To correct malocclusion, a growing numbers of patients and dentists prefer clear aligners rather conventional wires and brackets, due to advantages such as:
Advantages of clear aligners, compare to wire & brackets
Clear Correct can straighten patient’s teeth without the wires and brackets of traditional braces.
The aligners consist of a sequence of clear, removable trays that fit over the teeth to straighten them. Each tray must be worn by the patient for a specified amount of time,
usually around 22 hours a day for two weeks, before the patient can progress to the next tray. In most situations, the aligners can straighten teeth in anywhere from six to 18 months.
Clear Correct is suitable for patients with mild or moderate crowding, or minor spacing issues. They may not be appropriate for patients with severe crowding or spacing. While the aligners can correct a mild malocclusion, patients with severe underbites, overbites, or crossbites may require more advanced orthodontic treatment.
Unlike traditional braces, the trays can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Because the trays are clear, patients can undergo this type of orthodontic treatment without the usual discomfort associated with regular braces.
Although treatment prices for aligners are normally set individually, they can be more expensive than braces. If a patient fails to wear the trays properly or loses them, additional costs may be incurred if new trays or impressions of a patient’s teeth are needed.
Clear Correct is a great option many of our patients. The best way to learn if it is a good fit for you is through a one- on -one consultation with Dr. Ryo.
