ClearCorrect Teeth Straighteners and Aligners

If you’re looking to straighten crooked teeth, Lupine Dental offers patients clear plastic aligner trays through ClearCorrect. This is a removable, almost invisible way to get straighter teeth without the inconvenience and discomfort of traditional metal braces.

Who can use ClearCorrect?

Adults and teenagers with no remaining baby teeth can be candidates for ClearCorrect teeth straighteners. These aligners can help correct the following dental issues:

  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Gaps between teeth (diastema)

Please note that while ClearCorrect aligners can be a great solution for mild to moderate cases, more serious issues may require traditional braces or dental surgery. Your dentist will be able to assess your eligibility for ClearCorrect in-office aligners with a simple consultation.

How does ClearCorrect straighten teeth?

ClearCorrect aligners are thin but strong polyurethane trays, created specifically for your dental issue. They work by guiding the teeth into the correct position by applying gentle force over controlled single tooth movements. You will visit your dentist on a regular schedule to check progress and get new trays. Depending on the complexity of your issue, the treatment can take anywhere from 4 to 18 months.

Why choose aligners over traditional braces to straighten teeth?

The clue is in the name here. ClearCorrect aligners are virtually invisible meaning that your teeth are being straightened without the metal wires and brackets of traditional braces. Other advantages over braces are:

  • ClearCorrect trays are removable, making it easy to eat and drink whatever you like.
  • You can still care for your teeth by brushing and flossing normally.
  • Compared with braces, ClearCorrect aligners are more comfortable to wear.
  • Being clear, the aligner trays are barely noticeable and won’t make you feel self-conscious.

ClearCorrect is a safe and effective way to straighten your teeth. Contact Lupine Dental at our Palmer, AK office today to see if you are a good candidate for these discrete aligners.
