What are 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners?

3M™ Clarity™ Aligners are a discreet, removable way to fix your smile that’s custom designed and virtually invisible. They gradually move your teeth without using any metal wires or braces. Patients wear a series of removable, nearly invisible plastic trays designed to help guide their teeth into the ideal position.

High-tech clear aligners

3M™ Clarity™ aligners are virtually invisible and easily removable, so you can eat and drink what you want and brush or floss as needed. They are also comfortable, with no irritating metal used during treatment. This means that you will spend less time with Dr. Payne in his Sacramento, CA office getting adjustments. 3M™ also lets you see how straight your teeth will look when treatment is finished.

Treatment starts with a custom, digital treatment plan, created by Dr. Payne, that shows you how your teeth will move and how long it will take to reshape your smile. The aligner trays are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have proven as effective as traditional metal dental braces.

During treatment, you’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that everything is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically requires from nine to 15 months. The number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both estimates will vary from one person to another.
