ClearCorrect Invisible Braces | Annapolis MD
For some of our orthodontics patients, metal braces just won’t do. If you’re not a fan of the idea of metal braces, ClearCorrect may be the right choice for you. No wires. No brackets. Just clear, convenient comfort. And every reason to smile.
With ClearCorrect, Dr. Gena can straighten your teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner moves your teeth just a little bit at a time until you eventually get straight teeth.
The ClearCorrect Process
Together with Dr. Gena, we’ll evaluate your teeth and talk about any problems or goals you have for your smile. Once we establish that ClearCorrect is the right treatment option for you, we’ll take impressions, photos, and possibly x-rays of your teeth.
Creating 3D Models of Your Teeth
Then our staff will send your records to ClearCorrect along with a prescription. ClearCorrect will use those records to create 3D models of your teeth. Following the instructions provided by Dr. Gena, ClearCorrect creates a “treatment setup” representing the desired position of your teeth at the end of treatment. At the same time, ClearCorrect also manufactures “Phase Zero” passive aligners designed to fit your teeth and get you accustomed to wearing aligners right away.
3D Printing and Your Straighter Smile
When we’re satisfied with the fit of Phase Zero and the projected results shown in your treatment setup, ClearCorrect maps out a plan for gradual adjustment throughout your treatment. Then the manufacturing process begins. Using the latest 3D printing technology, ClearCorrect creates your custom aligners with computer precision. ClearCorrect then sends your first phase of active aligners to your Dr. Gena, and you’re ready to start.
When Do You Wear ClearCorrect
You’ll wear your aligners all the time, except while eating and drinking or during daily brushing and flossing. Your ClearCorrect aligners will be so clear they’ll barely be noticeable, so they won’t have an impact on your day to day life. Aligner by aligner, you’ll be able to see the difference as your teeth slowly adjust and align to your target smile. You’ll visit Dr. Gena periodically to check on your progress and get new phases of aligners, until you eventually have the straight smile you’ve always wanted.
