What Is ClearCorrect?

ClearCorrect invisible braces have no brackets or wires like traditional braces. Instead, ClearCorrect uses a series of clear aligners, like retainers, that gently move your teeth. About every three weeks, you’ll begin wearing a new aligner until your treatment is complete. Most patents complete treatment in as little as six months to two years.

Important Considerations

Maintaining good dental health is generally easier with ClearCorrect than with traditional braces, since you can remove the aligners when eating or brushing your teeth. To work properly, however, compliance is key. The aligners must be worn as much as possible – about 22 hours a day. Compliance isn’t an issue with braces, since they can’t be removed. For this reason, I generally don’t recommend ClearCorrect for kids.

Patients frequently want to know whether their insurance will cover ClearCorrect. Some insurance plans do cover ClearCorrect, though it will depend on your specific situation. If your treatment is primarily cosmetic, insurance is less likely to cover the cost of the aligners.

Another concern patients frequently have is whether ClearCorrect will hurt. Just like with braces, there will be some soreness when adjusting to a new aligner. This soreness generally doesn’t last long.
