Are you looking for a way to reposition your teeth? Or do you like smile beautification? Both procedures are interrelated, and the dentist can achieve both of them by putting gentle but continuous pressure on the teeth to place them into a new position. 

Traditionally, metal braces were used for this purpose. Nowadays, the modern orthodontists of the most popular Dental Clinic in Jaipur can provide you with clear and transparent teeth aligners. But are you unsure about their materials, mode of operation, or efficacy? Read this article further to know more.

What Are Teeth Aligners?

Teeth aligners are trays made of unique material used to straighten the teeth, just like braces. They apply moderate and continuous force on the teeth and move them into the needed place. In the teen tears, you must have seen young people wear braces to reposition their teeth. The adults are also now going down the same route to have their smiles corrected by the most proficient dentists.

The Process 

The teeth aligners are custom-made for one user. First, the impression of the teeth is digitally captured and fed into special processing software. The software computes the future positions of the teeth. It then provides the optimum dimensions of the aligners to achieve the straightest teeth. With this data, the milling machine fabricates the set of teeth for you. For complete alignment, a person usually needs 25 – 40 sets on average. 

The patients prefer teeth aligners because they fit tightly over the teeth and, because of their removable nature, pose no problem on the eating and drinking of the wearer. After use for some time, they virtually become a body part. In addition, maximum teeth aligner users have not reported any speech problems. 

The Evolution Of Teeth Aligners

Teeth aligners have been marketed since 1998 with the brand name Invisalign. The manufacturer made the first version of this product from a thin, flexible thermoplastic material named SmartTrack. These dental devices were designed to make orthodontic treatment “less conspicuous.” Although these trays were not completely invisible, they fit tightly over the teeth and are much more noticeable than the wires and brackets of traditional metal braces. 

The manufacturer started to market an improved version of the product in 2010 with better efficacy because of its capacity to deliver improved force on the wearer’s teeth. You can find the most modern transparent braces in Jaipur at the best clinic for orthodontic treatment. 

What dental issues are corrected by teeth aligners?

Teeth aligners are used mainly in smile correction and teeth repositioning. However, they are also used in overcrowding, spacing, and minor and moderate bite issues. Teeth aligners can be used in the following problems:

  • Types of an overbite, underbite, and cross-bite issues.
  • Open bite
  • Crowded teeth
  • A gap in teeth.

Teeth aligners have been reported to treat arch problems in patients effectively. However, in severe bite issues, it is observed to have limited efficacy. 

Care While Using Aligners

Teeth aligners are more comfortable than metal braces but require specific steps for taking proper care. The experienced orthodontist of the best dental clinic will suggest particular guidelines, some of which are listed below:

  • The patient will have to wear the aligners for 20 – 22 hours a day.
  • The aligners will have to be changed after every one or two weeks.
  • The aligners will need to be removed while eating, flossing, and brushing. The patient should never wear the aligners, especially while consuming something hot. 
  • The aligners must be kept clean. It is better to brush them when the patient is undergoing their daily dental hygiene routine.
  • The patient must keep the aligners dirt-free at all times. It is better to store them in the container provided by the dentists of the most effective dental braces in Jaipur when it is not being used. 

The Difference With Traditional Metal Braces

Metal braces are the traditional methods used by the previous generation dentists to correct the patients’ smiles or position their teeth. While teeth aligners are equipped to do it also, for some issues, metal braces act better. Let us know about the differences between using teeth aligners and traditional metal braces, as follows:


Traditional Braces

Teeth Aligners


Easily noticeable

Not easily spotted



Removable – wearers can remove them while eating, brushing, and flossing.

Oral hygiene

May pose problems in daily healthy oral care

No problem in maintaining routine healthy oral hygiene practices


Can cause abrasion in the oral cavity

It fits snugly on the teeth

Duration of wearing

Longer than the clear aligners (vary from case to case)

It takes relatively less time than traditional braces (differ from case to case)

The patients will have to continue taking proper oral care even after the treatment is completed. 

The Efficacy Of Dental Aligners

Although dental aligners draw less attention to the wearer, their efficacy is not better than dental braces in all respects. Studies involving different teeth aligners are inconclusive due to small sample sizes, and traditional metal braces are considered more effective in serious bite issues. Moreover, the patient will have to visit the dentist every six months to ensure their setting and corrected smile remains intact. The dentist may prescribe retainers to continue the optimum placement of the teeth.

SMILE SPOILERS like improper alignment of teeth, spacing between teeth, broken teeth, old fillings, attrition or wearing of enamel of teeth, smoking stains, yellow teeth, black gums, protruding teeth, jaw size discrepancies, gummy smile, fluorosis etc can be corrected and mended using a host of treatments like braces, veneers, bleaching and depigmentation.

Technological advancements are slowly decreasing the need for unsightly braces. Invisible aligners like INVISALIGN have done away with fixed wires and made the treatment invisible. Aligners are removable, transparent, do not cause food lodging, easier to maintain and patient acceptance is also better. Wilkodontics can decrease the duration of alignment treatment to as short as three months. VENEERS are instant smile correction techniques to make your smile radiant with the shape and size to suit your facial structure.

Anti-ageing treatments – restoration of lower facial height lost due to loss of enamel. LASER tooth whitening procedures are long lasting.

Most cosmetic problems also indicate an underlying functional problem – corrections will offer a better quality of life, early detection in childhood can simplify treatment.

BAD BREATH AND BLEEDING GUMS indicate gum disease which will soon lead to tooth loss. It may be due to aging, diabetes, pregnancy or genetics.

Technological advancements like LASERS ensures faster healing, less bleeding. Microscopic Dentistry improves precision. Nowadays targeted treatments and growth factors from one’s own body are also used for rapid healing. Cell culture technology are the latest developments.

Gum disease is usually due to plaque and calculus accumulation around the teeth. If addressed early, the tooth can be saved. Delay in treatment will result in tooth fall.

Sensitivity is usually an early symptom of decay, gum recession, over-zealous brushing or hard clenching or grinding habit.

Technological advancement like LASER Desensitisation, Dental loupes assisted root coverage procedures, tooth coloured fillings can cure sensitivity and save the teeth.

Before blindly following what the advertiser in the television tells, it is mandatory to check for the underlying reason and treat the same. In gum recession covering of the exposed, sensitive part of the root by gum treatments is done. Ignoring the symptom or resorting to over the counter relief measures – almost always leads to tooth loss.

PAIN in the tooth or mouth is usually due to deep decay in the tooth, wisdom tooth eruption, food collection inside gum pockets, ulcers or cracked tooth. The dentist will examine you and may need to take an x-ray to check the spread of infection.

Technological advancements like apex locators, flexible rotary tools, laser root canal, microscope assisted dentistry, have reduced the duration of treatment and the discomfort involved. Precious Metal Crowns improve durability and ensure zero allergies.

Do not use over the counter medication to treat dental pain. Clove oil cannot stop the spread of infection. If the cause of the pain is found early, the tooth can be restored to normal function.
