How Does it Work
ClearCorrect makes straightening your teeth
easy from start to finish.
You should know that clear aligners ( invisible braces) may not work well for most patients . The farther the teeth have to be moved, the better off the person would be with treatment in an orthodontist office. First, we would need to take models, x-rays and photos of the teeth to see if the aligners would work for you.
Some examples of people that are not good candidates for clear aligners are:
- Patients having a history of TMJ symptoms like pain around their jaw joints or
chewing muscles. Clicking or popping noises from the jaw joints.
- Children under 14 years old or if all the permanent teeth are not present.
- History of Osteoporosis or cancer therapy.
- Active gum disease or loose teeth.
Examples of patients that clear aligners might work well would be for:
- Minor movements of front teeth.
- Patients that have completed orthodontic treatment and now their teeth have moved.
- Patients willing to wear the clear aligners all day and night.
Your Custom Treatment Plan
Your doctor sends your records—your impressions, photos, and x-rays—to ClearCorrect with a prescription for your custom aligners. ClearCorrect uses your records to create exact 3D models of your teeth. Then working with your doctor every step of the way, and following the precise instructions provided on your prescription, ClearCorrect maps out a complete treatment plan of gradual adjustment that takes your teeth from where they are currently to where you and your doctor want them to end up. Once completed, you and your doctor will be able to preview the projected results of your treatment in your "treatment set-up," a computer representation of your teeth before and after treatment.
Your Aligners are Computer-Crafted
When you and your doctor are satisfied with the projected results shown in your treatment set-up, the manufacturing process begins. Using the latest digital mapping and molding technology, ClearCorrect creates your custom aligners with computer precision. ClearCorrect then sends your aligners to your doctor for delivery to you.
Progress Wearing Your Aligners
You'll wear your aligners all the time, except while eating and drinking or during daily tooth care, such as brushing and flossing. Your ClearCorrect aligners are so clear they are barely noticeable so they won't have an impact on your day to day life.
