Clear Correct invisible braces are clear tooth straighteners designed to properly align teeth and improve your smile. Clear Correct does not use wires or brackets to straighten teeth like traditional metal braces but rather a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner moves teeth slightly until patients eventually get the straight teeth they were hoping for.
Dr. Arash Vahid and the dental professionals at AV Dental Associates in Jersey City routinely provide this effective alternative to metal braces for many of their patients. Most people won’t notice you’re wearing them and you can go about your business, improving your smile invisibly and under the radar.
If you’re a good candidate for clear aligners, Dr. Vahid will take photos and x-rays, use a scanner or plan to take a series impressions to capture the unique shape of your teeth. Molds are taken and then Dr. Vahid and his team make a series of aligners customized to apply pressure to the teeth that you want to straighten.
Dr. Vahid and the team will then check in on your teeth’s progress periodically. Based on what they find, they will create and provide you with new sets of aligners every four to six weeks.
Patients are expected to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day, which is essential to create a perfectly aligned smile. You will progress through each step until your treatment is done and your smile is as perfect as you had dreamed.
