Orthodontia has come a long way since its early days. Those awkward, uncomfortable metal braces are no longer the only option for straightening your teeth. In fact, there are so many options for aligners these days that you may not know which one is the right choice for you. Here, we offer some information about ClearCorrect Aligners and how they compare to Invisalign.
Invisalign has been around for longer, so the product is more commonly known than ClearCorrect. The two brands of aligners, however, have many similarities. They’re each worn for about 22 hours a day, and they each feature clear aligner trays that can be taken out of the mouth when the patient needs to eat or for dental hygiene purposes. Each set of aligners is custom made for the individual patient, using 3D printing technology to create aligners that exactly fit the person’s mouth. This is a quick and easy method for shaping aligners that has largely replaced the old method of making molds of a person’s mouth. The patient wears a set of aligners for a few weeks and then graduates to a new set, which allows the teeth to shift over time to reveal a beautiful smile.
Which conditions can be treated with these kinds of aligners? ClearCorrect and Invisalign are applicable to the same set of dental issues. People with an overbite, underbite, crowding, or gaps and spaces can all be helped using clear aligners to improve their smile. Overall, they’re a great alternative to traditional metal braces.
Current research indicates that about one quarter of orthodontic patients are adults. Adults are choosing to undergo orthodontic treatment because clear aligners make that treatment convenient and discreet. What’s more, nearly 80 percent of adults who have had their teeth straightened say it was one of the most valuable transformations they’ve ever undergone, and 90 percent said it positively impacted their confidence to have straighter teeth. If your teeth aren’t as straight as you like or you’re unhappy with your smile, what’s holding you back? Make the decision to straighten your teeth and improve your smile today!
