Orthodontics have changed considerably in recent decades. Those who want a straight, uniform smile can achieve it without needing to wear metal braces. ClearCorrect invisible braces are plastic aligners that are customized to fit over your teeth. If you live near Seguin or New Braunfels, TX, you can visit Sapphire Creek Dental to learn more about ClearCorrect aligners for achieving a straight, beautiful smile.
ClearCorrect aligners work like braces to straighten misaligned teeth but do not have the brackets, wires and bands that are required with traditional braces. These aligners are created from 3-D images of your teeth. They are designed to fit perfectly over your bottom and top sets of teeth. Using constant pressure, the aligners adjust the position of your teeth. Every few weeks you receive a new set of aligners that is closer to the goal position for your smile. Treatment periods can be as little as six months to close to two years, depending on the extent of your misalignment.
Benefits of Clear Aligners Versus Metal Braces
ClearCorrect offers many advantages over metal or traditional braces. The most obvious reason people prefer clear aligners is that they are almost invisible. The clear plastic fits snuggly over your teeth and is very discreet while you wear them. Comfort is another big benefit of aligners. The rubbing and poking from brackets and wires on braces do not occur with ClearCorrect aligners. In addition, clear aligners can be removed, giving you the freedom to eat foods you want and to brush/floss your teeth without barriers. Braces require food restrictions and can make oral hygiene difficult.
