ClearCorrect Aligners in Pinehurst, NC
Straighten teeth the intelligent way with ClearCorrect. Call (910) 695-3050 to speak to our friendly staff at Hubbard Dental today.
We want you to show off your smile. Unfortunately, misaligned teeth can make people self-conscious. In many cases, orthodontic treatments or tooth-straightening procedures gradually shift the position of the teeth, so they line up nicely. Straighter teeth produce a more attractive smile and help to prevent oral health problems later in life.
ClearCorrect is a tooth-straightening procedure and an alternative to braces with similarities to Invisalign. We offer ClearCorrect at Hubbard Dental because we believe ClearCorrect to be the best tooth alignment procedure for our patients. If you desire straighter teeth, learn more about ClearCorrect and how it can help you.
Do I Need Straighter Teeth?
Not everybody needs straighter teeth. Some people have naturally straight adult teeth, while others have cosmetic misalignment and choose not to straighten them. However, if they are hurting your self-esteem, confidence, or social life, why not have the straight teeth you deserve?
Teenagers with dental misalignments often have trouble fitting in and face social anxiety and cyberbullying problems. Adults may feel awkward at social gatherings and work functions, impacting their professional development and quality of life.
In addition to the cosmetic benefits of straighter teeth, tooth-straightening products like ClearCorrect make it easier to take care of your teeth. Crooked teeth are harder to brush and floss, which leads to a higher risk for cavities and periodontal disease. In addition, tooth misalignment makes it difficult for the jaws to close correctly, resulting in bruxism, grinding of the teeth, and pain in the jaw muscles.
In some cases, misaligned teeth are at risk for chipping and breakage because the teeth strike each other at an angle rather than head-on.
Your dentist can help you determine whether tooth-straightening treatment can help you and explain the risks and benefits of any procedure to straighten teeth. Our patients at Hubbard Dental appreciate the time we take during the consultation to thoroughly understand the process and know what to expect during and after treatment.
Advantages of Clear Correct
We choose to be a leading Clear Correct provider in Pinehurst, NC because we believe in the product. Unfortunately, some medical or dental conditions might prevent us from offering ClearCorrect to every patient who needs straighter teeth. However, ClearCorrect is an economical and effective treatment with many advantages over metal braces and Invisalign in almost all cases.
Unlike metal braces:
- ClearCorrect aligners are clear so that other people won’t notice them
- They do not cause pain or discomfort, and they are easy to apply and remove
- ClearCorrect has a lower cost than many other forms of orthodontia
We work hard to keep our ClearCorrect treatments affordable at Hubbard Dental.
The ClearCorrect Process
Before and during ClearCorrect treatment, your dentist or a dental hygienist will:
- Examine your mouth and x-rays to determine if you have any oral health problems that might interfere with your teeth.
- Show you before and after pictures of people who have had ClearCorrect.
- Take an impression of your teeth and use it to create custom plastic aligners.
- Use 3D printing technology to create custom aligners based on the impressions.
- Give you instructions on using the aligners.
The ClearCorrect process takes place gradually, so the dentist will give you a specific number of aligners as you go through the process. The aligners move teeth as you wear them every day over several months to a year. Each aligner brings your teeth just a little closer to their optimal position. Over time, they straighten your teeth.
It is easy to take off and remove aligners, and your dentist will give you a tool specifically designed for removal. When removing the aligners, be careful to pull them in an upward motion (for the lower aligners) or downward motion (for the upper aligners) rather than pulling forward so that you do not damage them. Also, avoid eating or drinking anything hot while wearing the aligners to protect the plastic.
