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
  • Crowding

What your dentists in Fayetteville want you to knowclearcorrect

If nature gave you a smile that is less-than-straight, did you know you can achieve a straight smile easily and comfortably? It’s true, thanks to Clear Correct, the virtually invisible orthodontic appliance treatment. Dr. Edwin Richardson and Dr. Jonathan Robinson at Dental Traditions in Fayetteville, GA want to share the facts about this revolutionary way to achieve a straight smile.

Clear Correct is different than conventional orthodontic treatment. There are no unsightly metal brackets and wires. The treatment period is shorter too, giving you the straight smile you’ve always wanted in far less time.

Clear Correct treatment uses a system of clear plastic trays, called aligners. You receive your first set of aligners which you wear for 3 weeks. You then progress to a new set of aligners which you wear for an additional 3 weeks. You progress to a new set of aligners every 3 weeks as your teeth and jaws gently move into proper alignment. The entire Clear Correct treatment takes between 9 and 15 months.

When you choose Clear Correct, you can expect:

  • Unrivalled comfort because there are no sharp parts to irritate your gums, cheeks and lips
  • Unsurpassed cosmetic beauty because the clear plastic trays are nearly invisible to people around you
  • Amazing convenience because you can remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth
  • Outstanding satisfaction because you can remove the aligners to eat the foods you love

Clear Correct treatment is versatile too. It can correct all of the same jaw and tooth alignment issues as conventional brackets and wires, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, gaps, and tooth overlap.

If you want a straight smile more comfortably and in less time, Clear Correct is for you. If you want a straight smile but you don’t want to put up with brackets and wires, Clear Correct is for you. To find out more about why Clear Correct is the right choice for your orthodontic treatment call Dr. Edwin Richardson and Dr. Jonathan Robinson at Dental Traditions in Fayetteville, GA today!

You've probably heard about "invisible braces;" clear plastic trays that disguise the fact you're straightening your teeth. Although several treatment plans are available, Dr. Edwin Richardson and Dr. Jonathan Robinson, dentists at Dental Traditions in Fayetteville, Georgia, are proud to offer ClearCorrect to their patients. Here are some of the most common questions about this orthodontic process.Clear Correct

How does ClearCorrect work?

Your Fayetteville dentist will take measurements of your teeth using digital radiography. These are then sent to the ClearCorrect laboratory, where a series of plastic aligner trays are made to your exact specifications. Each aligner is designed to be worn in your mouth for a three-week period except while eating, drinking or cleaning your teeth; over this time, the gentle pressure from the aligner will adjust your teeth toward their desired alignment. Your progress will be evaluated by Dr. Richardson or Dr. Robinson and aligners will be switched out as your teeth move.

How long is ClearCorrect's treatment time?

The time in which a patient wears ClearCorrect aligners is often dependent on the severity of their case and their diligence in wearing the aligners. As your Fayetteville dentist will tell you, wearing the aligners between 20 and 22 hours a day helps to ensure the best and quickest outcome.

How much does ClearCorrect cost?

Compared to similar orthodontic treatments, ClearCorrect is typically more cost effective for both your Fayetteville dentist and you.

Are ClearCorrect aligners comfortable?

Without the sharp angles of brackets and wires, ClearCorrect makes wearing braces a very comfortable experience. They are smooth and lightweight; after you get used to them, you will probably forget you're wearing your aligners until it comes time to eat!

If you're an adult or a teen who'd like more information on straightening your teeth with ClearCorrect, give Dental Traditions a call! We'd be glad to set up a consultation for you!
