ClearCorrect Invisible – Springfield, MO

Feel More Confident with Clear Braces

Straight, beautiful teeth are among the most fundamental components of a radiant, attractive smile. For many teens and adults, the benefits of perfectly aligned teeth seem out of reach; traditional metal braces simply don’t appeal to everyone, and the thought of undergoing orthodontic treatment to correct misalignment is an unpleasant one at best. Fortunately, Dr. Olson does offer a solution that helps you achieve straight teeth and a more confident smile without the need for brackets and metal wires: ClearCorrect invisible aligners.

How Does ClearCorrect Work? 

In order to determine if ClearCorrect is the right orthodontic solution for your unique needs, Dr. Olson will first evaluate your teeth and discuss your options with you in detail. An impression will be taken of your dentition and sent to ClearCorrect’s lab so that your aligners can be custom-made using advanced 3D printing technology. Your aligners will be sent to our office where you’ll pick them up and begin wearing them right away, putting you on the path to a straighter, healthier smile. 

You’ll wear your ClearCorrect custom aligners throughout the day and night, removing them when you eat, drink, or brush and floss your teeth. Because they’re virtually invisible and completely comfortable, no one will be able to tell that you’re wearing them and they won’t affect your daily life. As you move through each phase of your aligners, you’ll notice the gradual change as your teeth are gently shifted into their proper position. By the time your treatment is complete, you’ll be enjoying a flawless new smile that you’ll love showing off with confidence. 

Clear Braces FAQs

Dr. Olson and his team will be glad to answer any questions you might have about orthodontic treatment with ClearCorrect. But for a quick reference, here are some of the most frequently asked questions.

What Is Clear Correct?

Clear Correct is an orthodontic treatment system that uses a series of clear aligners to gently move teeth into straighter positioning. These braces can be used to treat a number of malocclusions including crooked or overcrowded teeth, crossbites, overbites and underbites.

Your dentist in Springfield will determine if you are a good candidate for adult orthodontics. Dr. Olson will consider your occlusion, as well as your dental and oral health history.

What Are the Benefits?

The most obvious benefit will be what you don’t see. ClearCorrect is far less noticeable than traditional metal braces. Sure, you can see them at close range, but otherwise you’ll be able to confidently engage in your normal social and professional appointments.

ClearCorrect braces are removable, too, so you’ll be able to eat whatever you like. Just take off your braces at mealtime and enjoy all the foods you normally eat. Similarly, you’ll be able to maintain your regular oral hygiene routine. Brushing and flossing can be more difficult with metal brackets and wires attached to your teeth. ClearCorrect allows you to brush and floss as usual, thereby avoiding any greater risk of decay or gum disease.

How Does ClearCorrect Compare to Metal Braces?

Aside from the fact that they are far less noticeable, they are also far more comfortable. ClearCorrect aligners are made of smooth BPA-free plastic. You’ll never have to deal with a bracket irritating your gum tissue or a wire poking your cheek.

How Long Does Treatment Take with ClearCorrect?

Your orthodontic needs are different than any other patient Dr. Olson sees. Therefore, treatment times are dependent on the correction your smile requires. Generally speaking, however, most patients have straight smiles within two years of starting to wear ClearCorrect aligners.

ClearCorrect offers three treatment options:

  • Unlimited—receive as many aligners as necessary to complete treatment
  • Limited 12—Patients receive 12 sets of aligners
  • Limited 6—Patients receive 6 sets of aligners

Dr. Olson will be able to advise you on the best treatment schedule for your orthodontic case.
