ClearCorrect – McKinney, TX
Straighter Teeth without Brackets and Wires
For generations, traditional metal braces were the best (and often the only) way to correct dental misalignment. Nowadays, though, more discreet alternatives are available. Here at Lake Forest Dental of McKinney, we are proud to provide ClearCorrect in McKinney. This discreet and convenient orthodontic treatment offers a slew of advantages. Read on below to learn more about it, and get in touch with our team when you are ready to schedule your consultation.
How ClearCorrect Works
To get started, schedule a consultation with Dr. Cha, your dentist in McKinney. He will analyze your teeth and determine whether ClearCorrect would work for you. If it looks like a good fit, he will send detailed impressions of your teeth to the ClearCorrect lab, which will fabricate your custom clear aligners.
Once your aligners are ready, you’ll wear each one for about two weeks before moving onto the next. As the aligners apply consistent pressure to your teeth, they will gradually shift into their proper positions. You’ll visit us periodically throughout your treatment so we can monitor your progress.
Indications for ClearCorrect
ClearCorrect is capable of correcting a wide range of mild to moderate dental alignment problems, including crowded teeth, gaps between the teeth, and malocclusion (a misaligned bite).
Crowded, overlapping teeth can trap food between them and be at a high risk of decay. They are also prone to breakage Fortunately, ClearCorrect (along with possible extractions) can give each tooth the space it needs to thrive.
Gaps Between Teeth
Gapped teeth may cause you to be self-conscious about your smile. They can also leave your gums vulnerable to irritation. ClearCorrect can shift the teeth closer together to enhance your smile’s aesthetics and improve your oral health.
Overbite, underbite, open bite, and crossbite are all forms of malocclusion. They can increase your risk of TMJ disorder and a range of other problems. ClearCorrect, usually with the help of other orthodontic accessories, is often able to correct such bite issues.
The Benefits of ClearCorrect
Some of the top benefits of ClearCorrect include:
- The aligners are barely noticeable once they are on the teeth, making them ideal for image-conscious individuals.
- Easy oral hygiene. The aligners are removable, so you won’t have to learn any special techniques for brushing and flossing your teeth.
- No dietary restrictions. You’ll remove your aligners at mealtimes, so you can feel free to eat all of your favorite treats.
- Fast treatment. Treatment times vary from patient to patient. On average, ClearCorrect takes only 12 months to finish its work.
How Much Does ClearCorrect Cost?
The price of ClearCorrect depends on a few factors, including how many aligners are necessary, the extent of a patient’s dental misalignment, and more. It typically costs at least a few thousand dollars. In most cases, ClearCorrect has a lower price than Invisalign.
Dental insurance covers ClearCorrect in rare cases. You may also be eligible for low-interest financing through CareCredit. Our team will do all we can to help you afford your treatment.
