What is ClearCorrect?

The ClearCorrect system is a set of clear, custom-made removable aligners that are made from Zendura, a custom formulation of medical-grade polyurethane. FDA approved and free of bisphenol-A ("BPA") and phthalates, the materials in ClearCorrect aligners have been thoroughly tested for biocompatability. This series of comfortable aligners can correct your bite, close gaps and fix overcrowding, which can improve your dental health and your smile.

How Does It Work?

When used as directed, each clear aligner gradually shifts your teeth until the desired result is achieved. When you change to the next set in your custom-made series of aligners, your teeth continue to move. Each custom-made clear aligner is crafted to apply controlled force that moves your teeth into position.

The Process

At your initial consultation, we will examine your teeth and discuss which options are right for you. A specialized digital scanning system is then used to create precise 3-D digital images of your teeth. Dr. Vahid will create a personalized treatment plan that progressively moves your teeth from their current position to their optimal alignment. This cutting-edge technology allows you to see how your teeth will move, the approximate length of treatment and the look of your new smile. The ClearCorrect Invisible Braces lab will create multiple custom-made clear plastic aligners that fit firmly over your top and bottom teeth. For best results, you will wear these clear aligners 20 to 22 hours per day for 2-3 weeks at a time, and move on to the next set of aligners in your series until teeth are aligned.

Advantages of ClearCorrect Invisible Braces

ClearCorrect Invisible Braces are often are barely noticeable. Aligners are removable and can be taken out for special occasions, photos, eating, and brushing and flossing. Other benefits of the ClearCorrect Invisible Braces include:

  • Easy care and good oral hygiene–aligners can be removed for easy cleaning. You can also take them out to brush and floss, which improves oral hygiene and prevents decay.
  • No dietary restrictions–with traditional metal braces, certain sticky or hard foods are off-limits.
  • Comfort–no pain or injuries due to sharp brackets and wires.
  • Protection from teeth grinding— aligners can also function as night guards and protect your teeth from excessive wear if you clench or grind your teeth.
  • Clear signs of progress–with ClearCorrect, you may see visible results at every stage of treatment.
