Why Choose ClearCorrect?
The Benefits of ClearCorrect
The top benefit of ClearCorrect is that it’s difficult to see. It can perform many of the same functions as braces but for very misaligned teeth, ClearCorrect will not be the best option. On the other hand, patients report that ClearCorrect is more comfortable than traditional braces and, since the tray is removable, patients can still enjoy a wide variety of foods without worrying about the foods getting stuck in their braces or needing to perform complex teeth maintenance to prevent plaque buildup. Similarly, the plastic is less irritating to your gums than braces which can hurt and cause sores.
ClearCorrect can perform many of the same functions as braces but it can’t replace them entirely. ClearCorrect can correct a number of alignment issues. These include twisted or crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, crowded teeth, overbites, and underbites. In some cases, ClearCorrect can be used to correct issues related to TMJ, reducing symptoms.
For teeth that are very misaligned, there are other options available. These include traditional braces, invisible braces, and more. On the other hand, if you have the option of going with ClearCorrect, it’s the best solution for teeth that are moderately misaligned. Patients report that they are more comfortable than traditional braces, require less maintenance, and don’t prevent them from enjoying their favorite foods.
Given the numerous advantages the ClearCorrect system boasts over traditional orthodontics, it has become the tooth-aligning treatment of choice for many patients.
The ClearCorrect Experience
When you come to the Peak Family Dental Care office, we will perform a simple examination of your teeth and assess whether or not ClearCorrect is the ideal means of aligning them. Our doctors can determine how your teeth need to be maneuvered to achieve the ideal alignment. We will then take a series of 3D x-rays which are sent to a ClearCorrect laboratory and used to create your aligners.
Numerous patients have shown excellent results with ClearCorrect. The best part is, that these results can be achieved with less discomfort than traditional braces and you don’t have to go through the aesthetic nightmare of traditional braces.
Once your aligners are made, they will be sent to our office and we will set up a follow-up appointment. You will get your first aligner. You will have to wear the aligner for at least 22 hours of the day. You should only remove the aligners while eating or when brushing your teeth. The aligners will be replaced every three weeks. While different patients will have different timelines, most cases can be resolved in 12 to 18 months.
