Be sure to wear your teeth aligners as instructed. No cheating allowed (well, a little cheating is okay, but not too much)! Here are some other helpful tips on how to correctly wear your clear aligners in order to achieve the best end results:


    Wearing clear aligners can be a bit uncomfortable and awkward at first. The first 2 to 3 days are always the hardest. Luckily, you’ll get used to them in no time. As you continue going through your aligners, it will get easier and easier. A good advice is to wear your new aligners in the evenings. This way, you can go right to sleep and adapt to them overnight. If needed, use some pain relievers (such as Tylenol or Advil) or try drinking a cold soda as you continue to get used to wearing your new clear aligners.

    20 to 24 HOURS A DAY

    There are a few different ways to wear your clear aligners. The standard wear method requires that you to wear your clear aligners full time. This means all day long for as many hours as you can. You must wear your clear aligners when you are awake and asleep, working and resting, talking and relaxing! You’re only supposed to take out your aligners for eating, drinking or cleaning your teeth. Water is the only exception and you can leave your aligners in when sipping water. There are two other methods for wearing your aligner which are daytime only wear and nighttime only wear. You can learn more these methods by clicking here.


    There are 3 important rules to using your clear aligners correctly: (a) wear your aligners in the correct order, (b) wear them for enough hours per day and (c) wear each set for at least 2 weeks. Never skip an aligner. Also, don’t rush through wearing them. You’re supposed to wear each clear aligner for a minimum of 2 weeks before switching out to the next one. Why 2 weeks? If you wear your aligner for less than 2 weeks your teeth won’t stabilize in their new position. This means that your teeth could easily bounce back to their previous position. If your new aligners hurt, continue wearing your old aligner for an extra 2 to 3 days. The maximum wear time for each aligner is 4 weeks. If you’re still having issues switching to your new aligner after 4 weeks, then you should go see your dentist. You need to figure out if there’s a problem and find a solution.


    • You should wear your clear aligners when napping or sleeping (unless you’re using the daytime only clear aligner wear method)
    • Use chewies to seat your aligners if they’re not all the way in
    • Stand in front of a mirror and use your outtie tool to remove your aligners if they are too tight
    • If your aligners are super tight, start by removing the back part and then remove the front part
    • Remove your clear aligners every day and continue brushing and flossing your teeth as you normally would
    • You can clean your clear aligners with soap or dish washing liquid, just don’t use toothpaste on them as it could damage your aligners
    • Maintain your regular dental checkups and cleanings throughout your smile journey
    • Contact your Even28 dentist if you have any questions or run into an emergency


    What if I don't qualify for at home clear aligners?

    Naturally, Even28 at-home™️ is our most popular and affordable clear aligner program. After all who doesn't want a straight smile in an average of 5 months for as little as $50 a month? However, at home aligner programs don't work for everyone. For instance, if you need to correct bite problems, or have really crooked teeth or suffer from an underbite or crossbite, then you won't qualify for Even28 at-home™️.

    Now, this doesn't necessarily mean that you have to wear braces just yet. You may still qualify for Even28 at-dentist™️ program. Even28 at-dentist™️ is an unlimited clear aligner program which is supervised and offered by your Even28 dentist. Dentist delivered aligner programs allow for more tooth movement as compared to at home aligner programs. To learn more about Even28 at-dentist™️ clear aligner program, click here. Also, why don't we take a closer look at which orthodontic cases qualify for Even28 at-dentist™️ clear aligners:


    Orthodontic cases which require bite correction should always be treated under direct dentist supervision, regardless of whether you choose clear aligners or braces. In order to correct your bite relationship using clear aligners, your dentist must place attachments (buttons), perform tooth contouring, etc. These treatments require regular dental visits and direct dentist supervision. Unfortunately, do-it-yourself clear aligner programs don’t tell you this. As a result, DIY aligners routinely screw up patients’ bites in the process of straightening their front teeth. Having a dentist supervise your smile journey may cost a bit more, but it will prevent bite problems. Don’t mess with your bite! Bite problems lead to tooth fracture, dental restoration failure and headaches. Go with dentist delivered aligner programs if you require any sort of bite correction.


    Tougher orthodontic cases also don’t qualify for at home clear aligner therapy. For instance, extremely crowded teeth don’t respond well to at home aligner programs. Without proper dentist supervision and treatment, your teeth will simply relapse back to their previous position within a few years. To properly straighten super-crowded teeth, your dentist must create additional spacing to accommodate your teeth into their new position. This technique, known as tooth contouring or interproximal reduction (IPR), can only be performed by a licensed dentist using our Even28 at-dentist™️ program. The same goes for more advanced orthodontic conditions such as most overbites and all crossbites and underbites. These orthodontic conditions should always be treated under direct dentist supervision. You should never try to fix complicated orthodontic conditions with at home do-it-yourself clear aligners like Smile Direct Club™. Your other treatment option for addressing complex orthodontic conditions is to wear braces.

