Serving Choto, Northshore, and surrounding areas of Knoxville, TN
The importance of having straight, well-aligned teeth goes beyond just making your smile look better and making you feel confident. Crooked teeth increase your risk of oral health issues later in life, including crowding, bite alignment problems and jaw dysfunction.
Get the straight teeth you always wanted with ClearCorrect. Choto Family Dentistry is a licensed ClearCorrect provider in Knoxville and can prescribe this cutting-edge orthodontic system for adolescents or adults.
What is ClearCorrect and how does it work?
Through a series of clear plastic aligners, ClearCorrect gently adjusts teeth into their ideal, straight position.
During your initial consultation, we will take impressions of your mouth. These impressions are used to fabricate your custom made aligners that will be worn to straighten your teeth. A series of aligners will be fabricated, and you will wear each set as instructed by your Choto cosmetic dentist. You continue switching to a new set of aligners until the completion of your treatment. We will advise you on when to switch to a new set of aligners, and as to how long your treatment will last.
In addition to being almost indistinguishable when worn, these aligners also are removable; you can take them out when you eat, drink, perform oral hygiene, or when attending a special occasion where photos will be taken. That being said, a ClearCorrect patient needs to wear the aligners for a minimum of 22 hours each day in order to ensure successful treatment.
You can expect a follow-up appointment every 4-6 weeks, where your orthodontist in Choto will evaluate the progress of the treatment and give you a new set of aligners to continue to guide your teeth into the ideal alignment.
How long does ClearCorrect take?
Every patient is different, and length of treatment can vary. However, in most cases, patients will achieve desired results within 12 months. To determine the length of treatment needed for your case, speak with your cosmetic dentist in Northshore. An individualized treatment plan will be devised to outline your orthodontic treatment.
Why choose ClearCorrect?
The clear aligners allow you to wear them with confidence while achieving the orthodontic results you want. That makes ClearCorrect the preferred treatment for adults who may have been hesitant to seek orthodontic treatment through traditional braces.
ClearCorrect also is more comfortable and convenient than traditional braces. The wires on braces can irritate the mouth and gums, and since the aligners are removable, it makes it easy to maintain a thorough regimen of oral hygiene. Braces can make it hard to properly brush and floss your teeth because of the necessity to navigate around the wires and brackets.
