Clear Correct FAQ’s
Wood Orthodontics offers ClearCorrect Aligners, a clear form of orthodontic treatment that serves as an effective, discrete alternative to traditional wire braces. Below we have listed some of the most frequently asked questions about ClearCorrect to provide a better understanding of what they are and how they can benefit you.
What is ClearCorrect?
ClearCorrect is an invisible orthodontic treatment that uses a personalized series of clear aligners to push or pull your teeth into place over time. Many adult patients want a straighter smile, but don’t want to wear metal braces for a year or more. ClearCorrect allows patients to receive orthodontic treatment without drawing unwanted attention to their smile.
How do clear aligners work?
Each set of ClearCorrect aligners is specifically designed to fit onto your teeth and promote movement. Each set of aligners is worn for about 2 weeks, and will gradually move your teeth into a new position. Then a new set of aligners will take its place, until the desired result is achieved.
How does the treatment process work?
To begin your ClearCorrect treatment, we will first take impressions, x-rays, and photographs of your teeth. These will provide Dr. Wood with the information he needs to develop your personalized treatment plan and start creating your custom aligners.
When the first set of clear aligners is ready, the treatment will start. Aligners are to be worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day in order to achieve the best possible results. Depending on your specific smile, Dr. Wood will determine the length of your entire treatment.
What are the benefits of ClearCorrect Aligners?
The main benefit of ClearCorrect is that it is a virtually invisible way to obtain a perfectly straight smile. Many adults choose ClearCorrect because it doesn’t disrupt their lifestyle or draw unwanted attention. Each set of aligners throughout the treatment is designed to fit securely on the patient’s teeth, ensuring an invisible, natural look.
ClearCorrect aligners are completely removable, which means that no food is off-limits. With traditional braces, it can be difficult to keep the teeth clean. However, with removable clear aligners, you can brush your teeth normally and avoid any cavities.
