ClearCorrect Straightens Teeth Without the Metal

At RidgeGate Dental, we see patients come in with crooked, misaligned smiles who want an alternative solution to traditional metal braces. Instead of turning them away, we gladly present a clear alternative – ClearCorrect. As a non-metal orthodontic solution, patients can feel less nervous and more eager to pursue this type of treatment because of the clear aligners that are used to straighten teeth. As invisible trays that fit snugly on teeth, they are a more acceptable option for individuals who want to avoid the spotlight of orthodontic treatment. Schedule your consultation with a member of our team by calling our office today.

How ClearCorrect Works

ClearCorrect requires that you receive customized aligners that are made from impressions taken of your teeth. Dr. Ahern or Dr. Arnold will go over the details of treatment during your fitting, but you can expect to wear your trays 20-22 hours a day. The flexibility in being able to remove aligners while eating and drinking makes wearing them for the remainder of the day essential.

You can clean your teeth more thoroughly because you will remove your trays beforehand, but you can easily keep your aligners free of bacteria by cleaning them throughout the day. Also, you’ll be required to swap out your current set for the next one in the series until you are finished with all of them. How many you will need is largely up to your dentist and will be determined during the consultation phase.

The Benefits of ClearCorrect Clear Aligners

Apart from being more convenient than traditional metal braces, Clear Correct also:

  • Uses gentle pressure to shift teeth into alignment, as opposed to the forced wire tightening that is required with metal braces.
  • Minimizes irritation because there are no protruding brackets or wires rubbing against soft oral tissues.
  • Creates a virtually invisible appearance, making it nearly impossible for others to see your braces.
  • Reduces the amount of time spent wearing braces, with many individuals completing treatment in six months (this is not always the case).

Is ClearCorrect the Same as Invisalign?

Although both are clear aligner systems, they have differences that you should be aware of before deciding how best to move forward with orthodontic treatment, such as:

  • The cost is generally lower with ClearCorrect, but this is primarily determined by the severity of tooth misalignment, the location of the dental practice, and other similar factors.
  • ClearCorrect’s aligners are thinner than Invisalign's, making them less noticeable.
  • ClearCorrect’s aligners are cut straight across, allowing for quicker tooth movement because of how they can use your gums to create more force.
