There is a common misconception that crooked teeth only affect the way that your smile looks. Misalignment not only affects your confidence, but it also puts the health of your teeth and gums at risk. Overcrowded teeth can overlap each other and create tiny storage places for bacteria to hide. Hiding places keep harmful bacteria from being removed during brushing and flossing, which gives it extra time to cause tooth decay and gum disease. Hiding bacteria can also cause you to have chronic bad breath, known as halitosis. A misalignment of your smile can also increase your risk of developing TMJ disorder. Correcting your crooked smile with ClearCorrect® treatment can help to reduce the risk of developing these issues.
Clear, Nearly Invisible, Discreet
Many adults avoid correcting a crooked smile for fear of how the treatment will make them look. ClearCorrect® aligners are made from a clear and nearly invisible acrylic, which makes them hardly noticeable when worn. The aligners are custom-designed to your fit your unique smile snugly and comfortably.
Removable for Hygiene’s Sake
Unlike traditional metal wire and bracket braces, ClearCorrect® aligners can be removed whenever you want. In fact, they should be removed for your oral hygiene routine, eating, or drinking. While it is necessary to wear them at least 22 hours a day for effective treatment, you can take the aligner out at your discretion. Being able to brush and floss teeth fully gives you a chance to efficiently clean your mouth and keep it healthy. At the end of treatment, your teeth will be straighter and easier to clean.
Lowering Your Risks
Misalignment can lead to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder by putting unbalanced pressure on your jaw joints. TMJ disorder is the malfunction and pain associated with the hinge joints of your jaw. Correcting your alignment with ClearCorrect® can help to decrease your risks of developing TMJ disorder, tooth decay, gum disease, and more. ClearCorrect® works by slowly, gently, and efficiently shifting your teeth into the correct alignment.
