Imagine having a straight and even smile without announcing it to the world with metal brackets and wires. Your dentist in Trinity and New clear correctPort Richey, FL, Dr. James Lewis, offers this option to his patients with Clear Correct, a revolutionary way to straighten your teeth without making it obvious to others! You can learn more about this orthodontic system here.

What is Clear Correct?

Instead of the traditional metal hardware, Clear Correct is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear plastic trays, called aligners, to fit against your teeth, which gradually moves them into the proper position. Approximately every month, you'll switch out the aligners you've been wearing for a new set that reflects the changes your teeth have undergone in that time. The number of aligners you need in your series will depend on the extent of your alignment issues and your Trinity and New Port Richey dentist's recommendations.

Who should wear Clear Correct?

In general, your Trinity and New Port Richey dentist recommends clear braces systems like Clear Correct to adult patients instead of children or teens. The reason is threefold: first, kids and adolescents may not be finished losing their primary teeth and may need more long-term intervention for straightening. Secondly, keeping track of the plastic aligners is essential; losing one can throw off your entire regimen and can be expensive to replace. While adults can typically manage this responsibility, it's often too much to remember for younger patients. Finally, it can also be too tempting for them to wear the aligners less often than the 22 hours a day that is recommended; this can stall treatment time and cause a relapse.

If you're ready to straighten your smile discreetly and comfortably, contact Dr. Lewis, your dentist in the Trinity and New Port Richey, FL areas today to set up your consultation appointment!
