With an average treatment of 6 months to a new confident smile, it’s no wonder why more and more people are turning to Active Aligners as their clear choice for clear braces.

Active Aligners work on basic orthodontic principles. They are used for the correction of crooked teeth, gaps or rotation, while achieving the desired results in an organized and planned fashion. These customized trays are “invisible” and move the tooth in the desired direction. This is achieved through wearing a series of Active Aligners, each for 22 hours a day, 1 to 2 weeks at a time (one stage), which move the teeth per stage until their optimal alignment has been reached.

Not sure what Active Aligners are?

Prescribed by your dental professional, Active Aligners are clear aligners that have been developed specifically for aligning your teeth in a predictable, smooth, clear and comfortable manner. Instead of metal brackets, wires or screws, you’ll be wearing a thermoplastic material to achieve your desired results – while going unnoticed by the people around you.

The Active Aligners team pay meticulous attention to detail, combining the latest technology with expert treatment planning and are constantly pioneering and researching to produce world class Active Aligners at an affordable price with no compromises in quality.

Don’t Jeopardize Your Teeth

Direct to consumer orthodontics / clear aligners are being heavily marketed in many parts of the world and results are coming back from patients, poor fitting aligners, patients ending with edge to edge bites, posterior open bites and the list goes on.

IPR is often required to resolve crowding, and for proper rotation of teeth sometimes attachments are required. These procedures can only be performed by a dental professional. Teeth straightening is not something that just changes the position of your teeth or look. It’s actually a procedure that needs clinical approval and supervision so that you the patient is not left with a jeopardized bite. We believe that clear aligner therapy is something that doctors need to oversee, as unpleasant outcomes from DTC models come at the expense of you the consumer.

Treatments require professional supervision as orthodontic or dental procedures may be required, which only your dental professional is able to perform.

Interproximal Reduction (IPR), a regular orthodontic procedure where small amounts of tooth surface between teeth is removed to create space to fix crowding or odd shaped teeth. Mainly used to stop patients from having an edge to edge bite.

Buttons – Attachments, small amounts of composite boned to teeth to give the clear aligners force or traction to push or pull on which assists in the rotation and movement of teeth.
