Clear Correct Braces
What is Clear Correct?
Clear Correct is the invisible way to straighten teeth without braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires.
How does Clear Correct work?
Clear Correct uses 3-D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position from which a series of custom-made, clear “aligners” are produced. Each “aligner” moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then is replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.
What are the primary benefits of Clear Correct?
- Clear Correct is clear. You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
- Clear Correct is removable. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
- Clear Correct is comfortable. There are no metal brackets or wires as with braces to cause mouth irritation, and no metal or wires means you spend less time in the doctor’s chair getting adjustments.
- Clear Correct allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
What are aligners made of?
Aligners are made of clear, strong medical grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn.
What do aligners look like?
Aligners are clear and look similar to tooth-whitening trays, but are custom-made for a better fit to move teeth. Some orthodontists and dentists have referred to them as “contact lenses for teeth.”
Is this a new way to straighten teeth?
For years, orthodontists and dentists have used removable appliances for limited treatment. Today, with the application of computer technology and custom manufacturing, Invisalign treats a broader range of cases with greater precision.
How does Clear Correct effectively move teeth?
Like brackets and arch wires are to braces, Clear Correct aligners move teeth through appropriate placement of controlled force on the teeth. The principal difference is that Invisalign not only controls forces, but also controls the timing of the force application. At each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, and these movements are determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system.

General dentistry is the branch of medicine involving the care and prevention of oral health conditions, diseases and disorders.
Currently, there are a number of options available for people who have lost their teeth. One of the most versatile is a set of removable dentures.
During the last 20 years, dental implants have become a desirable alternative to other methods of replacing missing teeth.
Although it sounds complicated, a tooth extraction is a routine procedure that according to The Mayo Clinic carries a very low risk of long-term complications.
Root canal treatment is the process of going inside the pulp space and removing the infected, dead tissue.
Dental Sealants are thin layers of resin that are placed on the pits, fissures, and grooves of molars to prevent decay on these surfaces.
Veneers & Laminates
This is one way to quickly get that beautiful smile. Veneers and Laminates are a thin shell of porcelain or resin that is bonded to the surface of the teeth.
Traditional porcelain veneers require the tooth to be “prepped” by shaving away a substantial amount of tooth enamel, and the process cannot be reversed.
Crowns & Bridges
A crown (cap) is a restoration that is placed on teeth that have lost a lot of their structure.
When considering tooth fillings, one of the options available are composite fillings which are made from durable plastics that are similar in color to natural teeth.
Clear Correct is the clear way to straighten teeth without braces. Clear Correct uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and Onlays are lab-made restorations that are placed on teeth when the cavity or lost tooth structure is too large to be restored by a simple filling.
