Three Things You Need to Know about Invisalign & ClearCorrect

 

1. Treatment is invisible

 

So, you want to straighten your teeth, but you don’t want to look like a preteen. No problem. That’s where Invisalign and ClearCorrect can help. Instead of using metal brackets or wires to straighten teeth, these orthodontics options use clear aligners. The aligners look like a mouthpiece or whitening tray and are custom to your smile.

 

Unlike metal braces, the clear aligners won’t stick out like a sore thumb. In fact, it’s highly likely that no one will even notice the aligners on your teeth.

 

2.  Treatment is shorter

 

Typical treatment time for traditional braces is about two to three years. That’s a long time to spend in braces, especially if you’re an adult or working professional. You probably don’t want to wear any orthodontic treatment for two or three years, even if it’s invisible like Invisalign or ClearCorrect. The good news is that these orthodontic treatments, Invisalign and ClearCorrect, only take between 12 and 18 months on average, and some people finish their treatment earlier.

 

No only that, but whenever you come to LakeCrest Dental, we can give you the exact treatment time on your first visit. We’ll plan everything out during that consultation.

 

3. Treatment requires no fixed appliances

 

One of the biggest complaints with braces is that the brackets are fixed to your teeth. Fixed appliances are probably the best way to ensure the treatment stays on its timeline, which is great for children and treatment compliance. But adults can be trusted to guide their own treatment.  

 

One problem with fixed appliances, however, is that they make it difficult to eat certain foods. Anyone who has had braces knows about the food limitations that come with the treatment. When you have Invisalign or ClearCorrect, you can easily remove the appliances for easy cleaning and eating. Just be sure to wear the aligners for at least 20 hours a day to achieve optimal results and stay on your treatment timeline.
