3M Clarity Aligners





What are 3M Clarity Aligners?

Clarity Aligners are a clear solution for straightening your teeth. The clear aligner system is custom fit for your smile offering a treatment experience that is nearly invisible, convenient, and comfortable. The LM Orthodontics team recommends clear aligners to patients who present with mild to moderate misalignment but don’t want the hassle of metal wires or braces. Clarity Aligners treatment uses a system of removable, nearly invisible plastic trays designed to help guide your teeth into the ideal position to help you achieve the happy, healthy smile you want. Now you can get the smile you’ve always wanted from the brand you trust.



How do 3M Clarity Aligners Work?

  • Treatment using Clarity Aligners starts with a custom, digital treatment plan that shows you exactly how your teeth will move and how long it will take to reshape your smile.
  • You will get a series of clear aligners that should be worn for about one to two weeks each—depending on your custom treatment plan. You want to be sure to wear your Clarity Aligners in sequential order according to numbering on the packaging—moving through treatment as directed. The total number of aligners needed to complete your treatment will vary based on your smile’s needs.
  • It is recommended aligners be worn 22 hours a day, or as prescribed by your provider. The clear aligners are nearly invisible so you can go through your treatment and look good doing it.
  • You will want to remove your aligners so that you can enjoy your favorite foods and drinks (except water), keeping them clear and clean.
  • Clear aligners can be cleaned with a toothbrush and cool water. Specific cleaning instructions are included in your Clarity Aligners welcome kit.
