design and create your aligners based on the impressions provided by the dentist. 

What happens here?

Our certified dental technicians use state-of-the-art cosmetic dental tools to create quality aligners only for you. In addition, our dental team also conducts quality checks to ensure proper teeth alignment. 

What to expect:

  • Quality materials 
  • Custom-fit
  • Comfort 

Step 4: Delivered Right to your Doorstep! 

For your safety, comfort, and convenience, we will also deliver your aligners right at your doorstep! Our team will also give you some instructions to ensure correct teeth alignment. 

What to expect:

Since your teeth move or change positions, expect to get a new set of aligners every month until you complete the treatment. Yes, you will also receive them right at your doorstep! 

Can Dental Aligners Really Damage Your Teeth? 

Going back to the question, the most straightforward answer is yes. Dental aligners can possibly damage your teeth through malpractice or mistreatment. That’s why it’s important to choose a reputable dental clinic or virtual dentist, especially if you’re considering at-home aligners. 

In addition, be sure to follow your dentist’s instructions to avoid future problems. Here at ALINA, our dental team will guide you every step of the way. We will consistently monitor your progress to make sure you’re in the right direction. 

Oral Care Tips During the Treatment

  • Keep in mind that you need to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours daily. 
  • Since invisible braces from ALINA are completely removable, proper brushing or flossing should be easy. 
  • Always remove your aligners before you eat. 
  • Avoid drinking dark beverages while wearing your clear aligners. 
  • Enjoy your aligners! One of the perks of choosing ALINA’s invisible braces is there are no food restrictions! You can simply remove your aligners and eat whatever you want!
