Clear aligners are a discreet alternative to traditional braces, using custom-made, transparent trays for teeth straightening. Ideal for certain patients, they gradually shift teeth into place without metal wires or brackets. A consultation with an orthodontist is necessary to determine suitability.

How Clear Aligners Work:

These aligners are made of strong plastic and are changed every two weeks, applying gentle force to move teeth. Worn for at least 20 hours a day, treatment duration varies from six months to two years, based on individual needs.


Clear aligners are a great alternative for patients who want a straighter smile but do not want to wear metal braces, or for patients who have had treatment in the past and want to make minor corrections to their smile. There are several advantages to orthodontic treatment with clear aligners.

  • Easier maintenance and oral hygiene
  • Comfortable, non-irritating material
  • Protection against teeth grinding
  • Removable for easy brushing and flossing

For those considering orthodontic treatment with clear aligners, a consultation with an orthodontist is the first step towards a straighter smile.
