A treatment with clear braces consist of a series of clear plastic shells that are designed to gradually correct minor alignment (tooth straightening) issues, typically changed every 2-3 weeks. The appliances are thin and flexible while strong enough to affect the desired changes.
Step by step, teeth and molars are slowly moved, just as with a regular brace treatment like metal braces. The appliances are to be worn at all times except when eating and cleaning. Approximately 21 hours per day seems to allow for optimal results.
Once the clear brace treatment is completed, your braces will be removed. After that, the retention phase begins. It’s possible that your teeth might still move after the braces treatment. To ensure that the results achieved remain, we place a invisible retention brace pending on your personal situation. This prevents your teeth from returning to the position they were in prior to the treatment.
