ClearCorrect in Wexford, PA
At Livewell Dentistry in Wexford, PA, we give you a comfortable and convenient alternative to metal braces for orthodontic treatment. ClearCorrect is a simple system for straightening your teeth without using wires or brackets. Instead, Dr. Leslie Pasco uses a series of clear, custom, removable aligners to move your teeth just a little bit at a time until they’re properly aligned.
ClearCorrect is just as effective as traditional metal braces for the treatment of mild to moderate orthodontic issues. But it offers a myriad of other benefits, including:
- Improved hygiene – Since the clear aligners are removable, you can easily brush and floss your teeth like normal. There are no blind spots for bacteria to hide, which reduces the risk of white spot lesions. Moreover, if your teeth are prone to white spots or cavities, your custom aligners can be supplemented with fluoride to harden your tooth enamel and help to clean the trays.
- Aesthetics – The transparent trays are virtually undetectable in your mouth, which means that you can go on with your social life like normal, throughout the period of your treatment.
- Comfort – There are no cuts, abrasions, or awkward adjustments associated with the wires and brackets of traditional braces. This makes clear aligners comfortable and convenient for most people.
How ClearCorrect Works
ClearCorrect uses transparent plastic orthodontic appliances rather than metal wires and brackets. The treatment uses a series of clear, removable, custom-made trays that are fabricated using CAD/CAM technology to move your teeth in small increments.
The process involves the use of an intraoral scanner to create 3D models of your teeth, which are arranged to replicate your bite on a computer screen. Each tooth is then individually moved – on the screen – to adjust your bite and create a plan for your actual dental treatment.
This essentially helps to create the path of least resistance to move your teeth to the desired position, even before your treatment begins, which increases the success rate and reduces treatment time.
If you have crowded teeth, unusually spaced teeth, abfractions caused by improper bite, TMJ, or any other dental or jaw problem, we recommend that you book an appointment with Dr. Pasco for proper evaluation and treatment. We will determine whether clear aligner therapy is right for you, or any additional orthodontic treatments you may require.
