What Is ClearCorrect?

Aligners are made of clear, strong medical grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. Aligners are clear and look similar to tooth-whitening trays, but are custom-made for a better fit while moving teeth. Some orthodontists and dentists have referred to them as “contact lenses for teeth.”

For years, orthodontists and dentists have used removable appliances for limited treatment. Today, with the application of computer technology and custom manufacturing, ClearCorrect treats a broader range of cases with greater precision.

ClearCorrect uses 3-D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan, from the initial position to the final desired positio,n from which a series of custom-made, clear “aligners” are produced. Each “aligner” moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then is replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.
