3M Clarity Aligners

What are 3M Clarity Aligners?

3M is a world leader in plastic and adhesive products and have been innovating dental and orthodontic treatments for more than 50 years. Clarity Aligners are almost invisible, but their results aren’t. 

The nearly-invisible custom-fit aligners are designed to guide your teeth into their ideal position, so you end up with a smile that is picture-perfect. Just like Invisalign, the team may recommend that you switch to the next aligner every week or less frequently depending on your needs. 

You can remove Clarity Aligners when you eat or drink, brush or floss your teeth, these clear aligners are as flexible as you are. 

What are the benefits of 3M Clarity Aligners?

The 3M Clarity Aligners have many advantages over traditional and clear ceramic braces. You might feel inclined to choose 3M Clarity Aligners because of these orthodontic treatments:

  • Can treat a variety of smile imperfections (e.g. crowding, overbite, underbite)
  • Are comfortable to wear
  • Are nearly invisible
  • Are removable
  • Don’t use orthodontic-wires
  • Require infrequent office visits (once every 8-10 weeks)
  • Let you keep your confidence

Clear aligners help you achieve straighter teeth without the inconvenience of traditional metal or ceramic braces. Depending on your unique treatment plan, you can have a straight smile in an average of 6-12 months.

Are 3M Clarity Aligners right for me?

The LM Orthodontics team often recommends clear aligners to patients who present with mild to moderate misalignment but don’t want the hassle of metal braces. If you’re curious about the benefits of clear aligners, here are five reasons to consider 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners:

  • Put your lifestyle first: Clarity Aligners are removable and nearly invisible.
  • Keep up the good hygiene: Removable aligners help you maintain your flossing and good dental habits.
  • Avoid the awkward food-stuck-in-braces faux pas: Removable aligners mean you can keep them clear and clean.
  • Love your food: Remove your aligners so that you can enjoy your favorite foods.
  • Enjoy the custom fit: Clarity Aligners are custom fit for you.

3M Clarity Aligners are appropriate for patients with mild to moderate misalignment. If your teeth are severely misaligned or crowded, the LM Orthodontics team may suggest metal or ceramic braces instead.

If you’d like straight teeth but hesitate at the thought of wires, brackets, and rubber bands, call LM Orthodontics or book a consultation online to find out if orthodontic treatment with 3M Clarity Aligners is right for you.
