The first day of orthodontic treatment can come as a shock—it takes a while for most people to get used to pressure being applied to their teeth. That’s why ClearCorrect begins with starter aligners, designed to apply gentle pressure before ramping up movement in later steps.
We introduced starter aligners a few years ago as part of "Phase Zero." Now we’re expanding that concept into the new Starter Kit, shipping today at the start of every case.
Along with starter aligners, you’ll get:
- a welcome letter for your patient with wear & care tips
- a storage case
- an OUTIE aligner removal tool
- a sample of OAP Cleaner
- and two Chewies to help seat the aligners.
Just pass everything on to your patient. If you want more of anything, it'll be available in our online store.
We won’t ask you to approve the fit of the starter aligners on ClearComm anymore—we’ll just send the treatment setup as soon as it’s ready, and you'll be free to approve it right away.
Your patient should wear the starter aligners just like any other step, and (assuming you approve a treatment setup) Phase 1 will be scheduled to arrive when they're done.
If you do find a problem with the fit of the starter aligners, you can handle it like any other phase—request a revision on ClearComm and send in new impressions or scans. We'll now accept revisions right up until the ship date of each phase, so you can request a revision even if Phase 1 has already entered production.
The Starter Kit is now included with all new cases at no additional charge.
