Orthodontic Treatment With Clear Correct Aligners

03f5aa71c66bd2cb5265f68c6177c940

Orthodontics in Colorado Springs is a branch of dentistry that treats misaligned teeth, also known as malocclusions. Orthodontics in Colorado Springs can be necessary for your oral health. Straight teeth are easier to clean; when teeth are crowded or crooked, it can be difficult to reach all surfaces of the teeth and brush away plaque buildup that leads to dental problems. If your bite is misaligned, it can make chewing difficult and cause jaw pain. Teeth that are too far apart can also cause speech impediments.

What Are The Options In Orthodontics in Colorado Springs?

Metal braces are the traditional solution to misaligned teeth that have been around for decades. However, these metal brackets can be uncomfortable, difficult to keep clean, and unsightly. Luckily, modern orthodontics in Colorado Springs offers a number of effective alternatives. These include clear aligners like Clear Correct.  

However, orthodontics in Colorado Springs is not right for everyone. It’s important to find a doctor who is experienced with both treatment options and can walk you through the differences. That way, you can figure out which option will be best for your smile’s needs.

Braces and Clear Correct aligners are both used to straighten teeth, correct spacing issues, and improve alignment. However, they work in very different ways. Braces are cemented to your teeth and work by applying constant pressure over a series of months to the teeth and gradually moving them into place. Aligners are removable and are worn over the teeth throughout the day to shift the teeth gradually into place. 

Braces are typically used to correct more serious issues with tooth alignment or bite problems, while aligners are used as a cosmetic solution to minor orthodontic issues. 

Clear Correct Clear Aligners

Clear Correct Aligners are a series of custom-made, removable clear appliances, called aligners, that are used to straighten teeth gradually. The  aligners are made of smooth, transparent, BPA-free plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. They are clear and custom-made to fit you, so no one will even know you’re wearing them! Unlike traditional braces that use wires and brackets to reposition teeth, these aligner trays are changed out every few weeks as your teeth begin to move. Treatment typically lasts from six months up to two years, depending on the severity of your case. However, the more consistently you wear your aligners, the shorter your treatment will be. While they’re removable for eating and oral hygiene purposes, they should be worn for at least twenty-two hours a day to achieve the best results. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks at a time and then replaced by the next set in the series. This continues until you have achieved your perfect smile!

Clear Correct is a great option for young patients who need to correct gapped, crooked, or crowded teeth but aren’t ready for metal braces yet. Many adults are turning to this option as well instead of choosing metal braces that may be uncomfortable to wear or embarrassing to show when they speak or smile. If you’ve been thinking about getting a straighter smile, talk to your dentist about which option is best for you. They can work with you to create an individualized treatment plan that gets you a gorgeous new smile in no time flat!
