ClearCorrect aligners are a transparent alternative to traditional braces that use a series of clear aligners to instead of metal brackets and wires to straighten teeth. These invisible braces are ideal for patients who wish to straighten their teeth discreetly, while maintaining an unrestricted diet and normal oral hygiene routine. ClearCorrect aligners are removable, allowing for patients to undergo orthodontic treatment without hindering everyday activities. The ClearCorrect aligners treatment process begins with an intraoral scan of your teeth to capture their current position. Utilizing digital smile design software, we can create your most ideal smile and use this final digital representation to aid in the design of the series of clear aligners. When your ClearCorrect aligners are ready, we recommend they be worn for 22 hours a day and only removed for brushing, eating, and drinking. Wearing invisible braces for the recommended amount of time ensures your teeth are moving at the optimal speed and your treatment remains on track!
