How do you feel when you smile? Can you relax and enjoy the moment — worry free? Or, do you raise your hand to cover your mouth in hopes no one noticed your teeth? It doesn’t have to be like this. When you have problems like crooked teeth or bite issues, getting treatment leaves you with a beautiful smile and improved oral health. Crooked teeth are difficult to brush and floss properly, which can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss.
Also, untreated orthodontic issues can cause other problems, such as worn teeth, impaired chewing, jaw pain, speech problems, and an increased chance of injury to your teeth. The good news is the team at The Best Braces can correct your smile with ClearCorrect™.
ClearCorrect™ is a series of clear aligners developed to straighten your teeth. 3D imaging technology guides the movement of your teeth through the treatment stages. This technology allows you to get a glimpse of your new smile before you begin treatment.
Your aligners are custom-fitted for you, based on your orthodontic needs. Aligner sets are replaced every two weeks in most cases. Each set of trays in the sequence causes a certain degree of tooth movement.
You’ll have a few visits during your treatment to monitor your progress. Occasionally, you’ll wear a set of aligners for a shorter or longer time. Keep your scheduled appointments so your treatment plan stays on track.
What’s fantastic about ClearCorrect™ aligners is their removability. Remove your aligners when you drink, eat, or take care of your teeth. And oral hygiene is a breeze because there are no wires and brackets to work around.
- Brushing and flossing your teeth after meals maintains good oral hygiene. Bring your aligner case and a travel-size kit containing a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss when you’re away from home.
- Rinse the aligners when you take them out. Clean them with clear antibacterial soap. Soak your aligners in clear aligner cleaning solution or a denture cleaner daily for approximately 15 minutes.
Compliance is the key to successful treatment. Wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. Remember, only remove them to eat, drink, brush your teeth, or to clean your aligners.
- No food restrictions
- Better oral health
- Improved appearance
- More confidence

Treatment time is based on your orthodontic needs. When you complete treatment, you’ll wear a retainer to maintain your beautiful new smile. Find out if ClearCorrect™ is the right option for you.
