ClearCorrect™

ClearCorrect™ a clear alternative to traditional braces?

The ClearCorrect transparent orthodontic aligner system is a comfortable, lifestyle-friendly alternative to braces. Practically invisible, these innovative clear braces are an ideal solution for people who want to improve the appearance of their smile without calling undue attention to their teeth in the process. Thanks to ClearCorrect and similar aligner systems it's now possible to straighten teeth without braces, wires and brackets.

Unlike traditional wire and ceramic dental braces, which are "permanently" cemented in place, ClearCorrect clear braces use a series of custom-made removable aligners to straighten your teeth. Designed to work in stages, each transparent aligner moves your teeth just a tiny bit so that over time your teeth eventually straighten. In addition to improving the appearance of your smile, ClearCorrect clear braces can straighten and align teeth that are crooked or turned. ClearCorrect aligners work whether your teeth are crowded or spaced and can correct most overbites and underbites.

The Advantages of ClearCorrect Are, Dare We Say, “Clear”

The lifestyle advantages of ClearCorrect clear braces are pretty significant. Made out of a transparent plastic, ClearCorrect aligners' superior clarity renders them virtually undetectable. Many people find the custom-molded fit of ClearCorrect a more comfortable, less irritating alternative to braces. Since the aligners are easily removed, caring for your teeth is easy and requires no change in your oral hygiene regimen. Best of all, you can eat whatever you like without fear of "gumming up" your wire braces.

ClearCorrect clear braces are becoming increasingly popular with teens and adults. In addition to being comfortable and low-maintenance, ClearCorrect aligners offer a distinct advantage over several other systems which straighten teeth without braces. ClearCorrect clear braces are surprisingly affordable because they were specifically developed to meet the needs of budget-minded patients. As an added benefit, many dentists who provide ClearCorrect also offer affordable payment plans to suit your needs.

A Proven System To Straighten Teeth Without Braces

Since the 1940s, dentists and orthodontists have been working on methods to straighten teeth without braces. This 60+ year initiative has led to the development of aligner-based teeth straightening systems like ClearCorrect clear braces.


The process used in the manufacture of ClearCorrect clear braces is quite remarkable. After determining if you're a good candidate for ClearCorrect, your dentist or orthodontist will take impressions, photos and X-rays of your teeth. These materials will be sent to ClearCorrect's laboratory where a computer will be used to make an exact 3D model of your teeth. Working closely with your doctor, ClearCorrect will then map out a complete dental treatment plan. Next, you and your doctor will review the projected results of your treatment as a computer representation of your teeth.

Once the projected results meet your approval, ClearCorrect will use the most advanced digital mapping and molding technology to craft a custom series of dental aligners. These are sent to your doctor for delivery to you.

ClearCorrect clear braces are meant to be worn around the clock. The only time you should remove them is for eating, drinking and daily dental care. Each aligner should be worn for a two-week period and then discarded. You'll be able to monitor your progress as aligner by aligner your teeth transform into the smile you've always wanted. Occasional visits to your doctor are required to ensure that your treatment is progressing according to plan.

Are Clear Braces and Aligners For Everyone?

While ClearCorrect aligners are an effective way to straighten teeth without braces, they may not be the best choice for everyone. Most dentists feel metal or ceramic dental braces are more appropriate when the patient is unlikely to keep the removable aligner in his or her mouth for at least 22 hours a day. Children who've yet to develop all their molars, seniors with complicated dental problems and patients with severe malocclusion or spacing issues are often better suited for traditional braces. Only your dentist can tell for sure if ClearCorrect aligners are the right solution for you.

A Game Changing Alternative to Braces

Though generally trouble-free, a few issues have been reported regarding aligner-based teeth straightening systems. Some patients complain that clear braces affect their speech. This is usually a temporary issue which resolves itself over time. In rare instances, allergic reactions to they type of plastic used to manufacture the aligners have been seen. Also, aligners don't offer dentists the same level of flexibility to alter the treatment plan as traditional braces.

ClearCorrect clear braces are a dream come true if you're one of the millions of people who's put off straightening your teeth out of fear of embarrassment or concerns over cost. Ask your dentist if you're a good candidate for this impressive alternative to braces.
