ClearCorrect Short-Term OrthodonticsDoctor Anish Patel on ClearCorrect at Panama City Smiles Read Transcript
Clear Correct is a clear tray system, so it's basically invisible to anyone that's looking at your smile. You wear a very clear tray for anywhere from six months to two years and we move your teeth that way. It's very nice for people that are conscious about wearing brackets or things like that, or people who have had braces before and they don't want to go into braces again, so Clear Correct is a good option for them because they still get to move their teeth but they don't have to worry about the brackets and the wires and all that kind of stuff that they went through the first time. The majority of our Clear Correct cases are relapse cases, but we do use it for new cases as well, for aligning teeth that people just, for some reason, whether it's a cosmetic issue or whether a comfort issue, they can't wear the brackets. We use Clear Correct for those cases.

Dr. Patel has completed three years of advanced training just in orthodontics, so you can rest assured your smile will be treated to high-quality care.
What Are The Advantages Of ClearCorrect?
Dr. Patel has chosen ClearCorrect for his patients because it is a uniquely custom approach to short-term orthodontic therapy. Unlike other aligner options, your ClearCorrect aligners are custom-made as you progress through your treatment, allowing for adjustments along the way as we see how your teeth are responding. They are also:
- 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 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, Dr. Patel will take some X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab to get your first set of invisible aligners made.
You will need to wear your aligners at least 22 hours a day, for 4-6 weeks. Then you will return to Panama City Smiles to get your next aligner set to wear.
Treatment length depends on the degree of misalignment, but many of our patients achieve their desired results within six months.
Currently, we recommend ClearCorrect only for teens and adults. In some situations, we will use traditional orthodontic braces to achieve the best results.
