Clear Aligners Q & A

Do I need orthodontic care?

If you’d like to improve your smile, there’s really no reason not to. Dentistry at Greenway’s team meets with you during a one-on-one consultation to analyze your smile; from there, they discuss the best treatment options available to address your needs. Here are some of the most common reasons to seek orthodontic care:

  • Teeth crowding
  • Teeth spacing
  • Snaggletooth
  • Overbite
  • Open bite
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth

Besides cosmetic concerns, crooked or otherwise flawed teeth can also be harder to keep clean and care for, leading to an increased risk of dental problems. Seeking orthodontic care can deliver an improved smile and lessen your chances of tooth decay, gum disease, and bone loss.

Why should I choose clear aligners?

Clear aligners are an excellent orthodontic treatment option. Bulky metal braces draw unwanted attention to your smile and get food stuck in them. With clear, removable aligners, you can straighten and improve your teeth and still smile with confidence during treatment. Since they’re easily removable, you can eat and brush your teeth with no hassle.

For teens who are self-conscious about wearing braces at school, or for adults who feel like they should be past the point of needing braces and are embarrassed, clear aligners can be the answer to their prayers.

What type of clear aligners are available?

Dentistry at Greenway offers ClearCorrect®, an innovative orthodontic treatment system similar to Invisalign®. Once you and your dentist establish ClearCorrect as the right treatment option for you, they take impressions, photos, and X-rays of your teeth that ClearCorrect uses in manufacturing your custom aligners.

Once your custom aligners arrive, you need to wear them at least 22 hours a day for optimal results. The aligners apply controlled amounts of force that gradually shift your teeth into position. You can take them out when you brush your teeth and eat. Every few weeks, you receive new sets of aligners with minor adjustments. This ensures the planned movement of your teeth remains on schedule.  

Periodically, you need to come into the office for routine checkups to monitor your progress with ClearCorrect. These appointments are straightforward and routine.

How does ClearCorrect compare to Invisalign?

Dentistry at Greenway doesn’t offer Invisalign, but ClearCorrect is very similar and delivers results that are just as effective. As a matter of fact, the practice’s experts prefer it, which is why the office chose to be a certified provider of ClearCorrect instead of Invisalign.

ClearCorrect can treat a wide variety of issues that keep people from achieving their ideal smiles. Straighter teeth don't just look better; they work better too. Poorly aligned teeth can interfere with bite function, wear out quicker, and are more prone to cavities.
