Invisalign and ClearCorrect are both orthodontic treatment options that feature completely clear, totally comfortable acrylic aligners. Each aligner is custom-made to shift teeth closer and closer to their final, ideal placement. Wear an aligner for two weeks, then throw it away and move to the next set in your series.
One of the major drawbacks to orthodontics is that they require constant wear. The brackets are actually cemented to teeth, and wires exert force 24/7 to pull teeth into alignment. With Invisalign or ClearCorrect, no features are affixed to teeth. The aligners are completely free moving, so you can take them in and out at your own discretion. To remain in compliance with your treatment plan, you’ll need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day. You can remove them to eat a meal, attend a special event, and clean your teeth.
We understand that first impressions are important, for teenagers as well as adults. Braces and Invisalign have become common interests for people who haven't received the proper orthodontic care earlier in life. However, Invisalign offers many distinct advantages over traditional braces, which appeal as beneficial to many patients. Invisalign is a clear option for straighter teeth that won't hinder your appearance or limit your diet.
