When considering a method for realigning teeth, the most common solution that comes to mind are traditional metal bracket braces. These braces are often cumbersome and create difficult scenarios when eating or performing routine oral hygiene tasks.
Another option available to patients are ClearCorrect aligners. These aligners are clear removable braces that sit on the teeth and are adjusted over time to create the desired smile. They are far more aesthetically pleasing and far less restrictive to the patient as they can be removed when eating or brushing/flossing your teeth.
How do ClearCorrect Aligners Work?
Initially, you must go for a consultation with your dentist to find out whether or not your teeth are a candidate for ClearCorrect. Some teeth may require traditional metal braces for a proper correction.
Once deemed a candidate for ClearCorrect, you will make an appointment for your first set of aligners. Patients typically wear these for about three weeks – at which point they’d come back in for a checkup and a new set of aligners that have further adjustments built into them. The correction required will determine the time needed with ClearCorrect to achieve your desired smile.
ClearCorrect aligners are excellent options for individuals with crowded teeth, spacing between teeth, overbites, underbites, and crooked or rotated teeth. For more serious conditions or tooth issues, as mentioned above, traditional metal braces may be required.
