What to Expect

  • Consultation

    During your consultation, your dentist will:

    • Review your chief orthodontic concerns
    • Evaluate all records, photos and X-rays
    • Discuss all prospective treatment approaches and the pros and cons of each.

  • Digital Scan & 3D Models

    Once Crystal Clear Aligners have been selected as the best treatment choice, treatment begins with a 3D digital impression of both arches and/or regular impressions. 

    Using specialized software, the digital scans are then used to create 3D models of the patient’s teeth and bite to be used during treatment.  

  • Treatment Plan Established

    Staging of the teeth movements is a key factor in the aligner’s efficacy. This phase determines the patient’s outcome and ensures efficient treatment and accurate results. The patient’s specialist will identify the number and direction of movements required in each step so that each corresponding Crystal Clear Aligner tray introduces gentle movement while providing the most efficient force with the least amount of discomfort.

    Crystal Clear patients are seen periodically during each phase according to your provider instructions. The desired outcomes and fundamental goals for the next phase are discussed and identified. Treatment time may be influenced by a variety of factors, including the patient’s compliance with the treatment protocol and the overall treatment objectives.
