Gapped, crooked, or overcrowded teeth impact your self-esteem and make you feel less confident about your smile. These problems also make it hard to clean your teeth, thereby increasing your risk of various dental problems like gum diseases, tooth decay, and others. Metal braces are a popular treatment option to address such teeth. But if you do not want to deal with their restrictions and visibility, ClearCorrect braces are a highly sought-after option to consider.
What are ClearCorrect Braces?
ClearCorrect braces or aligner system is used to restore misaligned teeth. They serve as an alternative to traditional wire braces and are made using a series of customized, clear, and removable aligners to align your teeth and give you a revitalized look. Considering their benefits and increasing popularity, many dentists have started recommending this treatment option to their patients.
What are the Advantages of ClearCorrect Braces?
When compared to traditional metal braces, ClearCorrect braces are more comfortable to wear.
They are removable aligners. Thus, you do not have to limit yourself from eating certain foods. There is no wire to trap your food or even get between your way when you brush and floss your teeth.
The invisible appearance of clear aligners is another reason why many people are opting for this procedure to restore their misaligned teeth.
What is the Procedure?
Our dentist will learn about your dental history, and after ensuring that you are a suitable candidate, they will take digital impressions of your mouth to design a series of aligners. Each of these aligners is created to move your teeth in place. We will recommend you wear one aligner for two weeks before switching to the next one. Do not remove the aligner other than while eating, drinking, and caring for the teeth. At the end of the treatment, our dentist will use a retainer to prevent your teeth from shifting into their previous positions.
How ClearCorrect Braces Work?
In general, this procedure includes four phases of aligner therapy. Each of these aligners is to be worn for 2-3 weeks. The time between each phase makes way for flexibility and control. After wearing each aligner, you will notice your teeth will slowly begin to adjust and align in place. In the meantime, you are expected to visit our clinic and follow up with our dentist to track your progress. This sequence will continue until you achieve your desired smile.
The after-care of ClearCorrect braces is the same as brushing and flossing. Remove your braces while caring for your teeth.
