Dreaming of straightening your teeth so you can finally show off your smile with confidence? Thanks to modern orthodontic solutions, you can easily turn that dream to reality! But modern dentistry may bring with it another problem: With so many orthodontic treatment options out there, how can you decide which one is the right one for you?
At Chesterfield Dentistry, we provide ClearCorrect, a type of clear aligner therapy, as well as Six Month Smiles, an accelerated braces system. In this post, we wanted to tackle the first treatment option specifically to help you figure out if you should pursue ClearCorrect. If you agree with any of the following scenarios, then chances are ClearCorrect is something seriously worth considering!
You Want to Straighten Your Teeth but Your Misalignment Issues Aren’t Severe.
ClearCorrect can fix the same types of problems that braces can. That includes gaps, spaces, and crookedness as well as overbites, underbites, and crossbites. The difference is braces are seen as the better option for those with very advanced or more complex alignment problems.
Of course, it may be difficult to know if your current condition is considered “severe” or not so your best bet is to see a dental professional in person.
You Want Your Orthodontic Treatment to Be As Unnoticeable as Possible.
We get it. You may not feel your coolest or most confident if you’re wearing braces. If you’re an adult, you may feel particularly self-conscious about having metal brackets and wires on your teeth since that’s often associated with teens. While we don’t necessarily subscribe to that idea and braces are still a great option for people of many different ages, it’s completely understandable to want to straighten your teeth in a more subtle way.
Cue ClearCorrect! ClearCorrect uses a series of clear aligners that blend in with your teeth so they’re hardly noticeable to other people. You can think of them as like barely invisible mouth guards!
You Don’t Want to Fuss with Special Brushing Instructions or Food Restrictions During Your Orthodontic Treatment.
Since ClearCorrect aligners are completely removable, you can continue to brush and floss your teeth as you always have. You won’t have to use any special products to get to hard-to-reach areas since you’ll just pop out your aligners when it’s time to clean your teeth.
Being able to fully remove your ClearCorrect aligners also means that you don’t have to cut out certain foods from your diet or worry about certain foods messing up your orthodontic hardware, which can sometimes happen with braces.
