Our Lafayette, IN dental office offers our patients the option of straightening their teeth with clear aligners through a company called Clear Correct. These comfortable aligners are similar in appearance to plastic mouth guards, with the important difference being that they are an orthodontic treatment designed specifically to move teeth.
Benefits of Clear Correct Aligners
People of all ages and with a wide range of concerns can benefit from state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment with Clear Correct. Clear aligners are a great choice for improving the alignment of your front teeth and the appearance of your smile.
Anyone from teens to seniors may be a good candidate for Clear Correct treatment. We believe that it is never too early or too late to achieve the beautiful, healthy smile that you have always wanted.
One significant benefit of orthodontic treatment with Clear Correct is that there are no brackets and wires to interfere with your busy lifestyle. For the most efficient results, you should wear your aligners for 20-22 hours each day. But you’ll be happy to know that you also have the freedom to easily remove them any time you want.
You will be able to eat any type of foods that you like without the concern of getting food stuck in your brackets. And, unlike hygiene with traditional orthodontics, brushing and flossing with clear aligners is very simple. There are no special tools, and keeping your teeth clean does not require a lot of extra time.
How Clear Correct Works
Clear Correct uses a process for straightening teeth that is very similar to Invisalign. With Clear Correct, we can gently and gradually straighten your teeth by using a series of clear aligners that are custom made just for you. The aligners are made of an advanced clear plastic that becomes nearly invisible when worn.
Your aligners are switched approximately every three weeks, until your treatment is finished and your teeth have been moved into their proper position. Length of treatment varies, as each case is different, and we will develop a customized treatment plan specifically for your needs.
