Feeling great about your smile can have a positive ripple effect on your whole life – when you are confident in your smile, it shows and others take notice! If you find yourself hiding your smile because of crooked teeth, gaps, or crowding, ClearCorrect may be the perfect treatment for you! This nearly invisible alternative to braces offered at Vineyard Dental Group in Santa Rosa, CA discreetly straightens your teeth comfortably and effectively.
How ClearCorrect works
ClearCorrect orthodontic treatment is an advanced dental technology that delivers terrific results – without the unsightly and uncomfortable metal brackets and wires associated with traditional braces. In your initial consultation, Dr. Saeidi will first discuss your goals for your teeth and examine your teeth, gums, and bite to make sure that ClearCorrect is the best option for your needs. A series of clear aligners is then custom-made for your mouth, with each set designed to gradually shift your teeth into their optimal position. We will give you instructions on how many hours per day to wear the aligners (we typically recommend at least 22 hours per day) and how frequently to change them out, and schedule periodic check-ups to check in on your progress. Without wires to tighten or brackets to adjust, these check-ups are fast and painless and need to be done less frequently than with regular braces.
Patients love ClearCorrect for its great results and comfortable, efficient treatment process. Even better, ClearCorrect aligners are removable, so you can enjoy all of your favorite foods and beverages without worrying about brackets popping off or wires becoming loose. The total treatment time depends on your needs, but many patients are done with their treatment within a year and then shift to a nightly retainer to help maintain their beautiful, straight teeth.
What ClearCorrect can treat
ClearCorrect does more than just straighten teeth. It can be used for a wide variety of orthodontic issues, such as:
