Clear aligner therapy (under the brand name ClearCorrect™) is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without conventional wired braces. It uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without wires or brackets. So, up close it’s really hard for people to tell you’re wearing aligners. This treatment can give you the smile you’ve always wanted without the braces.
ClearCorrect aligners are similar to teeth whitening trays, except they are a lot more high tech. And yes, you can use your ClearCorrect aligners to whiten your teeth! You wear each set of aligners for 3 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move, little by little, until they have straightened to the final position prescribed.
You’ll visit your friendly dentists, Dr. Pevow about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, varying from case to case. A vast majority of adults and adolescents can be treated with ClearCorrect. Fixable problems include crowding, space closure, narrow arches, relapsed cases, open bite, and excessive overjet.
