Before and after
How well does the aligner treatment work?
Generally speaking, the aligner treatment is considered a proven treatment method in orthodontics to correct slight to moderate malocclusions. Clear aligners have gained significant popularity for their convenience, discretion, and ability to provide fast results.
We have a very high success rate at bestsmile. In medicine, however, there is generally never a 100% guarantee.
If after treatment your end result does not match the predicted result shown on the treatment plan, you will receive further Aligners free of charge – until you are happy with the result.
Can I smoke with clear aligners?
You should take out your aligners when smoking. Otherwise you run a higher risk of them becoming discoloured (becoming brownish) or misshapen.
Do clear aligners cause pain?
When wearing aligners, you will notice pressure on your teeth. This is perfectly normal and means that your teeth are moving into the desired position. With each new aligner, the feeling of pressure decreases after 3–4 days.
If you experience pain while wearing your aligners, please contact your bestsmile practice immediately.
Can I eat and drink with clear aligners?
You should remove your aligners before eating and drinking alcohol, hot beverages such as coffee or tea and soft drinks. It is not necessary to remove your aligners to drink water.
As a general rule, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment as long as your remove your aligners beforehand.
However, we strongly advise against chewing gum during your treatment with aligners. Gum can stick to the aligners and damage them. Here you will find more information on what foods to avoid during aligner treatment.
Are there any known bad experiences with bestsmile or problems with clear aligners?
At bestsmile, we take pride in our high level of customer satisfaction, reflected in our impressive Google rating of 4.7 on average. Negative experiences and issues with clear aligners are rare and very individual. Possible reasons are:
Dissatisfaction with the medical staff
Treatment prognosis does not match the outcome
Pain during the course of treatment
Most factors are subjective. The fact that the treatment takes longer or the result does not match 100% with the predicted treatment plan can occur due to unforeseen aspects, such as hard bones, which can make successful tooth movement difficult.
However, if you are unhappy with the result, please inform your dentist so that we can find a solution together.
