Is there really such a thing as clear braces?
Yes! With more adults looking to improve the alignment of their teeth, more options are available that are discreet and easy to use. Braces that use metal brackets and wires to move your teeth are often not a reasonable or practical choice – especially for those who frequently meet with clients or need to speak in front of others. They can detract from your professional appearance and make you feel self-conscious, like you've somehow stepped back in time to middle school!
At Midnight Sun Dental Center, we are proud to offer ClearCorrect, a plastic aligner system that is virtually invisible when it's in place over your teeth. These clear aligners are worn throughout the day and gently guide your teeth into their proper positions. You remove the aligners to eat and to brush your teeth, so many of the hassles of traditional bracket-and-wire braces are eliminated. The system is easy to use and appropriate for most tooth alignment issues.
ClearCorrect works well for most of the issues that we come across, but some people do need more intensive orthodontic treatment. Call our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Woodring so that he can take a look at your teeth and determine whether ClearCorrect is the right choice for you.
