STRAIGHTER TEETH WITHOUT PAIN!
If you have crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth, you might have thought that traditional braces were the only option available to you. However, those with mild to moderate levels of misalignment don’t have to necessarily settle for traditional options if they don’t want to. ZEN DENTAL CENTER is happy to offer ClearCorrect in our Seattle, WA dental office, two systems that use clear plastic trays to straighten teeth in less time and with more freedom. To see if treatment is right for you, give us a call!
How Does ClearCorrect Work?
Unlike traditional metal braces, which are cemented onto your teeth and can only be removed by your orthodontist, invisible aligners can be removed by the wearer. Though they should be worn every single day for at least 22 hours a day for effective results, they can be removed while eating and cleaning the teeth. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and then switched to the next in the series of aligners, each piece designed to gradually and gently move your teeth into place according to your custom treatment plan. Depending on your unique case, treatment can last anywhere between three to eighteen months.
ClearCorrect is perhaps the most well-known clear aligner system in the country thanks to the millions of people who have transformed their smiles with this service. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks at a time. From there, you move on to the next pair in your series until you wear all of them. During this process, you’ll need to visit our dental office once every 6 weeks or so in order to confirm that your realignment is working as intended.
Benefits of Invisible Aligners
Vs. Traditional Metal Braces
Appearance: Virtually undetectable, invisible aligners are especially ideal for adults who want to avoid a mouth full of metal wires and brackets. Since you remove them to eat, there is also no chance of embarrassing incidents like unknowingly having food stuck in between the wires. And best of all, your smile will look natural through every step of your treatment!
Comfort: Because they are custom-made for your mouth, invisible aligners are exceedingly comfortable.
Convenience: They can be removed when eating and cleaning your teeth.
Improved Oral Hygiene: Unlike metal brackets and wires, you will be able to brush and floss normally by simply removing your invisible aligner while you clean your teeth.
No Changes to Your Diet: Since you remove the aligners to eat, you won’t have to give up chewy, crunchy or hard foods that can be problematic with metal brackets and wires.
