ClearCorrect is a discreet and comfortable way to straighten the teeth of a patient. A 3D clear plastic aligner is custom made to fit the teeth. This aligner is thin and nearly invisible yet strong and resilient to maintain its shape. It is similar to a retainer and slowly shifts the teeth. Every few weeks another aligner is made and placed on the teeth to shift them closer to the desired final results. After wearing a series of aligners determined by the dentist, the patient will have straighter teeth without having to wear traditional braces.

ClearCorrect is useful for patients with overcrowded teeth, spaces between the teeth, rotated teeth, underbites and overbites. Patients who have previously had braces and whose teeth shifted after their treatment are also good candidates for ClearCorrect.

The price of ClearCorrect depends on the number of teeth included in the retainer, the number of retainers needed, and the length of the treatment and the area of the country where it is performed. ClearCorrect treatment varies anywhere from $2500-$6000.

Even though ClearCorrect retainers can be removed as desired by the patient, they should be worn for 22 hours for the designated length of the treatment. As long as the patient follows the treatment plan and also practices proper oral hygiene after the treatment is over, the final results should last a lifetime.
