What is the advantage of CLEARalign versus similar clear aligners on the market?
CLEARalign is specifically designed to treat mild-to-moderate anterior cases. With a more specific patient focus, we can offer an option that is significantly more affordable than broader-targeted systems such as Invisalign.
In a typical practice how many patients will qualify for CLEARalign?
If you are a general dentist, about 70 to 80% of your patients will qualify for CLEARalign treatment.
Do I get billed for anything if my patient case does not qualify for CLEARalign?
No, if a patient is determined not to be a candidate for treatment, you are not billed.
How long does a patient wear a CLEARalign tray?
The trays are designed to be worn for two weeks at a time. Depending on the age of the patient, their teeth may move slower or faster, so it is possible to need to change trays between 1 and 3 weeks.
What is included in the Treatment Plan?
1. Number of Trays
2. Before and After 3D simulations
3. Patient Information
4. IPR and Attachment Chart
5. Tooth Movement Report
What is the average number of trays required per case?
13 to 14 trays per arch is the average. For the most complex cases, up to 28 trays per arch may be required, but it is not common.
What records do doctors need to get started?
To get started, please submit to ROE:
- Patient photographs
- Completed CLEARalign Rx form
- IOS or PVS impressions
- (Optional) X-Rays
