ClearCorrect is the completely discreet way to get the straighter, easier-to-clean, aesthetically-pleasing teeth you’ve always wanted. Unlike metal braces or a traditional retainer, it’s clear, blending into your teeth. Unless you tell people, most won’t notice you wear it. Let’s find out if you’re a good candidate and what to expect during your treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for ClearCorrect
The best candidate for ClearCorrect has:
- Minor misalignments
- Minor crowding
- Minor relapses after previous braces (e.g., you didn’t wear your retainer per doctor’s orders)
- Need for single-arch alignment, which means that only the top or bottom teeth need treatment
Some candidates are less ideal but can still benefit for ClearCorrect as long as they realize that the process may take longer. These include:
- Moderate misalignments
- Moderate crowding
- Minor or moderate overbite or underbite
Bruxism (teeth grinding) and sleep apnea that requires a nighttime device called a CPAP may reduce your chances of being a good candidate because they can make it harder to wear the ClearCorrect properly.
What Can I Expect with ClearCorrect Treatment
Once you’ve been fitted for a ClearCorrect aligner, you’ll wear it at least 22 hours a day, taking it out only when you eat or need to wear a mouth guard, such as may be the case if you play a contact sport.
During check-ups, your doctor assesses your progress. When you’re ready, you’ll graduate to the next level of aligner. Each level normally lasts 2-3 weeks and gets you closer to that perfect smile you’ve always wanted. Your treatment may take only a few months of a few years depending on the complexity of movement needed in your mouth.
