When someone has orthodontic problems, it affects more than the way their smile looks. Crooked or crowded teeth are harder to clean, which increases the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. An incorrect bite can cause problems such as difficulty chewing, jaw pain, and grinding or clenching of the teeth. Also, the appearance of the teeth can affect self-confidence and cause embarrassment.
Sometimes, people avoid treatment because they don’t want to deal with traditional braces. If you need orthodontic treatment, ClearCorrect™ may be the clear choice for restoring your smile.
ClearCorrect™ can get the same results as traditional braces with a clear advantage. The system uses a sequence of clear removable aligners created with 3D imaging technology to straighten the teeth.
The custom-made aligners are replaced every two weeks, in most cases. With each set of aligners, your teeth are gradually guided until they reach their ideal position. And we must see you a few times during treatment to track your progress.
ClearCorrect™ can help the following orthodontic conditions:
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked or rotated teeth
Benefits of ClearCorrect™ Over Traditional Braces
Removable — Take the aligners out to eat, drink, brush, and floss, or to clean them.
Barely Noticeable — The aligners are almost invisible, which allows you to maintain your regular appearance during treatment.
No Food Restrictions — You can eat the foods you enjoy throughout your treatment. There is no list of foods to avoid.
Better Oral Hygiene — You can brush and floss your teeth freely without maneuvering around wires and brackets.
More Comfort — Treatment is more comfortable because you don’t have brackets or wires causing mouth irritation.
Easy Maintenance — Rinse your aligners when you take them out. They can be washed with clear antibacterial soap and soaked in a cleaning solution for at least 20 minutes a day.
For the best results, wear your ClearCorrect™ aligners as instructed for a minimum of 22 hours daily. When treatment ends, you must wear a retainer to keep the teeth in their new position. To find out if ClearCorrect™ is right for you, contact our office to schedule a consultation.
