When we realize that our permanent set of teeth, and those teeth are coming in crooked, we often consider wearing braces. Unfortunately, these days there are lots of different options to consider. Traditional, ceramic, lingual, invisible – which one is best for you? Fortunately, this decision is based on the treatment plan you and your dental professional will discuss together based on your particular situation.
These days, it seems invisible braces are the way to go. So many companies are offering you ways to straighten your teeth through a mail system. Consider talking to your dental professional before choosing this option because your smile is a snowflake and needs to be looked after personally.
With ClearCorrect invisible braces, your dentist or orthodontist can straighten your teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner moves your teeth just a little bit at a time until you eventually get your dream smile.
First, your dentist will take impressions, photos, and x-rays of your teeth that ClearCorrect uses in manufacturing your custom aligners. Your impressions, photos and x-rays will be sent to ClearCorrect, along with a prescription for your new custom aligners. A 3D model of your teeth will then be created. This model will be used for you and your dentist to see the projected results of treatment. When you are satisfied with the projected results, ClearCorrect with begin manufacturing your custom aligners.
You will wear the aligners at all times, except when eating, drinking and brushing/flossing. The good thing is, ClearCorrect aligners are barely noticeable and won’t interfere with daily life. Your teeth will slowly adjust and align with each new aligner you receive. Eventually you will have the straight beautiful smile you have always dreamed of.
