ClearCorrect is a popular orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners to straighten teeth. It's a great option for people who want a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces. Here's what you can expect during your ClearCorrect treatment.
The ClearCorrect process begins with a consultation with a dentist or orthodontist. During the first visit one of our experienced clinicians will carry out a free 3D scan of your teeth using the latest digital technology. It’s a completely painless experience and ensures we have the information needed to create your custom clear aligners. They will evaluate your teeth and determine if ClearCorrect is the right option for you. If so, the 3D scan of your teeth will be used to create your custom aligners.
Once your aligners are ready, you will begin wearing them for at least 22 hours a day. You'll switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks as your teeth gradually shift into their desired position. Throughout your treatment, you'll visit your dentist or orthodontist periodically to ensure that your progress is on track.
The length of your ClearCorrect treatment will depend on the severity of how much your teeth need to move and your individual treatment plan. Most people wear their aligners for between 6 and 18 months, although some treatments may take longer.
ClearCorrect can help to address a range of dental issues, including crowding, gaps, and bite problems. By the end of your treatment, you can expect to have straighter, more evenly spaced teeth and an improved bite.
