Achieving a straight, gorgeous smile does not need to be uncomfortable or embarrassing. Orthodontic treatments have evolved to include clear aligners that can fix many teeth misalignment issues. ClearCorrect is a quality option for teens and adults that want to straighten their smile without metal braces. Our dental team at Laguna West Dental Care in Elk Grove is happy to offer ClearCorrect for patients seeking discreet orthodontic treatment.
ClearCorrect is similar to other orthodontic aligner products like Invisalign. Using clear plastic aligners, teeth are shifted into the desired position over several months or more. We create 3D models the teeth, and a treatment plan is made to progress the shifting of the teeth to the desired position. Every few weeks, a new set of aligners is issued to the patient, bringing them closer to the final alignment. Treatments can range from several months to up to two years, depending on the extent of treatment needed.
Advantages of Clear Aligners
ClearCorrect can be used to fix most orthodontic issues, including overbites, underbites, crowded teeth, gaps and crooked teeth. Both teens and adults appreciate the advantages of using clear aligners over metal braces. Some of the advantages include:
- More comfortable – without any wires or brackets to rub against the inner lip
- No food restrictions – aligners can be removed to eat and drink any foods desired
- Discreet – the clear plastic aligners fit over your teeth and are almost invisible
- Better dental hygiene than braces – aligners can be removed to brush and floss
