If your smile is crooked, crowded, or you have gaps between teeth, you may be considering orthodontics to straighten your smile. Thankfully, with advances in modern materials and techniques, we can straighten teeth faster, more comfortably, and more discreetly than ever before with clear aligner therapy. Dr. DeFelice and Dr. Karlson are happy to be certified providers of both Invisalign and ClearCorrect, and can safely and effectively provide discreet orthodontic treatment from the comfort of your dental home.
You’ve probably already heard about Invisalign®, so what’s all the fuss about? Invisalign is the original and most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Committed to constant innovation, Invisalign is backed by over 20 years of clinical research, 700 patents, and over 5 million smiles worldwide.
Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners, custom designed to apply pressure and gently shift teeth into their desired position. Aligners are removable for easy cleaning and eating, and virtually invisible to let your natural smile shine through treatment.
ClearCorrect® is another clear aligner system similar to Invisalign. So what’s the difference? ClearCorrect is a smaller brand name backed with less research, so you may be able to achieve the same or similar results at less cost than Invisalign. If you’re into shopping local, ClearCorrect aligners are made in America in the heart of Texas since 2006.
ClearCorrect aligners are also made from smooth, durable plastic, so they’re comfortable to wear and easy to use. Your aligners should be worn for at least 22 hours every day, and you will switch to a new set every few weeks as determined in your personalized treatment plan. You’ll return to the office periodically according to your plan so we can monitor your progress and track your results.
