What is ClearCorrect®?

ClearCorrect® braces provide a metal-free option for teeth realignment, utilizing a series of transparent aligners rather than conventional braces. Crafted from clear, comfortable plastic akin to a full retainer, these aligners remain discreet when worn, given proper care. At Dental Center of Tysons Corner, we guide patients on aligner maintenance throughout their treatment journey.

Each aligner in the series is custom-made from impressions of your teeth and gums, gradually shifting teeth into alignment from their initial position. Typically worn for four to six weeks each, patients progress through the series, replacing aligners as directed. This gradual adjustment minimizes discomfort, applying targeted pressure to specific teeth. By adhering to the prescribed schedule, patients witness their teeth transform from misaligned to perfectly straight.

Patients receive the full set of aligners at the beginning of treatment, eliminating the need for frequent visits to our McLean dentist office for replacements. This streamlined process reduces time spent in the dental chair compared to traditional braces, offering convenience alongside effective results.

ClearCorrect® vs. Traditional Braces

Traditional metal braces remain highly effective for correcting teeth alignment and addressing misaligned jaws. Despite advancements making them more comfortable, their visibility often deters individuals. The wires, brackets, and rubber bands can impact appearance and comfort, causing distraction and inconveniences, especially for those with active or professional lifestyles. Moreover, maintaining hygiene with traditional braces requires extra effort, as food particles tend to get trapped.

In contrast, ClearCorrect® offers a convenient alternative for teeth straightening. With removable aligners, patients enjoy unrestricted eating and minimized embarrassment. Worn for at least 22 hours daily, ClearCorrect® aligners seamlessly integrate into daily activities, allowing patients to maintain confidence in social and professional settings. Additionally, the ability to remove aligners for activities like sports or playing musical instruments enhances convenience and safety, unlike traditional braces which pose challenges with mouth guard use.

For athletes in the Mclean area, ClearCorrect® presents a viable solution for maintaining dental health and athletic performance. We welcome you to schedule a consultation to explore how ClearCorrect® aligners can streamline your dental care and support your active lifestyle.
