Clear aligners have been around for some time now, but patients still wonder about them and their benefits. Clear aligners offer an alternative to traditional braces by correcting alignment issues through a series of plastic aligners that slowly move teeth into their correct position.
At Hello Dental, we are delighted to offer ClearCorrect braces in Colchester. These practically invisible braces are ideal for image-conscious teenagers and adults who cannot tolerate the thought of sporting metal braces for months or years on end.
How do I know if I need ClearCorrect braces in Colchester?
Has your dentist suggested that you need to straighten your teeth in order to avoid future oral problems? Then you may be wondering what’s the appropriate teeth-straightening treatment for you. While you cannot make this decision on your own, it is important to understand that ClearCorrect braces cannot address all teeth-straightening issues. As a matter of fact, ClearCorrect braces can only help you if your teeth are lightly-to-moderately crooked. Severe misalignment issues may require a different type of treatment altogether.
Is the treatment process straightforward?
Once you agree with your dentist that this is the right treatment for your specific dental needs, they will take high-quality impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create a 3D image. This image will be used as the foundation for the creation of your aligners, but will also help to determine the exact movements your teeth will need to make in order to reach their correct positions. Once your ClearCorrect aligners are ready, your dentist will advise you on how to wear them. Typically, you will need to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day throughout the treatment. Failure to comply can endanger your entire treatment. As with braces, some people may need to wear special retainers after the end of the treatment in order to ensure that their teeth remain straight.
