You may have heard of the terms clear braces, invisible aligners, or invisible braces in 33618. ClearCorrect is a specialized system that straightens the teeth without being detected by other people. Unlike traditional metal braces and brackets that adhere to the teeth, ClearCorrect aligners fit invisibly over your upper or lower teeth to gently guide them into their right position. 

Within two years, and sometimes as soon as six months, our patients can enjoy a wonderfully straight and aligned smile. Clear braces in Tampa can fix a variety of oral health, jaw joint, and oral hygiene issues. 

Can Anyone Be a Good Candidate for ClearCorrect?

Unfortunately, this isn’t a good option for just anyone. Not everyone qualifies, but a good number of people do 

Invisible braces can address many issues, including:

  • Over and underbite—When your teeth do not line up properly, your bite becomes misaligned. Without fixing this issue, you may start developing oral health problems 
  • Overcrowding—When teeth are overcrowded, it can become difficult to properly clean your smile. Even if you remove extra teeth, it may be necessary to straighten your teeth through the use of invisible aligners
  • Gaps or uneven spacing —When there are big gaps in your smile, you may deal with issues like food impaction or tooth shifting. Clear aligners can adjust the gaps in your smile

At North Tampa Dentistry, our main priority is providing our patients with a strong and healthy bite. You may be a good ClearCorrect candidate if you have mild to moderate bite issues. The only time patients are not good candidates are if their bite issues are severe. If your bite misalignment is not severe and if you can commit to wearing aligners for 22 hours every day, then you make a great candidate. 

It's advisable that you also speak with your Carrollwood dentist or orthodontist to decide for sure if clear aligners are right for you.
