If you are an adult dental patient who needs orthodontic therapy with braces, you may want to consider clear braces from Dental Care Oak Lawn. We offer Clear Correct clear braces at our Oak Lawn dental practice and can develop a treatment plan to meet your orthodontic needs. You don’t have to suffer the high visibility and discomfort of metal braces to get straighter teeth. Clear aligner therapy offers a modern alternative to old-fashioned orthodontic treatment for adult patients.
Is Clear Correct Similar to Invisalign®?
Clear Correct and Invisalign® are both brand names of treatment systems that involve the use of thermoplastic aligners. Many patients may have heard of Invisalign® and believe that it’s the only way to straighten their teeth with clear plastic trays. The clear braces offered by our Oak Lawn dentist work in exactly the same way as the Invisalign® brand so you can work on your smile without the discomfort of metal brackets and wires.In the same way as Invisalign® is created, Clear Correct aligners are designed using a computer to specifically fit the unique shape of your mouth. Sophisticated 3D printers are utilized to produce the aligners, ensuring a perfect fit.
All orthodontic treatment involves exerting pressure on the teeth to reposition them. Both Invisalign ® and Clear Correct do this through the use of aligners instead of brackets and wires. As your teeth begin to shift into ideal position, Dr. Tower will provide you with your next set of aligners that will continue to work for your ideal smile. Your treatment will continue until your teeth are properly aligned.
Are Clear Braces Better Than Traditional Braces?
Every patient has their own unique needs when it comes to orthodontic treatment, but the clear, plastic aligner treatment from our Oak Lawn dentists does offer some advantages over traditional metal braces, including:
- You can take your aligners out when you eat, brush and floss, allowing you to continue to enjoy your favorite foods and maintain your oral hygiene; you won’t have to worry about damaging or cleaning around brackets with orthodontic therapy with clear aligners.
• No Metal - Metal braces can detract from your appearance and the brackets and wires can irritate the soft tissues in your mouth. Clear braces are made from smooth, discreet plastic so they’re comfortable and nearly invisible.
• Precise Fit - Because the aligners are produced using a state-of-the-art computer system and 3D printer, they will fit precisely, allowing for more effective treatment; however, it’s important to note that you must wear the aligners as directed to get results.
Just as the names Invisalign® and Clear Correct suggest, your clear aligners are virtually invisible when in place. The aligners typically do not affect speech, so it is unlikely that anyone will know you are wearing them.
