Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are one of the most sought-after types of orthodontic treatment for adults. Most commonly known by the manufacturer's name, such as Invisalign® or ClearCorrect, aligners are created using advanced technology and work by applying targeted pressure to your teeth, which gradually moves them into alignment.


What are the benefits of clear aligner treatment?

Clear aligners have become extremely popular due to their subtle appearance. They are transparent in colour, almost invisible, and custom-made to fit snugly on your teeth.

If you're not completely happy with your smile, but you don't want to have metal braces, clear aligners might be the perfect option for you. Straighter teeth don't just look better, they work better as well - badly aligned teeth can interfere with bite function, wear out faster, and are more prone to cavities.

There are many advantages to using clear aligners over traditional methods: 

  • They are almost invisible and have a discreet appearance
  • They're removable, so easy to clean after eating and drinking
  • They're more comfortable as they are custom-made to fit your mouth
  • They can usually straighten your teeth in a quicker amount of time

Do clear aligners work as well as braces?

Usually, clear aligners work best for patients who require minor corrections to problems such as gaps in their teeth, mildly crooked teeth, or protruding teeth. Although more complicated orthodontic cases can also be treated with these aligners, the results can be less predictable.

For major orthodontic work, traditional braces are likely to be a better option. This is because when you're fitted for braces, you have a fixed appliance which is then adjusted throughout your treatment to achieve the desired outcome. These regular check-ups allow your practitioner to keep an eye on your movement and tailor any adjustments as necessary.

Clear aligners are also usually best for teens and adults. Straightening children's teeth is more complicated as young people, and their mouths, are still growing and developing.
