ClearCorrect may not remove stains from the teeth, but it can make the teeth look brighter. The clear aligners are made of a material that is slightly less opaque than your teeth, so they allow light to pass through and reach the tooth surface. However, the primary purpose of ClearCorrect aligners is to straighten the teeth.
The teeth can become misaligned because of several causes, chief among them being overcrowding. The teeth can get overcrowded when the permanent teeth erupt on each other. This causes the teeth to be crooked and increases the risk of poor hygiene. Genetics, injury, and trauma can also cause the teeth to get misaligned.
Several teeth alignment treatments are available that you can use to straighten your teeth. Apart from the metal braces, you can use Invisible aligners like ClearCorrect to achieve similar results.
This alternative treatment uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. ClearCorrect is nearly invisible when worn, so most people won’t even know you’re wearing them. Here are a few factors:
ClearCorrect and Invisalign are invisible and removable aligners designed to reposition the teeth. However, the two have a few differences, which include:
ClearCorrect is made of a thinner material, making them lighter and less noticeable than the Invisalign aligners. But, it is assumed that the thinner material makes the aligners less durable than the Invisalign braces.
Invisalign aligners are designed from a patented thermoplastic material that is biocompatible and gentle on the gums. The ClearCorrect aligners are crafted from polyurethane resin, which is thinner and clearer.
ClearCorrect treatment uses a series of aligners depending on the severity of the malocclusion. Our dentist in Hialeah will recommend either Limited 6, which has six aligners, Limited 12, and unlimited aligners.
The Invisalign has a series of aligners, including Invisalign Lite, Full, first, Teen, i7, Express 5, and Invisalign assist.
Both the ClearCorrect and Invisalign aligners are used to correct minor to moderate bite problems and thus take a few months to straighten the treatment. The duration is 10 to 12 months for Invisalign, and 13.5 to see positive results when using ClearCorrect.
The ClearCorrect treatment is done in three phases:
A 3D digital scan takes precise images of the jaw and the teeth. These images are utilized to create the set of aligners. The scan also aids in determining the amount of pressure to apply on the teeth and how they should move.
You will get a series of aligners to be worn for 22 hours a day, 14 days each set. Follow the directions given by the dentist while wearing the aligners. If you do not follow the instructions, the straightening process may take longer.
The dentist will provide you with a retainer to keep your teeth in the new arrangement after using the aligners. If you don’t wear the gadget, your teeth will return to their original position.