    Definition of Even28 Dental Terminology


    An athletic mouth guard is a dental device used to prevent injury to your mouth during sport activities. There are two basic types of athletic mouth guards: (a) over-the-counter athletic mouth guards which can be purchased from your local drug store or online;  (b)custom athletic mouth guards made by your dentist to fit precisely to your mouth. Custom athletic mouth guards provide a better fit, more comfort and better protection of your teeth and gums against injury. Additionally, custom athletic mouth guards help reduce your chances of sustaining a concussion during serious sport injuries.



    Attachments, or buttons, are tiny white fillings which dentists place on your teeth. Buttons are used to apply additional torque onto your teeth to rotate/tip more stubborn teeth. This allows for better tooth movement to help straighten severely crooked teeth. Buttons are temporary: once your clear aligner therapy is complete, your dentist will remove all buttons from your teeth.



    Bite adjustment, or occlusal adjustment, is a procedure used to correct minor bite issues by removing interferences in the way your teeth come together. Bite adjustment is typically performed after completion of orthodontic treatment, or other extensive dental treatments, to correct ant remaining issues with your bite. The goal of bite adjustment is to ensure that there is even pressure to distribute your bite forces evenly. Without bite adjustment, you run the risk or fracturing your teeth and fillings,  developing headaches and other bite-related problems.



    Braces are placed by your dentist or orthodontist to straighten your smile. Braces treatment relies on metal brackets which attach to your teeth surfaces as well as wires and rubber bands used to move your teeth into their desired final position. You can fix almost all types of orthodontic misalignments using braces. The alternative to braces is known as clear aligners. Clear aligners are used to fix mild-to-moderate orthodontic misalignments and clear aligners are not as effective as braces when it comes to complex tooth movements.



    Clear aligners are a series of custom-made plastic trays which are used to move teeth for orthodontic treatment. Clear aligners are made using impressions or scans of your teeth. Each plastic tray moves your teeth just a fraction of millimeter. As you continue wearing each aligner, your teeth gradually move into their desired final position. Wearing clear aligners is more comfortable and less visible than putting on braces. Plus, you can remove clear aligners by yourself whereas braces are constantly stick to your teeth. Clear aligner treatment is used to fix mild-to-moderate orthodontic misalignments.



    Crossbite is where your upper teeth sit on the inside, instead of the outside, of your lower teeth in the horizontal plane. Crossbite is typically the result of having a large lower jaw or one that is positioned too far out as compared to your upper jaw. Having a crossbite affects your appearance as well as your dental and gum health. Plus, having a crossbite severely increases the likelihood of damaging your posterior teeth. Unfortunately, very few crossbite misalignments can be fixed with clear aligner therapy. Fixing your crossbite requires wearing braces, possibly in addition to tooth extraction or even jaw surgery.



    Deepbite is an extreme case of overbite. A deep bite is where your upper front teeth completely cover your lower front teeth in a closed biting position. Having a deep bite affects your appearance as well as your teeth and gum health. It also increases the likelihood of fracturing your anterior teeth, affects your bite and causes headaches. Some cases of deep bite can be fixed with dentist delivered clear aligner therapy. However, most deep bite conditions require wearing braces instead of clear aligners.



    Digital scans capture copies of your teeth to communicate the shape, size and position of your teeth with their dental laboratory. Dentists and orthodontists take digital scans of your teeth by using a special computerized scanner. Taking digital scans is more comfortable and quicker than traditional impressions. Plus, digital scans can be submitted immediately to the laboratory for faster and more accurate results.



    Even28 clear aligners are a type of custom-made clear aligners used to move teeth for orthodontic treatment. Even28 clear aligners are an alternative to Invisalign®, ClearCorrect™, Smile Direct Club™ and other clear aligner systems. Even28 offers 2 different types of clear aligner programs: Even28 at-home™ and Even28 at-dentist™. Even28 at-home is an affordable clear aligner program offered through local dentists. The program is similar to Smile Direct Club or Candid Co. Even28 at-dentist is a dentist delivered clear aligner program similar to Invisalign®. Your dentist places attachments, performs tooth contouring and bite adjustment to give you better end results. Your Even28 dentist will help you decide if you’re a candidate for clear aligner therapy and will help you choose the program that’s right for you. 



