Teeth Straighter, No Metal Required
Remember the days when orthodontics meant metal brackets and wires? Now, ClearCorrect enables people just like you and your family members to fix crooked teeth in a more private way.
ClearCorrect uses thin, plastic aligners to gradually move your teeth into proper position. The results happen over time, and the aligners blend right in to your natural smile. Unless you tell people you are wearing clear braces, no one will know!
Getting straight teeth is not just about appearance; it is about the health and wellbeing of your mouth. Straight teeth are easier to clean, and they offer fewer places to bacteria to hide. This means a reduced likelihood of periodontal disease.
Smile! You Have Invisalign, ClearCorrect, and MTM aligners on Your Side!”
These clear aligner systems all work similarly but have different costs and parameters for their use. ClearCorrect braces work like other clear braces. After a mold is taken of your mouth, 3D software is used to uniquely create aligner models to gently move your teeth into place. You will receive the aligners in groups, and each aligner should be worn for about two weeks, or as directed by your dentist.
Your teeth will slowly move and be held in place by the aligners, which are to be worn except when you are eating or brushing/flossing your teeth. Some discomfort may occur when a new aligner is first put into place, but over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen typically are the only painkillers needed to handle a bit of aching in the teeth and jaw.
Depending upon your particular case, you may wear your clear aligners for a year or longer. After you have used your clear aligners and your smile is perfect, you will be fitted for a retainer, which should be worn every night for life. The retainer will assist your teeth in staying in the right positions.
