Want straight teeth without metal mouth? Talk to your dentist in Fort Lauderdale about clear braces

A good first impression starts with a smile! If you are not entirely happy with your smile, but can not bear the thought of metal braces, your Fort Lauderdale cosmetic dentist suggests clear aligners (e.g. ClearCorrect, Invisalign, Smart Moves) might be just the solution for you.  While the cosmetic benefits of straighter teeth are clear, straight teeth are healthier too!  Poorly-aligned teeth can interfere with bite function, can wear down faster, and are more prone to cavities.  

Recent years have seen many advances in orthodontics including the use of clear aligners. Rather than the old style metal bracket and wire braces, ClearCorrect uses a series of clear aligners to move your teeth into proper occlusion. Each aligner is custom made for you of clear, comfortable plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. Treatment begins by visiting your Fort Lauderdale dentist, who takes an impression of your teeth, perscribes how your teeth need to move, and sends your perscription to the lab.  A series of clear aligners are made starting with the current position of your teeth and slowly moving them until they are perfectly straight.  You will wear each aligners for 22 hours per day for between four to six weeks before replacing your aligner with the next in the series. Each set of aligners place gentle pressure on specific teeth to gradually move your teeth into perfect alignment. It's that easy!

The benefits of ClearCorrect aligners are numerous:

  1. No dietary restricitons. With traditional braces, there are many foods that are restricted as they could damage the wires and brackets (e.g. apples, popcorn, nuts, corn on the cob, etc)
  2. Discreet. Unlike the metal and brackets of traditional braces, the clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible. 
  3. Convenient. Because the aligners are removable, you can remove them to eat, drink and brush your teeth. They can also be removed for business meetings, a romantic date, or  while playing sports which require a mouth guard.
  4. Easy. Again, because the aligners are removable, brushing and flossing is easier than with traditional braces which can trap food and get in the way when you floss. No additional tools are required for cleaning your teeth. Even the dental visits are easier; no more removing and replacing wires and bands. You simply change to the next series of aligners!
  5. Comfort. Clear aligners are more comfortable than metal brackets and wires which can produces sores and discomfort.