    Even28 at-home™ is a clear aligner program similar to Smile Direct Club™, Candid Co™, Byte™ and other DIY clear aligner systems. The biggest difference between Even28 at-home and these other DIY clear aligner programs is that Even28 at-home requires an initial visit to a participating Even28 dentist. Your Even28 dentist will determine if you’re a good candidate for at home clear aligner therapy. If so, they will take impressions/scans of your teeth and help you get started with your clear aligner program. Even28 at-home is priced similarly to DIY clear aligner programs with the added benefit of having a local, experienced dentist supervise your treatment. Even28 at-home is ideal for treating simpler teeth crowding, spacing, mild overbites, orthodontic relapses and other mild orthodontic conditions.



    Even28 at-dentist™ is a clear aligner program similar to Invisalign®, ClearCorrect and other dentist directed clear aligner systems. The biggest difference between Even28 at-dentist and other dentist directed clear aligner systems is that Even28 at-dentist includes unlimited clear aligners. This allows your Even28 dentist to offer ideal treatment without concern about how many aligners are required to complete your treatment. Even28 at-dentist programs require a combination or tooth contouring, attachment placement and/or bite adjustment. Even28 at-dentist is ideal for treating severe teeth crowding, moderate overbites and other mild-to-moderate orthodontic conditions. To learn more about Even28 at-dentist clear aligner treatment, visit a participating Even28 dentist near you.



    Fixed retainer is a type of retainer that is permanently glued onto your front teeth. A fixed retainer is an alternative to wearing removable retainers. Fixed retainers are recommended for patients who have trouble remembering to wear their retainers. They are also a good option for those who have undergone extensive tooth movement where there is concern of orthodontic relapse. The biggest advantage of fixed retainers is that they always stay on your teeth. This means that you never have to worry about forgetting to wear your retainers or losing them. The disadvantage of fixed retainers is that it makes it difficult to clean teeth which connected to your retainer. You must maintain excellent oral hygiene and periodic dental cleanings if you opt to wear fixed retainers.



    Impressions are moldings of your teeth which your dentist uses to communicate the shape, size and position of your teeth with the laboratory. Dental impressions are typically taken using putty or Vinyl Polysiloxane (VPS). They are used for communicating the shape, size and position of your teeth for clear aligner therapy. Additionally, dental impressions are used to make custom night guards, athletic mouth guards, orthodontic retainers, crowns, bridges, dentures and many other dental prosthesis.



    Invisalign® is a dentist delivered clear aligner system similar to ClearCorrect™ and Even28 at-dentist™ . Invisalign® was established in 1997 by Align Technology. Their clear aligners are unique in that they are scalloped around your teeth as opposed to extended beyond your teeth margins. Invisalign® clear aligners are used to fix teeth crowding, spacing, overbite, orthodontic relapse and a few other orthodontic conditions. For more advanced Invisalign® treatments, your dentist may use attachments, tooth contouring and/or bite adjustment. If you’re interested in Invisalign® clear aligner therapy, you must visit a participating Invisalign® provider near you. Your Invisalign® dentist or orthodontist will help you decide if you’re a candidate for clear aligner therapy and help you get started. 


    A night guard is a device worn overnight to protect your teeth against the harmful effects of teeth grinding. There are two basic types of night guards: (2) over-the-counter night guards which can be purchased from your local pharmacy or online; (b) custom night guards made by your dentist to fit precisely to your teeth. Custom night guards are recommended for patients with more advanced teeth grinding habits, history of broken teeth and those suffering from frequent headaches or other TMJ problems.



    An open bite is whenever you have a gap between your upper and lower teeth in the vertical plane when biting down. Open bite is typically the result of childhood thumb sucking or tongue thrusting. Having an open bite affects your appearance as well as your chewing efficiency. Luckily, most cases of open bite misalignments can be fixed with Even28 at-home™ clear aligner therapy. The worse cases of open bite still require braces instead of clear aligners.



    Orthodontic relapse occurs once you’ve completed braces or clear aligner treatment but fail to wear your retainers. Failing to wear your retainers causes your teeth to gradually shift back to their pre-treatment position and become crooked again. Orthodontic relapse is exacerbated by your wisdom teeth pressing against your remaining teeth or losing teeth. Luckily, orthodontic relapse is easier to treat as compared to initial orthodontic therapy. Most orthodontic relapse cases can be fixed with clear aligner treatment in lieu of braces.



