ClearCorrect Aligners in Saint Paul
Everyone wants to have straight, beautiful teeth when they laugh, socialize with friends or business partners, or pose for photos. At Highgrove Dental Care, we offer an innovative orthodontic system called ClearCorrect in St. Paul, MN. These aligners act as invisible, removable braces our patients can use to gradually move their teeth into the desired position.
How Straight Teeth Can Improve Your Oral Health
Crooked or misaligned teeth can make a person feel embarrassed and self-conscious, but they can also threaten one's oral health. If teeth do not align properly, it can create what is called malocclusion.
The percentage of American adults that are expected to have malocclusion is as high as 75 percent. If left untreated, uneven bites and malocclusions can increase the risk of enamel wear, chips and breaks, cavities, gum disease, and more. Fortunately, ClearCorrect can realign your teeth and ultimately result in a healthier mouth.
How Does ClearCorrect Work?
ClearCorrect is a series of clear, plastic aligners patients for a predetermined length of time. ClearCorrect fixes the following orthodontic issues:
- Bite misalignment, including overbite, underbite, and crossbite
- Crooked, overlapping, and twisted teeth
- Uneven spacing between teeth and gaps
Patients can remove their aligners to eat and clean their teeth, and we advise patients to wear their aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day for optimal results. Because you can easily remove the aligners, patients can enjoy their favorite meals and practice hassle-free oral hygiene.
The smooth and snug aligners do not slip or move, nor do they irritate the mouth's soft tissues like metal wires and brackets often do.
Every two weeks, you wear the next aligner in the sequence until you complete your treatment. Over time, you will notice your teeth moving into a straighter, more desirable position. When you finish treatment, Dr. Jadilyn Grittner or Dr. John Grittner will create a custom retainer to maintain your newly aligned smile.
Is ClearCorrect in St. Paul Right for You?
First, you need to schedule a consultation with your St. Paul dentist. During this appointment, either Dr. John Grittner or Dr. Jadilyn Nguyen Grittner will talk with you about your smile goals, oral health needs, and expectations. We will also discuss the cost and treatment timeline, ranging from several months to two years, depending on your needs. Your dentist then examines your teeth and takes comprehensive digital x-rays.
If ClearCorrect can help you achieve your smile goals, we take digital impressions of your mouth. Every patient has unique teeth, and digital impressions map the contours of your mouth and dentition. We then send the scans to a ClearCorrect laboratory, where a specialist fabricates your clear, customized aligners.
Drs. Grittner may recommend an alternative treatment to better fit your needs if ClearCorrect is not suitable for you. Ultimately, our goal is to develop a treatment plan that best suits your oral health profile and surpasses your aesthetic expectations. With our help, your best smile is within reach!
