Wonky teeth but don’t want braces in Colchester?

The trouble with braces that have brackets and wires is that they don’t come out. They are cemented onto your teeth and are there for months. You may have to adjust your diet to make it easier to keep them clean. You may find yourself spending ages after each meal fiddling around with dental floss and interdental brushes trying to remove food stuck behind the wires. You may find yourself having to deal with invasive questions when you are at work, or out having fun. All of these are reasons why you may have wonky teeth but can’t face braces in Colchester.

If that’s the case, then you need to know about ClearCorrect clear aligners available from us at Hello Dental.

What is ClearCorrect?

ClearCorrect clear aligners do the same job as traditional bracket and wire braces in Colchester, but use devices that look like clear plastic mouth guards instead.

We take detailed measurements of how your teeth are now and calculate how they need to move to become properly aligned. We send this information off to ClearCorrect and they make a series of aligners. You wear each one in the series for a period of time. Usually, each aligner starts off feeling somewhat uncomfortable, like it doesn’t quite fit, as pressure from the aligner activates a bone removal and rebuilding process that allows your teeth to move in your jawbone. When the pressure wears off, and this happens more quickly in kids than in adults, then it’s time to move onto the next aligner in the series.

Great things about ClearCorrect

Two big pluses about ClearCorrect are that they are pretty much unnoticeable once they are in place over your teeth, as the plastic is so thin. So, you can go about your daily business without having to fend off unwanted questions and suffer stares from strangers. Also, because the aligners are removable, you can continue to eat whatever you like and won’t have to spend ages cleaning your teeth, although you do need to clean them every time you eat or drink anything other than plain water, or the plastic will stain.
