Treatment with Clear Braces in Boulder, CO
ClearCorrect uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners to straighten the smile gradually. To create the aligners, Dr. Barone takes digital images to create a 3-D model of the smile. The computer software then generates models of the progression of the teeth over time. Once the aligners are complete, Dr. Barone will provide patients with their first set. Patients will replace their aligners with a subsequent pair every two weeks until they complete treatment.
Patients only need to remove their aligners to brush, floss, and eat. It is important to keep the aligners clean. After every meal, patients should brush and rinse their aligners. Cleaning the aligners at least once a day by soaking them in a denture cleaner or brushing them will keep the trays clear. This hygiene routine also removes bacteria and plaque that can cause problems like gum disease and tooth decay.
Clear Braces FAQs
Do you want to know more about clear braces? Read answers to these frequently asked questions:
Am I a candidate for ClearCorrect?
Patients with mild or moderate orthodontic problems benefit from ClearCorrect. We also recommend ClearCorrect for adults with healthy teeth and gums. ClearCorrect is best for patients who require less complicated tooth movements. Patients with severe overcrowding, underbite, overbite, or crossbite will benefit from metal braces.
Do I need to wear ClearCorrect aligners during sleep?
Patients must wear their aligners for the most effective treatment for 20 to 22 hours daily, which means they will have to wear their aligners during sleep. Wearing the aligners for the allotted time will help treamtnet progress promptly.
Are clear braces painful?
Although it may take a day or two for patients to get used to each new pair of aligners, patients should not feel any pain. While they will not feel pain, they may feel some soreness. Patients should never use force to put their aligners on their teeth. We will show patients how to push the trays gently in their mouth with fingertips.
