At Boss Dental Care in Corpus Christi, TX we offer a full array of dental treatments, including cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics. It is why we provide patients with access to ClearCorrect clear aligners – a reliable method for correcting a smile with any number of spacing or bite issues. Unfortunately, many people mistakenly describe them as clear braces, and though both braces and aligners achieve the same goals, they are very different things. Let’s take some time to look at the basic ClearCorrect facts to help you understand more.
Basic ClearCorrect Facts
As your preferred dentist in Corpus Christi, we will help you to decide if you are a good candidate for ClearCorrect. While it can help, most patients enjoy a straighter smile and corrected bite, it might not be for everyone. If you are a candidate for this form of orthodontics, we will then take detailed molds of your teeth and then send them to a specialized lab. There, a series of trays is made just for you and which will slowly push your teeth into the proper position.
Naturally, one of the most important ClearCorrect facts is the answer to one of the most common questions: How are they different from braces? As we just learned, they are transparent or clear trays that slide over your teeth and remain undetected by those speaking with you or looking at you. They have no wires, metal or other issues that lead to discomfort.
ClearCorrect also works just as quickly as traditional braces with the added bonus of not requiring so many office visits. That series of trays are made for you, and you will come in for periodic exams and receive any new trays that you might require.
Of course, one of the most popular of all ClearCorrect facts is this: they come out for eating and drinking as well as oral hygiene. One of the worst issues with braces is that they make oral hygiene incredibly difficult. ClearCorrect just pops out for flossing and brushing. You will also clean the aligners with a soft brush and proper cleansers, and then pop them back in place.
