Your source for Clear Correct in Idaho Falls
Many patients tell us that they would have more confidence if they liked their smile more. Whiter and straighter are typically the words they use to describe the changes they would like to see. When we ask patients who express wanting straighter teeth what has held them back, they often tell us that they do not want to have to go through a couple years of wearing braces. Clear Correct can help you achieve confidence by straightening your teeth without the look of braces. To learn more about some of our other options for cosmetic dentistry click here.
Teeth whitening can be easily accomplished through using at home, or professional whitening. Getting straighter teeth, on the other hand, requires the help of a dental professional if you want reliable results.
One of the main concerns that many of our patients have in regards to getting straighter teeth is that they will look funny in braces. While braces may not be the top choice in fashion, many people get braces so most people don’t give them a second look. Even if they do, straight teeth for the rest of your life might be worth a few weird looks.
If weird looks are something you simply must avoid, clear aligners like Clear Correct could be the right choice for you.
Alternatives For Conventional Braces
There are a couple different options if you decide that you do not want to go the route of conventional braces. You should consult with your dentist or orthodontist to see what options are available to you in your situation.
The first option, if you don’t want visible braces, is lingual braces. Lingual braces are on the inside of your teeth so that nobody can see them. While almost any case can be done with lingual braces, the negative aspect of lingual braces is that they can be painful.
The second alternative is some form of clear aligner. Some names that you might be familiar with are Invisalign or Clear Correct. These options can be used for many people, but are not always a viable option depending on what needs to be corrected.
Our Options at Oxford Dental Care
Clear Correct is the invisible aligner that we have chosen to use. It is a virtually invisible method to straighten your teeth. You come in every six weeks and get three custom trays per visit. You wear those trays for two weeks each and then move to the next one. The trays are to be worn for 22 hours per day. This means if you have a big presentation, a job interview or a date, you can take them out for those.
