Metal braces have been around for decades and remain one of the most effective orthodontic options available; they can be used to correct a wide variety of complex issues, including crooked or overcrowded teeth, spacing, overbite, and underbite. Modern braces are much smaller and less noticeable than they used to be. While braces are normally worn by children (since it’s easier to make adjustments while the mouth is still developing), plenty of adults can benefit from them as well.
For older patients who don’t want to wear braces to work or give up their favorite foods during orthodontic treatment, ClearCorrect can be a convenient alternative to traditional braces. A series of clear aligners will slowly push your teeth into alignment over time; many mild to moderate orthodontic issues can be corrected in about 6 to 18 months this way. Not only are the aligners more discreet than braces, but they’re also removable. That means you can eat anything you want without restriction, and you’ll be able to brush and floss normally afterwards.
