Good Candidates for Treatment

Is ClearCorrect Right For Me?

ClearCorrect is a great option for some patients, but it’s not right for everyone. Clear plastic aligners like ClearCorrect are typically only recommended to those who have minor to moderate orthodontic issues. For example, ClearCorrect may be right for you if you have issues like slightly crooked or crowded teeth, gaps in your smile, or a minor bite alignment issue.ClearCorrect may not be effective for those who have major orthodontic problems like extremely crooked/rotated teeth, or major bite/jaw alignment issues like a serious overbite or crossbite. For these kinds of complex orthodontic issues, braces are usually a much better option.

Understanding the Process

What to Expect from ClearCorrect

The process will begin with a comprehensive orthodontic consultation with Dr. Peralta at Rio Vista Family Dentistry & Orthodontics. At your appointment, she will determine if you are a good candidate and work with you to determine your orthodontic goals. Next, she will take impressions, x-rays, and images of your mouth. She will work with ClearCorrect to develop your treatment plan and create your first sets of aligners.After about 4 weeks, you’ll come in and get your first several sets of aligners. It is important to  wear them for 20-22+ hours per day, usually for about 2 weeks per set. You will come in for a quick checkup and to get your next several sets of aligners about every 4-6 weeks, depending on your treatment plan.

Treatment Time

How Long Does ClearCorrect Take?

Each aligner is worn for about 2 weeks, and most patients need between 20-24 sets of aligners to correct their smile, so the average treatment time is under a year. This can vary depending on each patient’s individual needs. Patients with minor orthodontic issues could finish treatment more quickly, while those with more serious alignment problems may need a longer treatment time. Dr. Peralta will discuss your expected treatment time during your initial consultation so you know what to expect.

Ensure Optimal Results

Get the Most out of ClearCorrect

The most effective way to get quick, beautiful results is to follow Dr. Peralta’s instructions exactly during your treatment, and to wear your aligners for at least 20 hours per day. If you fail to wear your aligners diligently, your treatment will fall behind, costing you both time and money. Ideally, you should only remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss to keep your treatment on track.
