3D Printed Clear Aligners & 3D Bite Scan

A discreet way to achieve your dream smile

While traditional metal braces can straighten your teeth, correct your bite, and improve your smile, there is an alternative option. With 3D printed clear aligners, you can achieve the smile of your dreams in a discreet, comfortable manner

Dr. Amin Samadian is pleased to offer 3D printed clear aligners from SureSmile, Invisalign, ClearCorrect, and a number of other providers to his patients. They can allow you to restore your confidence and fall in love with your smile. 

To evaluate a patient’s bite and teeth alignment and determine the best treatment plan, Dr. Samadian utilizes 3D bite scans. With one of these scans, you can learn about any bite issues you may have and get on the road to treating them.

What are 3D printed clear aligners?

With a series of clear, removable aligners that are backed by a 5-year warranty, you can gradually straighten your teeth to their ideal positions. It’s important to understand that clear aligners are simply a tool that allows you to achieve your desired results. 

Dr. Samadian’s deep understanding of cosmetic dentistry, gum recession process, tooth wear patterns, clenching and grinding, TMJ and sleep apnea is what will allow the aligners to their job properly. 

What is a 3D bite scan?

A 3D bite scan is a type of orthodontic scan that allows Dr. Amin Samadian to take a precise 3D digital scan of your teeth and bite. It removes the need for him to take impressions and gives him an accurate 3D image of your teeth and bite so he can design the ideal treatment plan for your diagnosis. Dr. Samadian’s office utilizes the highest level of technology possible for this 3D imaging. When using the bite scan for diagnosis for clear aligners, Dr. Samadian may combine it with 3D printing technology and 3D x-rays (Cone Beam CT scan).

What do 3D printed clear aligners & bite scans involve?

Dr. Amin Samadian will use the 3D bite scan to create a model of your teeth so that he can analyze your bite from every angle. Then, he’ll use this model and state-of-the-art treatment software to precisely calculate the movement of each of your teeth. With Dr. Samadian’s in-house lab, everything can be taken care of directly in the practice and doesn’t require visits to other doctors.

Next, Dr. Samadian and his team of specialists will design a customized treatment plan and provide you with your aligners and detailed instructions on how to wear them. You’ll likely be given between 6 to 10 aligners and only need to visit our office once every three months. 

Dr. Samadian will prescribe as many aligners as you need to achieve perfect results.

Are 3D printed clear aligners or bite scans painful?

3D bite scans do not cause any pain or discomfort. In fact, many patients report they are far more comfortable than impressions. 

At first, you may face a bit of discomfort when you put your aligners in your mouth. The good news is that this discomfort will quickly disappear once your mouth and teeth get used to them. After some time, you may even forget the aligners are in your mouth. 

What results will I see?

Once you complete your treatment with clear aligners, you’ll enjoy straight teeth and a beautiful smile. While treatment time will depend on your specific case, it typically takes anywhere from six months to two years. Once you’ve completed your treatment, you’ll be required to wear a retainer at night to ensure your teeth don’t move back to their original positions.
