ClearCorrect aligners straighten teeth invisibly without metal braces. The goal is to help patients get even, straight teeth without noticeable metal braces. This form of teeth-straightening is virtually undetectable.
The ClearCorrect system uses aligners (like fitted mouth guards) made of strong, clear plastic that gently and gradually guide the teeth into alignment. Unlike metal braces, the aligners have no wires or brackets.
This method is ideal for the treatment of:
How does it work?
If a patient is a good candidate for ClearCorrect aligners, one of our dentists will take photos and x-rays, use a scanner or impressions to capture the shape of the teeth, and submit a prescription to ClearCorrect.
A series of aligners are customized to apply pressure to the teeth the patient wants to move.
A Goers dentist will check the patient’s progress every two to three weeks per step. As each step is complete, the patient receives a new set of aligners created for that specific stage in the alignment process. This frequent change of aligners provides less force on teeth than traditional braces which typically are adjusted every six weeks but with greater force.
Aside from being more comfortable and less visible than traditional braces, the removable aligners allow for better tooth brushing and flossing providing better overall oral health.
Although ClearCorrect is an excellent alternative to traditional braces, it may not be the best option for certain tooth positions.
At the consultation stage, all questions will be answered to determine if the ClearCorrect process is the best solution.
