Straighten your teeth and build your confidence with ClearCorrect aligners
Your smile is an important part of how others perceive you. However, you may be concerned that your smile is not sending the right message due to gaps, crooked teeth, or other misalignment issues but are reluctant to undergo traditional orthodontic treatment with metal braces. In that case, ClearCorrect aligners might be just right for you! At Acadia Family Dentistry, patients in the Thibodaux, Louisiana area can use ClearCorrect to discreetly straighten their teeth and adjust bite problems, all while continuing to enjoy their favorite foods and activities.
How ClearCorrect works
ClearCorrect is an orthodontic solution designed for today’s busy lifestyles. With ClearCorrect, a series of clear aligners are custom-designed to bring your unique smile into proper alignment. Each set of aligners is worn for one to two weeks at a time, gradually moving your teeth into their ideal position. ClearCorrect aligners are completely removable, which means there are no restrictions on foods you can eat, and you don’t have to work around metal brackets and wires when brushing and flossing. For the best results, you should wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day.
What issues can ClearCorrect treat?
ClearCorrect can treat a variety of teeth and jaw alignment issues, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Open bite
The ClearCorrect treatment process
The first step towards the straight, beautiful teeth you’ve always wanted is to schedule your ClearCorrect consultation. During that time, Dr. Palmer will talk with you about your goals for your teeth and perform an examination to determine whether ClearCorrect treatment is right for your specific needs. We will also provide you with information about the cost of treatment and answer any questions you may have about the ClearCorrect process.
To plan out your ClearCorrect treatment, we will take precise 3D digital scans of your teeth and jaw. During this time, we can give you a preview of what your final results will look like – before your treatment even begins! It will then take a few weeks for your aligners to be custom-fabricated in the ClearCorrect laboratory. Once they arrive, you will begin wearing them for 22 hours a day, and we will give you detailed instructions on how frequently to change them out for the next set in your series. We will also schedule periodic checkups to evaluate your progress.
