How do Invisalign® and 3M Clarity™ clear aligners work?

As with all types of braces, the first step to a beautiful smile is scheduling a free Invisalign® and 3M Clarity™ clear aligner consultation. Dr. Knapp will review your personal diagnostic information and make sure these clear aligner systems are right for you. Once approved a 3D digital scan will be taken of your teeth to create your custom-made aligners. Each aligner is worn for one week and during that week the aligner slowly applies pressure, moving the teeth to the perfect position.

How long does Invisalign® and 3M Clarity™ clear aligners take to straighten teeth?

The total number of aligners can range from 10 to 70, which equates to a total time in treatment of 4 to 18 months. The big difference in treatment times is because each patient is starting from a different spot and has different needs. Most patients are in treatment for around 6-10 months.

What are the benefits of Invisalign® and 3M Clarity™ clear aligners?
