Made in America, ClearCorrect is an exciting and discreet form of teeth straightening, comprised of transparent, comfortable, and easy to remove aligners. For patients, including business professionals, that want to showcase their smile with minimal impact to their lifestyle, ClearCorrect remains an obvious choice.
To better understand the process of ClearCorrect, a patient’s dentist or provider takes pictures, a series of x-rays or scans, and impressions of the patient’s teeth. The dentist then sends a “prescription” to ClearCorrect, along with information regarding the precise measurements and movements required to straighten the patient’s smile. A 3D model is created of the patient’s smile, and customized aligners are made according to the model. They are sent to the dentist, and the patient can begin wearing them. While dentists have a particular outcome in mind, in regards to the patient’s new smile, ClearCorrect allows for flexibility and changes to be made throughout treatment, if necessary. ClearCorrect accomplishes this by manufacturing the aligners in phases.
For the most part, individuals are expected to wear ClearCorrect aligners for 22 hours each day, and treatment ranges from a few months to a few years. As with other orthodontic methods, a retainer is worn following treatment to help prevent teeth from moving back into their previous position.
How Is ClearCorrect Different From Invisalign?
For patients considering a straighter smile with ClearCorrect, they often ask, “how is ClearCorrect different from Invisalign?” While both systems have a track record of success, and more similarities than not, there are a few key differences to note.
First of all, ClearCorrect, based in Texas, is generally more affordable. This is simply because the company is able to offer lower fees. With all related products made in the United States, ClearCorrect was established in 2006. On the other hand, Invisalign remains a global company, having made its debut in the 1990’s.
