Articles How Do ClearStep Braces Work For Patients In The City Of London?
If you have crooked teeth, your teeth are crowded together or you have big gaps between your front teeth, you may assume that you’re destined to wear highly visible braces for the next few years, but you’ll be pleased to know that we have some amazing discreet orthodontic treatments on offer, including Clearstep.
Clearstep is a cosmetic brace system, which uses clear aligners, also known as positoners, to move and straighten the teeth. Clearstep provides a discreet alternative to fixed braces and it is a very popular treatment for adult patients who want a more attractive smile without the inconvenience of wearing unattractive braces.
Clearstep aligners are made from transparent, thin plastic, which means that they are virtually invisible to others. They are also removable, which many people prefer as it gives them a sense of freedom.
How does treatment work?
During your consultation, your dentist will create impressions of your teeth and take photographs of your mouth, which will be used to plan your treatment. The latest software is used to predict the treatment and the aligners are made using this treatment plan. Each aligner is slightly different and they must be worn in a set order to ensure that the teeth are moving in the right direction.
Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks and then discarded; the next aligner is then won for two weeks and then so on until treatment is complete. The aligners should be taken out to eat, drink and clean your teeth.
Could I benefit from Clearstep?
Clearstep is an ideal treatment for people who are looking for a discreet solution; this treatment is suitable for patients with a wide range of orthodontic issues, but t may not be the best choice for patients who need a lot of movement and fixed braces may be preferable in this case.
How long does treatment take?
Treatment time differs according to the individual patient, but most cases are complete within 9-18 months at Harley Street Dental Studio in the city of London.
