What are Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners are the invisible alternative to braces! If you’ve ever thought about straightening your teeth without braces, then this may be the ideal option for you.
Clear aligner therapy involves a series of aligners which slowly work to move your teeth. By wearing them, they put pressure on your teeth, allowing them to slowly move into positon. You will need to wear these aligners for at least 22 hours per day - only taking them out to eat or to brush/floss your teeth.
If you want to straighten your teeth but don’t like the thought of traditional braces, then clear aligners may be the best option for you!
What Clear Aligner Options are there?
At Mascot Dental Clinic, we offer two types of Clear Aligners - Invisalign and ClearCorrect. There are subtle differences between the two, but they both act to move your teeth into their desired position. Contact us today to see which one you are most suitable for!
The Clear Aligner Process
We will take photos, x-rays and a digital scan of your teeth using our digital scanner - no more messy impressions! This is then sent to Invisalign or ClearCorrect to generate a plan.
When the Treatment Plan/ ClinCheck comes back, we can see how your teeth will move and what the final result will look like.
When your aligners arrive, we will teach you how to look after your teeth, your aligners and how you help your teeth move faster.
Finally! You have the beautiful straight smile you’ve been looking forward to!