    Overbite is the distance between your upper and lower front teeth in the horizontal plane. Having an overbite is a terms that refers to having an excess distance between your front teeth. A normal overbite is about 2 to 3 millimeters. Anything greater than that is considered having an overbite. Having an excessive overbite affects your appearance as well as your teeth and gum health. It also causes your anterior teeth to fracture more frequently. Luckily, most cases of overbite misalignment can be fixed with clear aligner therapy. The worse cases of overbites require braces instead of clear aligners.



    Removable retainers are orthodontic retainers which can be inserted and removed from your mouth by yourself. There are two common types of removable retainers: Essix retainers and Hawley retainers. Essix retainers, also known as clear retainers, are similar to clear aligners, except they are made from very firm plastic. Clear aligner therapy typically uses Essix clear retainers to prevent orthodontic relapse. Removable retainers are easier to wear as compared to fixed retainers. Removable retainers tend to lose their effectiveness over time and require replacement. Plus, there’s a chance that you could lose your removable retainers. It’s recommended to purchase more than one removable retainer so that you have at least one backup, just in case.



    A retainer is a dental prosthesis designed to keep your teeth in their current position upon completion of orthodontic treatment. Without wearing your retainers, your teeth gradually move back to their pre-treatment position. There are two basic types of retainers: (a) removable retainers which come in and out of your mouth; (b) fixed retainers which are permanently glued onto your teeth. Your dentist or orthodontist will help you determine which type of retainer best suits your needs.



    Smile Direct Club™ clear aligners are a type of at home clear aligner system similar to Candid Co™, Even28 at-home™ and other at home clear aligner programs. Smile Direct Club™ was established in 2013 by a pair of young entrepreneurs. They use Invisalign® made clear aligners and offer up to 20 clear aligners to straighten your teeth. The biggest criticism of Smile Direct Club™ is that you never actually meet the dentist in charge of straightening your teeth. This leads to risks which could cause irreversible damage to your teeth and gums. Smile Direct Club™ clear aligners can be used to fix mild teeth crowding, teeth spacing and other minor orthodontic conditions. For more advanced orthodontic treatments, you require dentist delivered clear aligner treatment or braces. If you’re interested in Smile Direct Club™ clear aligner therapy, you must visit a participating Smile Shop™ or buy their impression kit online.



    Teeth crowding occurs whenever you have more teeth in than there is space to accommodate them. Typically, teeth crowding results from having too many teeth in your mouth or because your teeth are too large for their respective jaw. Teeth crowding causes your teeth to fight over space with one another, which leads to crooked teeth. Having crowded teeth affects your appearance and can cause cosmetic concerns. Additionally, teeth crowding is a trigger for gum disease and dental cavities. It can also negatively impact your bite and overall oral health. Teeth crowding can be fixed using braces or clear aligner therapy. 



    Teeth spacing occurs whenever you have natural gaps between your teeth. Typically, teeth spacing occurs because your jaw is too large for your teeth. This causes your teeth to drift apart and creates gaps in between them. Teeth spacing also happens when you lose a tooth which causes your remaining teeth to drift and creates gaps in your mouth. Teeth spacing affects your smile and can cause aesthetic concerns. Additionally, teeth spacing increases your likelihood of developing dental cavities and gum disease. It also negatively impacts your bite and oral health. Teeth spacing can be fixed using braces or clear aligner therapy. 



    Tooth contouring is a technique used by dentists and orthodontists to assist in clear aligner therapy. Tooth contouring is an alternative to extracting teeth. Your dentist will shave away a tiny bit from one or more of your teeth to create additional space for tooth movement. Tooth contouring is used in dentist delivered clear aligner therapy to treat teeth crowding, overbite and certain other orthodontic conditions. Typically, spacing and openbite treatment does not require teeth contouring.



    An underbite is the reverse of an overbite, where your lower front teeth stick out in front of your upper teeth. Underbite is typically the result of having too large of a lower jaw or when your lower jaw is positioned too far out as compared to the upper jaw. Having an underbite affects your appearance as well as your dental and gum health. It also increases the likelihood of fracturing your anterior teeth, affects your bite and could lead to headaches. Unfortunately, very few underbite conditions can be fixed using clear aligner therapy. Most underbite conditions require wearing braces, possibly in addition to tooth extraction or even jaw surgery.



    Whitening trays are custom-designed plastic trays which are used to bleach your teeth. Whitening trays are custom made by your dentist using impressions or scans of your teeth. They are designed to precisely fit on top of your teeth to efficiently deliver bleaching gel to your teeth surfaces. Custom whitening trays yield better whitening results as compared to most other at home bleaching options. Plus, you can reuse your custom whitening trays over and over again to maintain a whiter smile over time.
