A mouth of crooked teeth can make it hard to smile with confidence, and this problem can also make your smile unhealthy. Our Racine WI dental office works with people of all ages to provide safe orthodontics that will drastically improve a person’s smile.
At North Bay Dental, one option our adult patients love is ClearCorrect. This is a treatment that uses clear aligners instead of metal brackets and wires to straighten the teeth. Adults patients don’t want to deal with the embarrassment of metal braces, and with ClearCorrect, they don’t have need to. Today we want to share a 3 major benefits of ClearCorrect.
No Braces Ever
Traditional braces continue to be the gold standard of treatment. Dentists and orthodontists can make big improvements in your smile with braces, but not all patients want to deal with braces. They don’t like the way braces feel or look. ClearCorrect uses clear aligners instead of metal brackets. The aligners can be easily removed for eating and cleaning, and the best part is that people will never know that you’re undergoing treatment. You get to smile with confidence during your treatment. No more shielding your smile or worrying about looking like a preteen.
You can take our your aligners for a few hours a day, but it’s important to wear the aligners for about 20 hours a day so your treatment stays on track.
Keep Your Teeth Clean, Eat Whatever You Want
Metal brackets and wires stay on your teeth for the entire duration of the treatment. With braces, you’re instructed not to eat certain foods like popcorn, corn on the cob, chewy foods or even sticky foods. Additionally, the brackets and wires are difficult to clean around, especially when it comes to flossing your teeth.
That’s not a problem with ClearCorrect. You can simply take the aligners off whenever you want to eat or clean your teeth. We’ve found that ClearCorrect is often safer for patients because it’s easier to clean the teeth.
The Treatment Takes Less Time
Traditional braces can take about two to three years to complete. That is partly because it can help some of the most severe orthodontic problems. But the thing is that not everyone needs extensive orthodontic treatment.ClearCorrect is a great option for adults with mildly crooked teeth and bite issues. The treatments takes about 12 to 18 months, but it’s also common for many patients to finish their treatment in less than one year. The duration of the treatment depends on your orthodontic problems and how well you stick with the treatment plan.
