Frequently asked questions

TrioClear™ is a three-step clear aligner solution. It shifts your teeth in to position gradually through three stages. Each stage has three varying levels of aligner thickness (from 0.5mm to 0.7mm) and hardness, making sure your journey to your best smile is comfortable and pain free. Thanks to our TrioDim Force™ Technology and extended gum coverage, TrioClear™ uses minimal attachments – so they’re virtually invisible.
Your dentist will use 3D scanners or PVS materials to obtain the impressions of your teeth once you are confirmed a suitable candidate for TrioClear treatment. We will then digitise your results and create a proposal regarding your teeth movement. Your dentist will then review with you on the expected outcome. Once the proposal is settled, we will begin manufacturing your TrioClear kit and ship it directly to the clinic. Your dentist will then follow up on your treatment and our team will provide additional support as well. Please consult with your dentist or contact us if more information is needed.
TrioClear is designed to cover most of the cases. For detailed information, please talk to your dentist.

No. However it is normal to feel some pressure during the first stage of the treatment. This means that the aligners are starting to shift your teeth. The feeling should disappear gradually in a couple of days. If this is not the case, please contact your dentist immediately.
Our products are designed specifically for each patient, so they affect you in the least extent. But you may need a couple of days in order to get used to the feeling of having the aligners in your mouth. If you are not feeling comfortable, please check with your doctor.
It depends on different cases. Please consult with your doctor for more detail.
Generally speaking, it is not a problem to eat or drink with your aligners on your teeth. But we recommend you to take them off when consuming chewy, sticky food or drinks.
Gently brush the aligners with a soft toothbrush and lukewarm water or mild soap. Don’t use toothpaste or other harmful ingredients such as bleach or rubbing alcohol as they can damage the aligners.
Your dentist may prescribe you a fixed retainer to hold the teeth at the optimal finished position. You may also need to wear additional refinement aligners in order to perfect your smile. Please consult your dentist after the finished treatment.
Please consult your dentist about the cost of treatment and payment plans.

Contact your dentist immediately.
Extended gingival coverage (covering more of your gum) means the aligners are less visible and more of the surface area is covered for people with short crown height – giving you better results.
Yes, please consult your dentist for more information.
For the best outcome, you should follow the treatment plan your dentist customised for you. But discuss any questions and concerns with your dentist.
As long as you wear our Retainers properly after TrioClear™ treatment, your new smile will be permanent. Consult your dentist about how long you’ll need to wear retainers for ultimate results.
Clear aligners aren’t designed for long-term wear, so we don’t advise that you use them instead of a retainer. We recommend using our customised Retainers for best results.
Contact your dentist immediately to see what may be causing the problem.
Use dental chewies to wear the aligners and dental remover to take them off. Follow the instructions included in your TrioClear™ aligner kit.
Yes, hot temperatures may affect your TrioClear™ aligner. You should not eat or drink anything with your aligners in (except room temperature water), as it can damage them or cause a chemical reaction.
