Everyone wants to achieve a straighter smile. Not only can addressing crooked teeth improve the appearance of your smile, but it can also improve the health and function of your smile. The most common way to address orthodontic issues is with traditional metal braces. For patients seeking an alternative to metal braces, we offer clear braces, also known as invisible braces.
At Greenway Dental Care, we offer ClearCorrect, a clear aligners system that is designed to straighten crooked teeth. It is similar to Invisalign in that it gives patients a discreet and comfortable solution to address their orthodontic concerns. ClearCorrect utilizes a series of clear, removable aligns that gradually shift the teeth until they reach the appropriate position.
Dr. Keech provides ClearCorrect for patients who are searching for an effective, simple solution to address crooked or misaligned teeth. If you want to explore your treatment options, visit our Fayetteville cosmetic dentistry to determine if clear braces are the right solution for you.
ClearCorrect Aligners in Fayetteville, AR
In many cases, ClearCorrect is ideal for teens and adults with minor to moderate orthodontic concerns. For patients interested in clear braces, we recommend visiting our Fayetteville dentist office for a consultation. ClearCorrect aligners are made of stain and crack-resistant material that is thin yet durable. The clear aligners will not irritate the soft tissues of the gums and can be removed to brush and floss teeth or for eating. There are no dietary restrictions with this treatment method. In addition, because ClearCorrect aligners are invisible, they are less noticeable than traditional metal braces. ClearCorrect is a more economical alternative to other orthodontic methods while maintaining consistent results.
ClearCorrect can be used to address the following orthodontic conditions:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps or spaces between the teeth
Patients who choose clear braces can look forward to these key benefits:
- Convenience: Patients can remove their aligners for special occasions, to perform their oral hygiene routine, and eat.
- Effectiveness: Patients should wear their aligners for at least 22 hours a day to achieve their desired results.
- Conservative: Aligners are created using a clear material which means others will hardly notice you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
How Does ClearCorrect Work?
ClearCorrect treatment is performed in multiple phases. During each phase, the patient wears their aligners for three-week increments. Similar to Invisalign treatment, patients can remove their ClearCorrect aligner to eat, drink, and perform their daily oral hygiene routine. Aligners are to be worn at all times outside of eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Patients will begin to notice results as they switch aligners. The aligners are designed to slowly reposition the teeth into the desired placement.
Greenway Dental Care will schedule periodic check-ups to ensure your teeth are responding to treatment. If necessary, adjustments can be made during treatment.
