Your health and the long-term viability of your new smile are important to us. Certain medications or underlying conditions can adversely affect the progress or outcome of aligner treatment. Moving teeth means that the bones and tissues surrounding your teeth are affected during movement. Your bone and tissue must fill in and your dental roots must remain healthy for your teeth to move properly to their new location. Some medications or medical issues can make it more difficult to achieve these goals. If you take medications, you should be sure to ask your personal dentist and physician about aligner treatment, and be sure to inform us on your Consent to Treat form, so our dentists and orthodontist know as well. We will inform you if we believe your medications may adversely affect your treatment or make you not a good candidate for aligners.
