Crooked or misaligned teeth can negatively impact how you view yourself, which may ultimately affect your confidence. Invisible braces can help correct crooked or misaligned teeth for patients who desire a convenient way to correct their teeth. Houston, TX dentist Dr. Eddie Pruitt offers a range of solutions to correct crooked teeth, including clear correct braces. Clear correct braces are clear, removable braces that gently and discreetly realign the teeth over the course of treatment.
Why Correct Crooked or Misaligned Teeth
Correcting crooked or misaligned teeth not only improve the aesthetic of your smile, but it can also contribute to improving your overall oral health. When the teeth are misaligned, it makes it more difficult for patients to thoroughly clean all parts of the teeth and gums. When the teeth and gums aren’t properly cleaned, dental issues like gum disease, cavities, and tooth decay are more likely to develop. Crooked teeth may be associated with TMJ or other bite disorders. The goal is to prevent complex dental problems from occurring by taking precautionary steps to keep your smile healthy and functional.
Clear Correct Braces
Dr. Pruitt will work with you to create a set of custom-made aligners that fit securely in the mouth. Once your aligners are created, Dr. Pruitt will discuss aftercare instructions to keep you well informed about your treatment. Your aligners are usually worn in two-week intervals over the span of your treatment time. The length of your treatment will depend on the severity of your alignment issues and the overall health of your teeth. For your convenience, Dr. Pruitt will schedule future visits to check the progression of your treatment and make any necessary adjustments.
Clear correct braces offer a range of benefits for patients seeking to correct a crooked or misaligned smile. Unlike traditional metal braces, clear correct comes equipped with a removable aligner. Removable aligners make the everyday task of eating, brushing, and flossing, more comfortable and more convenient. Patients don’t have to worry about food restrictions, or cleaning between brackets during their oral hygiene routine. Wearing braces that are virtually invisible are ideal for both adult and teen patients. Clear correct braces don’t carry the same social stigma that traditional braces may present. Patients can enjoy the result of braces with the look and feel of traditional braces.
