Convenient, Nearly Invisible Orthodontics
Traditional braces can address many dental issues, including overbite, misaligned teeth, and gaps between your teeth. Unfortunately, if you're like most patients, you probably won't enjoy having visible treatment that requires careful maintenance. At Casler Dental Group, we are pleased to offer you more discreet and easy-care clear orthodontics.
What Is ClearCorrect?
This treatment choice is a system for gradually straightening misaligned teeth. Your aligner system consists of a series of trays that gently move your teeth into their best position over time. It offers you an attractive alternative to braces because the trays are nearly invisible.
What Are Some Benefits of These Clear Orthodontics?
In addition to helping you maintain your appearance, you can remove these clear aligners. Once your aligners are removed, you can:
- Easily brush and floss your teeth
- Eat what you want to eat
These discreet appliances also require fewer visits to our office. Traditional braces need to be tightened and have wires that needed replacing during appointments at our dental office. Your ClearCorrect aligners only need to be replaced as your teeth become progressively straighter.
How Are ClearCorrect Aligners Created?
At your dental appointment, we will carefully examine your teeth to determine your best treatment option. If you would benefit from clear aligners, we will capture images of your teeth by scanning them or making molds of them. Then, Dr. Casler will prescribe the best method for straightening your teeth. At the lab, technicians create your aligners according to Dr. Casler's prescription.
What Will Your Everyday Life Look Like in Your Clear Orthodontics?
Your everyday life won't change much. The most significant change will be that you'll need to wear your aligners every day. Since you'll need to wear them for at least 22 hours per day, you'll wear your aligners while you sleep. The only time you should remove your aligners is to eat or to care for them.
How Do You Care for ClearCorrect?
Clear aligner care is quick and straightforward. Brush your aligners with toothpaste and cold water. Be sure to use cold water because excessive heat may alter your aligner's shape. When you're not wearing your aligner, put them back in their protective case.
At Casler Dental Group, we want to help you experience all the benefits of properly aligned teeth. If you'd like to know more about ClearCorrect or would like an orthodontics assessment, please reach out to us at our Broken Arrow office today.
