Clarity™ means Comfort
Southern Maine Orthodontics is straightening smiles with revolutionary 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners!
These aligners are made from smooth, clear plastic and designed as an “invisible” alternative to traditional metal braces that provides noticeable results. They’re customized to fit the unique shape and contours of your teeth and gums for a comfortable fit. No irritation to gums and cheeks that you may encounter with traditional braces.
Clarity™ means Convenience
Patients of all ages can be treated with 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners. These aligners can be removed for brushing flossing, eating and drinking, and can withstand staining and discoloration. Their discreet, “barely there” look means no one will know you’re wearing Clarity™ aligners – unless you tell them! This is a fantastic option for patients who may be self-conscious about the appearance of traditional braces.
Clarity™ means Condensed Treatment Times
The treatment time with 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners varies by patients’ orthodontic issues, but research has shown these aligners move and straighten teeth into their correct position in a shorter period than traditional metal braces. Your aligners will come in a set, and you’ll replace a current pair every one to two weeks – no adjustment appointments to replace ties or wires! Additionally, Clarity™ Aligners have been shown to aid in the prevention of teeth grinding and tooth decay.
How Clarity™ Works
Your journey to a healthy beautiful smile with Clarity™ begins with taking impressions of your teeth and mouth – all digital, all non-invasive, no use of traditional (and unpleasant) putty impressions. Using our advanced technology, Dr. Murphy and his team will formulate a customized treatment plan using Clarity,™ specific to your unique orthodontic needs.
While 3M Clarity are a terrific treatment option, Dr. Murphy must determine if you are a candidate. Contact Southern Maine Orthodontics for a consultation today.
