What are uLab Clear Aligners?

uLab clear aligners are custom-made, virtually invisible orthodontic devices designed to straighten teeth through a series of finely calibrated trays. They offer a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. Created using state-of-the-art 3D printing technology, uLab aligners are tailored to fit comfortably over your teeth while gradually shifting them into their correct position. Suitable for teens and adults, these aligners are crafted to provide a personalized treatment plan that aligns with each patient’s unique dental needs.

uLab Aligner Treatment Process

  • Consultation and Planning: The journey to a straighter smile begins with a consultation at SuperSmile Orthodontics. During this visit, Dr. Brian Chamberlain conducts a thorough examination of your teeth and may use digital scans or traditional impressions. These are sent to uLab, where advanced software plans out the movement of your teeth in stages.
  • Customization: Based on the initial assessment, uLab designs a series of clear aligners tailored specifically for your dental structure. Each aligner makes slight adjustments to the position of your teeth, following the planned sequence to gradually achieve the desired alignment.
  • Treatment: You will wear each set of aligners for about one to two weeks before moving on to the next set in the series. The exact duration and number of aligners vary depending on your specific treatment plan. Regular checkups with our orthodontist ensure the treatment is progressing as expected and adjustments are made if necessary.
  • Completion and Retention: Once the treatment phase is complete, it is important to maintain the results. Our orthodontist will provide retainers to ensure your teeth stay in place and remain aligned.

uLab Clear Aligners FAQ

How long does the treatment with uLab clear aligners take?

The duration of the treatment varies depending on the individual case and the complexity of the teeth alignment needed. On average, treatments can last anywhere from six months to two years.

Are uLab clear aligners painful?

Most patients experience some discomfort, particularly in the first few days after switching to a new aligner in the series. This discomfort is typically described as pressure and is a sign that the aligners are working as they should.

How often do I need to wear my aligners?

uLab clear aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results. They should only be removed for eating, drinking anything other than water and for brushing and flossing your teeth.

Can I see what my teeth will look like after treatment?

Yes, during your initial consultation and planning stage, the 3D planning technology used by uLab allows our orthodontist to show you a preview of what your teeth will look like post-treatment.

How do I take care of my uLab clear aligners?

uLab clear aligners should be cleaned daily. Rinse them under lukewarm water and brush them gently with a toothbrush and toothpaste. Avoid hot water as it could warp the aligners. Additionally, keep wearing your previous aligner if you lose one until you can get a replacement.
