Clear Orthodontics

Clear Aligners – Orthodontics

Clear aligners are commonly used for people with:

 

Mild-Moderate Crowding
Moderate Spacing
Relapse from prior Orthodontics
Over-bite, Open-bite, Deep Bite

The clear orthodontic technique corrects malocclusion using a series of custom-made, nearly invisible, comfortable, removable aligners.

It is performed first by taking a series of detailed impressions, photos and x-rays. A computer scan will be made of your impressions and a simulation of orthodontic treatment will be made on the computer. Following this, your precise series of clear aligners will be computer constructed.

 

Your treatment will begin about six weeks after your impressions are taken.
Cost and Payment will be discussed during your consultation appointment. Payment is due in three stages: at the time of impressions, at the delivery of the first set of aligners, and at the second set of aligners six weeks later. The cost of your treatment directly depends on the difficulty, length and time of treatment required. Your costs will include one year of retainers and retention.

 

Consultation Appointment: During a Consultation at Smile Artistry our Dentists will explain in detail whether Treatment is suitable for you. Your Dentist will then recommend a detailed assessment and a tailored treatment program to address your concerns, ensuring your teeth and gums are ready for Clear Aligners.
