ClearCorrect vs Braces

Dental braces have been used traditionally to correct teeth that have become misaligned, crowded or are protruding. Metal dental braces adjust the placement of teeth over time to create a more attractive and more functional smile. Despite ClearCorrect, metal braces are composed primarily of brackets, arch wires and other similar components that are then placed across the teeth using elastic ties to secure each portion of the metal braces. It is the flexible parts and wires that are attached to the brackets that exert constant pressure on the teeth as a way to re-position teeth that are out of alignment.

A Unique Type Of Clear Aligner

Brackets and arch wires must be regularly adjusted in order to achieve success. In most cases metal braces can gain the desired results in less than a year while other cases may require two or more years to reach the expected results. Conversely, ClearCorrect is a unique type of clear aligner that is often used as an alternative to metal dental braces. ClearCorrect is ideal for correcting crowded or crooked teeth or teeth that are widely spaced apart. Even an overbite, cross bite or under bite can be corrected using ClearCorrect. Perhaps most attractive of all when it comes to ClearCorrect is that it is virtually invisible and hard to detect while being worn.

The clear aligners are created by a computer and straighten teeth while not compromising an individual’s smile or appearance. In addition, ClearCorrect is removable making it easy to brush, floss, eat and drink. That said the plastic clear aligners should be worn for a minimum of 20 hours each day. With so much to offer it is clear to see why ClearCorrect continues to increase in popularity as a more subtle way of correcting teeth misalignment in people of all ages. Contact your dentist in Elk Grove, Dr. My Huynh at Laguna Park Dentistry for more information on ClearCorrect or metal braces as required.
