Dr. Courter and our team understand that while many people wish they had straighter teeth, they also do not want to use traditional braces. Old-fashioned orthodontics are quite good at correcting a broad range of dental alignment problems, but they are quite obvious to onlookers. They also impose dietary restrictions and can be rather uncomfortable. Therefore, many patients prefer a subtler, more modern treatment. That is why we offer ClearCorrect. This convenient, discreet clear aligner system may be the ideal way to straighten your teeth without subjecting you to a mouth full of metal. Would you like to learn more about the many benefits of ClearCorrect? Keep reading below.
Benefits of ClearCorrect – Midland, TX
The Convenient Way to Straighten Teeth
The metal brackets and wires of traditional braces are often seen as a sign of adolescence. As a professional adult, that is the last thing you want! Fortunately, ClearCorrect aligners are very subtle. Unless someone is already aware that you are undergoing treatment, they are unlikely to notice that you are even wearing the aligners. Plus, you can remove your aligners for special occasions, like that photoshoot with your family or that important presentation at work.
ClearCorrect uses transparent plastic aligners that are customized to fit your unique mouth. Their personalization, combined with the smooth nature of the material that composes them, make them very comfortable. They are unlikely to irritate the soft tissues in your mouth.
No Food Restrictions
Traditional metal braces require you to avoid certain foods. For other foods, you have to take precautions while eating so you do not damage your brackets and wires. With ClearCorrect, you do not have to worry about such things. You simply remove ClearCorrect before meals, eat whatever you want, and give your teeth and your aligners a quick cleaning before you put your clear braces back in your mouth.
Easy Oral Hygiene
Traditional braces can pose challenges to oral hygiene. For example, flossing around the brackets and wires can be time-consuming and tedious. With ClearCorrect, maintaining a clean smile is easy. Simply remove your aligners and brush and floss as normal before putting ClearCorrect back in your mouth.
Ability to Play Sports and Musical Instruments
Traditional braces can interfere with your ability to play musical instruments, and they can pose a threat to the soft tissues in your mouth while you are playing sports. With ClearCorrect, you can remove your orthodontic treatment while you are making music or tearing up the court or field.
