The benefits of perfectly straight teeth go beyond cosmetic. Misaligned teeth can cause jaw pain, bite issues, and cavities. If you’re ready to straighten your smile, Leo Fierro, DDS, and Rodolfo Hernández-Morales, DDS, at Infinity Dental Group in San Jose, California, are there to make that process as fast and comfortable as possible. Call the office or make an appointment online to discuss ClearCorrect™ Aligners with Infinity Dental Group today.
ClearConnect is an alternative to braces and uses clear, plastic aligner trays to gradually straighten your teeth. Your provider takes an impression of your teeth to create a 3-D model of your mouth. Then trays are modeled to progressively straighten your teeth over time.
ClearConnect’s technology ensures that the aligners are minimally invasive and virtually invisible. They’re also resistant to clouding, so the aligners look as clear at the end of your treatment as they did at the beginning.
Almost anyone can use ClearConnect. It is currently available for both adults and teens.
ClearConnect is designed to treat:
Children who still have molars emerging and those with more complicated dental cases may not be a candidate. Consult with the providers at Infinity Dental Group to understand your options.
ClearConnect uses clear plastic aligners during a four-phase aligner therapy. The aligners are worn all of the time, with the exception of when you’re eating and drinking or brushing and flossing your teeth.
As you complete each phase and set of aligners, you will see noticeable differences in your smile. Periodic checkups with Infinity Dental Group are required to ensure your progress is on track and to receive your next set of aligners. Treatment time can vary based on your individual needs.
The biggest benefit of ClearConnect over traditional braces is that ClearConnect is virtually invisible. If you’re self-conscious about your teeth, the metal wires and brackets of braces only draw more attention to them as you go through the alignment process.
While ClearConnect is intended to be worn about 22 hours a day, you take them out to eat and clean your teeth. That allows for more complete and thorough cleanings than what’s possible with metal braces. Since ClearConnect is removable there are also no food restrictions.
Lastly, ClearConnect is less painful than traditional braces. The aligners are molded to specifically fit your mouth. ClearConnect aligners offer fewer gum and mouth issues, no cuts on the insides of cheeks from wires, and no waxes to apply to protect the gums.
