Did you know that 29% of Americans notice a person’s teeth first? If you don’t have perfect pearly whites, then you might feel self-conscious whenever you’re interacting with others.
Because of this, you might have been interested and looking into teeth straightening options to fix the imperfections in your mouth. Traditional metal bracket braces might be too conspicuous for you, plus they’re inconvenient and painful.
Thankfully, there are other options available, such as our NightOnly Clear Aligners.
Are NightOnly Clear Aligners right for you? Read on to find out.
In this article, you’ll find out exactly what these clear aligners are and why they’re right for you!
What Are NightOnly Clear Aligners?
NightOnly Clear Aligners are see-through trays you wear on your teeth to correct their crookedness. These are made to fit exactly to your unique teeth, as you send in an impression of them to our lab (more on this later).
With your impression, we’ll make several aligners to gradually shift your teeth into better positions. These allow you to feel significantly less pain than you would with traditional metal braces.
As the name suggests, NightOnly Clear Aligners are worn only at night. More specifically, you only wear these clear aligners while you sleep, so you only have them on for about 8 to 10 hours a day. As you can see, these nighttime aligners are very convenient!
What’s the Difference Between NightOnly and Regular Invisible Aligners?
You may not have known this, but we have regular invisible aligners too! They’re similar in the fact that NightOnly and regular invisible aligners consist of multiple trays you have to wear throughout your treatment period.
However, there are slight differences between the two.
First of all, you wear regular trays all throughout the day while you only wear NightOnly trays at night. As a result, you wear regular invisible aligners for much longer; the recommended duration is 20 to 22 hours a day.
Because you don’t wear NightOnly trays for such long periods of time, this means the treatment time for them is a bit longer as well. While regular invisible aligners take around 4 to 6 months to complete treatment, it’ll take around 10 months to complete it for clear night braces.
Otherwise, the two teeth straightening options are very comparable in terms of the trays themselves.
What Are the Pros of Wearing NightOnly Clear Aligners?
As we’ve said above, our clear braces are much less painful than traditional metal bracket braces. Not only do those braces hurt when they’re put on and tightened, but they also cause pain when the brackets and wire cut into your cheeks. You can always place wax pieces over these things, but chances are, they’ll still catch your skin many times over before you’re done with treatment.
What are the other pros of wearing our NightOnly Clear Aligners? Read on to find out.
You might be concerned that you’re putting something in your mouth that might be toxic, especially since you’ll be wearing them for almost half a day, every day for around a year.
The good news is, they’re completely safe! Our aligners are made of BPA-free plastic, which means you won’t be placing harmful plastic on your skin every night. We’ve carefully chosen the material to be both safe and durable so you can straighten your teeth without braces in the most optimal way possible.
Invisible braces inherently have the benefit of convenience because they have the ability to be taken out whenever you want. Other options, like metal bracket braces, are permanent for the entire duration of treatment. But with our clear aligners, you can take them out when you want to eat or drink, or just want a break from having something over your teeth.
NightOnly Clear Aligners are even more convenient than normal clear aligners since you only need to wear them while you sleep. Even if you don’t sleep for the full 8 to 10 hours, you only need to wear them for a few waking hours, as opposed to the whole day with regular clear aligners.
Not only that, but you can straighten your teeth at home. No longer will you have to make multiple trips to the orthodontist to have your teeth looked at and your treatment method adjusted.
With both our types of invisible aligners, you can do teeth straightening at home. We’ll send you personalized kits and give you professional advice over the internet so you never have to leave the comfort of your house. As a result, you’ll save lots of time and money when you eliminate these annoying office visits.
When you take all the above into consideration, you won’t suffer any interruptions to your daily life. Even if you have a full schedule, all you need to do is just pop in your aligner in when you get home, then kick back and relax.
There’s Less Staining Involved
Because metal bracket braces are on your teeth 24/7, whatever you eat or drink has the potential to stain your teeth. You’ll either have to avoid certain food or drinks, or you’ll have to clean your teeth vigorously.
With NightOnly Clear Aligners, you won’t have the trays in while you ingest food or beverages. As a result, you won’t have to worry as much over staining prevention.
They Work Just as Regular Clear Aligners Do
If you’ve heard great things about our regular daytime clear aligners but just can’t commit to having them in for such a long period of time, then know that NightOnly Clear Aligners work just like they do! The only difference is that you wear them for a shorter period of time, so you’re able to reap the same benefits, just over a longer duration.
