If you're concerned with the alignment of your teeth and wish to address the issue without resorting to traditional metal orthodontics, ClearCorrect aligners provided by Finest City Dental could be a terrific choice. With this orthodontic option, your bite could be dramatically improved with the use of simple, removable clear aligners. These custom appliances fit comfortably and do not require you to follow any bothersome dietary restrictions. ClearCorrect aligners can be taken out immediately before you eat. This means that there's no need to worry about eating certain foods, which is not the case when wearing traditional braces. To find out more about ClearCorrect, along with other clear aligner orthodontic choices offered at our office, schedule an appointment with general dentist Dr. Nick Dovey at his practice in San Diego, CA.
You may be a good candidate for ClearCorrect if your teeth are crowded, crooked, misaligned, or if you have a dental malocclusion (poor bite). This clear aligner option is particularly effective for those who have a serious overbite, rotated teeth, or even excess gaps in your teeth. There are lots of treatments to enhance the spacing, alignment, and bite; however, ClearCorrect has additional benefits. The clear aligners make it hard for other people to see that you're wearing orthodontics. They're also removable so they can be taken out whenever you want to clean your teeth and eat. They can also be removed for special events. In contrast to Invisalign (a comparable method of removable teeth aligners), ClearCorrect is created in the U.S.A. and is normally less costly. When you visit our office to attend your consultation, Dr. Dovey will explain all of your orthodontic choices and answer all of your questions to decide which selection is ideal for your needs.
What to Expect
When you select ClearCorrect, Dr. Dovey will take x-rays of your jaw and teeth, as well as impressions that will be utilized to create your aligners. After we receive your aligners from the dental lab, a staff member will call you to schedule an appointment. You should expect to make appointments every few weeks. During these sessions, Dr. Dovey will assess your progress and give you new aligners as your teeth move. In the event you damage or lose an aligner, simply call our office so we can have a new aligner created. This will make it possible for you to keep going on with treatment without having to wait for your next appointment. Based on the condition of your teeth and the total amount of correction required, your prescribed ClearCorrect treatment may take 12 – 24 months (about eight stages of therapy).
Dr. Dovey will schedule you for routine appointments to monitor your progress and update your ClearCorrect program as needed. It's extremely important for you to keep your teeth and your aligners clean so you don't develop tooth decay. Flossing, brushing your teeth, and rinsing with mouthwash every time you remove the aligners is a fantastic habit to adopt. You should also clean or rinse the aligners before placing them back into your mouth. It's also advisable to keep your aligners inside their protective case while eating to avoid losing them.
As soon as your treatment is completed, you might have to wear a retainer to help keep your teeth from going back to their initial place. You should continue to schedule your yearly dental examinations at Finest City Dental so Dr. Dovey can check up on your teeth, alignment, and overall dental health.
Dr. Dovey will discuss price quotes during your consultation. He will also go over the various payments we take, such as medical financing. If you have dental insurance, a team member can contact your insurer to ascertain your benefits and determine your out-of-pocket expenses.
