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 younger generation especially prefers ClearCorrect as it allows them to maintain a more pleasing smile while undergoing orthodontic treatment.
What are the advantages of choosing ClearCorrect?
- ClearCorrect gently applies pressure on the teeth in a controlled manner, thus reducing the discomfort caused during orthodontic treatment from teeth movement.
- Since ClearCorrect is made from transparent plastic material, it allows you to maintain a pleasing smile. You will not have to hide your smile when you socialize with people, pose for photos, or greet people with a broad smile.
- The aligners do not contain any metal components that can harm your oral tissues. They are entirely made from dental-grade plastic that is biocompatible.
- You can take the aligners off whenever you have to brush your teeth, eat your food, etc. This keeps the aligners from interfering with your routine oral functions.
- Highly advanced technology is backing ClearCorrect, which allows the dentist to fabricate aligners, create a simulation of the teeth movement, track the movement of the teeth with precision, etc.
How is ClearCorrect treatment carried out?
The dentist will understand your candidacy for ClearCorrect by running a few tests, scanning the teeth, and taking x-rays. Depending on your candidacy, 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 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 food 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 malocclusion, the treatment plan may span between a few months to a couple of years.
