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.

Why Choose TW Orthodontics?

At TW Orthodontics we understand that you may want to straighten your teeth, but you may not like the look of braces. This is why we offer both 3M Clarity™ Aligners and Invisalign® to offer multiple discreet options for orthodontic treatment. Our caring, compassionate orthodontists and staff take your feelings into consideration when it comes to recommending treatment. It’s not only about what we think; orthodontic treatment is a mutual decision between the orthodontist, the patient, and their parents in most cases.

Frequently Asked Questions 

What’s the difference between 3M Clarity™ Aligners and Invisalign® or Clear Braces?

3M Clarity™ Aligners are more like Invisalign® than clear braces. Clear braces consist of brackets that attach to your teeth like metal braces. Invisalign® and 3M Clarity™ both use clear plastic aligners. The main difference is in the imaging and software used to create your treatment plan.

How do you clean 3M Clarity™ Aligners?

The best way to clean your aligners is to brush them with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a clear, unscented soap. Toothpaste can be too abrasive for your aligners and may scratch them so that they appear cloudy. Soap with dyes or scents may cling to your aligners and color them or give them an unpleasant taste.

How much do 3M Clarity™ Aligners cost?

The cost of 3M Clarity™ Aligners is comparable to the cost of Invisalign but may cost less. The average cost ranges from $2,500-$4,500 for 3M Clarity™ Aligners, which is on the lower end of the spectrum for orthodontic treatment. The actual cost for you will depend on a variety of factors, mainly the extent of the orthodontic corrections you need.

Does insurance cover clear aligners?

In most cases, if you have dental insurance with orthodontic coverage, it can be put toward any type of orthodontic treatment, including 3M Clarity™ Aligners. But it is always best to check with your plan provider first to determine what is covered before starting treatment. Payment options are available to make any out-of-pocket costs more affordable.
