Braces work.

That’s why they have been used for so long by so many people.

But they aren’t the only way you can straighten your teeth. At a modern dental practice like Davenport Dental Group, we may have a “clearer” solution to straighten your smile.

ClearCorrect is part of the next generation of orthodontic care. We offer it at both of our dentist offices. If you would like to learn more about it, call 956-242-6745 (Junction Drive location) or 956-517-2695 (Winfield location) or fill out our online form to schedule a consultation with our dentists serving Laredo, TX, and the surrounding area.

Until then, we would like to share some of the reasons so many patients prefer ClearCorrect to change their smiles.

Comparing ClearCorrect With Braces

It’s worth repeating that braces have been around for so long simply because they work. They can correct a number of problems that you may have with your teeth.

So, what can ClearCorrect do? Here are some of the problems it can fix:

◙ Crooked teeth

◙ Crossbites

◙ Crowded teeth

◙ Gaps between teeth

◙ Open bites

◙ Overbites

◙ Underbites

ClearCorrect won’t work for everyone. In general, it’s better for patients with mild to moderate alignment issues. Even so, lots of patients fall into this category, and many consider ClearCorrect to be a better way to create their beautiful new smiles.

Contrasting ClearCorrect And Braces

Above, we discussed similarities between traditional metal braces and ClearCorrect. Now, we want to focus on the reasons you might prefer ClearCorrect for your orthodontic treatment.

Whether you are an adult interested in orthodontic care or the parent of a teen about to start straightening his or her teeth, you may appreciate what ClearCorrect has to offer.

They Are Called ClearCorrect For A Reason

If you’ve ever known someone with braces, then you know braces can draw attention. Sometimes they can even be a distraction when talking to someone.

Knowing this, would you prefer to use something more discreet to change the shape of your smile?

As the name suggests, ClearCorrect aligners are clear — as in transparent. When your aligners are placed over your teeth, they have a way of blending in with your smile. As a result, few (if any) people will realize you are wearing them.

That can make it more comfortable to use your aligners on a daily basis. It also can help you feel more relaxed during a job interview, a meeting for work, or a date.

ClearCorrect Is Smooth

Which would you rather wear on your teeth: a piece of sandpaper or a plastic mouthguard?

This isn’t a perfect analogy for wearing braces or wearing ClearCorrect, but it may feel that way to some people.

Braces can be irritating to the soft tissues of your mouth. The brackets may feel scratchy while you are wearing them. And if something happens, like a bracket comes loose or a wire breaks, that can feel even worse.

Every ClearCorrect aligner is custom-designed to fit over your teeth during each stage of your treatment. The aligners are made from a single piece of smooth plastic, so there aren’t any small pieces to irritate the inside of your mouth.

ClearCorrect Is Convenient

Try to imagine this situation. You’re having a day out with one of your best friends. When you start to get hungry, you stop to grab a bite to eat.

Your friend seems to be studying the menu in search of that perfect item, but you know the truth. Because he or she has braces, he or she has to find something that won’t push on the brackets or pull the wires. Nuts, chips, and chewy foods all could be problems for your friend. You recall that he or she had to skip the popcorn the last time you went to the movies.

Because you have ClearCorrect, you can simply remove your aligner during your meal. And that means you can order whatever you want.

All you have to do is remember to clean your teeth and your aligner after you are finished. Your friend has to do the same thing, but you aren’t jealous, especially after you saw the tools he or she has to use to floss.
