Straighten Your Teeth with Clear Aligners

Crooked teeth affect more than just smile aesthetics. Over time, misaligned teeth can lead to gum disease and tooth decay if left untreated. If you’ve been thinking about straitening your teeth but don’t want the hassle of traditional bracket-and-wire systems, clear braces are the solution you’ve been searching for! Clear braces are the latest, ground-breaking technology in orthodontics allowing patients the option of teeth straighteners that are discreet. Dr. Rick Brar is the leading orthodontist near you featuring clear braces through ClearCorrect. We understand that straightening your teeth with traditional metal braces can feel overwhelming and unappealing, but our clear braces offer an attractive alternative to our orthodontic patients.

What Are the Benefits of Clear Orthodontic Aligners?

Clear braces are discreet and removable unlike traditional braces, an option that’s ideal for patients who don’t want to draw attention to their orthodontia. Clear aligners are typically recommended for mild to moderate cases who are in good oral health. During your consultation with Dr. Brar, he will determine if you’re a candidate for clear aligners and create a customized treatment plan. Compared to traditional braces, orthodontic aligners provide many unique benefits for patients looking to correct crooked teeth:


Self Confidence

Thanks to their discreet look, clear braces don’t distract from your overall appearance. It is not uncommon for your aligners to go unnoticed while interacting with others due to their snug fit. Instead, you can go about your day without the worry of others noticing your teeth straighteners.


Eating is Easy

One of the biggest advantages of clear braces is their ability to be removed while eating. Eating with traditional braces can be challenging, especially since food tends to get stuck or can break your braces. When it’s time to eat, simply remove your aligners and enjoy your favorite foods. We recommend brushing before putting your aligners back on to ensure food isn’t trapped during wear.


Simpler Oral Hygiene

Keeping your teeth clean is one of the biggest challenges for patients with orthodontia. The ability to remove your aligners will help make hygiene easier. We encourage our patients to practice good oral hygiene and brush after meals to prevent infection or decay.


Less Discomfort

It’s not uncommon for patients to feel discomfort and irritation from the brackets and wires used in metal braces. Brackets and wires may dig into your cheeks and surrounding tissues, leading to pain and soreness. Clear braces eliminate the chances of such discomfort thanks to their snug fit around your teeth.


Straighten Misaligned Teeth in a Short Time

Every patient is unique, but treatment typically takes between 12 and 18 months to complete. Teeth straighteners should be worn around 22 hours a day to ensure effectiveness. Your clear braces are typically removed for eating and cleaning or can be removed for special occasions. However, we encourage our patients to wear them as often as they can so they can complete treatment and enjoy their new smile.

Our Simple and Easy Process

We use a series of ClearCorrect teeth straighteners to push crooked teeth into place. Dr. Brar will begin the process by taking an impression of your teeth to send to our lab. A series of aligners will be created and customized to your teeth and treatment plan. Your set of clear braces will be worn for a few weeks and switched out to a new set during your checkup appointments. ClearCorrect aligners allow us three options for treatment depending on your needs:

Our Personalized Clear Aligners Treatment

During your consultation, Dr. Brar will recommend the option best suited for your unique case. Treatment typically takes between 12 to 18 months with each set taking you closer and closer to your orthodontic goals. ClearCorrect aligners are similar to other options for clear braces; however, they offer two distinct advantages. These aligners extend over the gumline, allowing greater leverage and force. As a result, they don’t need engagers and tend to be less intrusive. The ability to customize treatment options allows ClearCorrect more affordability than other systems. We work with numerous insurance carriers and third-party financing services to make our orthodontics even more affordable for our patients.
