Each aligner has minimal movement programmed into it, to gently move the teeth toward their final, desired position.
Each aligner is meant to be worn for two weeks, and to be taken out when eating, or drinking anything other than room temperature water.
Because it is made of plastic, an aligner does not like anything hot or hard, because they could be damaged or cracked. They can also be discolored by colored drinks such as wine, or even cigarette smoke.
Therefore, wearing aligners might be a great time for you to cut down on snacks, and even cigarettes. In fact, many smokers may even have an easier time quitting. Many of our customers have reported that their SnapCorrect aligner journey helped them on their way to a truly healthier smile and a truly healthier them!
