What is Clear Aligners? The Benefits of Clear Aligners for Children Who Need Orthodontics
If your child needs orthodontic treatment, your mind will likely go to a mouth full of traditional metal braces. Your child may not like the idea of having to endure months or years of treatment with braces on their teeth, especially since traditional braces require diligent cleaning. Orthodontic treatment is important, however, so you and your child shouldn’t let the difficulties of traditional braces stand in the way of treatment. Instead, you may want to consider Clear Aligner for children.
How Does It Work?
your child will wear plastic aligners that slowly shift their teeth into the right place. The aligners are custom made to fit your child’s teeth, and they’ll apply pressure to the problem spots to move the teeth into position. Clear retainers can move your child’s teeth vertically and horizontally, and they can even rotate teeth if needed.
Your child’s dentist will create a customized treatment plan, which generally includes getting a new Clear aligner every few weeks. The benefits of Clear Aligners extend to almost all orthodontic issues, from mild to complex repositioning of the teeth.

If your child gets treated with traditional braces, they have to endure having them on their teeth until the end of their treatment. your child only has to wear the aligner for 20 to 22 hours per day. This gives them the freedom to take out their aligners while they eat, floss, and brush their teeth.
Many children with traditional braces or even ceramic braces lack the patience and dexterity to properly clean all of the nooks and crannies. This can lead to tooth decay and discoloration. But The aligner can be cleaned with the official cleaning kit or simply brushed and rinsed with lukewarm water.
