What are Clarity Aligners?
Clarity Aligners are a series of custom made removable trays designed to straighten your teeth, made of transparent plastic that makes them almost invisible to the eye. Clarity aligner trays adapt precisely to your dental alignment and gradually move your teeth to the correct arch shape, bite alignment and a beautiful smile.
Enjoy every day without others noticing that you are wearing braces (They are almost invisible). This is a popular choice among people who would rather not have traditional braces while taking care of their smiles. As an experienced orthodontist, Dr. Tottori will evaluate how your teeth will be aligned and can determine if aligner treatment is appropriate for you.
How does Clarity Aligners compare to Invisalign?
Although Invisalign has been around longer, the Clarity aligner system is an alternative that brings a few significant advantages. Clarity aligners are fabricated from a slightly stiffer material and is noticeably clearer than Invisalign, resulting in better control of the tooth movement and a more esthetic aligner. Another major advantage is the ability to combine Clarity aligner treatment with traditional braces or Incognito treatment. Each type of treatment has its pros and cons, by being able to combine them, we can present the best combination to solve your orthodontic needs.
Invisalign still has the advantage for the treatment of certain specific malocclusions and Dr. Tottori will readily recommend Invisalign or Clarity aligners depending on specific treatment objectives. Dr. Tottori has always been committed to researching and providing the best treatment options available and not just the most popular brand.
How do 3M Clarity Aligners work?
The custom aligners are created using 3D computer imaging technology depicting each stage from initial position to the final desired result. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, moving the teeth incrementally until the final result is achieved.
Clarity aligners are a perfect solution for teens and adults.
