Any patient of Wagner Dentistry already knows that Drs. Wade and Wayne Wagner make it a point to create an entirely unique and individualized treatment plan for each of their patients. It is all about optimal dental health and the best smile possible. This is one of the reasons they offer clear braces known as ClearCorrect® to their Downtown Las Vegas patients.
WHAT ARE CLEARCORRECT® CLEAR BRACES?
Unlike classic braces with their uncomfortable and slow acting wires and brackets, clear braces like ClearCorrect use a series of nearly invisible aligner trays to quickly adjust the teeth to a more aligned and straightened position. They can achieve the same results as wire braces, but no one will know you are straightening your teeth along the way!
Patients will come to our dental office and have the appropriate evaluation by one of our Downtown Las Vegas dentists. This will include a check on overall dental health. After all, it is senseless to dedicate the time to straightening your teeth if they are not cavity free and healthy!
If you are a candidate for clear braces from ClearCorrect, the dentist will do the appropriate x-rays, photos and impressions needed for the lab to create your customized set of aligning trays. They are designed exclusively for your use and are formulated to slowly, steadily, and firmly apply pressure to the teeth and force them gently into a new and improved position.
You will need to wear them at least 22 hours each day, removing them only to eat and clean your teeth. You will also visit the dentist office periodically to get your progress checked and to get a new array of aligner trays to use over the coming weeks. Most trays are worn for roughly three weeks before the next set is put to work.
HOW EFFECTIVE ARE CLEAR BRACES?
Not everyone is a good candidate for ClearCorrect because aligners cannot always close extremely wide gaps or align heavily crooked or misaligned teeth. However, if you are able to get approved for clear braces, the ClearCorrect approach can take up to two years to achieve their goals.
There are different treatment options based on the severity of your needs with choices for six sets of trays, twelve sets, and unlimited numbers of trays if your needs are a bit more challenging or complex. Most patients in our Downtown Las Vegas dentist office will discover that the method works for those with:
- Overcrowded teeth
- Some spacing or gaps between teeth
- Under or overbite issues
- Rotated or crooked teeth (moderate)
The reason that many patients choose them is due to the fact that they are mostly undetectable, removable, and comfortable. They can address fairly noticeable orthodontic issues without making it obvious that any treatment is being done. They do not alter the speech of those who use them, and they eliminate the risks to the teeth that more traditional braces create, allowing for flossing, brushing and regular cleanings.
If you are an adult or teen who would prefer to straighten your teeth as discreetly and privately as possible, and to do so using a proven technology like ClearCorrect, please contact our office today. We are glad to book a consultation to help you determine if you are a candidate for these braces and to also review any other dental needs you have. We can be reached by phone at 702-877-2222 or use our online contact form.
