ClearCorrect™ Orthodontic treatment is a specialized process that combines teeth straightening and physical, facial changes with the power of clear, removable aligners. The purpose of orthodontics is to achieve your ideal look that will remain stable throughout your entire life and improve the function of your bite. Today’s technology allows you to do this on your terms.

Why Choose ClearCorrect™ Orthodontics?
Millions of Americans use clear braces for their orthodontic treatment. Why? Well, the traditional form of braces with its wires and brackets just doesn’t appeal to everyone. Especially if it impedes how one can perform his job or hobby. Clear braces offer a no-metal solution.
ClearCorrect™ Orthodontics offers invisible braces to straighten teeth with a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner moves teeth by degrees until a straight, beautiful smile is achieved.
How Do Clear Aligners Work?
ClearCorrect™ aligners are fabricated from a clear plastic, designed to blend with your individual smile. This aligner treatment offers orthodontic correction but discreetness. To achieve the best result possible, patients receive small, tooth-colored bumps (called attachments) on several of their teeth. Attachments act as anchors for your aligners, helping them to fit more snugly against your teeth and move teeth more efficiently.
Once your teeth are prepared for your clear aligners, and your clear aligners have been returned from the lab to you, the work begins. Wear your aligners for 22 hours a day, seven days a week, removing them to eat and when you are brushing/flossing. Commit to this routine for the duration of your treatment and you will achieve your results before you know it!
What Problems Do ClearCorrect™ Orthodontics Correct?
Like traditional braces, ClearCorrect™ Orthodontics work to improve the following common conditions:
- Misaligned teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Bite problems (overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite)
During your orthodontic consultation, we will create a unique treatment plan so you can obtain the straight, attractive smile you desire.
How Time-Consuming is ClearCorrect™ Daily Maintenance?
Keeping your clear aligners clean is as easy as scrubbing them with a toothbrush and water. You can also use antibacterial hand soap and a toothbrush to boost your cleaning efforts if needed. Make sure you rinse the aligners (and your toothbrush) well before repositioning the aligners your mouth. (Do not eat with the aligners in your mouth. Remove before eating and clean them in between).
How Long Before You Can See Results?
The exact timeframe for results with your ClearCorrect™ Orthodontics system depends on the severity of your case and how diligently you wear your aligners. But, typically, it takes about 12 months to complete treatment. Dedicating yourself to wearing the aligners the prescribed amount of time each day and not missing your office appointments will also help speed along the treatment process. Also, keeping your teeth free from tooth decay is essential to stay on target with your treatment time. Tooth decay can delay treatment completion dates.

What are the Benefits of ClearCorrect™ Orthodontics?
When it comes to deciding which orthodontic treatment you want to pursue, consider the benefits ClearCorrect™ Orthodontics can offer you:
- Nearly invisible appliances
- No dietary restrictions
- No obstructions to flossing or brushing
- Controlled single-tooth movement
- Remote monitoring options
- Improved confidence
It is amazing to see all the power in a bit of plastic! But the results are real.
What Happens After Treatment is Over?
Once you have completed your ClearCorrect™ treatment, you will be fitted with a retainer to keep your teeth from moving back to their former position. Most retainers are worn while you sleep. There are also permanent retainer options that affix to the back of your teeth to keep your teeth in place following treatment. Schedule biannual dental exams at our office so we can continue to monitor your bite, alignment, and overall oral health.
