How ClearCorrect Works

Instead of immediately obvious metal braces, ClearCorrect realigns your teeth with a sequence of see-through plastic trays called aligners. The patient must wear each set of aligners for one to two weeks for twenty-two hours each day. Each set picks up where the last left off, and it takes an average of twelve to eighteen months to complete the treatment. While you’re wearing them, other people shouldn’t even be able to tell that you’re going through orthodontic treatment, making it easy to smile confidently. Plus, the aligners can be taken out at any time, so you won’t need to cut certain foods out of your diet as you would with traditional braces. When you’re done, you’ll have the gorgeous smile you’ve always wanted.

Who ClearCorrect Can Help

ClearCorrect is a great way to address mild or moderate malocclusions. A few of the issues these trays can address include:

Crowded Teeth

If your teeth are overlapping one another, it can detract from your smile’s appearance while also making it harder to practice proper oral hygiene. ClearCorrect can gently shift your teeth into better positions so they are no longer crooked or covering one another.

Gaps Between Teeth

Having too much space between your teeth can allow food debris to become trapped between them while also negatively affecting the look of your smile. ClearCorrect can close these gaps, which can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Bite Alignment

ClearCorrect can address alignment issues such as overbites, underbites, crossbites, and others to make a patient’s teeth easier to clean, more effective at chewing, and healthier all around.

The Benefits of ClearCorrect

On average, ClearCorrect treatment takes about twelve to eighteen months. The clear aligners require no dietary restrictions and involve an easier oral hygiene regimen than traditional braces. This treatment also involves fewer check-in visits since they involve no wires that need to be periodically tightened or adjusted. The aligners are designed for maximum comfort, so many patients report that ClearCorrect is a much more pleasant orthodontic journey to take than traditional braces.

How Much Does ClearCorrect Cost?

Each ClearCorrect treatment is customized to address its patient’s needs, so the overall cost can vary significantly from one patient to another. The cost of your treatment is determined by multiple factors such as the severity of your alignment issues as well as how well you comply with your orthodontist’s instructions. We can give you a more detailed estimate of what you can expect to pay after your consultation. Our team is available to help you navigate your payment and financing options so that the process can be as pleasant as possible.
