What are DM Clear Aligners?

DMA Clear Aligner Therapy includes several sets of tight fitting, custom made clear plastic aligners made of invisible, BPA-free plastic aligners that apply subtle pressure to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. The trays are thin, light weight and nearly invisible when worn; many people won't know you're wearing them.

How do DM Clear Aligners straighten teeth?

Our clear aligners come in multiple sets. Each aligner makes a slight adjustment to your teeth positioning, a process that is both clinically and digitally designed by a DMA approved Clear Aligner dentists and on site orthodontists in our labs. Each set of clear aligners, advances you to the next stage of teeth straightening and a new smile.

How are DM Clear Aligners made?

Our DM aligner process commences with a professional intraoral consult and scan at one of our Scanning centers. Extremely accurate and high resolution scans of your teeth are taken by a DMA certified nurse. We then upload your digital impression imagery through our web portal. Your individual digital treatment plan design is created and available for our Orthodontist final review and approval. Your individual DMA 3D Clear Aligner print production commences. Shipping and delivery is then organised for your sets of tailor made 3D digitally designed aligner trays to arrive in sequence as prescribed for collection. Your treatment journey commences.
