ClearCorrect Q & A

What is ClearCorrect?

ClearCorrect are clear aligners that fit over your teeth to straighten them gradually. At Glenmont Dental, Dr. Conte customizes them specifically for you. The aligners are made from durable, stain-resistant polyurethane resin and are almost undetectable, unlike traditional metal braces. 

ClearCorrect applies the right amount of pressure to shift your teeth slowly into the desired position. You change out your trays every two to three weeks, and the team at Glenmont Dental monitors your progress until you reach your desired outcome.

At your initial consultation with Dr. Conte, he completes your exam, designs your plan, and tells you how long you need to wear ClearCorrect to get the results you want. Each plan is highly individualized since everyone’s teeth are different.

Am I a candidate for ClearCorrect?

ClearCorrect can help teens or adults with the following dental concerns:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps in teeth

ClearCorrect can help resolve most of these conditions effectively and discreetly. 

When you meet with Dr. Conte at Glenmont Dental, he evaluates your teeth and helps determine if ClearCorrect is the best choice for you.

What is it like to wear ClearCorrect?

ClearCorrect aligners are removable. However, it’s recommended you wear them 22 hours a day. You remove them to brush your teeth, floss, and eat. 

You can also clean them with a soft toothbrush and a nonabrasive toothpaste. You should rinse them in cool water before putting them back in your mouth.

Once your treatment plan is complete, Dr. Conte typically recommends a custom-made retainer to keep your teeth straight.
