Adults and older teens who want straighter teeth don’t have to get metal braces anymore. Now, Dr. Mosby can help you achieve a beautifully aligned smile with ClearCorrect invisible braces in Kingwood. ClearCorrect offers a perfect alternative to the chunky metal brackets and wires of traditional orthodontics. In fact, ClearCorrect can often straighten your teeth in less time than braces, all while allowing you to eat whatever you like and maintain your normal brushing routine.
ClearCorrect invisible braces aren’t braces in the conventional sense. Instead of using a bracket on each tooth connected by an archwire, ClearCorrect uses clear aligner trays to move teeth into a more desirable position. ClearCorrect clear aligners are made of flexible, smooth acrylic for comfort and almost invisible orthodontic treatment you won’t mind smiling through.
Your ClearCorrect treatment begins with a consultation at our Kingwood dental office. Dr. Mosby will take impressions of your teeth and send them to ClearCorrect along with a written prescription for your aligners. ClearCorrect uses the impressions to create a 3-D model of your teeth. Following Dr. Mosby’s exact specifications, ClearCorrect creates a series of aligners for your treatment. Each aligner is created using cutting-edge 3-D printing technology to create your custom aligners with precision.
You’ll wear your ClearCorrect aligners all day, every day, except during meals or when brushing your teeth. ClearCorrect aligners are clear, so they are nearly invisible while you wear them, so you won’t mind wearing them to school or work. Each aligner moves your teeth quickly but comfortably into place. Aligner by aligner, you’ll see a difference in your smile as your teeth straighten right before your eyes.
Every 6-8 weeks, Dr. Mosby will have you return to our Kingwood dental office for maintenance. Unlike traditional braces, there won’t be any painful adjustments. We’ll simply check to make sure treatment is on track, and provide you with your next set of aligners.
