Why ClearCorrect May Be Better than Braces

The beauty of ClearCorrect clear aligners is that they make a more cosmetically appealing solution for patients who want to straighten crooked teeth but worry about the appearance of metal braces. However, their discreet appearance is only one of many benefits that come with choosing clear aligners to straighten crooked teeth. For patients throughout Astoria, NY, ClearCorrect can help prevent the many complications that can arise from leaving tooth misalignment untreated, and the benefits they provide encourage more patients to undergo orthodontic treatment.

The aligners are unnoticeable

ClearCorrect aligners are designed to accomplish the same goals as traditional braces. However, instead of using metal brackets and wires, ClearCorrect utilizes a series of aligners made from clear, virtually invisible acrylic. This means your orthodontic treatment will remain virtually invisible, which eliminates the concern that many patients have about their braces affecting their smiles’ appearance.

They make cleaning your teeth easier

Besides appearance, another concern patients often have about braces is how they’ll affect their daily hygiene routines. Traditional brackets are semi-permanently bonded to your teeth and connected by an arch wire. Together, they create a series of obstructions that require additional care and hygiene tools (such as interdental cleaners) to properly clean your teeth. By contrast, ClearCorrect aligners can be removed so that you can more easily brush and floss your teeth every day.

They can fix a variety of orthodontic issues

ClearCorrect aligners are highly beneficial over traditional orthodontics, but only because they’re effective at correcting a variety of tooth alignment issues. To determine if the aligners can address your overbite, underbite, crossbite, or other orthodontic concern, your dentist will perform a comprehensive examination to diagnose the specific nature and severity of your malocclusion.
