If you have long wanted to have your smile straightened, but do not want to be seen wearing metal wires and brackets on your teeth, you should visit us at our dental practice, Julie Elessawi, DDS. Our expert dentist in Shrewsbury, Dr. Julie Elessawi, can provide you with ClearCorrect braces.
ClearCorrect uses clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth instead of traditional metal wires and brackets. This means that you can have your teeth straightened without anyone even knowing that you are receiving orthodontic treatment. Patients are able to attend work, school, and social gatherings without needing to worry that they will be embarrassed by being seen wearing braces. ClearCorrect has proven to be an extremely effective orthodontic treatment option for both adults and teens. Once it is determined that your bite problem can be corrected with ClearCorrect braces, 3-D computer imaging technology will be used to create your individualized series of aligners. Each aligner is worn for about three weeks, and will be removed while you eat or drink, or brush and floss your teeth. This means that you will be able to eat anything you want during the entire treatment period. Each aligner will slowly move your teeth into position for the next aligner in the series. Once you have finished wearing the last aligner in the series, you will have your beautiful new smile, and all your teeth will be in their correct, final positions. You will only need to visit our dentist about once every six weeks during treatment. Our dentist in Shrewsbury will make sure that your treatment with ClearCorrect is progressing as planned. The average time for treatment with ClearCorrect braces is between nine and fifteen months. The average set of aligners has anywhere between 18 and 30 aligners in it, but will vary depending on your individual bite situation.
