Who wouldn’t want straight teeth with an attractive smile that will last a lifetime. Wishful thinking? Not when there is ClearCorrect, a treatment that not only helps you achieve that stunning smile, but also lets you take control of your cosmetic dental needs.
The ClearCorrect system straightens your teeth, closes unsightly gaps, and corrects an overbite or underbite so you can smile with greater confidence. But there’s much more to it than that. In fact, here are five surprising benefits of the ClearCorrect method:
1. No uncomfortable metal hardware.
If you think undergoing orthodontic care means having to wear a mouth full of brackets and wires, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Unlike traditional braces, the ClearCorrect system uses clear, invisible aligners that adjust your teeth into a more ideal position. These clear plastic trays are discreet, removable and easily maintained.
2. No food limitations.
Whereas traditional braces present some serious food limitations – everything from popcorn to corn on the cob to apples to anything sticky like gum – ClearCorrect eliminates that problem. When you want to eat, simply remove the aligners. After your meal, clean your teeth and put the aligners back in. As long as you wear your aligners for about 22 hours per day, your treatment will be effective.
3. Healthier oral hygiene.
With traditional braces, you need special tools to clean your teeth around the restricting brackets and wire. Besides, there are other inaccessible areas in your mouth where decay and infection can hide. With ClearCorrect, cleaning your teeth is easy. You just remove the trays and brush and floss your teeth, no need for “threaders” or maneuvering around hardware. You’ll also save the time it takes to use special tools to clean around traditional braces.
4. Treatment only takes 12 to 18 months.
With traditional braces, treatment can take between two and three years to complete. What’s more, you’re expected to visit your dentist or orthodontist regularly – about every six weeks – during your treatment. With ClearCorrect, you’ll have that straight, beautiful smile in nearly half the time and with fewer office visits. Plus, no broken brackets, rubber bands or night retainers!
5. Greater comfort.
Traditional braces have been known to damage the soft tissue in the mouth. They also create discomfort due to the tension of wire tightening. That’s never the case with ClearCorrect. The trays fit comfortably and gradually move your teeth into their more appropriate location. Instead of constantly visiting your dentist to get your braces tightened, you simply swap out the previous aligner for a new one about once every two weeks.
