ClearCorrect. How clear aligners work.

ClearCorrect is a clear aligner system used to straighten teeth as an alternative to traditional braces. ClearCorrect straightens teeth using a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that gradually move teeth, eventually correcting the teeth and smile to achieve a new, revitalized look. Orthodontic records — including impressions, photographs and radiographs, along with a prescription for custom-made aligners — are sent by the dentist to the ClearCorrect laboratory, where an exact 3-D model of teeth is created.  The treatment team then maps out a complete treatment plan showing the gradual realignment that will reposition teeth from their current position to where dentist wants them to be.  Using the most up-to-date digital mapping and molding technology, custom aligners then are created with computer precision. 

ClearCorrect aligners are worn all the time, except when eating and drinking, or while brushing and flossing. Designed with aesthetics in mind, the aligners are barely noticeable and won’t have an impact on daily routine.

After wearing each aligner set, results will be noticeable as teeth begin slowly adjusting and aligning to your desired smile. Periodic check-ups with dentist are required so the progress can be evaluated and patient can be given the next set of aligners. This sequence will continue until patient have achieved a new smile.

ClearCorrect can be used to treat the following orthodontic conditions:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Spacing between teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crooked or turned (rotated) teeth

Only your dentist can determine if ClearCorrect is the right orthodontic treatment option for you.
