Today, you have many options when it comes to straightening misaligned teeth with orthodontics. Well-aligned teeth can boost your self-confidence and positively impact your quality of life — no matter your age. Yet straighter teeth don’t just look better, they function better, too. Properly aligned teeth allow you to bite, chew and speak more effectively. Straight teeth are also easier to clean, which reduces your risk for tooth decay and gum disease.
Traditionally, metal braces have been used for correcting crooked teeth. While many adults love the idea of a smile that reveals straight teeth, the thought of wearing noticeable wires and brackets prevents them from getting treatment altogether. Thankfully, dentistry today has an option known as ClearCorrect — a perfect clear braces orthodontic treatment for patients who desire the same great results as conventional braces, but without the obvious mouthful of metal.
What Is ClearCorrect?
ClearCorrect is a revolutionary teeth-straightening system that uses a series of transparent, plastic aligners to move your teeth into proper alignment. The aligners are custom-created from digital impressions of your mouth. Like traditional braces, ClearCorrect clear aligners can treat a wide variety of issues that keep people from achieving straight teeth — including crowded, crooked and gapped teeth — but without the use of metal wires and brackets.
Throughout treatment, patients will use several sets of clear teeth aligners that are carefully crafted to make precise adjustments to their teeth alignment. Each set of aligners is designed to be worn for two weeks at a time before being changed for the next set in the series. Over time, your teeth gradually move into their optimal position as our dentists monitor treatment and make any needed adjustments.
Benefits of ClearCorrect Dental Treatment
A major benefit of ClearCorrect aligners is that they are discreet enough to go unnoticed by friends and family. For this reason, ClearCorrect is a popular teeth-straightening option among adults who desire a more aesthetically pleasing option for straightening their teeth.
Another advantage of ClearCorrect is that it is easy to maintain healthy oral hygiene habits during treatment. While metal brackets and wires used with traditional braces are difficult to clean around, with ClearCorrect, simply remove your clear aligners to resume your normal brushing and flossing routines. Since ClearCorrect aligners are removable, you are also able to continue eating your favorite foods.
Finally, ClearCorrect invisible braces are made of smooth plastic and are comfortable to wear. There’s no risk of cuts or abrasions to your mouth like with traditional braces.
Am I a Candidate for ClearCorrect?
If you are looking for alternatives to Invisalign®, then ClearCorrect might be a good option for you. Many patients can benefit from ClearCorrect treatment. Good candidates include patients who:
- Are seeking a more discreet orthodontic treatment
- Have crooked, crowded or gapped teeth
- Are self-disciplined to wear and care for their aligners throughout treatment
While ClearCorrect is an effective solution for many spacing and bite issues, it isn’t always the best option for severe cases, such as jaw misalignment. Your dentist will conduct a thorough evaluation of your teeth and recommend the treatment plan that is best for your goals and needs.
