Over recent years, ClearCorrect™ has grown in popularity as patients turn to clear aligner therapy as an alternative to noticeable traditional braces. As providers of ClearCorrect, we’ve seen many adults discreetly achieve the straight smile they’ve always wanted with this versatile orthodontic treatment. However, one thing you may have heard is that braces are more suitable for patients with severe teeth misalignment. Is that true? And if so, where do you fall on the scale? Here’s the scoop!
What ClearCorrect Can Fix
ClearCorrect is used to tackle the same kind of teeth alignment issues that braces do. This means that ClearCorrect can address a variety of misalignments, such as overbite, underbite, crossbite, gapped teeth, crowded teeth, and general crookedness. However, it is true that there are some cases of crooked teeth and severe misalignment which are more efficiently tackled with traditional braces.
Your ClearCorrect Consultation
The absolute best way to know if you’re a good candidate for ClearCorrect is to schedule a consultation with our expert Fort Worth, TX team. We’ll take a look at the position of your teeth and let you know whether you’d benefit from a clear aligner plan or a different orthodontic option. ClearCorrect is appropriate for mild to moderate misalignment. For extreme malocclusion the required movements may be too extreme for clear aligner therapy. For example, when both the teeth and jaw need repositioning or a tooth needs to be rotated a great many degrees.
Straighter Teeth Are Healthier Teeth!
Remember that straight teeth will not only improve your confidence, but they are easier to keep clean and healthy. So when you’re ready for a straighter smile, White Settlement Family Dentistry is here for you! We’d be thrilled to set up an orthodontic consultation so we can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
