Misalignment of the teeth is one of the most common orthodontic problems people encounter. Traditional Metal Braces had been widely used to treat the problem. However, traditional braces treatment uses metal wires and brackets which affect the aesthetic appearance of the smile. Now, this is not the only option people have, a new way to transform the smile is made available. People can now achieve straighter, brighter and better smile with Clear Correct. ClearCorrect is a transparent device used in Orthodontics treatment which does not involve wires and brackets. At Prescott Family Dentistry, we offer ClearCorrect Treatment that is especially custom-made for each patient.
Clear Correct uses a clear and customized aligner to straighten teeth. It allows gradual movement of misaligned teeth to be correctly positioned. These aligners are designed to be easily worn and taken off. Aside from that, it is a more comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces which usually are difficult to use and wear.
The aligner is custom-made for every individual. Your dentist might require you to wear a new aligner every three weeks. This is because the alignment of the teeth slightly changes and needs certain adjustments. Clear Correct treatment is done in four phases. Each phase lasts for three weeks. A regular visit to your dentist is recommended to monitor the progress of the teeth.
The treatment may last until the desired outcome is obtained.
Compared to traditional braces, Clear Correct may be considered an easier way to improve the alignment of the teeth. Apart from its obvious features, Clear Correct has certain advantages :
Clear Correct comfortably straightens misaligned teeth without damaging the gums. Misaligned teeth can be home for bacteria, plaque, and food particle residues which may later result in tooth decay and cavity. Every nooks and crook of the teeth are difficult to clean. Having aligned teeth reduces the risks of tooth decay and tooth damage.
You don’t have to change your lifestyle and daily routine to compensate for straighter teeth! A perfect smile boosts your self-confidence and self-esteem.
