The clear orthodontic technique corrects malocclusion using a series of custom-made, nearly invisible, comfortable, removable aligners.
It is performed first by taking a series of detailed impressions, photos and x-rays. A computer scan will be made of your impressions and a simulation of orthodontic treatment will be made on the computer. Following this, your precise series of clear aligners will be computer constructed.
