For many teens and adults, the social cost of straightening their teeth is too high. Traditional metal braces are often embarrassing and uncomfortable to wear. They certainly detract from a person’s appearance. But beyond the embarrassment of having a mouthful of metal, metal braces have been shown to potentially impact the career advancement of working adults. Whether you’re a socially active teen or a career-minded adult, there is a way to straighten your teeth without embarrassment, and it’s available at Panama City Smiles in Panama City, FL.
ClearCorrect Short-Term Orthodontics
ClearCorrect clear aligners are transparent – so much so, that they’re invisible except to people who know what to look for. There are no wires or brackets to irritate your lips, gums, or the insides of your cheeks, as is the case with traditional braces. Your comfortable, custom-made clear aligners fit snugly over your teeth. You take them out to drink, eat, and care for your teeth.
ClearCorrect aligners are ideal for short-term orthodontic treatment. In many cases, treatment is complete within six months or so. However, ClearCorrect is not the right solution for everyone. The only way to know whether ClearCorrect will meet your needs is to schedule a consultation with Panama City Smiles. Call our office at at 850-588-0185. You can also use our online form to arrange your consultation or to ask questions of our staff.
How ClearCorrect Works
Unlike other clear aligners, ClearCorrect aligners are custom-made for you as your treatment progresses. The advantage is that Dr. Patel – who has completed three years of training specifically in orthodontics – can make adjustments as your teeth move into the desired positions.
If you and Dr. Patel decide that ClearCorrect is right for you, your journey to straight teeth begins with a series of X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth. Those will allow a lab to make your first set of invisible aligners.
Once you receive your first set of ClearCorrect aligners, you’ll need to wear them 22 hours a day for best results. The aligners fit so snugly that you needn’t worry about them coming loose while you sleep. After your new aligners have gradually and gently moved your teeth for 4-6 weeks, you’ll visit with Dr. Patel again to receive your next set of aligners.
The length of ClearCorrect short-term orthodontic treatment varies from person to person, but Dr. Patel will likely be able to give you a close estimate of how long it will take to move your teeth into position.
ClearCorrect Is The Choice For Teens And Working Adults
You can straighten your teeth invisibly, comfortably, and quickly with ClearCorrect. The cost is comparable to traditional metal braces, but you avoid the social embarrassment and the impact on relationships and careers.
