While braces have been used for decades as a more traditional means of realigning the smile and addressing misalignment of the teeth and dental arch, it is no longer the only way to do so! Many patients are apprehensive about undergoing treatment with traditional braces because of their appearance and the complications that can arise. Instead, Dr. Eric Wiitala of Scottsdale, AZ encourages patients to consider the advantages of undergoing ClearCorrect.
What is ClearCorrect?
ClearCorrect is an alternative treatment to conventional orthodontia. Instead of using metal wires and brackets to reposition the teeth, teeth are repositioned using clear plastic aligner trays fabricated to the patient’s current smile to create their dream smile! These aligner trays are removable and easy to care for, and most importantly, offer a discrete method of enhancing the smile.
What are the benefits of ClearCorrect?
There are a few common benefits to using ClearCorrect over traditional braces.
- Discrete – the primary reason why patients ask about ClearCorrect with Dr. Eric Wiitala is because it is a more discrete treatment. Patients can straighten their smile without the stigma of attached braces which can cover the teeth and be unsightly and difficult to keep clean.
- Removable – ClearCorrect aligner trays are removable by the patient, making it easier to keep the teeth clean. The aligner trays easily pop in and out from the dental arch when patients need to eat, drink, brush, or floss.
- Convenience – because ClearCorrect works as a series of aligners to reposition the teeth, patients will not need to schedule as many appointments as they do for an orthodontist. The aligner trays are changed out by the patient, and with proper compliance, no adjustments will be needed.
- A healthier smile – because ClearCorrect trays are removable, patients can easily brush and floss as they normally do, without having to worry about the surrounding brackets and wires.
