I’ve seen people with bumps on their aligners – what are they?
Depending on your treatment, it may be necessary to temporarily affix engagers (those weird bumps) to your teeth. They’re made of tooth-colored composite material and are there to assist with difficult tooth movements.

Wearing your aligners 22 hours a day is key to achieving your treatment goals.
