The orthodontic services that we provide here are ClearCorrect clear aligners, which do a very good job of allowing people to straighten their teeth actually quicker than they can with wires and brackets. And they have multiple advantages over the wires. One is that you can take the clear plastic aligners out while you eat, which enables you to clean your teeth more thoroughly in between after each meal. They're also virtually invisible so you can carry out your everyday life without too many people noticing that you're wearing anything to straighten your teeth. And, as I mentioned previously, the results are usually quicker than they are with wire. So for most people, that's a huge advantage as well.
Most of our ClearCorrect patients are adults. We do some teenagers, but most of the patients that we see are going to be in the 30-, 40-, 50-year range, which is surprising to a lot of people because they assume that most people that get the orthodontics are going to be in their teens or their 20s. But anyone from the teen years above can achieve straighter teeth with ClearCorrect aligners.
- You can enjoy happy, healthy gums and lips that won’t be irritated by wires or brackets.
- You will take out your aligners when you need to – for cleaning, eating, or important events.
- You get to keep your orthodontic treatment a secret between you and your dentist – clear aligners are virtually unnoticeable to others!
- You’ll maintain a fresh, clean smile by removing your aligners to brush and floss your teeth. You’ll never have food caught in your braces!
Learn The Basics About Clear Aligners
Your smile deserves more than just a cheaper alternative to braces. We’ve chosen to offer these clear aligners because of their effectiveness, comfort, and subtlety.Dr. Matthew Davenport on Clear Correct Read Transcript
Clear Correct is a product that we offer here. It's a clear liner that can straighten teeth. It's an orthodontics option. What it does is, it's able to straighten your teeth without having to use wires and brackets, the traditional orthodontic therapy.
So a lot of patients find this as a better alternative because, you know, it's a little more aesthetic and they also have the ability to take it on and off and clean their teeth and brush their teeth when they need to and take it off to eat. So, it's a little bit easier for patients to use.
I've have several patients here that have really enjoyed it. They love the ability to clean their teeth instead of having to try and brush around brackets and wires. With that, sometimes with the brackets and wires, you know, you take them off, you have these straight teeth but you have all these stains on them now because it's, you know, you're not able to clean it well. So with this, you're able to keep your hygiene as tip-top as you can and at the same time able to straighten your teeth.
Recently had a patient who came in and didn't like her smile. She wasn't happy with it. You can even tell. She would kind of shy away from showing her teeth. We gave her a few options on how to fix that. But we felt the best way for her to fix it was to straighten them using Clear Correct. The treatments range from anywhere from 10 months to a year and a half to two years. But at the end of it, it's a really great result.
She was, this patient, specifically was very happy with the results. You could really tell that she improved her self-esteem and her self-confidence, and was a lot happier to show her smile and her new pretty teeth.
Removable aligners have been shown as effective in treating dental problems like crowding, gaps, underbites, overbites, and crooked teeth. At least one study has shown them correcting an issue of anterior crossbite, which is a case of top teeth resting behind bottom teeth.
Metal brackets and wires are known for poking and scratching the inside of your mouth. They also cause pain when tightened. But with removable clear aligners, there are no metal pieces to injure your mouth – only smooth, comfortable plastic – and no wires to tighten. When you change out your aligners, you will only ever feel a slight pressure.
Because the aligners are clear and fit snugly against your teeth, you can improve your smile invisibly. Skip the “brace face” nickname and go directly to a straight, beautiful smile. And when you’ve completed treatment, you can finish your smile boost with additional cosmetic dentistry procedures like professional teeth whitening, contouring, or bonding. You can even combine several procedures for a smile makeover!

Traditional metal braces typically take two or three years to work completely. They move your teeth slowly and bring inconvenient and often painful dental appointments with them. Many of our patients see the same results in around 12 months with clear aligners. That’s the same effectiveness without the discomfort, embarrassment, or nuisance – in half the time!
