A confident smile is a key part of making a positive first impression, but it can be hard to feel confident when you have crooked or overcrowded teeth. Fortunately, ClearCorrect clear braces in Windsor offer a subtle and comfortable way to straighten almost any smile – without the unsightly metal brackets and wires of traditional braces. With ClearCorrect, custom-made plastic aligners do all of the work of straightening your smile – however, you can still help ensure treatment proceeds without delay by following these few simple tips.
How Does ClearCorrect Treatment Work?
ClearCorrect uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to gradually move teeth into the desired position. The comfortable aligners apply just the right amount of pressure to gently correct common dental imperfections, such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Mild overbites or underbites
Treatment time varies depending on each individual’s unique dental needs. However, following the simple tips below can help ensure speedy treatment completion.
Tip 1: Wear Your Aligners as Directed
The easiest way to slow down ClearCorrect treatment is to not wear the aligners as frequently as recommended by a dentist in Windsor – typically 22 hours a day. The aligners are easily removable so you can still eat, drink and brush your teeth like normal. However, do not forget to put them back in immediately after enjoying a meal or cleaning your teeth!
Tip 2: Practice Good Oral Hygiene
Practicing good oral hygiene is key to successful and timely ClearCorrect treatment. Before putting your aligners back in after eating a meal, be sure to properly brush your teeth. Otherwise, harmful food particles can become trapped between your teeth and aligners, increasing the risk of tooth decay. Developing a cavity that requires dental work will most likely interrupt – and therefore slow down – the ClearCorrect treatment.
Tip 3: Clean Your Aligners
Dry saliva and plaque on your aligners can create a breeding ground for bacteria, so be sure to rinse your aligners when you remove them. Avoid vigorous brushing that can scratch your aligners – this type of damage can actually make your aligners less effective. Lastly, consider soaking your aligners at home using denture cleaner to keep your trays clear and sanitized.
Tip 4: Be Gentle
When taking out your aligners to eat or drink, be sure to store them in a hard, protective case. Wrapping your aligners in napkins or tissues and placing them in a purse or bag is an easy way to forget about them. When you finally remember them later, they may already be broken from jostling around. Waiting for replacement aligners will undoubtedly delay your treatment.
ClearCorrect is a modern alternative to traditional braces that can help you achieve the smile of your dreams without interrupting your daily life. Just follow the simple tips above to transform your smile without delay!
