Clear aligners were designed to make the alignment process virtually invisible and more comfortable.
Clear aligners are a series of custom-made, BPA-free plastic aligners and are suited for a range of age groups and cases.
These aligners are removable and sit flat against your teeth as they gradually move your teeth into the desired position to create a natural, straight smile.
Clear aligners are the modern advancements to orthodontic treatment.
How do clear aligners work?
A 3-D scan of your teeth and jaw will allow us to create a personal treatment plan completed through custom fit clear aligners. Each aligner is a mould of your teeth and arch but with a slight shift. Wearing each aligner will gradually move your teeth into the desired spot. You wear each aligner for a minimum of 22 hours each day for two weeks and will be given a new aligner at every orthodontic visit.
Although each treatment is individual, this process takes anywhere from 9 to 24 months.
What are the benefits of clear aligners?
Clear aligners use innovative orthodontic techniques to result in a more comfortable treatment experience. There are many benefits of clear aligners including:
- Removable for easier eating and maintaining good oral hygiene
- Straighten your teeth discreetly
- Reduced pain or irritation that comes with brackets and wires
- Less time at the orthodontist
- A comfortable and holistic approach
