What Is Clear Aligner Therapy?

Basically, clear aligner therapy is a series of clear dental appliances that are formed to a patient’s shape/size of teeth. They gradually improve the alignment and appearance of your teeth by applying gentle pressure. Clear aligner therapy is becoming more and more popular as more patients discover the great results and ease of use. However, it’s important to know that not all clear aligners are the same quality.

The ClearCorrect Difference

You may have heard or seen commercials that are advertising cheaper, mail-order alternatives to ClearCorrect. While the idea may sound good in theory, it’s important to know the real difference between ClearCorrect and any mail-order options.

With ClearCorrect aligners, you get the major advantage of professional monitoring by the Team at Premier Dental. Mail-order aligners cannot offer real life dental care like Dr. Caye can. The process for ClearCorrect aligners begins with a consultation by Dr. Caye to determine if you are a good candidate. If so, the doctor scans the area of your chief complaint, to accurately measure current position of your teeth. This data is then analyzed and sent to ClearCorrect to begin fabrication of a treatment plan and a starter kit.

Know the Risks and Rewards

Alternative, mail-order alternatives cannot claim a dentist-approved stamp behind their process. Due to this, many patients using these systems are having to meet with their dentists to achieve the results they want.

Many dentists are having to correct and fix new and original issues left behind due to mail-order alignment systems. That’s why you always want to know your dentist is backing and monitoring your clear aligner therapy and treatment with ClearCorrect aligners. That way, you’ll always get the professional results you’re hoping for. This is because Dr. Caye will take accurate impressions of your teeth and send them off to the ClearCorrect laboratory, where an exact 3-D model of your teeth will be created. A team of experts will then map out a completely customized treatment plan using digital mapping and molding technology.

ClearCorrect aligners are:

  • Removable
  • Discreet
  • Comfortable
  • Dentist-approved
  • Provide no dietary restrictions
  • Have no obstructions to brushing or flossing

Invisible Braces: ClearCorrect Has Many Benefits

You can wear ClearCorrect aligners at any time, except when you’re eating and drinking. Aside from obvious aesthetic benefits where people will barely notice you have them in, you won’t have to worry about wires or brackets accompanying them.

With ClearCorrect, clear aligner therapy, you can treat various issues such as:

  • crowded teeth
  • crooked overbites
  • underbites
  • spaces between teeth

Furthermore, ClearCorrect is irritation free with little discomfort in the adjustment periods while wearing them. It is encouraged that you wear them 22 hours per day as you progress through treatment.

Straighter Teeth Encourage Better Hygiene

In addition to the aesthetic advantages, straighter teeth offer, they also provide a better environment for a healthier mouth. With straight teeth, keeping them clean is an easier task as it is much easier to brush and floss in between them.  This advantage eliminates the possibility of greater plaque buildup, and cavities as toothbrushes and floss can access crevices effectively.

The Importance of Enhancing Your Smile

A confident smile is important. A smile is much more than just straight, white teeth. When you feel confident in your smile, you feel confident in yourself and are prone to show off your smile frequently. The benefits of smiling and laughing are numerous.

According to an article from the University of West Alabama, “Research shows that those who consciously or subconsciously smile more live better and longer. Your body releases three hormones that make you feel good when you smile. They include dopamine, endorphins and serotonin. These signal to your body that you’re happy, and in turn, you feel happier.”

Dentistry has traditionally focused on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing and treating oral disease. However, dentists who are highly skilled at cosmetic dentistry procedures give their patients additional options to improve the appearance of their teeth, smile and mouth. In other words, restorative dentistry, also referred to as general and/or family dentistry practices address dental problems that require necessary treatment; whereas cosmetic dentistry provides elective – or desired – treatments and services.

Do You Want a Whiter Smile?

It’s no secret that one of the effects of aging and a lifestyle that includes things like tea, coffee or smoking is stained teeth. It’s also not a secret that most people would prefer to keep their smiles whiter than they are, but don’t often have a lot of success. There are countless over the counter products available at your local pharmacy or grocery store, home remedies that promise to lighten your teeth a few shades and expensive dental procedures, but people want teeth whitening services that are both affordable and effective.

clearcorrect-invisible-braces Whether it’s because of how your appearance will change, the awkwardness of metal being in your mouth, or how meticulous you have to be in cleaning them, braces can be daunting. But they don’t have to be, especially if they are clear and easy to maneuver invisible braces. Since many people are turning to more transparent alternatives to regular braces, ClearCorrect is a very accurate solution to set your teeth in place and looking fresh.

Invisible Braces: What is ClearCorrect?

ClearCorrect are invisible braces that were created in 2006 as transparent aligners that simplify and improve the position of teeth. They straighten teeth using custom-made, removable aligners that move your teeth bit by bit. Using 3-D and computerized technology to assess your teeth, results in a detailed evaluation of your teeth and their current alignment. As a result, you will receive the most suitable fit of invisible braces for your mouth.

There are three clear options for improving your teeth:

  1. There’s the Limited 6 option, which treats the full arch, covering all premolars.
  2. Then there’s the Limited 12 option alternative where 12 sets of alignments are provided for extended treatment.
  3. Lastly, there’s an unlimited option where you can get as many sets of aligners as are required for your treatment. This final option allows for an uncapped amount of revisions to your aligners over a three-year span.

Most cases require up to two years of treatment, depending on how much adjustment your teeth need.

It’s sometimes said that you can tell a lot about a person from their smile, so what does your smile say about you?

For the majority of people, the obvious desired response would be along the lines of; beauty, warmth, attractiveness, and an overall since of positivity. While certainly this may be true, unfortunately even the brightest of smiles can be dampened by the often-unforgiving test of time.  As beautiful as a pearly white “Hollywood Smile” can be, the life of a tooth is usually far from glamorous. Charged with the difficult task of breaking down food particles for consumption, your teeth often take a heck of a beating, and while tough and sturdy by nature, a prolonged period of this will certainly begin to take its toll. From slight discoloration to large protruding dark stains, the unsightly wear and tear on a once flawless smile is a sad sight indeed; however, it certainly doesn’t have to be!
