What Is Clear Correct?
Clear Correct is an alternative to traditional orthodontia, such as metal braces. As the name suggests, Clear Correct uses clear plastic aligners, similar to mouthguards or retainers, to gradually move your teeth into the correct position.
This results in a straight, attractive smile, without requiring the application of unsightly braces. It’s also often faster than braces for those who do not require intensive orthodontic correction.
Because Clear Correct helps you avoid the stigma of “adult braces” it’s very popular for adults who wish to correct their smile quickly, without revealing their orthodontics to others.
How Does Clear Correct Work?
Clear Correct aligners are built of durable, thin plastic. When worn, these aligners apply even and gentle pressure to the teeth, shifting them into a different position over several weeks.
Usually, each Clear Correct aligner is worn for about two weeks, for 20-22 hours a day, until the teeth have shifted. Then, a new aligner is placed, and the process begins again.
Treatment usually requires about 20 sets of aligners, so most patients complete Clear Correct treatments within a year, though this depends on your particular orthodontic needs.
What Are The Benefits Of Clear Correct?
Clear Correct has a number of benefits, both over traditional metal braces and over competing aligner systems, such as Invisalign.
- Removable – Clear Correct aligners can be removed for activities such as contact sports, and for eating and drinking. You can also remove them to brush and floss your teeth, unlike metal braces which often make oral hygiene more difficult.
- Totally invisible – Clear Correct aligners are almost completely invisible, allowing you to get the orthodontic treatment you need without revealing it to the world.
- Comfortable – Braces have metal brackets and wires that can be stiff, uncomfortable, and poke your mouth. They also are much more uncomfortable after they’re adjusted. In contrast, aligners like Clear Correct exert gentle pressure that is almost unnoticeable. They are free of metal or wiring and have no sharp edges that can poke the tissue of your mouth.
- Lower cost – Clear Correct is usually cheaper than competing aligner systems, such as Invisalign, and can even be cheaper than metal braces, in some cases.
