2Usmiles Impression Process
Top and bottom tray sets * 2
Base and Catalyst putty sets * 4
Mouth retractor *1
Mixing the putty
Rinse and floss your teeth before you start.
Set a timer for 1 minute. Mix the blue and white putty for 30 seconds until it's even.
Roll the putty into a 4-inch cylinder, and place it into the tray before the timer is up.
Creating the impression
Slide the tray into your mouth carefully.
Make sure your front and back teeth have fully sunken into the putty. The putty should also cover your gum line.
Pull your lips and cheeks over the tray. Hold still for 3.5 minutes. Stay as still as possible during this period, keep two thumbs under the tray to secure it.
After 3.5 minutes, remove the tray by pulling it down on the sides rather than the handel.
Now repeat the process with the bottom tray for your lower teeth!
The separation between your teeth and gums must be clear. All your teeth should show up in the putty as well.
What are 2Usmiles clear aligners and how do they work?2Usmiles clear aligners (or clear braces/invisible aligners) are the alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment with metal braces. You will receive a set of aligners, and each aligner tray will gently push your teeth on specific points to move them into the correct position. With every set of aligners, you should see your smile transform!
What is the difference between 2Usmiles clear aligners and braces?Clear aligners work as “clear braces.” But unlike traditional braces, clear aligners are nearly invisible, offering more mobility in day-to-day life. 2Usmiles clear aligners are also comfortable, removable, and easy to manage.
How long is the 2Usmiles treatment process?Depending on the treatment plan and the severity of your case, 2Usmiles clear aligners can take as few as 4 months for Quick Effective, 8 months for Ultra Comfort, and 12 months for Night Comfort.
How many hours per day do I have to wear my 2Usmiles clear aligners?If you decide on the daytime plan (Quick Effective or Ultra Comfort), 2Usmiles clear aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours a day. You should only remove the tray to eat, drink (other than water), brush, and floss. The treatment plan is designed in this way, and not wearing your aligners for the minimum amount of time required each day could jeopardize your progress. The Night Comfort, on the other hand, should be worn at least 10 hours per day, ideally when you’re sleeping.
