Braces aren’t just for children or teens! Many adults seek orthodontic treatment to improve their smiles, boost their self-esteem and to correct their bites. With no wires or brackets, ClearCorrect has been an ideal choice for many of our patients looking to straighten their teeth.
ClearCorrect is a clear aligner system used as an alternative to traditional braces. A series of clear, custom-made, aligners gradually move teeth a little bit at a time, eventually correcting the teeth and creating ideal alignment. Even better, the clear aligners are removable which means brushing, flossing, and eating your favorite foods remains simple and comfortable!
Our team will evaluate your teeth and talk about any problems or goals you have for your smile. Detailed information will be gathered including: impressions, photographs and radiographs. This information is used to create a 3-D model of your teeth and a prescription for custom-made aligners. The Mint Dental Works team then maps out a complete treatment plan showing the gradual realignment that will move your teeth from their current position to where we want them to be.
The “treatment set-up,” a computerized representation of your teeth before and after treatment, is available for viewing after treatment planning. You receive your treatment set-up by email and respond with your approval or any adjustment requests. Using the most up-to-date digital mapping and molding technology, custom aligners then are created with computer precision.
ClearCorrect treatment involves four phases of aligner therapy. Each phase requires a new set of aligners that are worn for a three-week period. The time between each phase allows for control and flexibility.
ClearCorrect aligners are worn all the time, except when eating and drinking, or while brushing and flossing. Designed with aesthetics in mind, these aligners are barely noticeable and won’t have an impact on your daily routine.
After wearing each aligner set, results will be noticeable as your teeth begin slowly adjusting and aligning to your desired smile. Periodic check-ups with our office are required so your progress can be evaluated and you can be given the next set of aligners. This sequence will continue until you have achieved your new, ClearCorrect smile. 🙂
