What Is ClearCorrect?ClearCorrect offers nearly invisible, clear aligners that straighten and appropriately spaced teeth. It’s just one of the options orthodontists at Supreme Dentistry, has available to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. There are numerous benefits to considering ClearCorrect. Contemporary clear aligners or braces are more cost-effective than traditional metal braces requiring fewer dental appointments for re-adjustments. The lack of wires or brackets means they are easier to clean and less likely to be damaged. ClearCorrect is designed for optimal comfort. These aligners are trimmed to match the patient’s gumline making them less noticeable and blend in with your naturally-matte teeth. ClearCorrect aligners are also thinner than similar products like Invisalign, making them more comfortable to wear. Also, aligners from ClearCorrect have no dietary restrictions, don’t obstruct or prevent brushing and flossing, and are removable. Your dentist at Supreme Dentistry creates a 3D model of your teeth and bite. A treatment plan is developed from that model, showing you how your teeth will be gradually re-aligned. Then, aligners are custom made with computer precision to fit. ClearCorrect has multiple treatment options–Limited 6, Limited 12, and Unlimited. Consulting with your dentist, you can determine which option is best for your needs.
Issues ClearCorrect Can Help ResolveWhile some may still see braces as something for children or young people, many adults are getting them to correct long-standing cosmetic issues with their teeth. With the rise in the availability of near-invisible devices like ClearCorrect, more adults have decided to fix aspects of their smile that have long bothered them. Some of the problems invisible braces can correct:
- Overbite: This is when an individual’s top front teeth overlap the front lower teeth. For most, this isn’t a problem; however, an individual can experience jaw discomfort and issues biting and chewing when overbite becomes more pronounced. Invisible braces like ClearCorrect help to move top teeth back, resolving the overbite issue.
- Crowding: There are times when an individual’s permanent teeth buckle and crowd each other. When teeth crowd or overlap each other, they twist and turn to the side, making it challenging to keep teeth clean. This increases the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. But clear aligners address this helping to straighten and space teeth out more appropriately.
- Gaps and spaces: Sometimes, individuals have their permanent teeth come in with slight gaps between them. Gaps and spaces can also arise due to teeth getting chipped or having been extracted. Also, as people age, their teeth move or adjust in their jaw, and sometimes this creates gaps. Having spaces between teeth increases the likelihood of food getting stuck and bacteria growing there, leading to serious issues. Furthermore, gaps make people feel self-conscious. Fortunately, ClearCorrect can gently push and readjust teeth closing spaces.
