There are many good reasons to straighten crooked teeth aside from aesthetics, and one is that straight teeth are easier to keep clean, which reduces your risk of decay and gum disease. With a straighter smile, you’ll also enjoy a fresh new sense of confidence because you know your smile looks its best.
If you’re an adult or teen, treatment with ClearCorrect invisible braces in Nolensville, KY is one of the fastest ways to straighten your smile in the shortest amount of time and with the least inconvenience.
A Straighter Smile in 3 Steps
With ClearCorrect, you can enjoy a straighter smile in three steps:
Step 1: Planning Your Treatment
The first step is to meet with your dentist who will discuss your concerns, answer your questions, and decide if treatment with clear aligners is right for you.
Next, x-rays and photos are taken and used with specialized software to map out your treatment in stages and determine how your teeth will move throughout treatment. These details are sent to an outside lab where your aligners are customized for you.
Step 2: Wearing Your Aligners
You will receive several sets of aligners, and you will wear each for about two weeks before switching to the next set in the series. During this time, you will visit your dentist periodically so they can check on your progress.
Since ClearCorrect aligners are removable, there are no food restrictions during treatment, and you can brush and floss as you usually do.
Your dentist will instruct you to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day, and doing so is the key to seeing the desired results in the shortest time possible. Average treatment time for adults is 12 to 15 months.
Step 3: Wearing Your Retainer
The aligner phase of treatment is finished when you have worn all your aligners. But you will need to wear a retainer to maintain the corrected position of your newly straightened teeth. Your dentist will let you know how often and for how long you should wear it.
