Clear Aligners for Straighter Teeth
If you are interested in correcting your smile and fixing issues like crooked, gapped, or otherwise malpositioned teeth, but you don’t want to get traditional metal braces, Clear Correct from Dr. Timothy Shen at Trinity Family Dental could be one of the best options for you.
This unique method of orthodontic correction uses safe, comfortable, and non-invasive techniques to correct the position of your teeth. It’s convenient and affordable, and best of all, nobody has to know that you are correcting your smile!
If you are an older individual looking to correct your smile, or you simply are not interested in traditional braces, and you do not need serious orthodontic correction, Clear Correct is the best way to straighten your teeth and get the smile you’ve always wanted.
Who Is Eligible For Treatment With Clear Correct?
There are two criteria for Clear Correct eligibility. First, your mouth must be healthy, and free of cavities, periodontal diseases, damaged teeth, and other such problems, which cause complications during Clear Correct treatment.
In addition, you must not have severe orthodontic issues, like very crooked teeth, jaw malpositioning, or significant over/underbite. Clear Correct can’t be used to treat these problems.
What Are The Benefits Of Treatment With Clear Correct?
Why should you choose Clear Correct to treat your orthodontic issues? Here are just a couple of reasons.
Cheaper than Invisalign – Typically, Clear Correct treatment is less expensive than treatment with competing products like Invisalign, though this may vary based on your particular needs.
Removable – You can remove Clear Correct aligners to eat and drink, so there are no food or dietary restrictions. They can also be removed to brush and floss, and when you play contact sports.
Comfortable and convenient – With Clear Correct, you do not have to experience the discomfort of braces being tightened, and you do not need to visit the dentist as frequently.

More About Clear Aligners
Who are the best candidates for clear aligners?
Clear aligners are generally a good option for people who have mild to moderate misalignment of their teeth or bite. They can be used to correct a variety of issues, including overcrowding, gaps between teeth, overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
Clear aligners are typically not recommended for people with more severe misalignment or malocclusion, as they may not be able to provide enough force to move the teeth into the desired position. In these cases, traditional metal braces or other orthodontic treatments may be necessary.
Clear aligners may not be suitable for people with certain medical conditions or habits that could interfere with treatment, such as periodontal disease or a tendency to grind their teeth.
It’s important to consult with an orthodontist or other qualified dental professional to determine if clear aligners are the right option for your specific needs. They can evaluate your oral health, assess the extent of your misalignment, and recommend the most appropriate treatment.
What are some of the benefits of clear aligners over traditional metal braces?
Clear aligners have several potential benefits over traditional metal braces:
- Discretion: Clear aligners are nearly invisible when worn, which makes them a popular choice for people who are self-conscious about their appearance. Metal braces are more noticeable and can be embarrassing for some people.
- Comfort: Clear aligners are made of smooth plastic, which makes them more comfortable to wear than metal braces, which can irritate the gums and the inside of the mouth.
- Convenience: Clear aligners can be removed for eating, brushing, and cleaning, which makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene and enjoy a wider variety of foods. Metal braces require special attention to clean around the wires and brackets, and certain types of food must be avoided.
- Shorter treatment time: Clear aligners may be able to correct misalignment in a shorter amount of time than traditional braces, although this can vary depending on the individual case.
- Customization: Clear aligners are made to fit the specific needs of each patient and can be adjusted as needed throughout treatment.
It’s important to note that clear aligners are not suitable for everyone and may not be as effective as traditional braces for certain types of misalignment. It’s important to consult with an orthodontist or other qualified dental professional to determine the best treatment option for your specific needs.
