Have you ever considered adult braces? Maybe you have issues with your teeth that you dislike and would like to have corrected? But at least a part of you is hesitant; you don’t want to have a mouth full of metal brackets and wires. Maybe you’re worried that adult braces will make you look immature or inexperienced.

But these concerns don’t have to keep you from having the smile you serve. At Lapalco Family Dental in Marrero, LA we offer the ClearCorrect system of adult braces. ClearCorrect are nearly invisible aligners that you correct your teeth in a style, so no one even notices that you’re in any type of braces.

In today’s blog post, we’re going to tell you more about the ClearCorrect system of adult braces. ClearCorrect is similar to Invisalign, but even less noticeable. ClearCorrect is a great choice for older teenagers, students in college, busy working adults, and even parents. ClearCorrect allows you to discreetly straighten your teeth.

With ClearCorrect, you come into our office for an evaluation. We begin by taking photos and impressions of your teeth; this information is then used to make a 3D model of your teeth. We can actually show what your teeth will look like after your treatment. This system also allows you to plan out your treatment step by step.

After a few days, you will receive your first set of aligners. These aligners are made of extremely comfortable plastic, which means you won’t have to suffer from any irritation to your gums. You wear each aligner for a few weeks, and it works to correct your teeth. After a few weeks, you graduate onto the next set of aligners.

ClearCorrect can provide tremendous results after only a about a year of treatment. Best of all, the aligners are removable. That means that you can largely continue to live your life in an uninterrupted manner.

With traditional adult braces, there are limitations to the things you can eat and drink. Food can become caught in the wires of your braces. If not carefully, something as seemingly innocent as crusty bread can knock the brackets off of your teeth. That’s painful and can be hard to stick to Can you imagine living a year without eating the food you love?

Traditional adult braces can also make it difficult to maintain proper oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing are more difficult because you have to maneuver around the brackets and wires. The brackets may even leave unfortunate yellow stains on your teeth after they are removed. With ClearCorrect, this is not a problem because you simply remove the aligners and then brush and floss like normal.

ClearCorrect also gives you the increased confidence of knowing you can remove the aligners if you need to pose for a picture, or speak in public. No one even has to know that you’re wearing braces at all. It can just be a little secret between you and the dentist.

So what are you waiting for? Contact our office to schedule an evaluation for ClearCorrect today. At Lapalco Family Dental in Marrero, LA, we’re proud of the smiles we help our patients achieve. You can make an appointment by calling 504-264-6461.
