What is the Clear Aligners system?

The Clear Aligners system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Clear Aligners treatment uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to depict your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.

Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth — and your teeth only — to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved.

Your Clear Aligners  treatment time will be determined by your doctor based on your specific needs.

What are the primary benefits of Clear Aligners treatment?

Clear Aligners are clear, which makes Clear Aligners treatment a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others. Clear Aligners are also removable. Unlike braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment simply by removing the aligners when you eat. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.

Unlike traditional metal braces, Clear Aligners treatment does not use metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth. In addition, you’ll spend less time in the doctor’s chair and scheduling appointments, and more time out doing the things you love.

Lastly, Clear Aligners  treatment technology allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment, so you can preview how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.

How many patients are in Clear Aligners treatment?

More than 5,000,000 patients worldwide have been treated with Clear Aligners. The number of Clear Aligners smiles grows daily. At your next appointment, we can answer any questions you might have, and get you started on the smile you’ve always wanted.
