Getting a straighter smile shouldn’t mean enduring years of awkward metal braces — and thanks to ClearCorrect, it’s possible to undergo orthodontic treatment without your friends and colleagues even knowing!
At Dream-Dentistry & Sleep Care, we’re proud to offer ClearCorrect, an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to promote gentle movement of your teeth. Dr. Roeder believes in this product so much that he even uses it himself to get a straighter smile!
Read on to learn about five reasons why you’ll love ClearCorrect. Then, if you’re looking for alternatives to metal braces in Quakertown, PA, call us at (215) 804-4777 to schedule an appointment.
1. They’re Virtually Invisible.
This is probably the biggest reason patients are drawn to ClearCorrect. Everyone wants a straighter smile, but it’s such a hassle to endure years of wires and brackets. With the ClearCorrect system, your aligners will be virtually invisible and made to flawlessly fit your teeth.
There won’t be any metal to distract from your smile while it’s a work in progress.
2. They’re Completely Removable.
Though the aligners will fit snugly around your teeth, they’ll still be easy to remove. This means that if you have any special occasions, celebrations, or major milestones during the course of your treatment, you can simply take out your aligner so you won’t have to worry about it for a short period of time.
Just be sure to wear your aligner the recommended 22 hours a day the vast majority of the time so that your treatment stays on track!
3. Upkeep Is A Breeze.
Because there are no bands to change or wires to tighten, there’s aren’t as many routine visits to the dentist needed as there would be with traditional metal braces. Plus, you’ll love the ease of at-home care. With metal braces, flossing is a headache because you generally need special flossers that allow you to maneuver the brackets and wires. But because you simply remove your ClearCorrect aligner for routine brushing and flossing, there are no special upkeep measures required.
Plus, you won’t have to worry about dental staining that occurs around orthodontic brackets. In fact, when Dr. Roeder wears his ClearCorrect aligner, he will sometimes whiten his teeth simultaneously. Ask him about it! It’s a real time-saver.
4. No Dietary Restrictions.
If you looked into braces as an option or had them as a kid, you probably remember the long list of dietary restrictions that came with your orthodontic treatment. No popcorn, no caramels, no chewing gum. Even hard pizza crusts were problematic!
But with ClearCorrect, because you remove your aligner for meals and snacks anyway, you don’t have to adjust your diet to fit your orthodontic treatment. You can continue eating the foods you love.
5. See The Results Every Step Of The Way!
With traditional braces, it’s sometimes difficult to see the progress you’re making with all that metal hardware in the way. One of the things we love about ClearCorrect is that it’s easy to see all the incremental improvements that are happening to your smile, which encourages you to stick with your treatment to the end.
