Q: HOW OFTEN SHOULD I WEAR MY ALIGNERS FOR?

A: 22 hours a day. You should only be taking them out to eat, brush, or floss.

Q: WILL MY TEETH HURT DURING THE TREATMENT?

A: You will likely experience some discomfort during the first few days of wearing your aligners. This is normal as it is part of the treatment plan. This discomfort means that your aligners are working as they gently move your teeth towards their final position. This soreness should gradually ease after the first few days wearing each new set of aligners.

Q: HOW LONG IS THE TYPICAL TREATMENT PROCESS?

A: The typical treatment length for Dentily aligners is around 6 months. Our Dentily customers need to change their aligners every 2 weeks. Some patients will receive slightly more or less aligners than other customers. This depends on the degree of teeth straightening required. You will be notified on length of treatment once you receive your 3D simulation video.

Q: CAN I CONSULT WITH A DENTILY ORTHODONTIST DURING MY TREATMENT?

A: Our Orthodontists are available to answer any questions or queries you may have during your treatment. They can be reached by email at info@dentily.co.uk or by calling 0161-989-0608.

Q: WILL THERE BE ANY VISITS TO AN ORTHODONTIST'S OFFICE DURING THE TREATMENT?

A: There are no visits to the orthodontist’s office during Dentily aligner treatment plan. From your first assessment, through to the final step of straightening your new smile, Dentily straightens your teeth the freedom of your own home! 

Q: WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY TREATMENT IS COMPLETE?

A: In order to protect your new smile we recommend investing in our custom-made Dentily retainers. Without these retainers, your teeth will naturally try to shift back to their original position over time.
