Why clear aligners fail?
Clear Aligners are very popular in the market. They are the clear, comfortable aligners that are made from the same material as your teeth. These aligners are made up of a polymer which is used to retain the shape of the teeth. The polymer is very strong and tough which is why it is widely used. Clear aligners can be removed in a single visit, and you won’t have to worry about getting a retainer in case you have to take it out.
However, many people experience problems while wearing clear aligners. There are many reasons why clear aligners fail and people often wonder why.
The first reason why clear aligners fail is that they can’t stop the tooth movement. If you don’t use clear aligners properly, your teeth can move without your knowledge. This is because you can’t control the movement of your teeth. When you wear clear aligners, your teeth will start moving towards their final position. This is the reason why your teeth will feel uncomfortable in the beginning, but they will get used to it. After a while, your teeth will get used to the aligners. However, this will take a few weeks.
Wear and tear
Another reason why clear aligners fail is that they are not durable. You will have to wear them for a few months before they become strong. The clear aligners are very fragile. They can easily break if you wear them for a long time. In addition, you will have to use care when you are not wearing them. If you leave them for a few days, they can get damaged.
There are other causes of clear aligner failure. For instance, if you don’t have enough saliva in your mouth, you will struggle to eat and drink properly. In addition, you can’t chew food properly. As a result, your teeth will start to fall out of place. Furthermore, your tongue might get stuck.
I know many people who are suffering from the mentioned problems. They have tried clear aligners but have failed. They have been told that they have to wait a few weeks or even months before they can wear them. So, if you are facing these issues, then you need to change your lifestyle and try to find some solutions.
If you don’t want to wait a long time, then you need to go for the traditional braces. In this case, you will have to wait for a couple of years to get your smile back.
