ClearCorrect

Your friends and family won’t be able to tell that you’re undergoing treatment when you choose ClearCorrect to straighten teeth. When placed over teeth, the series of clear aligners is virtually invisible to the naked eye. Each of these aligners applies a small amount of pressure to your problematic teeth, shifting them into a straighter position. Not only will you be able to smile with confidence, but you’ll also be able to practice daily brushing and flossing with ease and eat the foods you want without worry. When you’ve finished eating or practicing oral care, simply continue wearing the aligners.

Invisalign

Invisalign is an older system that works in the same way as ClearCorrect. It also makes it easy to straighten teeth and realign your bite without the use of metal hardware traditionally used for orthodontics. However, both Invisalign and ClearCorrect have minor differences that make each system better for specific orthodontic issues. When you come in for a consultation, we’ll determine which system will work best for you. Regardless of the system you choose, you should expect treatment time to be between 12 and 18 months, which is still much shorter than the two or three years that’s needed for results with metal braces.
