Braces vs. ClearCorrect®: What’s the Difference?

Specials Leave a comment  

ClearCorrect AlignerDeciding to straighten your teeth is the first step toward achieving the smile you’ve always wanted, but there is another important decision ahead of you: how will you do it?

You could go the traditional route and straighten your teeth with metal braces. That’s always an option, and it’s never too late! In fact, according to US News and World Report, adults made up a record 1.5 million orthodontic patients in the US and Canada in 2014.

In addition to metal braces, that number includes adults using invisible braces, like ClearCorrect®. These are a series of removable plastic trays that gradually shift your teeth into alignment. They deliver the same results as traditional braces, but they offer many advantages.

7 Reasons to Choose ClearCorrect® Over Metal Braces

  1. No Dietary Adjustments Required: When you wear metal braces, you need to cut certain foods out of your diet. Many foods, especially hard and sticky things, can damage your braces. Since you can remove ClearCorrect® trays when you eat, this isn’t a concern during your treatment.
  2. Brush and Floss Like Normal: Braces require extra hygienic care. You’ll need to use a special tool to get the floss behind your wire and carefully brush and clean around your brackets. With ClearCorrect®, simply remove the trays and brush and floss like you always do.
  3. Braces Can be a Hazard During Certain Activities: If you enjoy participating in certain activities, you will be at risk of damaging your mouth if you fall or get hit with your braces. ClearCorrect® does not present the same risk.
  4. ClearCorrect® is More Comfortable: Braces come with brackets, bands, and wires that can rub against your cheeks, tongue, and gums. Your aligner trays won’t have any wires or brackets, so discomfort isn’t an issue.
  5. Treatment Times Tend to be Shorter: While there is slight variance depending on your case, most ClearCorrect® treatments take 6-18 months, while braces tend to take an average of 2 years.
  6. You Won’t Need as Many Check-Ups: When you have braces, you need to see your dentist every 3-6 weeks. After the beginning stages of ClearCorrect®, you’ll only need to stop by the office every 2-3 months.
  7. You Can’t See ClearCorrect® Aligner Trays: Even when your tray is inserted, it’s difficult to spot. No one will even know you’re wearing the trays!

Have your Best Valentine’s Day

Check out These Tips on How to Make your Valentine’s Day the Best it Can Be

Cosmetic Dentistry Options

Valentine’s Day is approaching, which means you will want to look your best for your date, whether your significant other is your boyfriend, girlfriend, fiancé, or spouse. Since your smile is one of the first things your special someone will notice, it makes sense to want it to look as good as possible. Not only will you want to have your own smile to be its whitest, brightest, and aesthetically pleasing, but when giving a gift to your loved one for Valentine’s Day, you’ll want to be sure that you give gifts that aren’t going to cause them more dental problems, like sugary sweets!

Candy and Valentine’s Day

Candy and Valentine’s Day seem to be synonymous, making it a challenge to choose candies that aren’t filled with sugar. But some types of candies are worse than other — for your teeth and your health. So if you still want to get your sweetheart sweets, be smart about it. The type of candy to avoid is anything sour, sticky, and sweet. Sour candy can be especially detrimental because the acid can eat away at teeth enamel. Instead, as long as your significant other isn’t diabetic, turn to chocolate and softer sweets like peanut butter cups or soft chocolate pieces for this occasional indulgence for Valentine’s Day.

Cosmetic Dentistry Options

If you are looking to improve your smile before Valentine’s Day, it’s time to put your plan in motion. For a last minute smile improvement, the best choice is teeth whitening. There are various types of whitening options, some of which are done in just an hour. And most new whitening methods don’t cause sensitivity, which means the teeth whitening can be done right before Valentine’s Day. If you have about a month or more before your special Valentine’s Day celebration, consider getting veneers to perfect your smile.

Tips for a Better Smile

There are also some general tips that help keep your smile looking beautiful for Valentine’s Day and beyond. Besides following regular dental care daily, you should also be careful how much sugar you eat and drink, as it can cause discoloration of the teeth and add to tooth decay. Eating healthy foods and drinking plenty of water is always better for your teeth.

Tips for Sweeter Smelling Breath

If you are concerned about bad breath — and fresh breath is a priority on Valentine’s Day — use mouthwash daily with fluoride. Brushing your tongue and flossing at least once a day also helps to keep your breath sweet smelling. Be sure to see your dentist regularly, because gum disease, including gingivitis and periodontal disease can contribute to bad breath.
