What is Clearstep?

Clear Step™ is a breakthrough in orthodontics. We offer a range of orthodontic solutions for our patients. Clearstep straightens teeth using a series of ‘clear’ easy to wear postioners, like thin rugby or sports guards.

How does the system work?

Clear Step™ uses an advanced laboratory procedure developed over the last five years. The system combines the diagnostic and treatment planning expertise of the dentist and couples it with the new plastic Clear Step™ system of positioners. The system moves teeth in precisely planned and accurate incremental steps using a series of custom-made clear positioners.

As you replace each positioner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position the dentist has prescribed.

You will visit the dentist approximately once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

Total treatment time averages 11 months with the average number of aligners worn during treatment between 18 and 30. This of course will vary from case to case.

The aligners are made through a combination of the dentist’s expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology provided by the Clearstep company.

If you you are concerned about the alignement of your teeth, would like to improve the appearance of unwanted gaps and spaces between your teeth with orthodontic treatment or require teeth straightening treatment don’t hesitate to contact us.

We will also be happy to discuss any aspect of your dental health – we don’t charge for giving advice!
