The Treatment Process



During your initial consultation, we'll evaluate your smile and discuss your treatment goals. If clear aligners are the right option for you, we'll take digital impressions of your teeth to create your custom aligner trays.


Aligner Pick-Up

Once your aligners are ready, you'll begin wearing them according to your treatment plan. You'll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before switching to the next set in the series.



Throughout your treatment, we'll monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to ensure your teeth are moving according to plan. Most patients achieve their desired results within 6-18 months, depending on the severity of their case.

Frequently Asked Questions


How often do I need to wear my clear aligners?

For optimal results, we recommend wearing your clear aligners for 20-22 hours per day, removing them only for eating, drinking anything except water, brushing, and flossing.

How do I care for my clear aligners?

Caring for your clear aligners is simple and straightforward. Here are some tips to keep them in great condition:

  • Regular Cleaning: Rinse your aligners with lukewarm water every time you remove them, especially before putting them back in your mouth. This helps to remove saliva and plaque.
  • Brushing: Brush your aligners gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a mild, clear antibacterial soap. Avoid using toothpaste as it may be abrasive and cause scratching.
  • Soaking: Soak your aligners daily in a cleaner or a specialized cleaning solution designed for clear aligners. This helps to sanitize them and remove any buildup.
  • Avoid Staining: Minimize exposure to foods and drinks that may stain your aligners, such as coffee, tea, wine, and strongly colored foods like berries. Take them out before consuming anything except water.
  • Keep Them Safe: When not in your mouth, store your aligners in their case to prevent loss or damage.
  • Regular Checkups: Attend your scheduled checkup appointments at O’Shea Dentistry to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned and to address any concerns or adjustments needed.

Can I eat and drink with clear aligners?

It's best to remove your clear aligners before eating or drinking anything other than water to prevent staining or damage to the aligner trays.
