How do OrthoFX™ Clear Aligners Work?

OrthoFX clear aligners are a convenient alternative to traditional braces. They're removable, almost transparent, and made using a special 3-layer proprietary polymer that's more efficient and more comfortable than metal.

Using 3D scanning technology, the doctors at Middle Bay Dental Associates will create a personalized aligner system that gently moves your teeth into position stage-by-stage. Made from a next-generation polymer, FXTetra™, the clear aligner fits over your teeth like a glove, applying gentle pressure on each tooth to gradually straighten them over time. The aligners are shipped to your doctor's office and you'll switch out your old aligner with a new one each week.

Every treatment plan also includes a retainer to help make sure your teeth stay in place after you've completed your treatment. The retainers are made from a special FXTetra Bright polymer that gives your teeth a natural white color without the use of harsh chemicals.

OrthoFX™ teeth aligners are:

  • Comfortable - Made with 3 layers, each aligner has a central elastomeric layer for added comfort. Stain Resistant - The strong external polyester layer resists stains.
  • Stain Resistant - The strong external polyester layer resists stains.
  • Invisible - The aligner's ISO refractive surface makes them very hard to spot.

What conditions benefit from Orthodontic Aligner Treatment?

Image

Overbite

Most people have a slight overbite. But when your front upper teeth significantly cover your lower teeth, you're at higher risk for injury, pain while chewing, and speech problems.
Image

Underbite

An underbite can cause problems with chewing and digestion and increased wear and tear on your front teeth.
Image

Crossbite

A crossbite isn't just a cosmetic issue. Misaligned teeth can cause pain and increase the likelihood of tooth decay.
Image

Gap Teeth

Gap teeth can cause pockets to form between the teeth and gums where food gets stuck. This causes sore and tender gums and even leads to gum disease.
Image

Open Bite

An open bite can cause problems chewing, increased wear and tear on back teeth, and speech problems.
Image

Crowded Teeth

Crowded teeth are difficult to brush and floss. Plaque accumulation in inaccessible areas can cause tooth decay, bleeding gums, or bone loss.
