Braces and clear aligners both work by gradually shifting your teeth into their proper positions. While there are a few extreme cases that warrant metal wires and brackets, clear aligners can correct almost all crooked teeth and misaligned bites.
Dr. Brian LaBombard at Airport Dental Care in Austin, Texas, trusts ClearCorrect® clear aligners to straighten our patients’ smiles. ClearCorrect harnesses the most advanced orthodontic technology to safely, precisely, and efficiently solve your alignment issues so you can feel confident about your smile.
Most of our patients ask for ClearCorrect aligners because they’re excited about avoiding the traditional metal braces, but this revolutionary system has much more to offer than invisibility. Here’re a few of the benefits you can expect.
ClearCorrect aligners are comfortable
FDA-approved ClearCorrect aligners are clear plastic trays that snap over your teeth similar to a mouthguard. We take a 3D image of your entire mouth to ensure we get a perfect customized fit. After a brief adjustment period, your aligners begin to feel like your natural teeth, and they don’t get in the way of talking normally.
Because ClearCorrect aligners are removable, you can pop them out anytime you need to, as long as you wear them at least 22 hours a day. You take them out to eat and brush your teeth, which means you don’t have to give up any of your favorite foods while your teeth are being straightened.
And with no wires and brackets to worry about, you’ll never have to deal with broken braces that poke your gums and tongue.
ClearCorrect aligners save time
Unlike traditional braces, which require you to visit your orthodontist for regular adjustments and tightening, you take charge. During your initial consultation and exam with Dr. LaBombard, he develops your entire treatment plan based on the end goal for your unique alignment needs.
Then he orders a full series of aligners that will gradually shift your bite over the treatment period. At prescribed intervals, you simply swap out the old tray for the new one.
Oral hygiene is easier with ClearCorrect
You know that oral hygiene is an extremely important part of your overall health care routine, and brushing and flossing teeth twice a day helps prevent cavities, gum disease, and a host of complications. But with braces, this routine becomes complicated, time-consuming, and sometimes painful.
ClearCorrect solves all those issues. Simply remove your trays to brush and floss — no need to thread the floss through brackets or spend extra time and effort carefully brushing in between wires.
ClearCorrect aligners work
In addition to the cosmetic value of a well-aligned smile, straight teeth are also easier to care for. From a medical standpoint, we love ClearCorrect because it gives our patients the best chance at fighting bacteria, plaque, decay, and gum disease. Put simply: crooked teeth are hard to clean.
ClearCorrect solves most of the common culprits that wreck you smile and hinder your hygiene, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Open bite
- Narrow arch
Although the aesthetic benefits of ClearCorrect are praiseworthy, Dr. LaBombard recommends them because they’re extremely effective aligners.
ClearCorrect boosts your confidence
When you don’t love your smile, you tend to keep your mouth closed, which triggers a slew of social and professional challenges. Committing to a teeth-straightening system is a great step in the right direction, but if you wear metal braces, it may be several months or a couple of years before you feel great about your smile.
ClearCorrect frees your mouth from metal hardware so you can smile with confidence even during your treatment.
And once your treatment is complete, your teeth will be one of your favorite features, and your confidence will skyrocket.
