When ClearCorrect Clear Aligners Might be Recommended for You

Clearcorrect Sacramento, CA

For people who are worried that wearing traditional braces might affect their smile's appearance, getting ClearCorrect clear aligners might be a better alternative. Patients can straighten their teeth discreetly with this option because the aligner trays are practically invisible on the teeth. However, not everyone is qualified for this treatment.

How ClearCorrect works

ClearCorrect is a system of transparent aligner trays that gradually shift the position of the teeth. Patients will get the first custom-made tray after the dentist takes impressions of their teeth. This tray will slightly alter the position of the teeth. Afterward, patients will get another tray, which will alter the teeth further. After wearing all the trays in the entire set, they will have the aligned teeth that they desire. The following are situations where the dentist might recommend ClearCorrect.

Dental misalignment

ClearCorrect can correct most instances of misaligned teeth. The method may be used by those with underbites, overbites, crossbites, open bites, gaps, or crowded teeth. However, this does not imply that everyone will find it effective. The dentist will evaluate the patient's situation and determine if the clear aligners are appropriate. For more severe cases, traditional braces might be the best bet.

Ready for the commitment

One of the reasons ClearCorrect is exclusively for individuals in a certain age group is that patients need to wear them as directed to get results. Since the clear aligner trays are removable, patients can take them out them at will. The system requires wearing them for at least 22 hours per day. This basically means wearing them all the time, except when eating or cleaning the teeth.

Some individuals may forget to wear them as directed or lose the trays. These individuals are unlikely to make significant improvements with ClearCorrect. The dentist will only recommend aligners if they are sure that the patient will be committed to the process.

A complete set of adult teeth

The dentist will only recommend teeth straightening treatments after the adult teeth have erupted. The reason is that it is hard to tell how children's adult teeth would develop. All the adult teeth must have erupted before the patient can get ClearCorrect. Some adults may retain a residual baby tooth or two in certain cases. This means that further orthodontic treatment will be necessary before starting the straightening treatment.

Excellent oral health

ClearCorrect aligner trays need excellent dental hygiene. Patients must have a healthy mouth and be willing to properly care for the trays to prevent infections or other problems. With ClearCorrect, patients need to be responsible and committed to the treatment. Before a dentist or orthodontist will recommend the procedure, they will ensure that the patient is free of oral health issues and practices good oral health habits.

In conclusion

There is a high possibility that the dentist will recommend ClearCorrect if you fit these requirements. Schedule an appointment to discuss more with the dentist.
