ClearCorrect

ClearCorrect is an aligner that helps to straighten the teeth and addresses malocclusions. It is an orthodontic treatment that uses aligners made of dental-grade clear plastic that are customized for each patient. This treatment has been showing highly effective results among patients who had it. ClearCorrects are an advanced treatment system that is an excellent alternative for those who, for one reason or another, would not want traditional braces. Michael Lum DDS provides ClearCorrect as an aesthetic solution to fix the teeth.

How Does ClearCorrect Work?

The aligner is custom designed and fabricated according to the condition of the patient’s teeth. They are fixed on to the teeth, which exerts pressure on them that helps push the teeth to the desired position. ClearCorrect has to be worn 22 hours a day for its effect to show on the teeth. 

The aligners are replaced every two to four weeks according to the changed shape of the teeth. How long the treatment lasts differs from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the defect of the teeth. During and after the treatment, it is necessary to follow the instructions of the dentist on what to avoid. 

Benefits of Clear Correct

  • Unlike traditional braces, they are nearly invisible on the teeth and do not make the patient conscious of their appearance.
  • ClearCorrect does not obstruct brushing and flossing as they are removable appliances. 
  • They are more comfortable to wear compared to traditional braces as they do not have metal fittings attached to the teeth.
  • It is a convenient option for correcting teeth that require fewer visits to the dentist. 
  • It provides beautiful and healthy dental results for the patient.

Cost and Time of the Treatment

ClearCorrects are customized according to each patient's requirement, and the cost of the treatment differs from person to person. The cost also depends on factors like the expertise of the dentist and the location of the dentistry. 

Aftercare has to be strictly followed for faster results. Minor defects may take approximately a year for complete results. It may take up to three years to reflect the change for more significant defects. 

ClearCorrects are aesthetically the better option compared to traditional braces. It does not cause any interruptions and provides confidence to the patients about their appearance..
