Before the introduction of Invisalign the only option your orthodontist had to correct the position of your teeth was traditional wire braces. Traditional braces can be painful and unsightly. In 1997 Invisalign clear trays gave orthodontist a revolutionary way to straighten and correct the position of teeth. In 2006 ClearCorrect was introduced and is now one of the most popular choices used to straighten teeth. Both products are high quality alternatives to traditional braces and can give you a beautiful straight smile over time.
Benefits of Invisalign and ClearCorrect
Both Invisalign and ClearCorrect are virtually invisible so no one knows you are wearing them. Both products are made from clear plastic and can be removed and cleaned easily. The trays fit over your teeth so there is no invasive treatments and can be used by people who are allergic to metal. You wear both products for most of the day removing them to eat and drink, brush, and floss. Every two to four weeks you will receive new trays which adjust the position of your teeth a little bit at a time.
Straighter Teeth with Invisalign and ClearCorrect
Unlike traditional metal braces, there are no invasive procedures to affix the dentures to your gums and teeth. You will receive custom made clear plastic trays to wear during the day. These trays move your teeth into place gradually. Every two to four weeks you’ll return to the office to get your new trays and the doctor will monitor your teeth’s progress as they move into place. How long you will need to wear the trays will depend on the severity of the misalignment of your teeth.
Wearing the clear trays is very simple. Pop them in and remove them when you eat and drink, and to brush and floss. Since they are invisible, no one will know you are wearing them.
