ClearCorrect Invisible Braces
A perfectly aligned smile isn’t just more attractive; it’s also healthier. In addition to a more pleasing look, teeth that line up properly are easier to brush and floss, which helps prevent decay and gum disease.
A Straighter Smile with ClearCorrect Aligners
Unfortunately, the idea of involved orthodontic treatment with metal brackets and wires is enough to turn people away from straightening their crooked teeth. If you have crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, Dr. Ron Ko offers discreet orthodontic treatment with ClearCorrect invisible braces—without metal braces!
ClearCorrect aligners are crystal clear and so discreet that most people won’t notice you’re wearing them. This is the perfect tooth straightening option for adults and teens who want to maintain their unique image during treatment.
By individualizing your treatment plan, ClearCorrect’s comfortable aligners place gentle pressure on crooked and misaligned teeth to straighten them and address several orthodontic issues.
Get Started with a ClearCorrect Evaluation
The easiest way to see if you’re a good candidate for ClearCorrect is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Ron Ko at 12 Dentistry at his Puyallup, WA dental office. Dr. Ko will perform a comprehensive evaluation, complete with photos, x-rays, and digital impressions of your teeth.
ClearCorrect addresses many of the same issues as bracket-and-wire braces and might be a good choice for you if you have crooked, crowded, overlapped, or gapped teeth.
Dr. Ko can also address certain malocclusions (bite problems) such as overbites and underbites.
How ClearCorrect Treatment Works
During your evaluation at our Puyallup dental office, our ClearCorrect dentist uses your digital impressions to create a virtual 3-D model of your mouth. Dr. Ko uses the virtual model to predict how your teeth will move through different treatment stages.
Based on his input, a ClearCorrect lab custom-crafts several sets of clear aligners designed to move your teeth millimeter by millimeter into the desired position.
How to Wear ClearCorrect Aligners
You’ll return to our Puyallup dental office to pick up your first sets of aligners and receive instructions for wearing them. Wear one set for 2-3 weeks (we’ll tell you how long), then switch to the second set.
Plan to wear your aligners for 22 hours a day, removing them only for meals and oral hygiene. Every 4-6 weeks, you’ll return to 12 Dentistry so Dr. Ko can check on your progress and give you the next sets of aligners.
If you have a big event like a wedding or reunion, go ahead and take your aligners out for a few hours, but remember that the success and speed of your treatment depend on your compliance.
ClearCorrect can produce results in as little as 12-18 months for those who wear the aligners conscientiously every day.
