If you have crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth, or if your upper and lower jaws are not aligned as they should be, you are likely a candidate for orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic treatment is designed to create a balanced relationship between the upper and lower jaws and move teeth into their correct positions. While in the past, braces were the most common treatment available for patients of all ages, there are many other options available today, including ClearCorrect. ClearCorrect braces work differently by using clear, removable aligners. The following is some basic information about this orthodontic option.
Our dentist will take radiographs, photographs, impressions, and other records to create a precise 3D model of your teeth. This model is used by the ClearCorrect laboratory to map out a treatment plan for you. Each aligner is created to gradually move teeth from their current places to their final positions. Once your treatment plan is complete, you will have access to your treatment set-up, a computerized representation of your smile now and as it will be once you complete treatment with ClearCorrect braces. If you are happy with your results, your customized aligners will be made.
Treatment with ClearCorrect braces has four distinct phases. During each phase of treatment, you will wear a new set of aligners for three weeks. You will wear your aligners all the time unless you are eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing. Results will be noticeable as your teeth gradually begin to adjust and shift into position. You will visit us periodically so that we can evaluate your progress and provide you with new aligners as needed. Most patients will be in active treatment for twelve to twenty-four months, depending on their needs and will be provided with six, twelve or an unlimited amount of aligners as needed to complete their case.
ClearCorrect braces can be used to treat teens and adults but may not be appropriate for children whose molars have not yet fully erupted, or older adults with complicated cases. It can be used to treat crowding, gaps, overbites, underbites, and rotated teeth. Call our orthodontist today to find out if ClearCorrect is right for you.
I've been going here since 2010 and I love this dental office! It's very convenient to my residence and they offer an array of services! I'm currently under Invisalign treatment and they gave me a great price! I highly recommend them for any of your dental needs!
I really like this dental office, dentists, and staff. The hygienist was very gentle and well mannered, she gave me tips on flossing and brushing properly, I highly recommend them to friends and family..

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
