Clear Aligners in Downtown Edmonton

No brackets. No wires. More smiles

Who needs Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are a popular choice for individuals seeking orthodontic treatment. You might benefit from clear aligners if you have these problems:

Spaces or Gaps Between Teeth: If you have noticeable gaps between your teeth, clear aligners can help close those spaces and create a more uniform smile.

Overlapping Teeth: When your teeth are too close together and overlap, clear aligners can gradually shift them into proper alignment.

Discomfort When Clenching Teeth: If you experience pain or discomfort when clenching your teeth, it could be due to misaligned teeth. Clear aligners can address this issue and improve your bite.

Clear aligners offer several advantages over traditional braces, including their discreet appearance, comfort, and the ability to remove them for eating, brushing, and flossing. Several companies provide clear aligner treatments in Canada, making them an accessible and cost-effective alternative to braces.


Clear Aligners FAQs

  1. Discreet and Comfortable: One of the most significant advantages of clear aligners is their virtually invisible appearance. Clear aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth, eliminating the discomfort of wire adjustments. 

  2. Removable: The ability to remove your aligners is perhaps one of the most praised features. This flexibility allows you to eat, drink, brush, and floss without the obstacles braces might present, promoting better oral health and making the treatment process far more manageable.

  3. Less Food or Lifestyle Restrictions: With clear aligners, there are no off-limits foods or adjustments to your lifestyle needed. 

  4. Fewer Dentist Visits: Clear aligner treatment typically requires fewer visits to the orthodontist than traditional braces. These streamlined appointments focus on progress checks and receiving your next set of aligners, saving you time and making the treatment process more convenient.

On average, clear aligner treatment takes approximately 6 to 18 months to complete. However, the duration can vary significantly depending on several factors:

  1. Severity of Misalignment: Mild to moderate cases may require a shorter treatment than more complex cases involving significant crowding or malocclusion.
  2. Compliance and Wear Time: Consistency and adherence to wearing the aligners as prescribed are crucial for achieving optimal results within the estimated timeframe. Failing to wear the aligners for the recommended duration each day may prolong the treatment.
  3. Treatment Plan: Each clear aligner treatment plan is customized to address your unique needs. Some plans may involve more stages or require additional refinements, affecting the overall treatment duration.

Remember that individual experiences may vary.


Clear aligners may take some getting used to, but most people find that their speech is not significantly affected.

Clear aligners, with their discreet and nearly invisible appearance, are designed to be inconspicuous. Most people won’t readily notice that you’re wearing them.
