OrthoFX Questions and Answers

OrthoFX is a series of clear aligner trays worn one week at a time that gradually shifts your teeth into the ideal position. The technologically advanced aligners are custom made for your teeth, gentle, stain-resistant, and effective.

1. What can I expect during treatment?

OrthoFX is a convenient, comfortable orthodontic option for treatment. The aligners are aesthetic and nearly invisible when you’re wearing them. Each aligner will be worn for 22 hours a day. Remove to eat, drink or brush your teeth. In most cases, you’ll wear each set of aligners a week at a time.

2. What is included in an OrthoFX Treatment?

Our FXTetra™ High-Tech aligners are games changers as well as smile changers. Included in your treatment:
• All doctor visits, 3D teeth scans, clinical records, and all clear aligners.
• A satisfaction guarantee from when you start treatment.
• Free replacement aligners and one free set of retainers.
• Glo Whitening
• Always In-Person Doctor Care or Virtual Treatment options available.

3. Are there dental conditions that prevent me from using OrthoFX Aligners?

In your initial consultation, we will evaluate your oral health for treatment. In general, if you have maintained regular dental hygiene appointments and have good oral health, OrthoFX may be a good option for you. If you have active periodontal disease, missing teeth, or active dental decay we will evaluate your condition and make recommendations before you can begin treatment. Patient safety and responsible care are important to our office.

4. What happens if I lose or break an aligner?

We know things happen. Replacement aligners, while you are in treatment, are included in your satisfaction guarantee. This does not include the replacement of final retainers. Simply contact OrthoFX Customer care at 415-936-0006 or email OrthoFX at support@orthofx.com with your name, phone number, and your city.

5. What are retainers?

After you have finished with your OrthoFX active treatment aligners and you’ve achieved your beautiful new smile, you want to protect your investment. A retainer will be worn daily according to our doctor’s instruction to keep your teeth in perfect alignment and your first set of retainers is included in your treatment. Our FXTetra Bright Retainers have a materials technology that makes your perfect smile appear whiter and brighter. We know you’ll love wearing your retainer.
