Straightening Smiles from Acadia Family Dentistry, at Thibodaux, Louisiana

ClearCorrect Teeth Aligners, A Clear Choice in Straightening Smiles

Back in the day, if you wanted to straighten your teeth, the only option on the table was cumbersome traditional braces. But thanks to technology, straightening teeth has been made easier and comfortable. Now, invisible braces can align your smile discreetly without announcing your intentions to the world. While Invisalign is the most well-known treatment using clear braces, today, we learn about another type called ClearCorrect.

How ClearCorrect works

Like traditional braces, ClearCorrect aligners from Acadia Family Dentistry works by putting gentle pressure on the teeth, except that they use clear braces instead of wires. Clear teeth aligners are created from BPA-free plastic, making the braces gentle on your gums.

While clear braces are removable, you must wear them at least 22 hours a day to achieve the intended results. Your clear aligners are comfortable even when sleeping, so remove them only when eating or brushing your teeth.

After wearing your aligners, you will notice that your teeth are shifting back into proper alignment after a few weeks. You only need a few dental visits to check the progression of your treatment, after which you will receive the next set of aligners.

The ClearCorrect treatment process

Are you looking for invisible braces in Thibodaux, Louisiana? Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Nhu Le. After our dentist is satisfied that adult braces can work for you, the next step is to make precise 3D digital impressions of your mouth. Next, we create 3D models of your teeth and map out a treatment plan showing the gradual alignment process that will position your teeth into an optimal position.

After about two weeks, your aligners will be ready for fitment. You will wear your braces for about two weeks and swap them with another set that moves your teeth one step closer to perfection. While the treatment period varies depending on the severity of your misalignment, most patients wear ClearCorrect aligners for an average of 6 and 12 months.

Who can benefit from ClearCorrect?

Invisible braces work effectively for adults and teens because their teeth and jaws have already developed. Just like traditional braces, clear braces are effective in correcting the below orthodontic challenges:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Overbites
  • Open bites
  • Gapped teeth

Benefits of ClearCorrect aligners

The most obvious benefit of clear aligners is their discreet nature. When you are wearing them, you can talk to friends and relatives without them knowing you have them on. The other benefits of adult braces include:

  • Convenience: You can remove clear teeth aligners at will, especially when eating sticky foods. Besides, you can remove your aligners when brushing your teeth and put them back on when done.
  • Comfortable: You don’t have to worry about gum irritation when undergoing ClearCorrect treatment.
  • Effective: If used as directed by the dentist, clear aligners are 50% more effective in treating orthodontic issues than traditional braces.
