Getting a Straighter Smile With ClearCorrect®
ClearCorrect® is a teeth-straightening system that uses a series of transparent, custom-made, removable aligners to shift the teeth to their proper positions. It is an effective alternative to traditional braces and is an ideal choice for those seeking non-intrusive teeth-straightening treatment. Continue reading to find out how ClearCorrect can help correct your teeth’s alignment.
The dentist will send the patient’s entire dental record, including photographs, dental impressions, and a prescription for the custom aligners to the ClearCorrect lab. The technicians will produce a 3D replica of the teeth. The dental team will develop a treatment plan that outlines the alignment process from start to finish.
The dentist can estimate how the teeth will move from their current position to the desired position. Patients will be able to view a computerized rendition of their teeth before and after treatment. Once the dentist approves the design, the custom aligners will be produced with high precision.
How ClearCorrect works
The aligner treatment involves four stages. Patients will get a new set of aligners in each stage, which are worn for about three weeks. They will have to wear the aligners every hour of the day, except when brushing, flossing, eating, or drinking. The aligners are created for effective teeth straightening yet with aesthetic appeal. The aligners are transparent on the teeth and are not intrusive.
Upon completing the three-week wear period for each aligner set, patients should notice their teeth slowly adjusting and moving toward the proper position. Regular checkups with the dentist are necessary to monitor the progress and provide the next set of aligners. This routine will continue until the teeth reach their desired positions.
Treatment duration may last between 12 to 18 months, depending on the patient’s situation and the severity of dental misalignment. Patients need to meet with the dentist for a consultation to know their ideal ClearCorrect option. The different options available include:
- Unlimited, where patients get as many aligners as required to straighten their teeth
- Limited 6, where patients get six sets of aligners
- Limited 12, where 12 sets of clear aligners are provided
Candidacy for ClearCorrect
Adults and teenagers alike can get ClearCorrect for a straighter smile. The dentist will need to evaluate the patient’s condition to know if this option would be effective for them. The evaluation processes may include taking dental X-rays and impressions to see how the teeth align. ClearCorrect is effective for orthodontic issues such as gaps between teeth, overbites, underbites, crooked teeth, and crowded teeth. The treatment is not one-size-fits-all. The aligners are custom-made for the patient’s teeth to ensure that the aligners work without causing significant discomfort or irritation.
