What is ClearCorrect?
ClearCorrect is a type of clear aligner orthodontic treatment. They’re made of a thin, translucent, and smooth plastic that is nearly undetectable while you wear them. Each set of aligners gradually move your teeth into their desired position.
To start your ClearCorrect treatment, you will first begin with a consultation with Dr. Grimshaw. Dr. Grimshaw will take external photos, x-rays, and impressions of your teeth. With these images, she creates a digital 3D image of your teeth to map out your personalized treatment plan. During your consultation, she will show you what your teeth will look like during each stage and tell you how long it takes to achieve your desired results.
Dr. Grimshaw will send your information off to the ClearCorrect lab where they manufacture each set of aligners. Once they return from the lab, you will wear them for the recommended time before moving onto a new set. Patients must wear their clear aligners for at least 22 hours per day and only remove them to eat, drink, or clean their teeth. Most treatments take anywhere from six months to two years to complete. Every 6 weeks or so, you will visit our Aberdeen dental office so we can check the progress of your treatment.
Types of Problems ClearCorrect Can Treat
ClearCorrect can address most mild or moderate orthodontic problems. If for any reason your case is too severe to handle, we might recommend a different orthodontic treatment. Some of the most common problems we address with ClearCorrect include the following.
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Open bite
If you suffer from any of these issues, please contact our dental office for a consultation in Aberdeen with Dr. Grimshaw. We will let you know if ClearCorrect is a good treatment option for you.
There are several reasons why ClearCorrect is the perfect treatment to choose from since it comes with a handful of benefits you won’t find with traditional braces including the following.
Discreet – One of the most appealing benefits is the fact that ClearCorrect aligners are nearly invisible. Nobody will notice that you’re wearing braces except you and Dr. Grimshaw. Your entire treatment can stay a secret and you won’t have to hide your smile during any occasion.
Comfort – The smooth plastic aligners are comfortable to wear and won’t cause cuts or scratches in your mouth like metal braces. Since the aligners move your teeth in smaller increments than traditional braces, you will also feel less sore after switching aligners.
Convenience – There are no reasons to invest in fancy floss or toothbrushes to maneuver between brackets and wires. You also don’t have to give up some of your favorite foods. Brushing, flossing, and eating habits stay the same when you choose ClearCorrect treatment. Just remove your aligners and you’re ready to brush, floss and eat like usual.
Less Chair Time – Your checkup appointments are incredibly fast and less often than with traditional braces. We just need to check on your progress and you’re ready to go. Spend more time enjoying your life and less time at our dental office.
