On this page, you’ll learn more about this innovative clear aligner system. If you like what you discover, reach out to Ortega Orthodontics to schedule your consultation.

What Are 3M Clarity Aligners?

3M Clarity clear aligners are a series of custom-made trays that apply gentle pressure to the teeth. You wear each aligner for about 22 hours each day, for one or two weeks (depending on your specific treatment plan). Total treatment times vary from patient to patient, but you can expect to use the aligners for at least several months. After you work your way through all of your aligners, you will be the proud owner of a perfectly straight smile that you cannot help but show off.

Benefits of 3M Clarity Aligners

Clarity Aligners offer many of the same benefits as Invisalign. For example, they are nearly invisible, which means that onlookers may notice no evidence of your orthodontic treatment (other than the gradual changes in your smile). Also, since the aligners are removable, you’ll be able to enjoy all of your favorite foods without worrying about compromising your treatment’s success. The thin plastic of the aligners contributes to your comfort while you wear them.

It is clear that both Clarity Aligners and Invisalign are wonderful treatments, but does it matter which one you choose? Well, the Clarity system does offer one outstanding feature that makes it different from Invisalign. You can download a treatment tracking app. With the app, you can snap and share photos of your progress, as well as track your aligner wear time. The app even has a Share with Doctor feature that lets you connect with 3M.

Ready to learn more about 3M Clarity Aligners? Here are a few FAQs:

How Much Do Clarity Aligners Cost?

We’ll give you an estimate when you visit us for your consultation. In many cases, insurance is willing to pay a significant portion of the cost of orthodontic treatment if its primary intent is to benefit your oral and overall health. You may even be eligible for low-interest financing.

How Can I Care for My Aligners?

Oral hygiene is vital. You need to keep your teeth clean, and it is important that you do not eat when your aligners are in your mouth. You should also take time to regularly clean your aligners; your Clarity kit will come with detailed cleaning instructions.

Am I a Candidate for Clarity Aligners?

Dr. Holland will let you know if Clarity Aligners are a fit for your situation. They are capable of correcting many orthodontic issues, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, spacing, crowding, and more. If for any reason Clarity Aligners are not right for you, our team will talk to you about other treatment options.
