ClearCorrect Q & A
What is ClearCorrect?
ClearCorrect is an innovative orthodontic treatment system that straightens your teeth without bulky metal brackets glued onto your teeth. This system uses clear, removable aligners that gradually shift your teeth into alignment over time.
Made from a special type of plastic, the ClearCorrect custom-made aligners are comfortable and people can barely even notice you’re wearing them.
How does ClearCorrect work?
The first step in enhancing your smile with ClearCorrect is coming into Dr. Darj Dental for a consultation. Dr. Darj and her team take photos and X-rays, uses a scanner or impressions to capture the shape of your teeth, and submits your prescription to ClearCorrect.
Once your aligners arrive, you wear them at home. Every few weeks you receive new sets of aligners with minor adjustments that continue the ongoing movement of your teeth, according to the personalized treatment plan Dr. Darj develops. The aligners apply controlled amounts of pressure that shift your teeth subtly over time.
Periodically, you come in for checkups at the office to monitor your progress and comfort with ClearCorrect.
How often should I wear my aligners?
To achieve optimal results in a timely fashion, you need to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day. Simply put, the more you wear your aligners, the more they’re working to straighten your teeth.
However, one thing that’s so great about ClearCorrect is that you can remove your aligners when you eat and brush your teeth. You don’t have to worry about constantly having food stuck in them, which you’ll be extremely thankful for throughout treatment.
How long does treatment with ClearCorrect take?
The length of time it takes to perfect your smile with ClearCorrect varies widely depending on the state of your teeth at the beginning of treatment. It can take anywhere from a few months to a few years, but generally, it takes about one year on average.
As your treatment progresses, the Dr. Darj Dental team can update you with estimates on how long your treatment should last.
