Krystal Klear is a clear aligner system used to straighten teeth as an alternative to traditional braces. Similar to other clear aligner brands (like Invisalign), Krystal Klear aligners straighten teeth using a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that over time, move your teeth, eventually correcting them as well as your smile to elicit a new, rejuvenated look.
The “treatment set-up,” a computerized representation of your teeth before and after treatment, is available for viewing after treatment planning. You receive your treatment set-up by email and respond with your approval or any adjustment requests. Using the most up-to-date digital mapping and molding technology, custom aligners then are created with computer precision.
Krystal Klear treatment involves four phases of aligner therapy. Each phase requires a new set of aligners that are worn for a two-week period. The time between each phase allows for control and flexibility.
Krystal Klear aligners are worn all the time, except when eating and drinking, or while brushing and flossing. Designed with aesthetics in mind, the aligners are barely noticeable and won’t have an impact on your daily routine.
After wearing each aligner set, results will be noticeable as your teeth begin slowly adjusting and aligning to your desired smile. Periodic check-ups with your dentist are required so your progress can be evaluated and you can be given the next set of aligners. This sequence will continue until you have achieved your new smile.
Treatment time can vary from one to two years, depending upon your specific condition and degree of misalignment. There are three treatment options available:
Unlimited: Patients are provided with as many aligners needed to complete the case.
Limited 12: Patients are provided with 12 sets of aligners.
Limited 6: Patients are provided with 6 sets of aligners.
Krystal Klear aligners currently are available to treat adults and teenagers. Children who might not have all of their molars and senior citizens who present with more complicated dental cases also may be candidates for Krystal Klear aligners, but should consult with their dentists to determine the treatment option that best suits their needs.
Krystal Klear Aligners can be used to treat the following orthodontic conditions:
- Crowded teeth
- Spacing between teeth
- Crooked or turned (rotated) teeth
