There is a common belief that individuals with flawless smiles either naturally have it or paid a fortune for it. Nevertheless, disregarding the cost, in the past, many people refrained from seeking orthodontic treatment for their crooked teeth due to their aversion to traditional metal braces. Years later, many remember their experiences with metal braces or knew someone who had them. While these devices eventually created great-looking smiles, they were very uncomfortable, unattractive, and an all-around hassle to maintain and clean.
Thankfully, with advances in dental technology, many patients now enjoy more discrete orthodontic devices for straightening teeth, known as clear aligners. These exciting, perfect smile creators have revolutionized dentistry, and you can also enjoy their benefits.
At Flower Mound Dental: Dr. William E. Wyatt, Jr., Dr. Will Wyatt is a talented and experienced dental professional who can help you perfect your smile and correct conditions such as open bite using ClearCorrect Braces.
ClearCorrect is one of many clear aligner choices on the market today designed to correct misalignment issues that could once only be solved using traditional metal braces. These aligners are created from a clear, bio-compatible plastic that is customized to fit perfectly with your teeth.
After Dr. Wyatt takes a digital image of your smile, a set of aligners is created that will gradually guide your teeth to form your new smile. The process works just like traditional braces, using gradual pressure to shift your teeth into the desired alignment.
However, unlike traditional braces, ClearCorrect does not use wires or visible metal brackets to realign your teeth. Instead, each clear aligner uses gentle pressure to guide your teeth. After about two weeks, you change to the next set of aligners and continue until you’re done.
Aside from being completely transparent, the other benefits of using ClearCorrect braces include being able to take them out at any time. This makes enjoying a meal and performing daily dental hygiene, such as brushing and flossing, much easier.
You don’t have to use special solutions or troublesome techniques to clean them either. It’s important to only use cold and not warm or hot water, as the heat can cause the aligners to warp and not fit your teeth properly.
Plus, Dr. Wyatt can even give you a sneak preview of what your smile will look like before you begin treatment! Those who use clear aligners like ClearCorrect are more likely to comply with their treatment plan since they don’t have to worry about hassles such as visiting the dentist for each adjustment and cleaning. Wearing ClearCorrect aligners for the necessary amount of hours daily and changing aligners on time is a lot easier for patients to stick with.
