Frequently asked questions

Q: How much does CThru cost?

A: CThru is one of the most competitive clear aligner systems available. Prices could start from as little as £1,500, however your clinician will be able to give you a cost, which will be based on your specific need for treatment. And flexible finance is available, so you can stage payments.

Q: Are CThru aligners really see-through?

A: Completely. They are made of transparent, lightweight plastic, so they are barely visible.

Q: Will they affect my speech?

A: No, because the aligner fits over your teeth without obstructing the tongue.

Q: Is there an age limit for CThru treatment?

A: As long as you are over 16 and all the adult teeth are in place, there is no age limit to receiving CThru treatment.

Q: Does CThru hurt?

A: No. They should fit comfortably, because each aligner is designed especially for you and your mouth. They apply a gentle pressure you will soon get used to.

Q: Are the aligners fixed in?

A: No – you can remove them easily, as you will need to take them out while you eat, brush and floss.

Q: How long does treatment usually take?

A: The average is 6-12 months, depending on how much movement you want and how many ‘stages’ you need to go through (which will affect how many aligners we need to make).

Q: Do I need to come in to my clinician throughout treatment?

A: Yes, you’ll need to come in every 6-8 weeks to check on progress and make sure everything is progressing well.

Q: What do I do next?

A: If you want to know more, speak to your clinician or a CThru provider who can arrange for a CThru Review. Then they’ll be able to tell you approximately how long your treatment will take and how much it will cost.
