Clear Correct, Clear aligner treatment
Like Invisalign, Clear Correct also uses a series of smooth, comfortable aligner trays designer to gradually straighten teeth, and improve the look of your smile. You wear a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete. With simple cases Clear Correct may be a better option, and your orthodontist will be able to help you decide.
With Clear Correct treatment, there are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten, making it a modern and simple approach to straightening teeth.
Clear Correct uses custom-made aligners created for you and no one else. Your orthodontist designs your smile with Clear Correct, using a digital model of your teeth, then the aligners are made.
The aligner trays are made from virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. By wearing your aligners constantly, your teeth will gradually and gently move into their new straightened position.

Each case and treatment will vary depending on the patient, their unique concerns and the results they want to achieve. Treatment can be from 3-24 months, in the hands of an experienced orthodontist.
