Correct Crooked Teeth with Clear Orthodontics
Do you have crooked teeth that are destroying your smile? Most of us have a few flaws in our smile that we’d like to change. But when it comes to orthodontics, patients often don’t want to deal with the hassle of traditional braces. If you need clear orthodontics in Westport, MA or Seekonk, MA, Perfect Smiles can provide elite and subtle orthodontic options that will fit into your lifestyle.
Many dental offices today are providing orthodontics, but we have an in-house orthodontist here to oversee your care. You don’t have to drive all around town for your treatment.
Today we want to tell you about two different services: clear ceramic orthodontics and ClearCorrect, an adult orthodontics system that uses clear aligners to move teeth into a better position.
Straightening your teeth is a big deal! Here’s what you can expect:
- Better-looking, straighter smile
- More confidence
- Reduced risk of tooth decay and gum disease
- Better functioning bite, meaning reduced risk of tooth chips or even breaks
Discover the Benefits of Clear Ceramic Braces
Traditional braces are considered the gold standard of orthodontic treatment. The treatment is predictable and reliable and can be used for a number of issues. This includes:
- Correcting alignment
- Fixing gapped teeth
- Balancing the bite
Of course, many adult patients have concerns about having brackets and wires on their teeth. They are afraid of looking like a preteen or having the treatment stick out like a sore thumb. That’s where clear ceramic braces come in. These braces look and function similar to traditional braces, but they are clear and less noticeable. For any of our orthodontic consultations, we’ll take impressions of your teeth and provide a mockup to show you the before and after. Once the braces are on, you’ll visit our office about once every six weeks for wire changes and checkups.
Why Patients Rave About ClearCorrect
Some patients don’t need extensive orthodontic treatment or simply don’t want to deal with braces at all. If you don’t need or want braces but still desire straight teeth, we have another option, ClearCorrect. This system does not use fixed appliances or brackets and wires. Instead, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat or clean your teeth. The best part is that the treatment is virtually invisible, so it’s possible no one will ever know you’re undergoing treatment.
ClearCorrect treatment generally takes about 12 to 18 months to complete, so not only is it more subtle, but it also doesn’t take as long. You can even take your aligners out for a couple of hours each day, but be sure to wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours to keep your treatment on course.