For some, this is worth it, as they won’t have to worry about teeth straightening as they go about their busy everyday lives.
What Are the Cons of Wearing NightOnly Clear Aligners?
All good things come with their own caveats, and our NightOnly Clear Aligner is no exception. It’s true that you’ll enjoy lots of pros when you choose this teeth-straightening method. However, there will be some cons.
Keep reading to find out what the cons are of wearing our nighttime aligners. You’ll find that the pros outweigh them by far!
The Treatment Time Is Longer
As we’ve said above, you only have to wear these aligners 8 to 10 hours a night. While that can be highly convenient, it does come with the drawback that your treatment time is a lot longer than it is with regular clear aligners.
This is because your teeth have less time to adjust to the trays each day.
You Might Not Get as Much Progress
Because you don’t have the clear aligners in for around half the day, this makes it more likely that your teeth will shift back into their original positions. At the very least, the progress you’ve made during the night might be minimalized when you don’t have your aligners in during the day.
However, if the crookedness of your teeth is very mild, then this shouldn’t matter too much. Any shifting of your teeth will be negligible and corrected for when you have your aligners in at night.
They’re More Expensive Than Daytime Clear Aligners
For regular clear aligners, we charge you a one-time payment of $1,145. On the other hand, NightOnly Clear Aligners will cost you a one-time payment of $1,345. You can find out more about payments in the next section.
The difference of $200 is due to the fact that treatment time will take longer and will most likely take more aligners as well.
How Much Do NightOnly Clear Aligners Cost?
When you get NightOnly Clear Aligners from us, they’ll cost just $1,345, like we’ve said earlier. You can choose to pay this all off in one go through our NightAdvantage plan so you don’t have to worry about any more payments in the future.
However, if you can’t afford to pay that amount all at once, don’t worry, as there are other choices available to you. For one, you can choose our NightFlex plan. With this option, you pay $125 a month for 12 months.
If that’s still too much for you, then there’s also our NightFlex Easy plan. You’ll have to initially pay $345 as a down payment, but your monthly payments will be reduced to $105 a month for 11 months. The total will be a bit higher at $1,500, but it’ll break down the payments into much more manageable chunks.
What’s great is no matter which plan you choose, you’ll get free shipping so long as you live in the Australia! Plus, we take all major forms of payment, which means you’ll have a myriad of choices when it comes to payment options.
Who’s a Good Candidate for NightOnly Clear Aligners?
Unfortunately, not everyone will be a good candidate for NightOnly Clear Aligners.
Like with the regular clear aligners, you need to have mild to moderate issues with your teeth. Our team of experts will carefully analyze the teeth impressions you send it to see if you’re a good candidate for NightOnly Clear Aligners. If not, then they might refer you to use the regular daytime ones.
So even if you’re not a good candidate for NightOnly Clear aligners, you still might still be able to benefit from our All-day clear aligners.
Otherwise, good candidates for this type of teeth straightening include people who admittedly don’t have good discipline. Daytime aligners require you to have them in for 20 to 22 hours, and if you don’t feel like you can force yourself to keep them in for that long, then NightOnly clear aligners might be optimal for you.
What Should I Know About NightOnly Clear Aligners?
You already know that you can put in and take out these aligners whenever you please. Plus, you can wear them when you go to bed. But what else should you know about them?
For one, we highly recommend that you take them out when you eat or drink anything, especially if they’re extremely hot or cold. This is because the extreme temperatures and pressure can damage the trays, meaning you’ll have to replace them if they break. If this happens, it’ll set your treatment back.
Also, you should only drink water when you have them in. While it’s true that there’s less staining associated with our clear aligners, it’ll still happen, so be safe and take out your aligners whenever you ingest anything.
How Can I Get NightOnly Clear Aligners?
To get NightOnly Clear Aligners, simply request one from us. We’ll then send you a dental impression kit, which you’ll send back so we can assess whether or not you’re a good candidate for this type of teeth straightening.
If we do determine you to be a good candidate, then our experts will come up with a personalized treatment plan. Then, we’ll send you the aligners straight to your home!
You can then wear these NightOnly Clear Aligners as instructed. Make sure you follow our instructions; don’t try to wear some aligners shorter or longer than we tell you to. Otherwise, you’ll risk your teeth not getting straight on the schedule we’ve set out for you.
