Clear Aligners

Clear Aligners is a way to straighten your teeth without braces. It uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
The aligners are made through a combination of your orthodontist's expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.

Advantages

  • Invisible, very thin, and don't impede speech
  • Ideal for adult patients who are reluctant to have a lengthy orthodontic treatment wearing metal brackets or bulky removable appliances
  • An excellent tool for final correction after orthodontic treatment, or Inman Aligner
  • Can realign teeth after relapse post-orthodontic treatment
  • Best for aligning mild crowding of anterior teeth
  • Most effective in labial, lingual & rotation movement with some limited intrusion and extrusion
  • A single posterior tooth can be moved buccally or lingually
  • Simple cases can be finished with only two or three aligners

How they work

  • Upper and lower silicone-based impressions are sent to the lab, where plaster casts are made and the case is assessed
  • Up to five aligners can be made out of each impression
  • Each aligner comes with a card indicating Inter Proximal Reduction instructions
  • Each aligner should be worn for about two weeks
  • Care instructions for patient will be enclosed
  • Please note that in some cases the estimated number of aligners will not achieve the desired result and more aligners will have to be made
