If you are interested in correcting teeth that are misaligned, gapped, or crowded, our dentists may recommend ClearCorrect™ clear braces. Unlike traditional braces which use metal brackets, archwires, and bands to straighten your teeth, the ClearCorrect orthodontic system uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom made to fit snugly over your teeth and gradually guide them to their proper positions. Every few weeks, you will switch aligners to continue your smile’s progress until you have achieved ideal alignment. For some patients, ClearCorrect clear braces can also be used to correct issues with the bite and jaw alignment, such as overbite, open bite, crossbite, or underbite.
ClearCorrect offers several advantages over traditional orthodontic treatment. Because the aligners are created from transparent, smooth plastic, they are both discrete and comfortable. In fact, most people will not be able to tell that you are wearing your aligners. The aligners can also be removed easily when you need to eat, brush, or floss, making it simple for you to maintain good oral hygiene during treatment and to continue eating all of your favorite foods.
