What To Expect

No one will deny that braces are an excellent way to straighten your teeth, correct the alignment of your bite, or both. But brackets and wires are not your only choice to transform your smile in modern dentistry.

Clear aligners, such as those used with ClearCorrect, can fix a number of issues, just like braces. These include:

  • Overbites and underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth

Clear aligners have proven to be effective on each of these problems. And like braces, they can correct multiple issues at the same time.

If you choose this treatment, you will receive a series of custom-made aligners. Each aligner is meant to be worn for a few weeks at a time. Each time you switch to a new one, you will be moving your teeth closer to their final positions.

As with braces, you should wear a retainer at the end of your treatment to keep your teeth in the new, straighter places in your mouth.

The Aligner Advantage

As we’ve noted, aligners can work as well as braces for many people. It’s also worth pointing out that ClearCorrect also offers some benefits that you won’t get with traditional braces.

First and foremost, the aligners are transparent. Each aligner is a single piece of clear plastic. Since they are molded to match your teeth at each step of your treatment, they blend in with your teeth instead of standing out like braces.

Seconda, the aligners are more comfortable than braces. As we said, the aligners are made of a single piece of plastic. This means no small parts to break or come loose (which can poke into your cheeks, lips, or gums). It also means you don’t have individual brackets that could irritate the soft tissues of your mouth.

Third, the aligners can be removed. Now, you should wear them a vast majority of the time, but you can take them out during meals and your daily oral hygiene routine. This means you can keep eating what you want, and you can continue to brush and floss like you do today.
