Not sure what Active Aligners are?
Think clear braces.
Prescribed by your dental professional, Active Aligners are clear aligners that have been developed specifically for aligning your teeth in a predictable, smooth and comfortable manner. Instead of metal brackets, wires or screws, you’ll be wearing a clear, high quality plastic material to achieve your desired results.
Clear aligners work on basic orthodontic principles. They are used for the correction of crooked teeth, gaps or rotation, while achieving the desired results in an organised and planned fashion.
These customised trays are transparent and move the tooth in the desired direction. This is achieved through wearing a series of Active Aligners, each for 22 hours a day, 1 to 2 weeks at a time (one stage), which move the teeth per stage until their optimal alignment has been reached.
With an average treatment of 6 months to a new confident smile, it's no wonder why more and more people are turning to Active Aligners as their clear choice for clear braces.
