Do you wish your teeth were straighter? Are you self-conscious about your smile? You no longer have to choose between metal braces and a crooked smile. With ClearCorrect, you can get the perfect smile you’ve always wanted — without the downsides of braces.
Dr. Mehrnoosh Darj and her dedicated team at Dr. Darj Dental know that straight teeth are more than just a cosmetic concern. Teeth that aren’t crowded are easier to brush and floss, which means it’s easier to keep your mouth as healthy as possible.
Have you been dreaming about straighter teeth? In this blog, we explain the benefits of ClearCorrect removable aligners and how they can be part of your ultimate smile makeover.
It might seem too good to be true, but the idea of straightening teeth without metal braces isn’t new. The first idea of using a plastic tray to align teeth was credited to Dr. Harold Kesling in 1945, but they’ve come a long way since then!
Clear aligners gradually shift your teeth into the desired position by applying targeted pressure to specific areas on your teeth. ClearCorrect can address many orthodontic problems, including:

Using ClearCorrect to straighten your teeth offers many advantages over traditional metal braces.
Nothing sticks out quite like shiny metal in your mouth, and ClearCorrect aims to provide the orthodontic treatment you need — discreetly. The plastic trays are clear, which means most people probably won’t even notice that you're wearing them.
Wires and brackets are the most well-known type of orthodontic treatments, and they’re also known for their discomfort. The sharp metal edges can rub on the insides of your lips and cheeks, causing pain, sores, or blisters. ClearCorrect trays are smooth and fit right over your teeth. This means that your treatment is much more comfortable.
ClearCorrect trays are removable. Although you should wear your trays for at least 22 hours per day, you can remove them to brush your teeth and to drink and eat. Unlike with metal braces, you don’t have to give up favorite foods like popcorn. Not only does the removable tray free you from dietary restrictions, but it also means that it’s much easier to floss your teeth.
According to the ClearCorrect product literature, this teeth straightening system is compatible with remote monitoring technology. This technology helps us determine if you’re ready to progress to your next set of aligners. Many people switch trays every two weeks, but ClearCorrect monitoring allows us to adjust your treatment plan as necessary.
When you come to Dr. Darj Dental, you’re not just getting clear aligners. Because we offer comprehensive dental care, we make it our mission to make sure your smile is both beautiful and healthy.
