How Does It Work
1) GETTING STARTED
You'll start off by locating a ClearPath Certified Doctor, or by letting your doctor know about ClearPath.
You and your doctor will then evaluate your teeth and talk about any problems or goals you have for your smile. Once you and your doctor establish that ClearPath is the right treatment option for you, your doctor will take impressions, photos, and x-rays of your teeth that ClearPath uses in manufacturing your custom aligners.
2) YOUR CUSTOM TREATMENT PLAN
Your doctor sends your records — your impressions, photos, and x-rays — to ClearPath with a prescription for your custom aligners. ClearPath uses your records to create exact 3D models of your teeth. Then working with your doctor at every step, and following the precise instructions provided on your prescription, ClearPath maps out a complete treatment plan of gradual adjustment that takes your teeth from where they are currently to where you and your doctor want them to end up.
Once completed, you and your doctor will be able to preview the projected results of your treatment in your "treatment set-up," a computer representation of your teeth before and after treatment.
3) YOUR ALIGNERS ARE COMPUTER CRAFTED
When you and your doctor are satisfied with the projected results shown in your treatment set-up, the manufacturing process begins. Using the latest digital mapping and molding technology, ClearPath creates your custom aligners with computer precision. ClearPath then sends your aligners to your doctor for delivery to you.
4) PROGRESS WEARING YOUR ALIGNERS
You are advised to wear your aligners all the time, except while eating and drinking or during daily tooth care, such as brushing and flossing.
Your ClearPath aligners are so clear they are barely noticeable so they won't have an impact on your day to day life.
Aligner by aligner, you'll be able to see the difference as your teeth slowly adjust and align to your target smile.
You'll visit your doctor periodically for checkups to see how you're progressing until you eventually have the great smile you've always wanted.
