Clear Correct Invisible Braces – A Revolution in Cosmetic Dentistry
In the past, the only option for people who required severe teeth straightening was to have regular braces placed on their teeth. Sometimes, people would opt to live with crooked teeth because of the many drawbacks of metal braces. Braces can be rather uncomfortable and painful when they are tightened and they must remain in place until treatment is completed. In some cases, braces must stay on for years. Now, there is an option available to you that may change your mind about braces!
With ClearCorrect, Dr. Sulzbach can straighten your teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner moves your teeth just a little bit at a time until you eventually have straight teeth.
You and Dr. Sulzbach will evaluate your teeth and talk about any problems or goals you have for your smile. Once you and Dr. Sulzbach establish that ClearCorrect is the right treatment option for you, we will take impressions, photos and x-rays of your teeth. ClearCorrect uses these images and impressions of your teeth to manufacture your custom aligners.
You deserve a smile you can be proud of! ClearCorrect can make it happen. Aligners are comfortable, removable and best of all, nearly invisible. Most people will not even notice that you are wearing them. Since you can easily remove the aligners to eat and drink, you will not have to change your diet like you may need to with braces. You can proudly show off your smile while discreetly aligning your teeth! Some severe cases of teeth misalignment do require metal braces, but most patients can be treated just as effectively with clear aligners. The cost of ClearCorrect is significantly lower than that of a well-known competitor.
How does it work?
We will take impressions, x-rays and photos of your teeth to send to ClearCorrect. Along with the impressions and images of your teeth, we will also send instructions for the series of tooth movements you will need to achieve your ideal smile. A 3D model of your mouth will then be created and a series of clear plastic aligners will be custom-fitted to your teeth. Each aligner will apply targeted pressure to the teeth selected by Dr. Sulzbach, slowly moving them into correct alignment. Every six weeks, we will check on your progress and give you your next two sets of aligners. Unlike other clear aligner companies, ClearCorrect aligners are manufactured in phases, so Dr. Sulzbach can request changes or tweaks at any time. Treatment usually takes 18 months, but should be able to start seeing results almost right away.
Dr. Sulzbach can not only provide you with ClearCorrect invisible braces, but also the regular dental maintenance that your teeth require. He can advise you about cosmetic dentistry techniques to make your teeth look even better. Talk to your dentist if you have questions about tooth whitening, straightening or other cosmetic dental procedures.
