Braces have always been the go-to when it comes to straightening your teeth. But over the last decade or so, several alternatives to braces have been making a splash in the dental world. One of the most popular is ClearCorrect, a braces alternative designed to be invisible while worn.

What is ClearCorrect?

ClearCorrect is a transparent orthodontic device used as an alternative to metal braces. These clear aligners are made of plastic and formed to fit your mouth and teeth. ClearCorrect devices are removable, but for them to work, you do have to wear them for most of the day. Most dentists only recommend removing ClearCorrect to eat.

How long do you have to wear ClearCorrect?

While traditional braces are generally worn for 1-3 years, ClearCorrect typically achieves results much faster, depending on the patient’s teeth. How quickly they work is probably the most significant selling point for patients looking to avoid metal braces.

Do you have to get clear aligners adjusted?

Unlike traditional braces, you do not need monthly or even weekly appointments to adjust ClearCorrect. Usually, your dentist will give you a few months of supplies, and you will use new aligners every two weeks. Then you will need to see your dentist around every three months to check your progress.

Is ClearCorrect Right For Me?

You’ll need to visit a dentist to find out which one is right for you. A dentist can closely analyze your situation to see if ClearCorrect is the right option. This can include a series of x-rays to ensure your teeth will see the improvement you’re looking for. In most cases, a patient’s misaligned teeth can typically be addressed with ClearCorrect.
