ClearCorrect FAQs

Do ClearCorrect aligners hurt?

Many individuals find traditional braces uncomfortable due to metal wires or brackets rubbing against the inside of their mouth, and the periodic adjustments that need to be made to the metal components. However, ClearCorrect offers a different, more pleasant experience for individuals who want to achieve a straighter smile. The aligners are customized to fit your smile without any wires or brackets, and the tooth movement is gradual, resulting in a more comfortable wearing experience compared to traditional braces.

How do I keep my aligners clean?

Maintaining the cleanliness of your aligners is essential for optimal oral health. Remove them in the morning and at night to brush and floss your teeth, then clean the aligners using cool water and a soft toothbrush. Also be sure to rinse your mouth after meals before reinserting the aligners.

What should I expect during treatment?

Plan to wear your trays for approximately 22 hours a day and adhere to the recommended schedule for changing them. This consistency is essential to prevent any delays in your treatment. You should only remove your ClearCorrect aligners when eating and during brushing and flossing.

What are ClearCorrect aligners made of?

ClearCorrect aligners are made of BPA-free plastic that is molded to fit your teeth. This firm texture provides the necessary support to gently guide your teeth into the intended position. With proper cleaning, ClearCorrect aligners are virtually invisible over your smile.

Are there any dietary restrictions that come with using ClearCorrect aligners?

During ClearCorrect treatment, there are no dietary restrictions as the aligners can easily be removed for every meal. However, it is essential to avoid wearing the aligners while consuming anything besides water, as this can increase the risk of tooth decay. Always rinse your mouth before reinserting the aligners and follow the recommended brushing and flossing routine.

What is the cost of treatment?

The cost of clear aligner treatment is based on the degree of correction required. Dr. Rader can provide a timeline estimate and a treatment plan with a price quote during your consultation.
