Aligner Insertion

  • Make sure you have the proper Aligner-the upper for your top teeth and the lower for your bottom teeth.
  • To help avoid confusion, each Aligner package contains a “U” for upper and “L” for lower, followed by the stage number. (Example U 2 of 10)
  • When inserting each Aligner, gently push the Aligners over your front teeth.  Then apply equal pressure, using your fingertips, to the tops of your left and right molars until Aligner snaps into place. 
  • Do not bite your Aligners into position. This may damage them.  Note: If you experience sharp pain or significant discomfort, discontinue use of the Aligners and contact your doctor.
