Clear Aligners FAQ

Do Teeth Aligners Work For Adults?

The short answer is – it depends. Like all patients, you must wear your aligners as provisioned by Dr. Laster. So long as you wear your aligner for 20-22 hours a day and trade out your trays as often as noted, you will begin to see your teeth shift into place.

Are Clear Aligners Bad For Your Teeth?

As long as you keep your aligner clean and ensure you brush before putting them on each time, aligners are perfectly safe and healthy for adults looking to straighten their teeth.

This depends on the patient and is case by case. If you’re wondering what treatment is right for you, go ahead and have a no-cost consultation!
