Clear Correct Braces
Examination and Assessment
Braces not only make cosmetic improvements but they also properly align teeth and jaws to alleviate physical health problems. Once braces are in place, they should improve an individual’s bite and speech.
Braces can be applied to teeth for a number of reasons:
Traditional Braces vs. ClearCorrect
Traditional braces are a common procedure that involves the use of brackets and wire. Dr. Derksen will refer patients to a trusted orthodontist for this type of treatment.
Traditional braces are typically worn for about 2 years depending on the individual.
ClearCorrect is a clear aligner option that can be completed by Dr. Derksen. ClearCorrect uses clear trays to straighten teeth. The clear trays are great options for patients who do not want the obvious traditional braces. Dr. Derksen will evaluate to determine if you are a candidate for ClearCorrect.
ClearCorrect clear aligners are typically worn 9 months to 2 years.
