You and your friends decided to get together for a game of basketball today, and it was a wonderful idea. The weather was just perfect and everyone had a great time. Now that the game is over, it’s time to relax, but your friends immediately take out their cameras and phones and ask everyone to stand together. You know that all of these pictures will soon be up on social media, and many of them will include your crooked teeth. You’ve always been self-conscious about them, but you never could convince yourself that braces were right for you. They just seem like they’d be so uncomfortable, but what else can you do? Dr. Rick Cofer, your dentist in Waco, TX, wants you to know that you can now get the straighter smile you’ve always wanted with ClearCorrect.
What Is ClearCorrect?
For many years, the best way to straighten your teeth was considered to be metal braces. This is because they are able to handle a wide array of orthodontic issues, and are quite durable. However, one of the main drawbacks is that they overwhelmingly affect the one thing you are trying to improve: your appearance. The solution to this has been the invention of ClearCorrect. Rather than using unsightly brackets and wires, ClearCorrect uses clear plastic aligner trays to gently straighten your teeth. A series of trays is custom made for you, and each one is worn at a specific point in your treatment. You simply wear each aligner tray for about 22 hours a day for 2 weeks before progressing onto the next one. After you have worn them all, your smile will be completely straight.
ClearCorrect vs. Traditional Braces
Of course, the big question is how do metal braces compare to ClearCorrect clear braces in Waco, TX? Here is how the two of them stack up against each other:
- Appearance: ClearCorrect, as the name suggests, is nearly invisible when worn. You will probably be the only person who notices that you have a tray on, unlike with braces.
- Removable: The trays easily slide on and off of your teeth. This means you can take them out whenever you want to eat or brush your teeth. This makes it much simpler for you to keep your teeth clean, and saves you from having to drastically change your diet.
- Comfort: The smooth plastic of ClearCorrect is much more comfortable compared to braces, which often can irritate the tissue of your mouth and gums.
- Time: Not only can ClearCorrect straighten your teeth faster than braces (in as little as 12-18 months), it also requires fewer visits to Dr. Cofer to monitor your progress. This can save you a lot of time over the course of your treatment.
Due to all of these benefits, this is why ClearCorrect is often the choice for image conscious adults and teenagers alike.
How Can I Get ClearCorrect?
The first step to getting ClearCorrect is to visit Premier Family Dental. It is specially designed for each patient, which is why your cosmetic dentist in Waco, TX will begin the process by taking a series of impressions, photos, and scans of your teeth.
