Have you always wanted a straight smile, but the thought of wires and brackets has caused you to put it on hold? Now, you can get the results you want using a nearly invisible solution. Your cosmetic dentist in Soldotna, Dr. Craig O’Donoghue offers ClearCorrect. The clear plastic aligners move your teeth into their ideal positions. This gives you a discreet and sophisticated treatment to feel confident while on your journey to a straight smile.
Traditional braces are effective for correcting even the most complex bite and alignment issues. Your teeth are pulled into position by attaching brackets and wires to them. Although it is effective, it may not always be the right solution for adults who want to maintain a professional image during their treatment.
As an alternative, many adults are turning to ClearCorrect. Custom-made clear aligners gradually move your teeth into position. You will enjoy a virtually invisible option that resolves many of the disadvantages of metal braces.
3D scans of your mouth are used to create a series of aligners. Each one moves your teeth until they are aligned. You must commit to wearing them for at least 22 hours per day, only taking them out when eating or drinking and caring for your teeth. You wear each aligner for about 1 week before switching to the next.
During your treatment, you require periodic check-ins to allow Dr. O’Donoghue to monitor the movement of your teeth. On average, it takes about 12 months to complete your treatment. Afterward, you will need a retainer to prevent your teeth from moving back into their previous positions.
Since the aligners are clear and removable, you will enjoy several benefits that are not possible with traditional braces.
