Treatment with ClearCorrect
ClearCorrect uses a series of strong, thin plastic aligners that are worn for 20-22 hours per day. These aligners are built to shift teeth gently into the proper position without the discomfort associated with traditional braces. As your treatment progresses, you will swap out your aligners for a new set about every two weeks to ensure that your teeth continue moving properly. You’ll also come into our office every 4-6 weeks for an oral exam and to pick up your next sets of aligners. Most ClearCorrect treatments take somewhere between 20-24 sets of aligners, so it typically takes about a year to achieve optimal results.
ClearCorrect & Invisalign
Invisalign and ClearCorrect are quite similar, though each system uses different, proprietary plastic materials. Invisalign and ClearCorrect are both gentle, removable, and invisible when worn, making both options ideal for young adults, professionals, and other patients looking to correct their smiles while avoiding the discomfort of traditional metal braces.
