Questions About AsoAligner (mouthpiece)

    How long do you use AsoAligner a day?

    Questions about correction

    AsoAligner needs to be worn more than 17 hours a day. AsoAligner works best when worn for as long as possible except when eating, drinking or during dental hygine.
    Since continuous force is required to move the teeth, if the time is short, the teeth will not move easily and the treatment will be prolonged.

    Can I eat with the mouthpiece on?

    Cold tea and water are fine. Avoid hot drinks (aligner might be deformed) or hard food (aligner might be broken). Always remove the aligner during meals.

  • Q

    How can I clean the mouthpiece?

    Wash with a toothbrush under running water. Please use a special mouthpiece cleaning product to remove strong odors.

    What should I do if I have cavities?

    AsoAligner is a system where trays are manufactured every one to three months, so it is possible to proceed with orthodontic treatment in parallel with dental caries treatment. Please consult with a dental health professional to assess your suitability.

  • Q

    I feel pain. Is this normal?

    Mouthpiece correction is often considered a simple and light treatment option. However, just like any orthodontic treatment, aligners work by moving your teeth. Although these physiological changes vary between individuals, this type of treatment is usually accompanied with some pain. The pain will usually decrease after a few days of wearing a new tray. Please consult your dental health professional immediately when you feel the pain is to uncomfortable.

Questions About orthodontic treatment

  • Q

    I’m thinking about orthodontic treatment. How should I decide which clinic to use?

    There is no general rule, but it’s good to keep in mind that each dentist has its own specialty, and there are of course orthodontic specialists.
    A dentist with specialized qualifications such as an orthodontist or any specialist should have acquired plenty of knowledge, skills, and experience throughout their carreers and various different studies. Of course, that alone does not determine everything, so please use this as just one criteria point. Orthodontic treatment is a long-term relationship and it’s important to build a relationship of trust so communication goes smoothly.

  • Q

    At what age can I start orthodnotic tratment?

    Teeth development can be generally categorized into 3 periods: baby teeth period, mixed dentition period and permanent dentition period.
    We offer a wide range of products for treatments from 3 to 70 years old. There are also doctors who specialize in particular periods.
    With advances in technology and research, orthodontic treatment can basically be started at the time you are interested in! The most important point is to always consult with a dental health professional first.

  • Q

    Are teeth extractions mandatory in orthodontic treatments?

    The simple answer is: it depends on the condition of your teeth and the treatment plan offered by your dental health professional. A good way to think about it is to imagine a sofa that fits only 4 people. If a fifth person tries to fit in, some people will have to move forward a little while others have to move backwards. All of them will not be able to neatly sit in line so to do so, one of them will need to stand up. The same happens to your teeth”!However, the dental health professional can also decide to “expand” the bench so that all 5 people can sit in line. That’s why it’s important to always check with your dental health professional what your treatment options are.

  • Q

    How long does orthodontic treatment take?

    It depends on the condition of your teeth and the treatment plan offered by your dental health professional. In principle, orthodontic treatment can take anywhere between 1-3 years.
    Partial orthodontics do not completely treat all issues, so the treatment period tends to be a little shorter.

  • Q

    I was given a retainer at the end of my treatment. Do I need it?

    he “retainer” is extremely important. Teeth moved by orthodontic treatment tend to want to return to their original position. The “retainer” prevents this from happening and it helps your teeth gradually settle in their new position. Make sure you carefully follow your dental health professional’s instructions on how to wear it.
