Do you want straighter teeth without that annoying lisp, brackets, and rubber bands? ClearCorrect or Invisalign may be for you! They are an alternative to traditional braces but work in a similar way by gradually moving your teeth into place.
Unlike traditional metal braces, the clear aligners can be removed for eating or drinking – so no need to cut out everything at the dinner table! The Invisalign process is also much faster than normal braces as they only take about 6-12 months, compared to 24 or more with regular orthodontics. ClearCorrect has been found to straighten the patient’s teeth up to 99% percent of what could have been achieved if traditional braces were worn and also reduces the risk of adverse effects, such as root resorption.
ClearCorrect also provides accurate and detailed progress reports for you to take to your ClearCorrect dentist to check whether it is working as expected. Simply put, ClearCorrect has the ability to give you a perfect smile if desired results can be achieved beyond simply straightening teeth.
People who wear ClearCorrect typically wear their aligners for about two weeks before changing them with new ones, which takes an average of 10-12 weeks to complete the treatment process. This changes depending on how quickly teeth are moved, which varies from person to person because everyone’s mouth and bone structure are different.
Both are worn for 22 hours per day, have a treatment strategy, and are custom-crafted for each patient. Invisalign and ClearCorrect are supplied by licensed dentists or orthodontists, and they are much more inconspicuous than traditional braces.
Fortunately, today many dentists and orthodontists provide ClearCorrect and Invisalign treatment options. To be a provider of ClearCorrect, dentists must first complete an introductory training with the company and then obtain certification and licensure as a dentist. Invisalign dentists and orthodontists use a “ranking system” ranging from bronze to VIP based on how many patients they have treated with Invisalign aligners.
Overall, ClearCorrect offers many of the same results as Invisalign for a fraction of the price, making it an affordable way to get straighter teeth with minimal invasiveness. With either product, you can be certain that you’ll be getting the right product for the job – and for your wallet.
