Additional Treatment Procedures

Some cases may require IPR or attachments in order to fully align the teeth. If your case does require additional treatment you will be given this information along with your 3D treatment plan after your Initial Assessment. There will be a small additional cost for IPR and attachments to pay for your chair time at the clinic. Not sure what IPR and attachments are, or how they work? Take a look below.

Interproximal Reduction (IPR)

Opting for Bitesoft Clear Aligners to correct your teeth alignment may involve your cosmetic dentist initially preparing your teeth to guarantee sufficient space for movement and enhance your bite. One technique employed for this preparation is interproximal reduction (IPR), also known as stripping or enamel reduction. This minimally invasive procedure utilizes flexible strips or a diamond-coated disc to delicately eliminate small amounts of enamel in crowded areas or around crowded teeth. This allows your clear aligners to facilitate more effective movement of the teeth. It’s a quick and painless process that’s only performed on certain teeth for an overall better result.
