Clear Correct™ Braces
Clear Correct in Greensboro, NC
Invisible Braces Overview
It’s a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth as you wear them, each aligner moving your teeth just a little bit at a time.
They’re practically invisible, so most people won’t even know you’re in treatment. They fit you perfectly, so they’re more comfortable than regular braces. They are also removable, so you can eat whatever you like and clean your teeth normally therefore you don’t have to change your diet like you might with braces.
Clear Correct results:
ClearCorrect can treat a wide variety of issues that keep people from achieving their ideal smiles. Straighter teeth don’t just look better; they work better too. Poorly-aligned teeth can interfere with bite function, wear out quicker, and are more prone to cavities.
Ask Dr. Farless or any of the team for more information about ClearCorrect and what it can do for you.
Clear Correct FAQ
What are Clear Correct Braces?
ClearCorrect is a system that straightens teeth. Where they differ from traditional braces is that they are clear. Similar to Invisalign, ClearCorrect straightens teeth gradually over time, eventually leaving the user with straight teeth and a revitalized smile.
How does ClearCorrect work?
ClearCorrect has a system made up of four phases. Each of the phases of aligner therapy includes aligners that are worn for three weeks. While it is essential that the invisible aligners are worn at almost all times, you do have flexibility to remove them when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
Each set is barely noticeable, but the resulting change to your teeth will be striking. Your teeth will slowly align to the perfect smile.
You will need to check in occasionally with Dr. Farless, who will evaluate your progress and give you your new set of aligners.
Treatment can take one to two years, depending upon the degree of misalignment and other conditions. There are three treatment options available. The cost of each treatment varies. To choose the treatment best for you, set up a consultation with Dr. Farless. The three options are:
- Unlimited: You’ll be provided with as many aligners as needed
- Limited 12: You’ll receive a maximum of 12 sets of aligners
- Limited 6: You’ll receive a maximum of 6 sets of aligners
How do I start treatment?
To begin treatment, make an appointment with Dr. Farless for an evaluation. He will determine the most effective treatment plan to provide you with a healthy and confident smile. He will take impressions, x-rays, and digital photographs of your teeth, and send them to ClearCorrect. These will be used to create your custom aligners.
How are my aligners created?
Once our office has completed the process of taking impressions, as well as detailed radio and photographs, we will send your information and prescription from Dr. Farless to the Clear Correct lab, so your aligners can be prepared.
The lab will use the information to create three-dimensional model of your teeth as they are today, so they can map out each phase of realignment to produce your perfect smile.
You’ll be able to approve a representation of the before and after, so you know what to expect from the treatment. Upon approval, your custom aligners are manufactured to your custom needs and you’ll be able to begin treatment.
Can I eat while wearing my aligners?
Remove your aligners when you eat, or brush and floss your teeth. They are easily removed, comfortable, and barely noticeable. You can eat any food you like – including gum or sticky caramel – without worrying that it will get stuck in your braces. Just make sure to brush thoroughly!
Can my child use ClearCorrect?
Just like Invisalign, ClearCorrect can help treat adults and some teens. Children who haven’t had their back molars or wisdom teeth yet may also be candidates, but they’ll need a dental consultation to be sure this is the best treatment option for their needs. If Dr. Farless recommends ClearCorrect, you can be sure that your child is old enough for the treatment.
What can ClearCorrect help correct?
The orthodontic conditions best treated by Clear Correct invisible braces include:
- Teeth that are crowded
- Small gaps between teeth
- Twisted or crooked teeth
Should I use ClearCorrect or traditional orthodontics?
Traditional orthodontics are useful for complex misalignments that ClearConnect cannot treat. The downside to metal braces, aside from being so visible, are that they are directly attached to the teeth until your orthodontic treatment is complete.
Normal oral hygiene is much more difficult with traditional metal braces in the way. ClearCorrect aligners, on the other hand, are custom fit to your teeth, and have none of these problems. Even the discomfort of traditional braces is mitigated by the reduced irritation from Clear Correct aligners.
Is ClearCorrect the same thing as Invisalign?
While very similar, Clear Correct and Invisalign do have distinct differences. Both offer “invisible braces” through an aligner that’s clear and custom made for you mouth.
The main difference between the two treatment options is the number of aligners used to achieve your best smile, and the time that it can take to complete the process. Consulting with your dentist will give you the best idea of what to expect during the treatment process with ClearCorrect braces.
How much does Clear Correct cost?
Since each treatment is custom to the patient, the costs of Clear Correct aligners will vary. Also, you’ll need to check with you dental insurance company to see if they cover part of the expense.
