What is the nail file for?

It may look like a nail file but really it isn’t. To make sure your aligners are as comfortable as possible we have included a file in your aligner kit so you can lightly file off rough edges should any be present.

Will wearing clear aligners affect my speech?

Like all orthodontic treatments, the aligners may temporarily affect your speech, and you may have a slight lisp for several days. However, as your tongue gets used to having aligners in your mouth, any lisp or minor speech impediment caused by your aligners should disappear within a couple of weeks.
