Smilers® aligners are designed to correct dental malpositions in order to restore a harmonious and functional alignment for teenagers and adults, and can be used on permanent teeth. Some people will have permanent teeth from the age of 12 years old.
Is the Smilers® orthodontic treatment right for you?
- In most cases, the answer is yes. The Smilers® orthodontic treatment treats a wide range of teeth realignment cases, from minor cases that involve filling a gap between two teeth (diastema) or more complex cases. What’s more, we are continually innovating to broaden this range and obtain results that are even closer to your expectations.
- In many cases, in order to speed up the movement of a tooth, your dentist or orthodontist may add attachments to the teeth. These discrete tooth-coloured ridges make the retainer more effective in dealing with the more complicated parts of the treatment.
- Elastics, mini-screws and chains may be necessary
- The use of a Smilers® orthodontic retainer may also be considered before doing certain dental treatments (e.g. fitting implants)
Here are some of the common cases that dentists and orthodontists can treat with Smilers® clear aligners* while complying with the instructions for wearing aligners.
*Consult your dentist/orthodontist who will decide on the most appropriate treatment.
