ClearCorrect clear aligners invisibly straighten your teeth over time using medical-grade plastic. These trays can be removed for eating and cleaning and make the orthodontic process more comfortable for patients because there are no wires, brackets, or elastics to worry about. Imagine being able to enjoy an apple without slicing it into small pieces or enjoying popcorn without it getting stuck in your brackets.
Using continuous pressure over a series of trays, you can see results faster and with less discomfort than traditional braces. Plus, no brackets and wires mean no sore spots on your cheeks, lips, and tongue.
After an initial visit and consultation with photos, x-rays, and 3D digital scans of your teeth, Dr. Ian Mapes can determine if ClearCorrect aligners will work for you. After all the preliminary work is complete, you will receive a series of trays with specific instructions for wear – usually two to three weeks per tray.
Because they can be removed, ClearCorrect aligners require a strong commitment to consistent wear and are best suited for older, responsible teens and adults. Diligence wearing your clear aligners for the specified time will help ensure the results you want within a reasonable timeframe.

Something For Everyone
Most people are excellent candidates for ClearCorrect aligners. However, ClearCorrect may not be a suitable choice for extensive orthodontic cases involving significant movement. Some may also choose fixed braces because there are no trays to lose.
You may discuss adding tooth whitening to your plan which can remove years of stain accumulation. In some cases, porcelain veneers can lift a straight smile to another level or may even offer an alternative to orthodontics.
The smile you’ve always dreamed of may be closer than you think with flexible payment options. More insurance plans are choosing to cover clear aligners as an acceptable method of orthodontic treatment. Check with our office today for more information.
