Clear aligners are also known as invisible aligners. They are an orthodontic form of treatment that corrects crooked or misaligned teeth. Clear aligners are an invisible and detachable alternative to braces. They are designed to enhance flexibility and convenience.

Beam clear aligners are custom-built. This means that they are built according to specification, depending on the severity of your malocclusion (teeth misalignment).

Clear aligners in Australia can treat different cases, like:

  • Open bites 
  • Crowded teeth
  • Underbites
  • Overbites
  • Diastema
  • Misaligned primary teeth

A look at clear aligners in Australia

Vacuum-formed clear thermoplastic sheets came into the picture in the 1980s. At first, they were used as retainers, but later, it became clear that these devices were highly effective in realigning teeth. These devices have been named “clear aligners.”


Align Technology came on board in the 1990s with their Invisalign clear aligners. They produced the first set of aligners that had the capability of correcting orthodontic problems in children, teens, and adults.

Are Beam clear aligners the same as Invisalign? Well, the truth is that, while both are clear aligners made of plastic, they aren’t identical. There are some unique differences between both. You must understand the differences between Beam clear aligners and Invisalign so you can make the right decision on which to use for your own personal circumstances. 

Beam Clear Aligners

This straightening method involves wearing a clear aligner for a set period. Our aligners are made of a BPA Free plastic material. You will need to wear Beam Clear aligners for at least 22 hours per day.

Beam Clear aligners must be changed periodically. The frequency at which you will change the aligner, as well as the number of aligners you’ll need, depends on how severe your condition is, as well as the type of treatment.

Beam clear aligners and Invisalign have similar treatment setups. However, one of the key differences aside from affordability, is Beam teeth straightening can be achieved from the comfort of your home, while Invisalign requires multiple in-person appointments.

How can you preserve clear aligners?

A common question we get about clear aligners from patients is how can you best take care of your clear aligners. Here’s our tips:

  • Rinse your clear aligners with lukewarm or with cold water after removal. Clear aligners should not be cleaned with hot water because they are susceptible to damage from heat.
  • Brush and floss your teeth with water before wearing the aligner.
  • Soak your aligners in denture cleaner.
  • Never eat with your aligners on.
  • Aligners should be cleaned with mild soap. It is not right to clean them with toothpaste.
