ClearCorrect™ Invisible Braces
If your smile is being compromised by poorly aligned dental arches or misaligned teeth, ClearCorrect™ can be an effective orthodontic solution that cancels many of the inconveniences of metal braces. Using a series of transparent aligners, ClearCorrect™ can gradually guide teeth into the proper position while enhancing patient comfort during treatment. Cosmetic dentist Jeffrey Schultz, DDS offers ClearCorrect™ for patients who wish to straighten their teeth with more discretion than traditional braces – and it’s made right here in Texas!
How Does ClearCorrect™ Work?
The ClearCorrect™ system is designed to straighten teeth gradually using clear aligners, which apply gentle pressure to the teeth when worn in order to move them into an optimal position. The aligners are custom fabricated in ClearCorrect™ labs according to scans of your teeth taken by Dr. Schultz. Each set provides a small degree of movement, with aligners replaced every few weeks until the desired outcome is achieved.
The exact amount of time you wear each aligner tray will be determined by the severity of orthodontic concerns to be addressed. At the end of treatment with ClearCorrect™, patients typically achieve their orthodontic goals in a faster treatment period, and often with less office visits, when compared to metal braces.
What Can ClearCorrect™ Do For Me?
ClearCorrect™ can improve many of the orthodontic issues typically addressed with traditional braces. Furthermore, patients who qualify for treatment can achieve straighter teeth and a proper bite without suffering the discomfort of metal wiring and brackets that often irritate gum tissue. ClearCorrect™ usually provides the following benefits over traditional braces:
- Inconspicuous treatment that does not obscure your smile
- Ability to be removed when eating or cleaning teeth
- More comfortable than metal braces
- Less maintenance and faster treatment time
Since ClearCorrect™ aligners are removable, patients can enjoy an unlimited diet without the inconvenience of food getting stuck between brackets. Furthermore, individuals can brush and floss normally, with the clear aligners requiring little to no maintenance to remain in good condition.
What is ClearCorrect™ Treatment Like?
During a consultation, Dr. Schultz will assess your orthodontic needs and determine whether ClearCorrect™ is the best treatment option for your goals. In some cases of malocclusion (poor bite) or teeth misalignment, he may recommend Invisalign® clear braces to better address your concerns. If it is determined that ClearCorrect™ is well-suited to fulfill your treatment goals, Dr. Schultz will design a personalized orthodontic plan to achieve your desired results.
Dr. Schultz will then take a digital scan of your teeth to gather data about the current state of your oral structures. Using information from the digital impressions, your ClearCorrect™ aligners will be custom-made according to Dr. Schultz’s instructions. The aligners should be worn all day and night, with the trays only removed when eating or cleaning the teeth. You will switch to a new set of aligners according to the timeline created in your treatment plan (typically every few weeks) until the final outcome is achieved.
How Much Does ClearCorrect™ Cost?
The cost of ClearCorrect™ braces is determined based on the extent of misalignment to be addressed, how many sets of aligners you require to achieve your aesthetic goals, and the anticipated length of your treatment period, among other factors. After your consultation, our office will be able to provide you with a personalized quote of your ClearCorrect™ expenses. In many cases, ClearCorrect™ is considered a more economical option than orthodontic alternatives such as Invisalign® or metal braces. At any rate, our practice offers dental financing through CareCredit® to make the cost of treatment more affordable.
