What is ClearCorrect®?
ClearCorrect is a teeth-straightening system that utilizes clear aligners to move teeth into a more appropriate position. There are many benefits to choosing ClearCorrect treatment, and it is helpful to understand exactly what it is, how the treatment process works and what cosmetic and oral health concerns ClearCorrect works to fix.
Everyone deserves a beautiful, properly aligned smile that gives them confidence, and ClearCorrect is one of the most effective ways to effectively and efficiently address minor malocclusions and issues with crooked or overcrowded teeth. The following is everything to know about ClearCorrect treatment.
An overview of ClearCorrect
ClearCorrect is an orthodontic treatment process which utilizes custom, transparent clear aligners to address cosmetic complications, such as crooked teeth, crowded teeth or bite issues. The treatment process is different than that of traditional braces, and there are many benefits to ClearCorrect. Perhaps most notably, ClearCorrect aligners are transparent, which means others around cannot tell the patient is wearing them. The patient can also remove the aligners at any time, which is incredibly convenient while eating, brushing your teeth or giving an important presentation at work or school.
How the process works
The ClearCorrect process is simple, and it begins with an initial consultation at an orthodontic or dentist office that offers treatment. During the first visit, the dentist or orthodontist examines the patient's mouth to determine if she or he is a good candidate. Afterward, the treatment process begins with a dental impression, which is used to customize the fit of the aligners. The length of treatment varies from less than a year to two years, depending on the severity of the cosmetic concern. The patient is given new aligners approximately every three weeks until treatment is complete. After treatment is over, patients are required to wear a retainer, which generally starts out as multiple hours each day and then slowly decreases until it only needs to be worn while sleeping.
When to consider ClearCorrect
ClearCorrect is perfect for most patients with minor jaw or teeth alignment issues. Dentists and orthodontists use ClearCorrect to treat a variety of issues, including the following:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps in teeth
- Bite complications
Perhaps the main reason that patients choose ClearCorrect is to fix issues with the alignment of their teeth, but the treatment also works for bite complications as well, such as an overbite, underbite and crossbite. Also, most adults seeking teeth straightening prefer ClearCorrect rather than traditional braces as it allows them to straighten their smile in a more discrete manner.
