[VIDEO] Learn how KiyoClear Aligners and Expanders work together to create beautiful smiles.
Born in Japan and now available in the U.S., the KiyoClear Technique was developed by Dr. Masaru Ishigame, an orthodontist with over 30 years of experience. He developed the KiyoClear Technique with this unique aligner-expander system which in many cases eliminates the need for IPR and attachments.
Based on the TVAP Theory, treating the Transverse, then the Vertical, and finally the Anterior-Posterior, the KiyoClear Technique incorporates expansion with precision tooth movement for both teens and adults.
Regardless of what aligner system you currently use, the KiyoClear Aligner System is an excellent addition to your practice for patients with excessive crowding or who could benefit from a broader dental arch.
The technique behind the KiyoClear System was developed by Masaru Ishigame D.D.S., Ph.D., an orthodontist practicing in Tokyo who also teaches at the Iwate Medical University School of Dentistry Department of Orthodontics.
During his 30-year career, Dr. Ishigame has treated thousands of patients with aligners. It was this experience that motivated him to develop this unique approach which integrated a removable expander with aligners to create space in crowded dental arches.
Dr. Ishigame saw the need for extensive IPR and attachments as a major drawback of many aligner treatments because it decreased patient satisfaction and increased the amount of chair time required during treatment. He wanted to offer his patients a more natural approach that would preserve their teeth and leave them with broad, beautiful smiles.
The KiyoClear Technique combines aligners with removable expanders for adults and teens. Designed to accommodate active lifestyles, patients wear the removable expanders only at night. The unique aligner-expander combination creates space and moves teeth simultaneously, while preserving the natural tooth enamel.
