3M Clarity Aligners in Stillwater, MN

There are lots of orthodontic treatments that can help perfect your smile, but not many are as technologically advanced and discreet as 3M Clarity Aligners. If you’re looking for braces alternatives with a clear aligner-based treatment method similar to Invisalign, visit your Stillwater orthodontist Henseler & Kocian to receive your 3M Clarity Aligners consultation. Here’s what to expect from this treatment and why it may be the best choice for you.

What Are 3M Clarity Aligners?

3M Clarity Aligners are a removable, nearly invisible alternative to traditional metal or ceramic braces. This means that your orthodontic treatment will be discreet, no one will be able to tell you are wearing a dental appliance. The fact that the aligners are removable also makes eating and cleaning teeth a breeze. Patients don’t need to give up their favorite foods, and they can floss and brush as usual. Best of all, you never have to cover up your smile during treatment, and the stunning results will be visible throughout the process.

Who is a Candidate for 3M Clarity Aligners?

Like Invisalign, 3M Clarity Aligners are recommended for patients with crooked teeth, or mild malocclusions including overbite, underbite, or crossbite. For more severe orthodontic cases, other appliances such as expanders or other types of braces may be necessary for addition to or instead of 3M Clarity Aligners.

What to Expect, Technology and Treatment

If you decide that 3M Clarity Aligners are right for you, you will go in for a consultation with the orthodontist to get started. An intra-oral scanner will be used to create a 3D computer model of your teeth, forgoing the use of messy impressions. Next, advanced computer software and powerful predictive algorithms will map your treatment from start to finish, visualizing and planning every stage of tooth movement in precise detail. A series of clear aligners are made to guide your teeth through each stage, and each set of aligners will be worn for a minimum of 2 weeks according to your treatment plan before you move on to the next. Treatment generally takes between 12 and 18 months.
