ClearCorrect Q & A

What is ClearCorrect?

ClearCorrect is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that straightens your teeth and bite with a series of clear, comfortable, plastic aligners. It’s an excellent alternative to traditional metal braces and can get you the same results without many of the drawbacks.

Your ClearCorrect removable aligners fit snugly over your smile, where they exert a small-yet-constant amount of pressure that gradually pushes your teeth closer toward your target alignment. 

Since 2006, ClearCorrect has helped hundreds of thousands of patients get healthier and better-looking smiles. 

What conditions does ClearCorrect treat?

ClearCorrect treats many of the same conditions as traditional metal braces, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

Many patients also use ClearCorrect to generally straighten their teeth for a more cosmetically appealing smile.

What are the advantages of ClearCorrect?

Compared to traditional metal braces, ClearCorrect has a number of advantages, including:

Comfort

ClearCorrect’s aligners are made of smooth, flexible plastic, so they’re much more comfortable in your mouth and won’t tear up the insides of your cheeks, unlike braces.

Convenience

Because your aligners are removable, you don’t have to learn any special brushing and flossing techniques, and you won’t have to change up your diet during treatment. Simply pop your aligners out before you eat, brush, or floss, and pop them right back in afterward.

Discretion

Your aligners are virtually invisible on your smile, meaning you can straighten your teeth without having to endure the “mouthful of metal” look.

How do I get started with ClearCorrect?

Your Lifetime Dental Care dentist begins your ClearCorrect treatment by taking an impression of your smile. They use that impression to make a virtual model of your mouth that’s manipulated to map out all of “steps” your teeth need to take to get into proper alignment.

Each one of those “steps” is then turned into a set of clear aligners that fit snugly over your smile and progressively move your teeth closer to their target alignment.

You wear your aligners for at least 22 hours every day, taking them out only when you need to eat, brush, or floss. After a specified amount of time, you move on to the next set of aligners in your series until you’ve reached your target alignment and finally have your dream smile.
