What is ClearCorrect®?
Traditional braces are necessary when a dental patient has major cosmetic issues, like a severe overbite or major crowding. But if a patient has a few minor tooth imperfections, like a slightly crooked smile, small gaps or teeth that have moved out of position, ClearCorrect clear aligners may be an option.
ClearCorrect® Clear Aligners
Although they're often called braces, Invisalign is actually an orthodontic system that uses a set of clear plastic trays to align the teeth into a better position. The trays are designed to fit over each individual patient's teeth, so they must be custom-designed. This system was first introduced to the world in the late 1990s and is now helping millions of dental patients across the world achieve their ideal smiles.
How Does ClearCorrect® Work?
Instead of the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces, ClearCorrect uses a series of clear, removable plastic trays – called aligners – to straighten the teeth. These aligners fit directly onto the teeth and are virtually invisible when worn, and they're easy to remove for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene.
- Nearly-invisible appliances
- No dietary restrictions
- No obstructions to flossing or brushing
