If you need your teeth straightened, but traditional braces do not fit your lifestyle or your schedule, short-term orthodontics are a great alternative. At Panama City Smiles, we offer ClearCorrect aligners in Panama City, FL to straighten teeth without affecting your appearance or convenience during the process.
Who is a Good Candidate for ClearCorrect Aligners?
Currently, ClearCorrect is recommended only for teens and adults. ClearCorrect works best to correct these common orthodontic conditions:
- Crowded Teeth
- Spaces or Gaps Between Teeth
- Crooked or Turned Teeth
Dr. Anish Patel will evaluate your case and help you determine whether ClearCorrect is a good option for you. In some situations, traditional orthodontic braces are needed for the best results.
How Does ClearCorrect Work?
ClearCorrect invisible aligners use gentle pressure to gradually move your teeth into a better position. When you get a new aligner, it guides your teeth to fit the mold and shift into proper alignment. The change is very subtle from aligner to aligner, so there is little or no discomfort.
To begin your treatment, you will meet with Dr. Patel for an evaluation and exam. He will take some X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth and send them to an American lab to get your first set of invisible aligners made.
Your treatment consists of wearing your invisible aligners at least 22 hours a day, for 4-6 weeks. Then you will return to Panama City Smiles get your next aligner to wear. You will repeat this process until your desired results are achieved.
At Panama City Smiles we offer clear correct which is a newer technology which is invisible aligner trays that you wear all day long and those would help straighten your teeth. They are invisible to anyone else and you don’t have to have the metal and the wires and brackets and everything like the usual braces but you still get to achieve that straight smile just by wearing the aligners all day.
What are the Benefits of ClearCorrect?
- Invisible – show off your smile even during treatment!
- Comfortable – soft plastic aligners mold perfectly around your teeth – no wires or brackets.
- Removable – take your aligners out to eat, drink, and brush and floss.
How is ClearCorrect Better Than Other Aligner Therapies?
Unlike other aligner options, each ClearCorrect aligner is made as you progress through your treatment, allowing for adjustments along the way as we see how your teeth are responding. It is a uniquely custom approach to short-term orthodontic therapy.
How Long Does ClearCorrect Treatment Take?
Each patient is different, so treatment length depends on the degree of misalignment and how quickly your teeth are moved into correct position. Many people achieve their desired results within six months to one year.
What is the Cost of ClearCorrect Treatment?
The cost of ClearCorrect short-term orthodontics will depend on the length of treatment. The investment is somewhat comparable to traditional braces, but the benefits of shorter treatment time and a natural appearance are very valuable to most patients. We can discuss financing options for your new smile before your treatment begins.
