Take a ClearStep forward in Liverpool

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

Are you searching for a simple way of straightening your teeth? If so, why not take a ClearStep forward in Liverpool?

What is ClearStep?

ClearStep is a very simple, effective removable brace system, which uses a series of clear appliances to move the teeth and give you a gorgeous new smile. ClearStep braces, also known as aligners, are made from transparent plastic, so they can’t be seen when you smile. This means that you don’t have to worry about what you look like while you’re having treatment.

What does treatment involve?

ClearStep treatment uses a series of aligners to realign the teeth. You will be given a collection of bespoke braces, which have been manufactured based on your individual orthodontic prescription. You’ll wear each brace for around 2 weeks and then swap the aligner for the next in the sequence until treatment is complete.

ClearStep braces are removable, which gives you flexibility, but it’s so important to make sure you wear the aligners for the recommended time each day. If you don’t wear your braces for at least 21 hours per day, there’s a risk that you won’t get the results you wanted. ClearStep aligners are designed to be taken out for eating and cleaning the teeth.

Am I a good match for ClearStep?

ClearStep is ideally suited to those with minor or moderate needs. Removable braces are not usually the best option for complex cases, as they cannot provide the stability of fixed braces and the range of movement is more limited. If you have minor or moderate issues and you’re looking for a straightforward, discreet solution that will fit into your daily life seamlessly, call today to find out more!

The Benefits Of Removable Braces For Patients In Liverpool

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

Removable braces like ClearStep, Invisalign and Perfect Clear are excellent in terms of offering patients higher level of discretion during treatment. Removable aligners are an excellent solution when it comes to the straightening of teeth, although it’s true that some of the orthodontic problems would require fixed braces to have better tooth movement. Most of the simple treatments might be carried out using a removable appliance.


Removable aligners can be easily removed before eating. They give patients the opportunity to freely enjoy food and since the aligners are not worn during eating, debris doesn’t get stuck between the tooth and brace. This makes it easier to maintain dental hygiene and reduces the risk of decay and dental erosion. Dental hygiene is very difficult with fixed braces and because they cannot be removed even while eating, plaque is easily formed. Hence, patients with fixed braces will be required to brush their teeth after every meal; sticky and harsh food will create lot of problems.

Cleaning is easy

Removable aligners can be easily cleaned. As with the fixed braces, these do not have the hard to clean wires and brackets. You can clean them gently with a toothbrush after you soak them in glass of water for 15 minutes. A glass of water should be enough for this purpose.

Removable aligners can be removed for a photo session or when you are out for a special occasion. This way the patient will stay comfortable during their time out and will not need to stay conscious of the appearance of their mouth.

Since removable braces do not need dental glue or cement to attach them to the front area of the tooth, no marks or residue is left behind. So once the treatment is over, patients can simply remove the braces and enjoy the result of the treatment.
