Teeth Straightening: Braces to Aligners

posted in: Orthodontic | 0

Are you thinking about straightening your teeth? It’s a big step, and we’re sure you have a ton of questions. We’re here today to help you feel at ease with whatever form of teeth straightening is right for you and your budget. Don’t let crooked teeth get you down.

Traditional Braces

This teeth-straightening route has been time-tested and delivers consistent results. On average, the process can take anywhere from 20 months to three years, and then you can enjoy life from behind a beautiful, straighter smile. Of course, there are a few drawbacks. Many people—young and old—don’t want to spend that indefinite amount of time with a mouth full of metal. The thought of looking back at old pictures of themselves and seeing a metallic, silver smile has made people think twice about going through the whole teeth-straightening process.

Additionally, keeping up with your oral healthcare routine can be difficult and dietary restrictions pesky. While traditional orthodontics still may be the best option for patients with more complex spacing or alignment issues, there is now a way to subtly straighten your teeth without all the drawbacks that traditional braces bring.

ClearCorrect® Clear Aligners

Are you ready to experience the revolution in teeth straightening for yourself? We’re excited to offer our patients ClearCorrect, the clear plastic aligner trays that subtly straighten your smile. This is an excellent option for teens and adults who are hoping to achieve the smile of their dreams without all the brackets and wires. The aligners are 100% removable, which means you don’t have to eliminate food like popcorn or gum from your diet and can carry on with your normal oral healthcare routine. You can get results in as little six months.

The ClearCorrect Process involves coming into our office, so we can make your custom trays and design an appointment schedule for you to come see us at regular intervals (but not quite as frequent as with traditional braces). You’ll get a series of aligners at a time and be instructed on when to switch them out for the next set. It’s as easy as that!
