Alignerco offers two options, All Day Invisible Aligners or NightOnly Clear Aligners. The overall treatment time for its daytime aligners, which are worn 20 to 22 hours a day, is four to six months, while the treatment time for Alignerco’s nighttime aligners, which are worn only night for eight to 10 hours, is six to eight months.
Both types of aligners can straighten teeth and correct anatomical misalignments or issues like overbite, underbite, crossbite, tooth crowding, and tooth spacing, according to the company. They can also fill moderate to severe gaps between teeth, but this varies from case to case, the company says.
You may feel slight discomfort with your first set of aligners, which are designed to put pressure on your teeth. You will receive a total of eight aligners with the day or night plan which should be worn for 10 days each.
Below we outline the steps involved in the Alignerco treatment plan.
To find out if you are a good candidate for Alignerco’s Invisible Aligner System, you can complete their free online dental assessment. Questions asked include: “What word would you use to describe your teeth: crowding, spacing, protrusion?” How serious is the problem – mild, moderate, severe? Do you have dental implants? Have you ever worn braces or other invisible aligners? »
The printing kit
To get started with Alignerco, you will use the dental impression kit to make molds of your upper and lower teeth. Kit includes practice putty, impression trays and hardware, cheek retractor, gloves, impression guide, and prepaid shipping label. If you need help, you can schedule a free one-on-one session with one of Alignerco’s dentists by contacting customer service, the company says. Mail the kit to the company for expert review. It should be noted that after receiving your impressions, if Alignerco’s experts believe that you are not a good candidate for aligner treatment, the company will reimburse you in full for the cost of the impression kit (49. $99).
Smile Projection Plan
You will receive a smile projection plan approximately two weeks after receiving your impression kit, developed under the supervision of dentists. This 3D treatment plan proposal will give you an idea of what your smile will look like after the treatment. You’ll receive before and after photos, and if you like what you see, you can go ahead and approve the plan or make changes. Once you do, you will receive your first set of aligners in approximately three weeks.
It should be noted that while a customer service representative has confirmed that a dentist will oversee an individual session if needed, the extent to which a dentist is actually involved in your treatment plan is unclear. And even if your dentist will supervise your case, you will not be in direct contact with him. Instead, a “Smile Team Member” will act as a liaison between you and your regular dentist.
Your aligners will come with personalized instructions. If you choose daytime aligners, you will need to wear them for 20-22 hours for the first six months, then switch to night-only wear for the next six months. If you purchase the night treatment plan, your aligners should be worn for eight to 10 hours each night for six to eight months.
