Many children, teens, and adults are taking advantage of the convenient, revolutionary 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners. Produced by 3M™, the top leader in orthodontic products, these revolutionary clear aligners serve as an innovative alternative to Traditional Braces or 3M™ Clarity™ Advanced Ceramic Braces, providing the Specialist in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics unique control of tooth movement to create a more confident smile!
What are 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners?
The 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners are clear, custom-fit aligners are designed to provide the Orthodontist full control of tooth movement and smile esthetics.
These aligners are perfect for patients who have mild to severe teeth positioning issues, providing lifelong benefits of a healthier, more confident smile. The 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners are used as an alternative to traditional metal braces and move your teeth gently into their ideal position based on your unique treatment plan formulated by your Specialist.
How Do 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners Work?
The first step in your journey to a more confident smile with 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners begins with taking digital impressions, intraoral and extraoral photographs, and digital panoramic and cephalometric radiographs. Using market leading intraoral technology, your Orthodontic Specialist can formulate a custom treatment plan. To fix your malocclusion in a way that is compatible with your Facial Esthetics, we will take digital impressions of your teeth and gums to create a precise, detailed treatment plan for yours or your child’s unique needs.
You will wear the aligners for about one to two weeks, depending on your treatment plan, before you change to a new set of aligners. 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners can easily be removed for flossing and brushing as well eating and drinking and should be worn at least 20 hours a day.
Each new set of aligners will gradually move your teeth until they reach their ideal position. 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners are:
Invisible. These aligners are clear, blending in with your natural teeth to straighten and improve your smile discreetly.
Removable. You do not need to make changes to your eating habits or overall lifestyle since these aligners can be removed as needed.
Comfortable. These aligners are custom made for your mouth and composed of smooth plastic that is comfortable to wear for extended periods unlike the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces.
