ClearCorrect

Do you have crooked, gapped, or misaligned teeth but don't want the hassle of bulky and uncomfortable metal braces?

ClearCorrect aligners are a clear, discreet alternative to give you a straighter smile without metal wires and brackets. 

Learn how Sweet Tooth Dental in Kailua-Kona, HI, can give you a beautifully straight smile with ClearCorrect.

How Does ClearCorrect Work?

ClearCorrect is a series of clear aligner trays that work by using gentle pressure to guide your teeth into proper alignment. Patients wear each set for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next in the series. ClearCorrect results can be achieved in about 12 to 18 months, which is shorter than the average of 24 months with traditional orthodontics like braces. Clear aligner systems like ClearCorrect are a well-known, efficient, and convenient alternative to metal braces.

ClearCorrect Benefits

ClearCorrect is a trusted orthodontic alternative to metal braces. It has multiple benefits such as:

Discreet Treatment

Because the aligners are clear, they are practically unnoticeable. Most people won't even realize you are wearing them, so you can straighten your smile without anyone knowing you are undergoing treatment.

Removable Trays

Unlike traditional orthodontic treatments like braces, ClearCorrect trays are removable, so patients have no dietary restrictions. You can eat what you love without worrying about breaking a bracket or wire.

Improved Oral Hygiene

Misaligned teeth can make it difficult to brush and floss effectively. By correcting orthodontic issues, you can better maintain your oral health.

Faster Timeline

Treatment using ClearCorrect is quicker than traditional orthodontics. The average treatment time with ClearCorrect is 12 to 18 months, whereas the average treatment time for braces is about 24 months.

Easier Maintenance

Aligner systems like ClearCorrect are easy to maintain as there are no metal wires and brackets to brush around. Simply take out your aligners and clean them with mild soap and a soft-bristle toothbrush.

Candidates for ClearCorrect Treatment

Aligner systems like ClearCorrect are trusted and tried orthodontic solutions that can correct most mild to moderate bite issues; however, not everyone will qualify for this orthodontic option. Good candidates for ClearCorrect include patients who:

Are Committed to Treatment

Patients who undergo ClearCorrect treatment must be committed to wearing their aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day for optimal and fast results. If you cannot commit to wearing your aligners for the required amount of time, traditional orthodontics may be a better option for you.

Have Mild to Moderate Alignment Issues

While ClearCorrect can treat a host of orthodontic issues, patients with more severe bite problems may not qualify for this clear aligner treatment. Orthodontic options like traditional braces may be the best option for patients with severe misalignment.

As you wear your aligners, they apply gentle pressure on your teeth to gradually shift them into proper alignment over a period of several months. The aligners are removable and practically unnoticeable, making them a great orthodontic alternative for patients who do not want the hassle of bulky metal braces.

"ClearCorrect is a discreet orthodontic treatment option that helps patients achieve results in about 12 to 18 months."
"ClearCorrect is a discreet orthodontic treatment option that helps patients achieve results in about 12 to 18 months."

Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth and mouth. He will discuss your oral health history and ask about your goals to determine if you are a good candidate for ClearCorrect.

Impressions

Your dentist will take impressions of your mouth, so your aligner trays will be comfortable and fit precisely over your teeth.

Fabrication of Clear Aligners

Your impressions will be sent to a dental lab where professionals will create your aligners using smooth, BPA-free plastic. The aligners are then sent to our Kailua-Kona dental office in Hawaii.

Begin Treatment

Once your aligners arrive at our dental office, your dentist will ensure a comfortable fit. You can then wear the first set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day. After about two weeks, you can switch to the next set of aligners in the series. Over the course of treatment, you will periodically see your dentist in our Kailua-Kona dental office so he can monitor your progress.

Maintain Results

Once treatment is finished, it is recommended that you continue to wear an aligner at night to maintain your beautiful new smile. Dr. Oka will provide you with all the instructions you need to keep your smile straight.
It's important to remember that the treatment timeline will vary based on each patient's unique dental needs. Some patients will see results in just a few months, while others will need more time to achieve a straighter smile.

ClearCorrect Aligner Maintenance

Caring for your teeth and aligners is easy. When it is time to brush, remove the aligner trays and brush and floss your teeth as normal. Clean your aligner trays with a soft-bristle toothbrush, water, and mild soap. If you have any questions before, during, or after treatment, our Kailua-Kona dental office is here to help.

Affordable Financing Available
