ClearCorrect is an orthodontic aligner made from a clear dental-grade plastic material. It is quite a worthy alternative to conventional dental braces, as it offers similar functionality with an added advantage of improved aesthetics. The adults especially prefer ClearCorrect as it is almost invisible and allows them to maintain a more pleasing smile while undergoing orthodontic treatment.
The dentist will assess your candidacy for ClearCorrect by running a few tests, scanning the teeth, and taking X-rays. Once your candidacy is confirmed, we will proceed with the treatment. The teeth will be scanned digitally to create a 3D digital impression, which will be used as a reference for fabricating the aligners. Multiple sets of aligners will be fabricated for the entire duration of the treatment, which will enable the teeth to be aligned to their orthodontically right positions.
Patients will have to use the aligners most of the day and can only take them off when they have to eat or brush their teeth. This keeps the aligners in contact with the teeth for a long duration, thus allowing them to move as expected. Depending on the severity of the malocclusion, the treatment plan may span between a few months to a couple of years.
