Frequently Asked Questions
Our clear aligner treatment includes several sets of tight-fitting, custom-made, clear aligners. They straighten your teeth by gradually shifting teeth into their desired position. This is achieved by wearing your multiple sets of aligners as prescribed in your treatment plan.
It has been shown that the material used during clear aligner treatment can have a drastic influence on the success and experience of a treatment course. Stiff materials can cause pain and discomfort. Other clear aligners use thermoplastics which is a stiff material and can cause pain and discomfort. These lower grade materials also can’t offer the same consistent tooth moving force over time as treatment progresses, these materials weaken and ultimately lower one’s chances of completing a successful alignment. These lower grade thermoplastic materials are also have a much higher chance of breaking and stainage. The secret to our superior performance and comfort is our premium Zendura FLX material with an elastomeric inner layer encased in a unique dual shell construction.

After treatment you should wear a retainer regularly to maintain your new smile. We include one free retainer set with your Beam clear aligner purchase. We recommend for the first 2 weeks after treatment you wear them 24 hours a day (except for eating and drinking). After that initial two week period, we recommend you wear your retainers only while you sleep. We recommend you replace your retainers every 6 months to keep them fresh. We sell high quality retainers and even offer a subscription for your convenience, although feel free to purchase whatever is most convenient for you.
