Correcting crooked or misaligned teeth was a cumbersome, embarrassing, and very long process involving some of the ugliest oral appliances in dental history. Thankfully, dental technology has found a new way to help you straighten your smile. Dr. Rekha Mahajan and her team at Mahajan Dentistry can help you find the best solution for teeth straightening.
ClearCorrect is one of many revolutionary aligner therapies for patients suffering from mild to moderate teeth misalignment issues. Gone are those ugly metal brackets glued to your teeth and torturous metal wires that connected them. With ClearCorrect, you’ll instead use special clear aligner trays. These trays are put on and taken off by patients anytime, anywhere. Dr. Mahajan may recommend you wear them for at least 22 hours daily. But they can easily be removed for eating or cleaning your teeth. Each patient receives a series of trays custom-made for them. Patients can see results much faster by sticking to proper compliance than traditional orthodontics.
While ClearCorrect aligners are an outstanding alternative to traditional orthodontics, they are not suitable for everyone. Potential candidates for the ClearCorrect treatment must first undergo a thorough evaluation by Dr. Mahajan to learn if this treatment is right for them. Those ideal candidates for ClearCorrect aligners are teens and adults with mild to moderate issues related to biting and teeth misalignment. These patients will also have to fully understand how essential it will be to comply with Dr. Mahajan’s instructions to achieve the very best results. During the consultation, Dr. Mahajan may also give her patients a preview of possible outcomes by showing just how their smiles could look after ClearCorrect therapy. Patients who decide to proceed with treatment will first undergo several impressions and pictures to create the best-fitting aligners. Finally, the information is sent to the ClearCorrect lab, where they will develop a series of custom-made trays.
