Clear Aligners Q & A

What are clear aligners?

Clear aligners, like ClearCorrect, are a modern way to straighten your smile. They work on the same basic principles as traditional metal braces do: they exert a small yet constant pressure on your teeth that gradually pushes them into alignment. 

The difference is that clear aligners are far more comfortable, convenient, and discreet. 


What conditions do clear aligners treat?

Clear aligners can treat a number of orthodontic concerns, including:

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

ClearCorrect is also an excellent option if you want to improve the cosmetics of your smile by generally straightening your teeth.


What are the benefits of clear aligners?

ClearCorrect aligners are a state-of-the-art technology with a number of advantages over traditional metal braces, like:

Comfort

Instead of uncomfortable metal wires and brackets, ClearCorrect straightens your teeth with smooth, flexible plastic that won’t tear up the inside of your mouth.

Convenience

Traditional metal braces are always on your teeth, meaning you have to use special tools and techniques to keep your teeth clean during treatment. You also have to alter your diet to avoid food that might get stuck in or damage your braces.

Clear aligners, on the other hand, are removable, so you don’t have to worry about any of these concerns. Whenever you need to brush, floss, or eat, simply remove your aligners and put them back in when you’re done.

Appearance

Clear aligners are virtually invisible when you’re wearing them, so you won’t have to worry about the embarrassing mouthful-of-metal look that’s unavoidable with braces.


What’s the process for using clear aligners?

Dr. Callicutt or Dr. Dayries starts by taking an impression of your mouth, which they use to design your series of clear aligners. Straightening your smile is easy once you receive your aligners; just wear them on your teeth for 20-22 hours per day. 

You move through your series of aligners as your teeth begin to shift towards their final alignment, changing over to the next set of aligners every couple of weeks. You also maintain regular checkups at Aesthetic & Integrative Dentistry to make sure that your progress is on track. 

The length of your treatment varies depending on the type and severity of your condition, but most people can finish aligning their teeth in 1-2 years.
