Club Grin’s product offerings are designed and prescribed to help you obtain a wonderful smile, without the typical problems that come from braces or surgery. Our dentists oversee your treatment plan. We then provide you a set of clear, BPA-free, plastic aligners that apply gentle pressure to your teeth. As you progress through your treatment plan and the different aligners, the aligners carefully guide your teeth into a more beautiful smile. We design Aligners for each stage of the straightening process. Straightening typically takes between 3 to 12 months. The information provided below gives you the information you need to help make a decision whether or not to use Club Grin’s straightening and optional whitening products, including the lasting benefits, potential difficulties, and risks associated with this process, which you should discuss with an Aligner Program dentist. If you have questions or concerns, you should always feel free to contact the Club Grin’s patient care team. Our goal is to make you smile.
Club Grin clear aligners are made from BPA-free plastic. Our aligners are thin, transparent and lightweight. Because the aligners are removable, you can eat, brush, and floss normally. If you opt for our whitening system, you will be able to whiten your teeth without interfering with the process of straightening your teeth.
Club Grin aligners are not an appropriate treatment method for everyone and, in some cases, may pose certain risks. These potential risks include:
Cavities, Gum, or Periodontal Disease - Tooth decay, cavities, periodontal disease, inflammation of the gums, or permanent markings (e.g., decalcification) may occur or get worse during the use of aligners. These risks are more likely to occur if you consume sugary foods and beverages and do not brush and floss your teeth before inserting the aligners or if you do not see a dentist for check-ups at least twice a year. While rare, discoloration or white spots may occur; small cavities may increase in size, causing sensitivity and, in some cases, pain or tooth cracking; gingival inflammation may increase, causing soreness and or bleeding. If any of these periodontal conditions continue without treatment, they could become more advanced, even to the point of tooth loss. You may have to discontinue aligner treatment. All these symptoms will require you to seek attention from a dentist of your choosing.
Allergic Reaction - While rare, some patients can become allergic to the materials used to create your aligners. If you have an allergic reaction during treatment, you should immediately please discontinue all aligner use and inform your primary doctor and Club Grin.
Nerve Damage in the Tooth - Tooth movement in some cases can accelerate nerve damage or nerve death resulting in a root canal, other dental treatment, or loss of the tooth. There is no basis for predicting which patients will suffer nerve damage during treatment, but it is suggested that patients with tooth injuries or had restorations have a higher risk. If your dentist detects nerve damage prior to or during your aligner treatment, you may need to discontinue treatment or eventual tooth loss could occur.
Discomfort - Minor soreness and discomfort not unusual. You can expect an adjustment period and some minor discomfort as your mouth gets used to each tray. Your bite may change during treatment and require adjustment.
Black Triangles - Overlapped teeth, especially where the condition has existed for a long time, could have missing gum tissue. Because of this, when overlapped teeth are aligned during treatment, a “black triangle” can appear below the interproximal contact.
General Health Issues - Your overall health could influence the movement of your teeth and the treatment outcome. Some patients with bone, blood, or hormonal disorders see negative effects from these conditions on their treatment. Also, many prescription and nonprescription drugs (including bisphosphonates) may have negative effects on your treatment.
Impacted and Supernumerary Teeth - Patients with impacted, unerupted or supplementary teeth are usually not good candidates for treatment with aligners. If you have teeth may become impacted or trapped below the bone or gums, or if you were born with “extra” or supplementary teeth, aligners are not a great option for you.
Previous Dental Treatment - If you have implants or bridges from previous dental restorations, these conditions could negatively affect treatment as aligners cannot properly move implants. Treatment may also require you to replace some dental restorations, such as crowns, veneers, or bridges, as a result of teeth movement.
Safety - While unusual, it is possible for aligners to break. There is the further risk that they can be swallowed or inhaled during treatment.
Oral Piercings - Many problems can arise during treatment for patients with oral piercings and we recommend removing all oral piercings during aligner therapy. Potential complications during treatment include fractures or broken teeth, either of which will force you to terminate your aligner treatment.
