ClearCorrect™ – Cosmetic Braces for Adults
For many patients, confidence in their smile is a significant factor for wanting straighter teeth, but the thought of wearing metal braces can seem daunting. With ClearCorrect™ clear aligners, Dr. Khan can help you achieve the symmetry and balance your smile needs without the inconvenience of braces. Using a system of clear aligners rather than conventional brackets and wires, ClearCorrect is a more comfortable, more convenient, and more cosmetically-appealing alternative to braces.
How ClearCorrect™ Works
Repositioning misaligned teeth is a delicate process. The movement must be slow enough to allow the supportive tissues and alveolar bone to accommodate the tooth’s new position. Braces achieve this movement through brackets attached to your teeth, and an arch wire to provide necessary tension.
By contrast, ClearCorrect™ aligners are designed to fit over your teeth and apply pressure where needed. The path of movement is continued each time you change your current aligner for the next in the series, so there is no need to have your braces tightened.
Not all patients are candidates for clear aligner therapy. An exam will be performed to evaluate if ClearCorrect™ is applicable for your specific dental misalignments.
The Benefits of ClearCorrect™
Made from clear acrylic and custom-designed to fit comfortably over your teeth, ClearCorrect™ offers several advantages over traditional orthodontic treatment, including:
- Optimal discretion – the aligners are virtually invisible when placed over your teeth.
- Improved comfort – no brackets are bonded to your tooth structure.
- Ultimate convenience – you can temporarily remove your aligners when you eat, and brush and floss your teeth.
