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 Smiles for Maple Valley 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. 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.
• Invisible - The aligner’s ISO refractive surface makes them very hard to spot.

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