Introduction: What are Clear Aligners?

While we will cover if clear aligners can pull teeth down, firstly what are clear aligners? Clear aligners are a type of orthodontic device that you wear on your teeth. They look like a clear plastic retainer and they use pressure to gradually move or shift your teeth into the right position over time.

Clear aligners are also known as “invisible braces” because they cannot be seen when you talk, smile or laugh. Unlike traditional braces, which use brackets and wires to make corrections, clear aligners can be removed anytime you want.

The first clear aligner was designed by Dr. Jerry Karbiner in 1971 and he patented his invention in 1974. He was inspired by his daughter’s tooth alignment issues after she had her wisdom teeth removed and tried to design something that could help her with temporary issues until her permanent teeth were ready.

Are Clear Aligners Safe?

Clear aligners are safe for a number of reasons, the most important being that they do not cause any type of pain. They are also designed to be comfortable and easy to wear so that you can have the perfect smile without the fuss of metal braces. However, clear aligners should not be used by people who have active periodontal disease or gum disease.

Can Clear Aligners Pull Teeth Down

So, can clear aligners pull teeth down? There is evidence that aligners can help to push teeth down as they move them over time, however, in full transparency, we should mention not as much as traditional braces. Braces and aligners both use forces to move teeth, but they work on different types of tooth movement. Braces are better than aligners in cases where a tooth needs to be rotated or pulled down – whereas clear aligners are better at widening, rounding out, or expanding the smile.
