ClearCorrect utilizes clear plastic aligner trays that are worn over the teeth. They apply a gradual, gentle pressure to the teeth to shift them into a straighter position over time. There are three options of ClearCorrect aligners you can choose from: Unlimited, Limited 12, and Limited 6. Unlimited gives you as many aligners as you need to complete your treatment. Limited 12 gives you twelve aligners, while Limited 6 allots you six clear aligners in Saginaw.
No matter how many aligners you receive, you still have to wear them for at least 20-22 hours a day in order for them to work effectively. You’ll pretty much only remove them when eating or drinking, or while brushing and flossing. Keep in mind that in order to keep your aligners clean and clear, you should brush and floss after every meal or snack and before you reinsert the aligners.
Dr. Renkuntla can use ClearCorrect to treat a variety of orthodontic issues, like:
If your teeth are too close together, it can be hard to clean them. This leaves you more at risk for problems like tooth decay and gum disease. ClearCorrect can more evenly space out your teeth.
Besides being considered unattractive, having gaps in between your teeth can be detrimental to your oral health. Bits of food can get stuck in the spaces and attract bacteria, putting you more at risk for infections. ClearCorrect can shift your teeth into a more correctly spaced position.
Problems with an overbite, underbite, or crossbite can increase your chances of developing TMJ disorder and bruxism, a condition where you clench and grind your teeth. All of these bite issues can be fixed with ClearCorrect.
Modern dentistry has come a long way in designing technology to straighten smiles. ClearCorrect in particular has many benefits over traditional braces, such as:
No two mouths are the same, and because of that, it’s difficult to come up with an estimate for ClearCorrect treatment without first examining your mouth. The cost of your ClearCorrect aligners will depend on several factors, such as the severity of your misalignment, your age, and the amount of time you’ll dedicate to wearing your aligners. The only way to figure out exactly how much your treatment will cost is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Renkuntla, your trusted dentist in Saginaw. Only then can we determine a treatment plan for you.
