What are invisible braces?

Do you wish for straighter teeth?

Have you always wished for straighter teeth but were put off by having the traditional train track braces? Maybe you had braces as a teenager and now your teeth have started to move back into their original position? You can now straighten your teeth with ease.

Embarrassed by discoloured or stained teeth?

Clearstep has the answer. Our specially formulated whitening gel can be used in conjunction with your positioners to effectively remove stains and discolouration.

Clear aligners

Clear aligners treatment allows you to transform your smile discreetly and comfortably with virtually-invisible, removable braces.

Clear aligners are completely transparent and custom made to gradually straighten your teeth without using any metal wires or brackets. Your aligners can discreetly correct several different orthodontic issues to give you a balanced, even smile in as little as three months.

The aligners look like clear, flexible retainers and are removable, so you can take them out when eating or brushing your teeth.

Are clear aligners right for me?

What are clear aligners made of?

Clear aligners are made of flexible plastic.

How will clear aligners treatment straighten my teeth?

Your unique clear aligners digital treatment plan maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Your clear aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on your plan.

Could clear aligners treatment be right for me?

It is possible to fix nearly all common teeth-straightening and bite issues, from simple to complex — all without interrupting your busy life

How often will I need an appointment?

Usually about once every four to six weeks. The goal of these visits is to ensure your clear aligners treatment is progressing as planned.

How long will treatment take?

The length of treatment depends on multiple factors, like how complex your case is and how often you wear your aligners.

The Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is designed to correct crooked or maligned teeth. It is a barely visible and removable orthodontic appliance. This allows patients to remove their braces for special occasions. It is very similar to a retainer brace, but has more advantages such as:

  1. The ability to correct moderate crowding and rotation of your teeth
  2. More comfortable to wear as the spring is made from nickel titanium rather than stainless steel
  3. No retention problems which means that if your teeth start to move back after a few years, you can use the same brace to push them back into the correct position.

How does it work?

The Inman Aligner utilises a lingual coil spring that puts pressure at the back of the teeth that need repositioning and a bar that is placed across the front of the teeth reverses the same pressure. These components work together to “squeeze” teeth together by pushing and pulling them into alignment.

How long does it take?

Fitting the aligner takes two half-hour appointments, followed by 15-minute monthly check-ups. Generally, your teeth can be treated within 6 to 16 weeks.

Is the Inman Aligner new?

Patients have been treated with Inman Aligners since 2000. In the United States approximately 450 to 500 new patients are prescribed treatment with Inman Aligners every month.

Will treatment with the Inman Aligner be uncomfortable?

No. Due to the gentle but steady orthodontic forces generated, the appliances are easily tolerated. Your doctor may suggest aspirin or Tylenol for the first few days of treatment if you encounter any discomfort.

Does it hurt?

You may find you need to take mild painkillers for the first week or so. Like anything foreign to your mouth, it may cause you to salivate more than usual for 24 to 48 hours and could affect your speech for 7 to 10 days.

Is the Inman Aligner comparable to clear aligners?

No, the Inman Aligner is used for treating the top and bottom front teeth only. Clear aligners can treat full arches (all your teeth).

Will the Inman Aligner affect my speech?

Yes. The Inman Aligner will affect your speech for a week or two. You will, however, get used to the appliances over time and will be able to speak fine with them in place.

Will I need to see the dentist frequently for adjustments?

The Inman Aligners are pre-programmed to reduce the need for office visits. Your dentist will prescribe a treatment due to your needs.

When it comes to Dental Treatment I’ve never been pushing myself to be first in the Queue. However, I could not recommend Nadim & the Team enough, they have always gone out of their way to explain procedures, making sure my anxiety Is reduced.
