Many adults want to straighten their teeth but aren’t too excited about the idea of a mouth full of ugly and uncomfortable metal. Fortunately, that is no longer a requirement.
Advances in orthodontics brought us Invisalign invisible braces which can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. Introduced in the 1990s, Invisalign used a sophisticated computer program to manufacture a series of clear aligners to move the teeth. More recently, Clear Correct has used a similar technology.
Benefits of Straightening Your Teeth with Invisible Braces
- Even at a conversational distance, no one will know you’re wearing them. This allows you to straighten your teeth privately.
- You can eat what you want without worry. With traditional braces, most foods will get stuck in the metal and some may even break off brackets. Clear Correct is removable so you can eat anything you want.
- Because they’re removable, oral hygiene is much simpler. You simply take out the aligners then brush and floss as you normally would. Just don’t forget to put them back in when you’re done.
Why Clear Correct instead of Invisalign?
While Invisalign was the first company to do this, Dr. Kaur actually prefers using Clear Correct. It works much like Invisalign but has a few advantages.
First, it’s more affordable. This allows more patients to straighten their teeth without the burden of extra cost.
Second, it gives the dentist a little more flexibility and control in the course of treatment. It’s the dentist who’s working with your bite and knows how treatment is progressing. Clear Correct allows Dr. Kaur to change any prescribed treatment to fit what your bite needs. Invisalign is a little more rigid.
Finally, Clear Correct has study clubs. This is an invaluable resource and a benefit to both Dr. Kaur and her patients.
