When you think of braces, you may cringe at the thought of a full mouth of metal brackets and wires, complete with Willy Wonka headgear, that have to be worn for several years. But today, modern orthodontics has expanded to include a variety of options for patients of every age. If you’re a busy adult with little time and patience for orthodontic treatment, but you still want a straighter smile, we have good news for you–there are discreet straightening options for adults that are safe and effective.
Teeth Misalignment in Adults
Having misaligned, overcrowded, and crooked teeth isn’t just a cosmetic issue; they increase your risk of plaque buildup, enamel erosion, cracked teeth, and tooth sensitivity. Even if you had braces as a child, your teeth may have shifted and need straightening again. It’s worth pursuing this option for not only the appearance of your smile, but also for the overall health and lifespan of your teeth.
ClearCorrect® Aligner Therapy
At Cary Family Dental, we offer an innovative and discreet solution to traditional braces, perfect for busy adults who can’t take the time to properly clean and care for metal braces. ClearCorrect is a simple straightening option using a series of clear trays that are perfectly fitted to your teeth. You’ll need to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day for maximum effectiveness and visit us every six weeks so that we can ensure that your teeth are straightening nicely. At your appointment, you’ll receive a new tray that will further correct your misalignment issues. Unlike traditional braces, these trays are removed when eating, drinking anything other than water, and when brushing and flossing your teeth. Additionally, they are inconspicuous and clear so people can still see your natural teeth. Many people won’t even notice you’re wearing them!
