The Benefits of ClearCorrect
Most people prefer aligners that you can’t see to braces that you can see. That being said, ClearCorrect is only useful for those who have moderately misaligned teeth. Those who have very misaligned teeth will still need some kind of braces in order to correct their alignment problems. However, those who are candidates for ClearCorrect would find them preferable for a number of reasons and not just because they’re harder to see.
Most of our patients report that ClearCorrect is relatively comfortable while those with braces have difficulty eating different kinds of foods or find it difficult to clean their teeth after eating some kinds of foods. With ClearCorrect, you remove the aligner while you’re eating, enjoy whatever foods you want, brush your teeth, and then put it back on. Since you can take it off, you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in it and worrying about plaque buildup where the braces are. Additionally, the ClearCorrect aligners are made out of plastic as opposed to metal which makes them less irritating to your gums. Patients who opt for ClearCorrect do not report problems with sores in their mouth or other such issues.
ClearCorrect can manage a number of issues. These include:
ClearCorrect can reduce symptoms related to TMJ disorders as well. For those for whom ClearCorrect is an option, it usually presents the best option. For those whose alignment issues surpass what ClearCorrect can provide, traditional braces and invisible braces are still both available.
