If your teeth are not as straight as you’d like, you might have thought about braces. Many adults and teens, however, are not thrilled with the idea of committing as many as two or three years of their life to a mouth full of metal brackets and wires.
What many people don’t know is that there is an option available that will get you the straight teeth you want without the commitment to unattractive orthodontia. ClearCorrect invisible braces for adults and teens straighten teeth in about half the time as conventional braces and without the uncomfortable, unattractive metal.
Not only is ClearCorrect effective, but it is virtually invisible. Most people won’t even know you are in the process of straightening your teeth. Don’t go through life embarrassed about your crooked teeth. Talk to Dr. Roy Chun at Oasis Dental and find out if ClearCorrect invisible braces are right for you.
How Does ClearCorrect Technology Work?
The ClearCorrect system comprises a series of clear, flexible, plastic aligners that gently nudge the teeth into the desired position. Every few weeks, patients will use a new set of trays. The trays are custom-made for each patient with three-dimensional computer-imaging technology. Unlike traditional metal braces that use brackets and wires, the ClearCorrect trays are comfortable to wear. Length of treatment will depend on your individual circumstances, but treatment times with ClearCorrect are generally quicker than with traditional braces.
It is important that ClearCorrect patients commit to wearing their aligners for at least 22 per hours each day, so there is a certain amount of discipline involved if patients are to achieve success.
What Are the Advantages of ClearCorrect?
Of course the biggest advantage to the clear plastic aligners of ClearCorrect is that they are practically invisible. Even someone sitting directly across from you will not notice you are wearing them. There is also none of the mouth irritation that comes from the brackets and wires of traditional metal braces.
Another advantage of ClearCorrect is one that many people don’t immediately consider: They are removable. This eliminates the food restrictions you might have with traditional metal braces since they can be taken out for eating and for brushing and flossing afterward. If you have a special occasion during which you don’t want to wear the aligners, you can remove them for that as well. Teenagers who are involved with sports or who play an instrument are pleased to learn their activities will have no restrictions either.
Patients are also excited to know that they will see changes happening with their teeth while they go through treatment. Unlike with traditional metal braces, where it is difficult to see improvements during the process, patients will not have to wait years for the braces to be removed. Your teeth will become straighter before your very eyes!
