Clearfy invisible aligners are cut across the top, respecting your gum contour, which we believe is the best way for the aligners to grip and fit your teeth, creating the gentle force needed to straighten them.

Every Clearfy order begins with a 3D scan to determine if you are a candidate. The invisible aligner treatment is designed for minor to moderate alignment, including correcting spacing and crowding between teeth, rotation and minor bite correction.

How long do I need to wait after having my wisdom teeth removed before I can start with Clearfy?

It’s a good idea to wait six weeks after having your third molars (wisdom teeth) extracted before starting with Clearfy. You might be able to start sooner if your dentist or surgeon feels it’s safe, but we would need a signed release form from his or her office.

What if I still have my wisdom teeth?

Follow your dentist’s recommendation as to when you need to have your wisdom teeth removed. If they recommend removal, take care of that first. Otherwise, you can book a scan and a Clearfy-affiliated orthodontist will review your smile for you.

Treatment Process

Does a licensed dentist or orthodontist review my case?

Yes, your custom treatment plan is always reviewed, modified (if necessary), and approved by a duly licensed dentist or orthodontist. This ensures your new smile is enhanced and upholds the highest quality and standards within the industry.

How long after my scan will I receive my aligner treatment plan?

As soon as we receive your 3D scan, we create a custom treatment plan which shows a before and after 3D visualization of how your teeth shift during the treatment. Our Clearfy-affiliated orthodontist will review your treatment plan and once you approve your treatment plan, your aligners will be custom-fabricated within maximum 14 days.

How long is the typical treatment process?

Typically, between 6 to 12 months but your custom treatment plan is fully determined by our assigned licensed dentist or orthodontist who will determine the best plan for your needs. You will be able to access it before accepting treatment.

Can I use Clearfy invisible aligners on only my upper or lower teeth?

The state-licensed dentist or orthodontist assigned to your case will decide the safest and best treatment option for you. Typically, since moving your teeth changes your bite, we need to take both sets of teeth into account. However, your treatment plan will be specific to you and cases vary between each person.

Why don’t my aligners cover my molars?

Your aligners are custom fabricated to fit your mouth. Our goal is to make your aligners as unobtrusive as possible, so it might not be necessary to move your back teeth to get the results you want.

How often should I wear my aligners?

Wear your aligners as much as possible, only take them out for eating, drinking hot beverages and brushing your teeth. We recommend wear at least 22 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Will my teeth hurt during treatment?

You can expect a little bit of discomfort as you adjust to wearing your aligners. Particularly, you may expect to experience some tooth soreness for a few days after wearing new aligners. Don’t worry, as this is perfectly normal. Soreness is a sign that your aligners are working, gently shifting your teeth to their desired position. This soreness should gradually fade with time and consistent wear of new aligners.

Are there any visits to a dental office during treatment?

Aside from regularly scheduled stores visits to fallow up appointments and your regular dental cleanings, you should not expect extra dental office visits.

What happens if I lose an aligner?

Should you lose an aligner nearing the end of your scheduled stage of your treatment plan, it is alright for you to use the next stage’s aligner for the duration of the current stage plus the time scheduled for next stage. Otherwise, you can order a replacement right away. If you lose one of your aligners early into your scheduled stage, you will need to order a replacement immediately. The cost for replacements is $50 per tray. Your replacement aligner will generally be ready in 48 hours. During that time, you will need to wear the previous aligner to ensure that your teeth do not shift back to their original position. To order a replacement aligner, please contact our team.

What happens after my invisible aligner treatment is complete?

Protect your investment and wear your retainers! Without retainers, teeth tend to shift back to their original positions. Our custom-fit retainers’ costs $99 per set and are available to purchase toward the end of your treatment. For the first 6 months, you’ll need to wear them all the time (except when you eat, drink hot beverages or brush your teeth). After that, you should wear them while you sleep at night indefinitely. Call us to place your order about 5 weeks before you finish your treatment plan.

How do I preserve my new smile after treatment?

You'll need to wear a retainer regularly to maintain your new smile. For the first 6 months, you’ll need to wear them all the time (except when you eat, drink hot beverages or brush your teeth). After that, you can wear them only while you sleep at night. We recommend replacing your retainers every 6 months to keep them fresh.
