What are ClearCorrect aligners?
ClearCorrect aligners are a non-surgical treatment option for occurrences of malocclusion. Malocclusion is a name for the improper alignment of teeth, for example when teeth overlap, creating areas of pressure and gapping within the mouth. ClearCorrect is an invisible type of aligner that sits over the teeth and gently shifts them back into the correct position. Unlike other types of aligners, the ClearCorrect brand supplied at Haw Family Dentistry offers a variety of benefits, including protecting the aesthetic beauty of your smile, so you can wear them without losing confidence in your appearance. Most aligners, including ClearCorrect, need to be worn for 20-22 hours a day for several weeks, if not months, in order to see long-lasting positive effects.
Reasons to get ClearCorrect aligners
In Brigham City, Utah, we recommend ClearCorrect aligners as the best solution for malocclusion. There are many reasons why they are superior to other types of aligners. Firstly, our patients have found them much more comfortable than traditional wire and bracket aligners. As you will need to be wearing them almost constantly, comfort should be paramount. ClearCorrect aligners are also much easier to remove and replace, meaning your dietary habits don’t need to change as you will be able to briefly remove the aligners to eat if necessary. Whereas traditional aligners can cause food and floss to become trapped within the wires, there are no such concerns with ClearCorrect. Finally, they are made from polyurethane resin, a clear and safe plastic that has revolutionized dental practices. This means they are clear, and almost invisible when worn. At Haws Family Dentistry we have found this puts many people at ease, as it offers a discreet solution to malocclusion that never compromises your smile or your self-confidence.
How to get ClearCorrect aligners
If you suspect you may suffer from malocclusion and therefore need aligners, your first step is to contact Haws Family Dentistry in Brigham City, Utah, and set up an appointment. During this session, one of our highly trained dentists will examine your teeth and discuss your oral health, including any need for aligner treatment. If an aligner is required, we will then begin the process to make sure you acquire one perfectly suited to your needs. Our dentist will scan your teeth, then map out a digital plan for the treatment, allowing you to see the stages required and how long it will take to get your teeth into their optimal position. We will then send the digital scans to an expert facility where your first set of aligners will be 3d printed, and ready to wear within a month. As part of your treatment, it is likely you will need several sets of ClearCorrect aligners, each calibrated to continue the gentle repositioning of your teeth over the course of the treatment. At Haws Family Dentistry in Brigham City, Utah, we make sure to see all our patients through this process as smoothly and painlessly as possible, helping you to have the teeth you deserve.
