Don’t be self-conscious or worried about straightening your teeth! Choose comfortable, discreet ClearCorrect®
Modern orthodontic treatment is not your mother’s or grandmother’s treatment! Today’s discreet, removable, comfortable, and tech-driven options are appropriate for teens and adults alike. Mothers, grandmothers, and other active and busy adults particularly appreciate that others do not have to see “metal mouth” in their smiles.
With clear aligner therapies, such as ClearCorrect®, others only notice the attractive and increasingly better-aligned teeth when you smile. Led by Dr. Warren Boardman, our team at Ridgewood Dentistry is experienced with the latest and safest oral appliances and orthodontic treatments to improve the appearance, health, and well-being of our patients across northern New Jersey.
The ClearCorrect® difference
Conventional orthodontic treatment generally involves using metal wires, stainless steel brackets, and rubber bands to reposition the teeth gradually. These braces have been made from silver hardware that is obvious in the smile. They could not be removed or adjusted by anyone other than the dentist or orthodontist. Furthermore, patients had to learn how to eat or clean their mouths while wearing braces.
To prevent wires from breaking or foods from getting stuck in these components, patients often refrain from eating certain foods throughout treatment. Specialized products and techniques were also necessary to properly clean the braces. Oral hygiene can be challenging due to the difficulty of cleaning around the braces. Good oral care is essential to reduce the risk of developing dental decay or gum disease as a result of the challenges associated with treatment.
ClearCorrect® is different. We can use this system to minimize the risk of developing dental decay due to challenges caused by crowded and otherwise misaligned teeth. These teeth are generally harder to clean properly. In addition, we resolve these risks and successfully realign the teeth in a way that does not pose new threats to the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth.
If we determine that ClearCorrect® is appropriate for you, a series of clear aligners will be provided to you. These aligners are made from transparent, smooth, and flexible advanced plastic. They are customized to fit your mouth comfortably and precisely. Slip them into your mouth and wear them all day and night, only removing them when eating and cleaning your mouth or the aligner itself. As a removable option, ClearCorrect® eliminates the challenges to diet and oral hygiene associated with conventional orthodontic treatments like braces. Also, cleaning the trays is easy and does not require special products and techniques.
Dr. Boardman will periodically check that treatment is progressing correctly and provide you with the next aligner in your series. It is essential to wear the aligners in the correct order because each tray or appliance corresponds with a different phase of treatment. The total treatment time depends on factors such as the nature and severity of your malocclusion (misalignment) and compliance.
