Clear braces, removable orthodontic trays, are a great alternative to traditional metal braces. ClearCorrect trays are custom made and fitted to gently realign the teeth using plastic trays that are molded to the upper or lower arch of the teeth. Every few weeks the orthodontist provides new trays until the treatment is complete.
Clear Correct clear braces are virtually invisible at a glance, making them a wonderful alternative option for patients who do not seek metal braces. Your orthodontist will start by taking molds of your bite, and then creates a series of plastic removable trays that fit over the teeth. As treatment progresses, your orthodontist provides new trays each week to gently guide the teeth into alignment. The trays are to be worn at all times, and are removable for activities such as brushing, flossing, eating or drinking. Clear Correct trays are similar to Invisaline and other clear orthodontic treatments.
There are distinct differences in clear braces versus traditional metal braces, depending on the case and patients’ preference. Keep in mind that not every patient is eligible for clear braces- your orthodontist will evaluate your particular case and make a treatment recommendation for your individual health.
