What are 3M Clarity™ Aligners®?
3M Clarity™ Aligners are a teeth-straightening system that can correct many orthodontic issues. It is similar to Invisalign® and other clear aligner systems in many ways, but the difference is in the treatment planning software, which allows for a more detailed design of the aligners and the individual movements for each tooth.
3M Clarity™ Aligners are available for children, teens, and adults who are good candidates for this type of orthodontic treatment.
Made of clear plastic that is virtually invisible, these aligners fit snugly to your teeth providing both comfort and low visibility while gently shifting your teeth into proper alignment. When beginning treatment, you will receive a complete set of aligners to wear according to your orthodontist’s instructions. Once you have worn all of these aligners, your teeth will have reached the desired position and treatment is complete.
Benefits of 3M Clarity™ Aligners
3M Clarity™ Aligners have many benefits as an orthodontic treatment:
- Virtually Invisible: The clear aligners are very discreet. Most people will not even notice that you are wearing a teeth-straightening system.
- Comfortable: Aligners are made of smooth plastic that won’t irritate the soft tissues of your mouth. They also move the teeth gently for greater comfort throughout your treatment.
- Convenient: 3M Clarity™ Aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat and care for your teeth.
- Precise. The 3M Clarity software allows orthodontists to design a specific treatment plan on a tooth-by-tooth basis to ensure you will achieve the desired results.
Are You a Good Candidate for 3M Clarity™ Aligners?
A good candidate for 3M Clarity™ Aligners has healthy teeth that simply need to be realigned. If your bite doesn’t line up properly or you have gaps between your teeth, 3M Clarity™ Aligners can correct these and other common orthodontic issues to transform your smile and help you keep your teeth healthy for life. Some patients may require orthodontic corrections that cannot be accomplished with 3M Clarity™. A simple evaluation will give us the information we need to make a recommendation.
