The truth is, a large percentage of the world’s population isn’t born with perfectly straight teeth and a proper bite. If you have malocclusion (misalignment of your upper and lower teeth), crooked teeth, gapping, or overcrowding, you’re not alone. You might think because of its commonality, it’s little more than a cosmetic issue, but unfortunately, an improper bite and crooked teeth can cause problems for your TMJ and oral hygiene routines. Luckily, you don’t have to stick with the bite you were born with, and advancements in orthodontics offer more comfortable and discreet straightening solutions than ever before!
ClearCorrect is a straightening system that implements virtually invisible aligners to work their magic on your teeth’s alignment. Gone are the days of obvious, uncomfortable, and inconvenient metal braces. While the discretion of your ClearCorrect aligners is a huge advantage, the added benefit of them being removable might be your favorite feature of this orthodontic treatment. You’ll need to wear each set of aligners for at least 22 hours per day, but being able to remove them while you eat means you don’t have to restrict your diet to soft foods, and you can conduct your oral hygiene routine unencumbered by brackets and wires!
If you’re wondering whether you’re a candidate for ClearCorrect, a consultation with Dr. Vogler can answer the question! If the answer is yes, Dr. Vogler and the team at A Smile by Design will take photos, x-rays, and impressions to capture the exact shape and position of your teeth to create an exact prescription for your ClearCorrect straighteners. A series of custom aligners will be made just for you to gently apply pressure on the teeth that need to change position. You will follow up with Dr. Vogler every 4-6 weeks to monitor progress and receive your new set of aligners.
The Invisalign system is nearly identical to ClearCorrect, but was the first clear aligner system to enter the market. Invisalign has straightened the smiles of over 5 million people worldwide, and they continue to improve their system. Through research and innovation, they’ve been able to make their clear aligners fit even more comfortably, treat a wider variety of cases, and find ways to cut treatment times in half!
Consulting with Dr. Vogler is the best way to find out if Invisalign can help you obtain a smile you’re proud to share with the world. If you are a candidate, your treatment plan will be mapped out by Dr. Vogler and the experts at Invisalign. This treatment plan will predict the movements of each tooth and the length of time you’ll need to wear the clear aligners. The best part is seeing a preview of your new smile, because seeing is believing!
Treatment with Invisalign has been able to correct the following types of malocclusion and misalignment:
