Clear Correct Q & A
What is ClearCorrect?
Clear Correct is a brand of nearly invisible, clear aligners worn on your teeth for the purpose of making them straight.
Clear Correct comes with custom-made trays for you to wear at all times except when eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth. Your dentist determines how often your trays need to be changed for your personalized treatment plan.
Even though the average treatment takes about the same amount of time as traditional metal braces, Clear Correct is typically easier and more convenient.
Between each transition, you’ll notice that your teeth are slowly coming into alignment, giving you successful results. At Comfort Care Dental, your dentist provides regular checkups to ensure that your goal of having straight teeth is on target.
How does ClearCorrect work?
When you choose ClearCorrect, your dentist starts by taking a scan of your mouth. You may also be offered Invisalign if your dentist thinks it may suit your dental needs better. Depending on the type of aligner you choose, this could mean a digital scan (for Invisalign) or taking pictures, X-rays, and an impression of your mouth (for ClearCorrect). With this information, ClearCorrect creates multiple sets of aligners, personalized for you.
You wear the first aligner in your series for a prescribed amount of time — usually a week or two — before switching to the next aligner. As you transition, you’ll notice that your teeth are slowly coming into alignment, giving you successful results.
At Comfort Care Dental, your dentist provides regular checkups to ensure that you’re on target to hit your goal of having straight teeth by the time you finish wearing your last aligner.
Who can benefit from ClearCorrect?
Both teens and adults can benefit from these aligners. They’re also an option for children who don’t have their molars yet. The team at Comfort Care Dental uses ClearCorrect and Invisalign to help treat orthodontic issues including:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
Senior citizens with more complicated dental issues may benefit from ClearCorrect or Invisalign, as well. Your Comfort Care Dental dentist can determine if these alternatives to braces are the right solution for you, as it tends to be better suited for those who need only minimal shifting.
