Clear Correct in Albuquerque, NM

Clear Correct is one of the most comfortable orthodontic treatments available.Clear Correct is a set of clear aligners that straighten teeth without metal braces. These aligners are custom-molded to fit the patient's teeth. The patient wears each set of aligners for about two weeks. The aligners gradually shift the teeth into the desired position. 

Clear Correct Treatment Plan

Your dentist will customize a treatment plan for you. This customized plan will detail the movements of your teeth from the beginning to the end of the plan.

First, your dentist Albuquerque, NM will use digital imaging technology to generate a 3D image of your teeth. This imaging technology will capture the exact movements that your teeth will make throughout your treatment. Your dentist will use these 3D images to design your treatment plan.

You will receive your first set of aligners in about 7 to 10 days. You must wear them for at least 22 hours a day. Each aligner has to be worn for about two weeks. Then, you will move on to your next aligner in the series. Each aligner will continue to push your teeth into their proper positions.

Benefits of Clear Correct

  • Clear Correct aligners can straighten the teeth, making it easier to brush and floss. This can help to keep your teeth healthy and prevent gum disease.

Clear Correct Aftercare

Taking care of your teeth with Clear Correct is easier than with traditional braces. However, there are still several things you can do to keep your teeth and Clear Correct aligners clean.

  • Remember to brush your teeth after every meal. Since your aligners are removable, there are no restrictions on what you can eat or drink. Simply remove your aligners, clean your teeth, and then replace the aligners.
  • Avoid chewing on hard foods, such as hard candy, ice, and popcorn kernels. Eating hard foods while wearing your aligners can crack or break them. Remember to remove them before eating or drinking.
  • You can remove the aligners whenever you need to eat or drink, brush and floss, or participate in sports or other activities. Clear Correct aligners can also be removed just for photos or special occasions.
