Straighter Teeth without Brackets and Wires!

Just a couple of decades ago, old-fashioned metal braces were the go-to treatment for crooked teeth. Nowadays, though, many more options are available. For example, several companies have rolled out clear aligner systems, which are both discreet and effective. Here at Michelsen Dental, we are proud to offer ClearCorrect clear aligners. If you are interested in achieving straighter teeth without brackets and wires, get in touch with our friendly team in Orange today.

How ClearCorrect Works

To get started with ClearCorrect, all you have to do is book a consultation with our team. Once we confirm that you are a good candidate for the treatment, we will scan your teeth and order your series of custom-made clear aligners. Once you start wearing your aligners, you should keep them in your mouth for 20 – 22 hours each day. As you gradually work your way through your entire series, your teeth will shift into their proper positions. You will visit us periodically throughout your treatment so we can monitor your progress, answer your questions, and provide necessary support.

Who ClearCorrect Can Help

ClearCorrect is an excellent option for addressing most cases of mild to moderate dental misalignment. During your consultation, we can confirm for sure whether or not this treatment is right for you. In the meantime, here is an overview of some of the issues that ClearCorrect is often used to fix:

Crowded Teeth

Crowded, overlapping teeth can trap food and bacteria between them, leading to an increased risk of decay and gum disease. Plus, they can interfere with speaking and biting. ClearCorrect is often able to shift the teeth so that each one has the space it needs to function optimally. In some cases, one or more extractions are necessary prior to orthodontic treatment so ClearCorrect can do its job.

Gaps Between Teeth

Gaps between the teeth might be caused by genetics, poor habits during childhood, or other factors. While a little extra space might seem cute and quirky, large gaps can actually expose your gums to harm. With the help of ClearCorrect, your teeth can move closer together so you can enjoy a healthier smile.

Bite Alignment

Overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite are all forms of malocclusions (bad bites). ClearCorrect, often with the help of special accessories, can usually address malocclusions so you can enjoy improved oral function and enhanced facial aesthetics.

The Benefits of ClearCorrect

Some of ClearCorrect’s most outstanding benefits include:

  • The aligners are almost unnoticeable when they are placed on the teeth.
  • Because the aligners are removable, you can eat all your favorite foods and enjoy easy oral hygiene.
  • There are no metal parts to irritate the soft tissues in your mouth.
  • ClearCorrect is designed for efficient, precise tooth movements.
  • Some patients can complete their treatment in 12 months or less.

How Much Does ClearCorrect Cost?

The cost of ClearCorrect varies from case to case. We can share some specific numbers when you visit us for your consultation. Often, patients must pay a few thousand dollars or more. With the help of insurance, financing, and/or our in-house dental membership plan, most patients find that it is not too difficult to afford their desired treatment. Remember, ClearCorrect is an investment in your smile that can provide a lifetime of benefits!
