Tooth Aligners have the look and feel of Hawley retainers, but minor tooth movement can be built into the fabrication of the appliances. With patient's corporation wearing tooth aligners full time except eating and tooth brushing, minor tooth movement can be accomplished gradually. This is a great solution for patients with fairly straight teeth that only needing a minor correction.
Aligners have the look and feel of clear retainers, but built into them is a tooth correction so they can gradually move the teeth into alignment. What Florida Orthodontic Institute will do is make you a number of aligners, each one designated to be worn for a certain amount of time before moving on to the next one in the series. Each aligner will initially feel tight when first put on, but as you wear them they become more comfortable because your teeth are moving, correcting your alignment. This is a great solution for patients with fairly straight teeth that only needing a minor correction.
