What to Expect

The Spark Treatment Process

Step 1


You’ll meet with Dr. Nguyen to determine whether or not you’re a candidate for clear aligners. If you are, you’ll have a digital scan of your teeth and gums to create a personalized treatment plan with Spark’s proprietary 3D software. You’ll even be able to see a digital representation of your anticipated end results! From here, we’ll create your custom set of aligners and begin treatment.

Step 2


Wearing your Spark Clear Aligners is a breeze; that’s because they’re comfortable, invisible, and you can still take them out to eat, drink, or brush. You’ll come in for checkups every few weeks depending on your specific orthodontic needs and the recommendation from Dr. Nguyen. You’ll then be fitted with a new set of aligners to continue to gently move your teeth into proper alignment.

Step 3


With each aligner set, you’ll be one step closer to your brand new smile! Dr. Nguyen will help you determine the length of your treatment course and the best post-treatment care to keep your teeth straight and healthy.

Am I a good candidate for Spark?

Coming in for a consultation with Dr. Nguyen will help determine whether or not you’re a good candidate for Spark. In general, Spark Clear Aligners can be used to treat a wide variety of issues, including overbite, underbite, open bite, deep bite, crowding and spacing issues, and more. If you’ve felt that your smile is misaligned, you have gaps in between your teeth, or your teeth aren’t as straight as they once were, there’s a good chance that Spark Clear Aligners are an option for you!

How long do I wear the clear aligners each day?

To see the best results, you should aim to wear your aligners for 22 hours a day. This accounts for time to remove your aligners in order to eat and drink, as well as time to brush and floss your teeth each day.

How do I care for my Spark aligners?

There are a few things that help keep your aligners clean and your mouth healthy throughout treatment.

  • Rinse your aligners with cool (never warm) water whenever you remove them
  • Always brush your teeth before putting your aligners back in so that clean aligners go back on clean teeth
  • Don’t use toothpaste to clean your aligners and don’t rinse them with mouthwash

Dr. Nguyen can provide additional recommendations for proper care throughout your treatment, as well as ways to retain your results after treatment is complete.

What Are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are a modern and popular orthodontic treatment option that can help straighten your teeth without the use of traditional metal braces. They are made of a clear, BPA-free plastic material that is virtually invisible when worn. Clear aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth and gradually move them into their desired position.

How Do Clear Aligners Work?

Clear aligners work by applying gentle and controlled pressure to your teeth, gradually moving them into the desired position. The treatment process begins with a comprehensive examination by our orthodontist, Dr. Minh Nguyen, who will create a personalized treatment plan for you. Using advanced 3D imaging technology, we will design a series of custom aligners that you will wear for a specified period of time. Each set of aligners will be slightly different, gradually shifting your teeth until they reach their final position.

What Are The Benefits Of Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners offer numerous benefits for individuals seeking orthodontic treatment. First, they provide a discreet and nearly invisible way to straighten teeth, making them ideal for people who want to improve their smile without the noticeable appearance of traditional braces. 

Clear aligners are also removable, allowing for easy cleaning and maintenance of oral hygiene. Unlike braces, there are no restrictions on the types of food you can eat since you can remove the aligners during meals. 

Additionally, clear aligners are generally more comfortable than traditional braces, as they don't have wires or brackets that can cause irritation.

How Long Does The Treatment With Clear Aligners Typically Take?

The duration of clear aligner treatment varies based on individual orthodontic needs. On average, the process takes about 12 to 18 months, but this can be shorter or longer depending on the complexity of the case. 

Dr. Minh Nguyen will create a customized treatment plan, including a series of aligner trays that you'll change approximately every two weeks. Each set of aligners gently shifts your teeth into the desired position. Regular check-ups with Dr. Minh Nguyen in Purcellville are essential to monitor progress and ensure the treatment stays on track. It's important to follow the recommended wearing schedule to achieve the best results within the estimated timeframe.

Can Clear Aligners Be Removed While Eating Or Drinking?

Yes, clear aligners can and should be removed while eating or drinking anything other than water. It's essential to remove them during meals to prevent damage and maintain good oral hygiene. After eating or drinking, make sure to brush your teeth and clean your aligners before putting them back in.

Is The Treatment With Clear Aligners Painful Or Uncomfortable?

While some discomfort is normal during the initial days of wearing a new set of aligners, it's usually mild and temporary. Most people adjust to the sensation within a few days. Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners don't have sharp wires or brackets, so they are generally more comfortable. If you experience persistent discomfort, it's important to contact Dr. Minh Nguyen for guidance.
