Wanting a brighter and straighter smile is a fairly common desire among adults, but most people are unwilling to deal with the wires and brackets that come with traditional braces beyond their teenage years. Fortunately there are modern alternatives to these types of braces that allow adults to inconspicuously correct their smiles.
Family dentist Wade Takenishi, DDS offers ClearCorrect™ for patients who want to conveniently straighten their teeth without the embarrassment of braces. ClearCorrect™ technology utilizes a series of custom and removable clear aligners to straighten teeth over time. Patients begin seeing results immediately, but it generally takes 18 months for the treatment to be completed and teeth to come into perfect alignment.
Along with being discreet, people choose clear aligners for the convenience they provide in daily life. Rather than avoid certain foods that would become stuck in traditional braces, patients who use ClearCorrect™ can simply remove their aligners while eating and drinking! It’s as easy as that.
ClearCorrect™ is also a more affordable option when compared to other systems like Invisalign®, and patients who opt for it can save up to $1,000 in their overall treatment. The price of ClearCorrect™ is comparable to traditional braces, as well.
Patients who are curious to see if they qualify for ClearCorrect™ treatment can speak with Dr. Takenishi about their options. To learn more about the benefits of ClearCorrect™ or to schedule an appointment with Oahu’s top dentists, call (808) 593-2775.
