Clear Aligner Therapy
Caledonia Orthodontic Care
If you’re concerned about the appearance of metal braces, we offer clear aligner therapy to help you get the smile of your dreams without the wires and brackets you would usually associate with braces. Our office is proud to feature 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners to help you achieve straighter teeth. We encourage you to ask if clear aligners are right for you!
How Do Clear Aligners Work?
Clear aligners gradually shift the position of your teeth over time. Each aligner tray is custom-made to fit your teeth, and you’ll wear your trays for a few weeks before coming back to our office to switch it out for a new one.
Aligners can often achieve the same results as traditional metal braces in a shorter amount of time. However, you’ll need to be diligent about wearing your trays for 20-22 hours per day, only removing them for eating, cleaning, and the rare special occasion. Because of this, we do not recommend clear aligners for children or teens.
What We Offer
3M Clarity Aligners: Similar to Invisalign®, 3M Clarity Aligners can straighten your teeth without having to worry about metal wires or brackets. 3M is a trusted brand in oral care, and their line of clear aligners has helped thousands of patients since its original launch.
3Shape Ortho Analyzer: The 3Shape Ortho Analyzer allows us to create digital models of your teeth, making the aligners process quick and easy. We can even show you what your mouth will look like after treatment!
