Invisalign and Clear Correct Overview
Adults and older teens may want or need to have their teeth straightened in order to improve their oral health, and yet the idea of braces prevents them from taking necessary steps. After all, the unsightly wires and brackets are visually unappealing and they are very difficult and uncomfortable to wear. This is why we at Boss Dental Care in Corpus Christi, TX happily offer our patients Invisalign and Clear Correct treatments instead.
Many of our patients are familiar with the first treatment, but not the second. The good news is that Invisalign and Clear Correct are very similar; both are clear aligners that remain relatively invisible to the naked eye. Both work in the same way – using a changing set of customized dental trays or aligners that very slowly, and discreetly, move your teeth into an ideal and proper alignment.
- They both share the same benefits:
- They are worn round the clock but are easily removed for eating, drinking and properly cleaning your teeth and gums.
- They are designed specifically for your needs and use non-metal materials to remain safe and comfortable at all times. No wires or irritation occurs!
- They are changed roughly every two to four weeks, making them far more comfortable than braces that are painfully adjusted, and which leave the gums very sore for days afterward
As your preferred dentist in Corpus Christi, we can work with you to decide if you are a good candidate for clear braces like the Invisalign and Clear Correct solutions. Generally, most people with a need for moderate alignment will qualify for this approach to teeth straightening, and then they can choose between Invisalign and Clear Correct based on their needs.
What sort of differences are there between the Invisalign and Clear Correct solutions? Essentially, it boils down to two factors. The Clear Correct are less expensive and American made, while Invisalign is an older firm that has a global manufacturing process and is a bit more costly. Which is best for you? That is something that you can decide based on your budget and your preferences in terms of domestic versus foreign products.
