about the aligners

what are makeO toothsi clear aligners?

they are clear plastic trays that are 3D printed as per the shape of your mouth that help in fixing various teeth misalignment issues. the best thing about invisible aligners is that they give you the smile you’ve always desired, without the pain, inconvenience and food restrictions of metal braces. these clear aligners are the best alternative to traditional braces for treating orthodontic issues like gaps in teeth, overcrowded teeth, crossbite, underbite, open bite, and forwardly-placed teeth.

how do the makeO toothsi clear aligners work?

makeO toothsi clear aligners are made to fit your teeth like a glove. they work by applying gentle pressure to your teeth to move them into the correct position to give you the smile you wish for. this pressure is applied over weeks, which is why users need to wear their aligners for 22 hours a day to see drastic results!

why do I need aligners for both my upper and lower teeth if I only want to change one?

for your smile makeOver to be completed efficiently, your bite would require the support of both your upper and lower teeth. we consider teeth crowding, open bites or gaps between teeth while deciding on a treatment plan. that’s why even if the problem persists only in the upper jaw, the lower jaw needs to be aligned accordingly. if we ignore the other half, the problem could escalate the issue concerning the positioning and bite of your teeth.

what are the benefits of clear aligners?

unlike braces, clear aligners give you the following benefits:

  • they are almost invisible to the naked eye so you don’t ever have to be self-conscious about your smile
  • these teeth aligners don’t cause any pain. you might face minimal discomfort due to some pressure.
  • our clear aligners are removable so it's easy to maintain oral hygiene
  • makeO toothsi clear aligners are made from USFDA approved superior quality plastic which makes them extremely comfortable to wear for long hours
  • they are very effective at resolving misalignment issues and can work faster on minor corrections than braces too.
