Are you looking for dental treatments that can help you straighten your teeth without the need for metal braces? ClearCorrect is the best option in achieving the perfect smile most people have ever dreamed of.

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps in between teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites

How long will I have to wear ClearCorrect aligners to see the result?

The duration of how long will the patients have to wear aligners will depend on the complexity of their case. In the initial consultation, the dentist will examine their teeth thoroughly to determine how long they may need to wear ClearCorrect.

How does ClearCorrect straighten the teeth?

ClearCorrect exerts enough pressure on the teeth, moving them into their final and appropriate positions. In every dental appointment, the dentist checks the patient’s progress and will give them their next set of aligners in the series when they are ready. 

How comfortable are the ClearCorrect aligners?

For the first few days of wearing ClearCorrect aligners, experiencing tenderness or sensitivity is only normal. However, in the long run, when the patient gets accustomed to wearing this aligner, they will become more comfortable. Irritation or soreness may occur, but rarely.

Although aligners can sometimes affect the speech temporarily, the majority of people quickly adapt to them. Speech is rarely impaired for long when using the orthodontic device. Wearers may also experience a temporary increase in their saliva or dryness of the mouth.

How do I clean and maintain ClearCorrect aligners?

ClearCorrect aligners are easy to maintain and keep clean. Know that the failure to do so can lead to tooth decay, inflammation of the gums, and periodontal disease. 

The aligners are usually cleaned using a toothbrush with a non-abrasive toothpaste and cool water. Make sure to check every bag of new aligners for cleaning instructions.

Can I still eat my favorite foods with ClearCorrect?

People can still eat their favorite foods with ClearCorrect. The aligners are removable; this means that it can be taken out before eating their favorite foods. Always remember that proper oral hygiene must be practiced to avoid staining the clear aligners.
