ClearCorrect™ in Caroline Springs
Orthodontic treatment has seen many positive developments in the recent decade. Gone are the days when the only option to straighten your teeth was traditional metal braces.
What is ClearCorrect?
We all know that having a beautiful smile is important, but it’s hard to feel confident when you have misaligned teeth.
If your teeth are have gaps, overcrowded, overlapping, or your bite doesn’t line up, it can have a tremendous effect on how you feel about yourself. It’s also tough to correct these issues with traditional braces because they are expensive, time-consuming, uncomfortable, and often unsightly.
Magical Smiles is pleased to provide ClearCorrect, a cheaper alternative to Invisalign. The ClearCorrect system is an advanced orthodontic system, which uses digital technologies to treat mild to severe misalignments. ClearCorrect invisible aligners help people achieve straighter teeth for a more confident look. In contrast to metal braces, ClearCorrect invisible aligners can be removed for eating and drinking while also allowing you to brush and floss your teeth without being concerned about metal wires getting in the way.
n crowding, the teeth overlap and twist because the jaw doesn’t have enough room to fit all of them. Food can become stuck due to the reduced space between teeth, and tartar and plaque can build up, leading to dental decay and gum disease. For some cases of crowding teeth, Invisalign may be an option, depending on its severity.
An overbite is when the upper teeth extend far beyond the lower teeth. Certain foods can be challenging to chew or bite if you have an overbite. Invisalign can align teeth, so they cover the bottom and top teeth when you close your mouth
In an underbite, the bottom teeth are in front of the top ones, and the cause is usually a prominent lower jaw that recedes. If you have an underbite, your teeth can wear out faster, and you may experience speech difficulties. With Invisalign, the lower teeth can be moved back to sit behind the front teeth naturally. Invisalign may be combined with braces in extreme cases, and some underbite cases cannot be treated with Invisalign.
When your upper teeth fit behind your lower teeth when your mouth is closed, a crossbite occurs. The problem can affect teeth at the front or the back of your mouth. With Invisalign, teeth can be moved into the correct position, and crossbites can be corrected.
Gaps In Teeth
Food may get caught in the gaps between your teeth, causing gum disease and pain. Although Invisalign can close gaps, there are limitations to how much space can be closed.
Open bites occur when the front upper and lower teeth slant outward, so they are not touching when the mouth is closed. It can be fixed with Invisalign by repositioning the upper and lower teeth to close correctly.

FAQs about ClearCorrect
The cost of treatment varies based on your unique requirements. Typically, ClearCorrect is less expensive than Invisalign. A full treatment is recommended to achieve the most satisfactory results and costs between $4,000 and $5,000. If you only have a minor problem like crowding or misaligned teeth, the Flex option is a better alternative and costs between $2,500 and $3,500.
ClearCorrect orthodontic treatment usually takes less time than conventional metal braces. The average treatment time is anywhere from 6-18 months, but you can expect to see results within a few weeks.
Each aligner exerts a specific amount of continuous pressure on certain teeth, gradually shifting them by no more than 0.3 mm. Once the first movement is complete, the aligner is removed and replaced with the next aligner. The process repeats itself until, after a few months, the teeth are gently brought back into perfect alignment. We’ll invite you to visit the clinic every six weeks or so to check on the progress you’re making and give you your next set of aligners.
The gentle pressure you’ll feel with each new set of ClearCorrect aligners isn’t as painful as the discomfort of metal braces. Furthermore, ClearCorrect aligners are polished to remove rough edges, ensuring that they do not cause further pain from mouth sores.
Adults and teenagers with mild to moderate tooth misalignment or crowding will benefit from this treatment. Unfortunately, ClearCorrect is not suitable for everyone. We’ll need to take a quick look at your teeth to see if you qualify. ClearCorrect may not be appropriate if you have active tooth decay, significant crowding, or gum disease.
Traditional braces may be a better option if your condition is more complicated. Alternatively, if you cannot commit at least 22 hours per day to wearing your aligners, they may not be the best option for you. We’ll be able to see if you’re a good candidate for ClearCorrect during your consultation appointment.
Among the alternatives to ClearCorrect are:
- Invisalign: Invisalign is another brand name for a set of custom aligners that cover your teeth and gradually move them into their proper place. They are less obvious than typical metal braces because they are clear and can be taken on and off. They are, however, more expensive than ClearCorrect.
- Lingual Braces: For those who are mainly concerned with appearance, lingual braces are a great alternative to ClearCorrect because they are hidden behind the teeth and are not visible when you smile. Lingual braces can be made from metal, ceramic, clear, or a combination of these materials.
- Traditional Metal Braces: ClearCorrect is undoubtedly a desirable treatment option for some people because of its aesthetic appeal, but traditional metal braces may be a better alternative in severe cases. In traditional braces, brackets are affixed to each tooth, and a wire is used to attach them.
Patients must first visit a qualified ClearCorrect provider, like Magical Smiles, to begin the treatment process. This aligner treatment is not available online, and you need to see a licensed dentist in person.
Your speech may be affected temporarily by the aligners. However, most people adjust to wearing the aligners quickly. It is uncommon for your speech to be hampered for an extended period.
