At Raynald Michel DDS, we see many patients who have always desired straighter teeth but are turned off by traditional metal braces. ClearCorrect aligners might be the perfect solution that will give you a smile you deserve.
Not everyone is born with perfectly straight teeth, but you don’t have to live with a crooked smile forever. Having crooked or misaligned teeth can be embarrassing, but you have options. While many patients opt for ClearCorrect to improve their appearances, we recommend straightening your teeth for oral hygiene purposes. If you are in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and are looking into ClearCorrect to enhance your smile, we encourage you to contact our dental team to answer any questions and to schedule your consultation. ClearCorrect is an accessible and easy way to get a straighter smile without living with metal brackets and wires. Clear aligners are a lifetime investment that is pain-free and invisible.
Why You Should Straighten Your Smile
Straight teeth are not only more visually attractive; they are easier to keep clean. Overlapping teeth can be challenging to brush and floss, and poor oral hygiene can lead to:
- Tooth decay—This is the most common problem our patients may have when they come in for a dental cleaning. Straight teeth are evenly spaced and easy to floss, and there are no hard to reach places where food debris can hide.
- Wear and tear—If your upper and lower jaws do not fit together when you bite down, this can lead tooth erosion that, if left untreated, can put stress on your teeth and may lead to cavities, gum disease, or infection. If you are in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and have misaligned teeth, we recommend that you contact Dr. Michel to prevent future dental complications.
- Getting dental procedures—If you have a chipped or broken tooth that needs a dental veneer, or if you are interested in cosmetic dental treatments to improve your smile; Dr. Michel may suggest ClearCorrect to place dental prosthetics correctly. Crooked teeth can make it difficult to put a dental crown or bridge, and you may need to straighten your smile.
What Is ClearCorrect?
ClearCorrect is an excellent alternative modern solution to wearing uncomfortable and unsightly metal braces. The process is simple and quicker than traditional braces. Dr. Michel customizes clear plastic aligners that you put in and remove as necessary. These aligners are changed every two weeks, gradually and gently shift your teeth into the desired position. ClearCorrect aligners are gentle, pain-free, and convenient.
Because ClearCorrect aligners are removable, you can enjoy any food you want without worrying about anything getting stuck in your braces. They are easy to clean and maintain, and you can brush and floss your teeth as usual.
