Transparent orthodontic devices called aligners are becoming increasingly popular with people looking to achieve a stunning smile. Aligners are a series of custom mouthpieces that fit over teeth and guide them into the right position.
There are several different brands of in-office clear aligner trays on the market today, including ClearCorrect and Invisalign®. Here are a few factors that distinguish ClearCorrect from the competition:
- Cost: The ClearCorrect company has lower lab fees than its competitors. The cost of things such as refinements, revisions, and replacements is also lower than their competitors. For patients, these factors often translate to a lower-priced treatment.
- Comfort: Aligners cause unnecessary discomfort if they change too much between steps. The ClearCorrect system achieves harmony between patient comfort and treatment time. In most cases, no individual tooth is moved more than 0.3mm per step, and a two-week wear time is recommended for each aligner to allow for total adjustment.
- Compliance: You may think that you wear your aligners enough when the opposite is true. Fortunately, ClearCorrect treatment plans have a unique feature called Compliance Checkpoints. Dr. John Schmid will be able to verify whether you (or your child) are wearing your aligners as often as you should.
- Clarity: The clarity of plastic used for ClearCorrect aligners is roughly equivalent to the competition. ClearCorrect aligners have fewer visible marks than other aligners because of unique manufacturing techniques. People will rarely notice that you are wearing them.
Here’s an interesting fact: Unlike Invisalign®, ClearCorrect was founded by doctors, for doctors!
Is ClearCorrect Better Than Invisalign®?
ClearCorrect invisible aligners are similar to Invisalign® in many ways. But the factors listed above may make them a better choice for some patients, particularly those who are cost-conscious.
ClearCorrect is also a great option for people who may have been interested in at-home or direct-to-consumer aligner brands but who don’t want to sacrifice effectiveness and individualized dental care. An in-person consultation is necessary to determine your candidacy for ClearCorrect.
