What is the ClearSmile system?

Clear aligners are a series of removable, clear orthodontic retainers that very gently exert forces on teeth to make them move a certain direction. They are very comfortable to wear and very discreet so many of our own staff have been treated with them - feel free to ask them! They are provided in sets of four to six at a time and generally are worn for a minimum of 20 hours a day for a week before changing to the next aligner - at the end of this set of aligners , the movement is reassessed by the dentist and further moulds taken for the next set of aligners.