Shortening or Root Resorption - The roots of some patients’ teeth become shorter during the use of aligners. This is called “resorption.” Dentists cannot predict which patients will experience resorption; however, findings indicate that patients with previous treatment using traditional braces are at higher risk for the condition. Resorption is serious and can negatively impact your long–term oral health. If your dentist detects resorption during orthodontic treatment, you should discontinue treatment or serious tooth loss could occur. If you still have a primary tooth (also known as a “baby” tooth), tooth movement could accelerate the resorption and lead to tooth loss.
Supraeruption - It is possible for a tooth to grow out of the gums, known as supraeruption, if the aligner does not fully and properly cover the tooth. This condition is serious and could lead to problems in tooth cleaning, tooth decay, gum disease, and even loss of the tooth.
Temporary side effects - Some patients experience changes in their speech or salivary flow (how much saliva is produced in the mouth) during treatment due to having an aligner tray in their mouth.
Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ) - TMJ refers to problems in the joint where your jaw connects to your skull. Typical symptoms are pain, headaches, and ear problems. Aligner treatment can exacerbate this condition. Additional factors that could cause TMJ issues include past injury or trauma, hereditary conditions, arthritis, grinding or clenching of the teeth, and certain medical conditions.
Club Grin’s Aligner Program is not intended as a replacement to regular dental examinations or a recommended regime of normal dental care. Orthodontic treatment and the movement of teeth has inherent and potential risks and side effects. Risks from undergoing aligner therapy can include swelling, sensitivity, discomfort, sore jaw muscles, numbness, allergic reaction to aligner materials, and unforeseen medical or dental conditions discovered during treatment that require a modification of the original procedures or the need for other procedures specific to the patient. Another common result of treatment is an inflamed tissue attachment between the front teeth. The procedure required to treat this condition, known as a “frenectomy,” can only be provided by your dentist and is a recommended adjunctive treatment for the best outcome and long-term stability of results.
The length of time you wear the aligners and the results depend on many factors, including the severity of your case, the shape of your teeth, and the amount of time you wear the aligners each day. The average person generally wears the aligners for 4 to 8 months, but we cannot predict your actual rate of tooth movement and your treatment could be less or more than this range. If we need to extend your treatment time beyond our original estimates, we may charge additional fees. In some extreme cases, it may be necessary to perform interproximal reduction, or IPR, or tooth removal with traditional braces to achieve the best results.
If is possible that your teeth may move again after you complete treatment and discontinue the use of aligners. Accordingly, you will need to continue to use retainers in order to maintain your teeth in positions achieved during treatment. You should wear your retainer full-time for 2 weeks and then every night after that. Retainers typically last around 1 year, although this varies considerably among patients.
Type of Discoloration - The aligners’ whitening system does not lighten all teeth or tooth
restorations you may have. The whitening system may not treat discoloration in the form of blue, gray, multi-colored, or striped discolorations. In patients with gum recession or periodontal disease, the area of the tooth near the gum line may not respond to the whitening system. Also, the whitening system does not work on fillings, cavities, or other tooth damage. If you use cigarettes, red wine, coffee, tea, and other stain producing items this will negatively affect the whitening process.
White/Tooth-Colored Fillings – The whitening system may not work on white or tooth-colored fillings or may cause them to become softer. These types of fillings may need replacement after whitening in order for their color to match the now-lighter teeth or if the whitening system causes fillings to become soft.
Pregnancy - For women who are or may become pregnant: I agree that, although I may start or continue treatment during pregnancy, to do so, I will receive authorization from my treating physician before starting or continuing aligner treatment. While I do not have to provide this authorization to Club Grin, by agreeing to this section, I agree that I shall communicate with my doctor before starting or continuing the aligner process during pregnancy.
Sensitivity and Irritation – Excessive use of the whitening system can lead to gum and throat irritation if you swallow the whitening agent. When you first start using the whitening system you may experience tooth sensitivity. Further, if the whitening agent leaks into damaged or cracked teeth fillings you may experience discomfort and even possible nerve damage, which can be permanent.
Reversible – Teeth that have been whitened can become dark again over time, so you should reduce your intake of foods and beverages that cause the staining of teeth.
Alternatives to Club Grin’s Aligner Program include traditional braces, surgical options, and living with your teeth as they are.
