Clear Correct is specifically designed for patients who want straighter teeth without showing that they are wearing visible metal braces. These clear plastic aligners are custom made for each individual. There are no wires or brackets involved. With this new invention, now is a great time to wear braces. First, the doctors at LaserDentalAssociates.com take records which help in forming just the right custom treatment plan for each patient. Next, an impression will be taken of your teeth. The photos and impressions are then sent to be made into your invisible braces. All work is done in the U.S.A., not overseas. You will receive your aligners as your case progresses, not all at once. You and your doctor will determine the best treatment plan for your individual needs. The aligners are BPA free and will not irritate your cheeks or gums like traditional metal braces do. They must be worn throughout the day, but may be removed for eating, flossing, and brushing. This also allows for better periodontal health. With each new set of aligners your teeth will gradually start to move into the predetermined position. Each set of trays can move the teeth up to a quarter of a millimeter. This simple process only requires an occasional checkup with the dentist, which gives this type of braces yet another advantage. The length of time you wear the Clear Correct braces is usually comparable to that of traditional braces. Braces are not just for children, teeth can be moved at any age. The American Association of Orthodontists states that one in five patients use some type of orthodontic assistance as an adult. Most adults do not choose traditional braces and therefore Clear Correct is a viable option.
