What happens if I break or lose a clear aligners?

If you break your aligners during your orthodontic treatment, inform your practitioner as soon as possible, so that he can tell you the procedure to follow. You will probably be asked to put the previous aligner back on to prevent your teeth from taking a bad trajectory while waiting to receive your new pair of transparent aligners.

What should I do if my new aligner does not fit my teeth well?

If you observe a shift when placing your new aligners compared to the current position of your teeth, know that this is completely normal. This shift is explained by the fact that your teeth need a little time to get used to the new position imposed on them. On the other hand, if fitting your new aligner proves to be impossible or too painful, contact your orthodontist without delay.

Can I smoke while wearing the aligners?

It is not advisable to smoke while wearing your invisible aligners, as smoking tends to yellow the aligners, and therefore alter their transparency.

What are the dietary restrictions?

In general, there are no dietary constraints during orthodontic treatment. You can eat absolutely anything you want, provided you remove your trays before each meal. Moreover, a hygiene kit as well as transport boxes are given to each patient in order to prolong this unique and exceptional experience wherever you are.

How do I clean my aligners?

Rinse your aligners with water and clean them with your toothbrush. It helps to clean your clear aligners every time you take them out. It is also not recommended to use toothpaste, as this could leave traces and make your aligners less transparent, and therefore more visible.
