Learn more about this clear system and how it corrects crooked smiles.
Considering whether or not to straighten your smile? We know that this is a big decision, particularly for our teen and adult patients; however, thanks to options like ClearCorrect, our Fayetteville, GA, dentists Dr. Edwin Richardson, Dr. Jonathan Robinson and Dr. Lindsey Alvarez offer discreet and completely clear ways to correct crooked and misaligned smiles.
How does ClearCorrect work?
ClearCorrect is an FDA-approved orthodontic treatment that provides our patients here in Fayetteville, GA, with flexible, transparent and BPA-free aligners that fit over teeth like mouthguards or whitening trays. Thanks to SmartTrack™ technology, ClearCorrect also provides a comfortable yet ideal fit when worn.
Just like with other clear aligner systems, ClearCorrect provides a set of clear aligners that a patient will need to wear throughout the day for up to two weeks at a time. Each aligner will shift teeth gradually into the ideal position. ClearCorrect offers 6-aligner, 12-aligner and unlimited aligner treatment options, based on our patient’s unique needs.
What makes it different from other clear aligner systems?
While ClearCorrect works similarly to other clear aligner systems one difference is the cost. ClearCorrect tends to be more affordable and budget-friendly than other options out there. ClearCorrect aligners are also crafted from thinner material, which means that they are more lightweight and may feel more comfortable than other options.
How long will ClearCorrect treatment take?
This will depend entirely on the issues you are looking to address with ClearCorrect and the extent of these issues. Some patients only need 6 or 12 aligners, while others may need more. During your consultation, our Fayetteville, GA, family dentist will map out your treatment plan and be able to provide you with a clearer length of treatment.
Most adults achieve results in about one year or less. Of course, wearing your aligners is key to ensuring that you get the results you want quickly. This means wearing your aligners for about 22 hours each day.
Who is a good candidate?
ClearCorrect is a great orthodontic option for any older teen or adult who is looking to correct,
- Malocclusions such as overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
