What Is ClearCorrect®?
ClearCorrect® offers patients with mild to moderate dental misalignment a more affordable way to achieve a straighter smile. There are many benefits to ClearCorrect® treatment when compared to traditional braces and other orthodontic options, and understanding what ClearCorrect® is and how it works can help you decide whether it is right for you.
An overview of ClearCorrect®
Anyone who is not happy with the alignment of their smile due to a minor to moderately sized misalignment should consider how ClearCorrect can benefit them. The following is a complete review of ClearCorrect, including insights into how the process works, how it is beneficial, who makes an ideal candidate, and how to care for teeth properly during treatment.
ClearCorrect is a type of clear aligner treatment that utilizes custom-crafted transparent trays that fit over teeth to pull them into better alignment. ClearCorrect aligners are essentially invisible to others, so patients can straighten their smile discreetly. The process typically starts with a consultation visit. On the visit, the patient and the dentist can discuss the treatment option then take dental impressions to allow for the customization of the aligners. Once the ClearCorrect aligners arrive, the patient can begin treatment, which can take anywhere from six months to two years.
The benefits of ClearCorrect
When compared to traditional braces, many patients choose ClearCorrect due to the cosmetic benefits they offer during treatment. ClearCorrect aligners are transparent, which makes them ideal for teenagers and adults who are worried about how they would look with more visible orthodontic appliances. Also, ClearCorrect aligners are removable, so patients can continue their normal oral care routine and have fewer food restrictions. Ultimately, the primary benefits of ClearCorrect treatment are straighter teeth and a more attractive smile in the long term.
When to consider ClearCorrect
ClearCorrect is most appropriate for patients who have a minor to moderate dental misalignment, whereas patients with severe misalignments may benefit more from traditional braces treatment. Several of the more common issues that ClearCorrect can treat include:
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Jaw misalignments
The best way to determine whether ClearCorrect is appropriate is to discuss treatment with a ClearCorrect provider. In general, anyone who is not happy with their smile because of any of the aforementioned concerns should consider scheduling a consultation.
Tips for successful ClearCorrect treatment
The dentist or orthodontist you choose should guide you through the treatment process. However, while at home, patients should practice good oral hygiene through a consistent brushing and flossing schedule, avoid foods and drinks that may increase the risk of dental cavities or oral infection, and wear the clear aligners as directed, which is typically at least 20 to 22 hours each day.
