What Are Clear Correct Invisible Braces?
posted: Dec. 29, 2020.
Clear correct invisible braces are convenient for people who want to straighten their teeth discreetly. Dr. Brett Allen of Allen Family Dental in Scottsville, KY can do just that. He understands that his patients don't always want traditional braces, so he offers practically invisible braces to correct orthodontic issues.
Dr. Allen discusses the advantages of clear correct braces by saying clear braces are more attractive than traditional braces because they don't have wires and brackets but still improve alignment.
You don't need wires tightened every few weeks because the aligner trays gradually shift teeth into their proper position. You'll still visit your dentist periodically so Dr. Allen can make sure everything is proceeding properly and to give you a new set of aligner trays. You'll get a new set every two weeks to continue shifting teeth to their proper position.
Because clear correct invisible braces don't have wires poking your gums and cheeks, soft oral tissue won't become irritated. The braces correct your bite problems, improve your appearance, and treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues, like:
- open bites
- under crowding
What does the process entail?
Your Scottsville dentist creates a computerized image of your mouth using impressions and photographs to design your clear correct aligners.
Convenience and Ease of Use
You need to wear your clear correct aligner trays 22 hours a day, only taking them out to eat because they're, conveniently, removable. You can also remove them if you're playing a sport or during a special event. You don't need to worry about food restrictions and, for the most part, don't need to take off the braces during events because they're clear.
