As an alternative to traditional orthodontia and Invisalign, Dental365 offers ClearCorrect™ to discreetly straighten your teeth. ClearCorrect™ is a system of clear plastic aligners that you wear to gradually and gently guide teeth into their proper place. The system is similar to Invisalign®, but with a few differences, such as being more cost effective. If you are interested in an orthodontic option that does not involve metal brackets and wires, ClearCorrect™ may be right for you. Contact one of our New York, NY-area locations today to schedule your consultation.
No More Metal Braces
ClearCorrect™ eliminates the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces by using a system of clear plastic aligners. The aligners can be removed for cleaning, eating a meal, or attending a special event. ClearCorrect™ patients can eat or chew whatever they like.
Additionally, you will not have to endure the responsibilities that come with traditional braces, such as having the wires tightened, or dealing with uncomfortable bands. It can take two years or longer to see results with traditional braces, whereas most patients can accomplish the same results in 12 to 18 months with ClearCorrect™. Best of all, the aligners are virtually invisible, which means that most people will not even know you are wearing them.
ClearCorrect™ vs. Invisalign®
You may think that the ClearCorrect™ system sounds a lot like Invisalign®, and you are correct. For the most part, they are very similar, but ClearCorrect™ has a few distinct advantages. First, the ClearCorrect™ system is usually more cost effective, allowing you to enjoy virtually the same system, for less money.
The aligners used in the ClearCorrect™ program are slightly thinner and have a smooth surface to prevent clouding after prolonged use. This means they are even less visible than other aligners. Also, while Invisalign® requires that you order all of your aligners at once, you can order ClearCorrect™ aligners in phases, allowing you to pay as you go, as well as order adjustments, if necessary.
The ClearCorrect™ Process
The treatment process for ClearCorrect™ invisible aligners is very close to that of Invisalign®. You will begin with a consultation in one of our office locations. Your smile will be assessed to determine if you are a good candidate for ClearCorrect™ and if the program will achieve effective results. Once it is determined that ClearCorrect™ is the right option, we will take pictures of your mouth to create a 3D image.
These images will be used to design a treatment plan that specifies exactly where each tooth needs to move to create your perfect smile. At your consultation, you will be able to see a preview of what your final smile will look like.
Next, the laboratory will design your clear plastic aligners. Each set of aligners should be worn for two weeks to apply controlled force on specific teeth and guide them into place. You will need to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours each day, only removing them for meals and cleaning. At the end of your treatment, we will provide you with a custom-made retainer to help keep your teeth in their new position.
