about the aligners

what are toothsi aligners?

A new, easy and a painless way to align your teeth. They give you a new smile, straighten your teeth, resolve tooth gaps and a lot more.

how do the toothsi aligners work?

We create multiple sets for your upper and lower teeth. When you put on the aligner, it moves your teeth into the desired position. From here, they get to work.

why do I need aligners for both my upper and lower teeth if I only want to change one?

Your bite requires the support of both your upper and lower teeth. Only then does it settle perfectly. We have to consider crowding, open bite or gaps between teeth while deciding on a treatment plan. That’s why even if the problem persists only in the upper jaw, the lower jaw needs to be aligned accordingly. If we ignore the other half, the problem could escalate the issue concerning the positioning and bite of your teeth.
