One of the best options in braces today is ClearCorrect aligners, which has become the choice of a growing number of younger and as well as older patients seeking an improved smile. A qualified dental office may provide ClearCorrect in place of traditional metal braces for patients who want a less conspicuous and more comfortable orthodontic treatment option.
Dr. Rob Strain is a leading cosmetic dentist providing ClearCorrect aligners to suitable candidates. ClearCorrect is a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that are designed to move the teeth into a naturally aesthetic position. Dr. Strain provides ClearCorrect braces to patients in Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs, Palm Desert, and surrounding locations.
Conditions Treated with ClearCorrect
ClearCorrect is a proven and effective orthodontic and aesthetic dentistry solution to improve the appearance of:
- Overbites and underbites
- Crooked or turned teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
If there is a specific situation where the dental misalignment or a complex bite problem may not be treated best with clear aligners, the cosmetic dentist may recommend traditional metal braces in such cases. But in most situations, a patient will achieve superior results and greater comfort with clear and removable ClearCorrect aligners. The aligners are custom-fitted to eliminate the problem of irritation and involve almost no adjustment issues.
The total treatment time with ClearCorrect aligners may be around one to two years, depending on the patient’s condition and how diligently the patient cooperates with the treatment. To begin the treatment process, the dentist will take diagnostic images and impressions of the patient’s teeth. Detailed dental evaluation report and records along with the dentist’s prescription will be sent to the ClearCorrect manufacturer’s lab.
A precise 3-D model of the teeth is then fabricated in the lab. The ClearCorrect treatment experts will then create a meticulous treatment plan involving step by step realignment of teeth. Before and after the treatment, the patient will get access to a computerized representation of how the teeth positioning will improve. Any concerns of the patient can be addressed at this stage even before the actual treatment begins.
High precision is achieved with advanced digital mapping and molding technologies to create custom aligners. Dr. Strain’s dental office receives patients from Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs, Palm Desert, and nearby areas for ClearCorrect treatment.
ClearCorrect Treatment Options
Patients who select ClearCorrect aligner treatment will be offered three choices in most cases. The first is the ‘Unlimited’ option, which will enable to the patient to receive as many aligners as may be required during the course of the treatment.
‘Limited 12’ and ‘Limited 6’ are other options where the patient will receive 12 and six sets of aligners respectively. The dentist will recommend the most appropriate treatment option after assessing the patient’s unique requirements.
Results of ClearCorrect aligner treatment will start becoming visible over a few months as the teeth begin to align and adjust gradually into their new desired position. Full and final results can be seen at the end of the treatment, which could last one to two years.
