What is ClearCorrect?
ClearCorrect is one of the leading alternatives to intrusive, and often painful, metal braces. It’s a specialized treatment plan developed to correct imperfections in the spacing and the straightness of your teeth using a series of clear, BPA-free plastic aligners that gently pull your teeth together. The results of the ClearCorrect clear aligner system are nothing short of amazing. Shape your perfect smile with braces that are virtually impossible to detect.
ClearCorrect is the new standard
Metal braces are the orthodontic solutions of the past. They’re visually conspicuous, unwieldy, uncomfortable, and need to be regularly adjusted by an orthodontist. They can also be difficult to maintain and make some life activities, such as playing contact sports difficult. Except in highly specialized cases that involve severe crowding and other acute dental deformities, clear aligners are clearly the way forward for patients seeking a less invasive, less noticeable orthodontic solution with minimal impact on their day-to-day lives.
ClearCorrect isn’t just the way of the future; it’s the aesthetic and orthodontic standard of today when it comes to stealthily correcting crooked teeth while minimally impacting a patient’s pretreatment lifestyle. ClearCorrect aligners are, as the name suggests, nearly invisible to most observers making them a particularly ideal treatment for more self-conscious patients such as teenagers, young adults, models, and actors, or for adults who wish to avoid the visual distraction (and maintenance hassle) of metal braces.
The ClearCorrect system is a proven orthodontic solution. ClearCorrect’s clear aligner system has been on the market since 2006 making them well-established players in the orthodontic field with over a decade of documented success.
To date over 6 million patients have been treated utilizing clear aligner technology. In less than two decades, ClearCorrect has captured a full quarter of the available adult market and continues to be in high demand.
The benefits of clear aligners couldn’t be more “clear.”
It’s easy to see why ClearCorrect is in such high demand amongst consumers. It offers exactly what people want and need which is an invisible orthodontic solution that accommodates their usual eating habits and regular activities. Also, it doesn’t look and feel like a barbed wire fence inside your mouth.
What more could a person want? ClearCorrect molds are fabricated from clear, BPA-free plastic which means that they are nearly invisible to the naked eye.
Patients can wear them out in public, wear them to work, and even while playing sports without a second thought about appearances. Better yet, each aligner can be removed at will, such as during mealtimes, which allow patients to effectively put their orthodontic treatments on pause whenever they need to and continue where they left off once they pop their aligners back in.
For consumers, that’s incredibly powerful and empowering. ClearCorrect users can pretty much do whatever they want, whenever they want. If you wanted to play a game of pickup basketball at the community park; that is not a problem. You can play without concern regarding facial contact that might result in cuts or bruises.
If you wanted to eat caramel popcorn clusters and almonds, no worries. Just pop out your clear aligners and enjoy any number of foods that would be detrimental to traditional braces. There is no need to worry about stubborn debris getting stuck in the nooks and crannies. Eat what you want to eat, whenever you want to eat it. Once you're done, pop your clear aligners back in place and continue your orthodontic treatment on your time, your way, without anyone giving your mouth a second thought.
The ClearCorrect system is compatible with daily life
Because the ClearCorrect aligner system is removable, your routine tooth care does not drastically change on a daily basis. You can remove the aligner for that board presentation or job interview. The lack of the protruding metal found in traditional braces minimizes cuts and discomfort while undergoing treatment.
It's not too late for beautiful smile
Many adults have the misconception that teeth can only be straightened during their youth. Teeth alignment can be corrected at any time using the revolutionary ClearCorrect system. In some cases, a combined approach obtains the best results. At ArtLab Dentistry, breakthrough ClearCorrect treatment plans are routinely provided for adult patients.
The ClearCorrect system provides a feasible way of finally getting the confidence-building smile patients desire with the flexibility given by an invisible, flexible, and removable solution.
How ClearCorrect Works
Aligners are worn for 22 hours per day, removing them only to eat and perform dental hygiene. As your teeth gradually move into the desired positions, the aligners are switched until a perfect smile is achieved. During treatment, you will visit Dr. Reshad approximately once every six weeks for a brief examination. This ensures that your teeth are moving into alignment as expected and allows treatment to be modified as necessary.
How long will ClearCorrect take to achieve noticeable results?
At ArtLab Dentistry we have seen our patients achieve their goals in about 12 months. Some results are obtained in a shorter length of time depending on the degree of correction required.
Am I a candidate for ClearCorrect?
Not everyone is a candidate for ClearCorrect. Patients with an uneven bite, significant disparities in teeth height, or rotated teeth, may need traditional metal braces or other cosmetic dentistry. ClearCorrect requires that patients wear their aligners for 22 hours per day. Younger patients who may not be ready for the responsibility of replacing them may not be good candidates.
If you are considering ClearCorrect, Dr. Reshad can assist you in making the right decision. He is a world-renowned prosthodontist who has been thoroughly trained in the ClearCorrect system, as well as other procedures, for correcting misaligned teeth and can provide you with a treatment plan that is compatible with your personal needs.

9 Visible Benefits of ClearCorrect
ClearCorrect has minimal aesthetic impact
Clear aligners are fabricated from inconspicuous, clear thermoplastic materials. Whether out in public or at home, no one will ever know that you’re wearing your ClearCorrect braces.
ClearCorrect is Removable
One of the biggest features of the Invisalign system is the ability to remove your aligners or place them back into your mouth at any moment for any reason. The added flexibility means that when an occasion may arise for which braces would be an inconvenience, eating food or playing contact sports, for instance, patients can just pop their ClearCorrect braces out and temporarily tuck them away.
ClearCorrect is easy to clean
The same ease of use and flexibility extends to maintenance and hygiene. Individuals undergoing treatment with ClearCorrect can just remove their braces and wash them in the sink with warm water and soap. Once removed they can also be brushed as one would brush their teeth.
ClearCorrect has little physical impact on the oral cavity
Unlike metal braces which have extruding metal components which can cause damage and discomfort to the oral cavity, ClearCorrect aligners are molded to the natural contours of your teeth and are mostly flat. This eliminates the potential for causing incidental cuts and bruises while drastically improving patient comfort. What’s more, clear aligners are precisely designed and fabricated to apply the right amount of pressure to each tooth over the entire tooth’s surface. Metal braces rely on wires and contact components which do not distribute these forces as uniformly potentially resulting in damage to the teeth themselves.
ClearCorrect won't cause incidental cuts and bruises
It is perfectly safe to wear clear aligners while participating in almost any activity. They are particularly well-suited for use by physically active clients and athletes for whom there may be more movement or potential contact between the mouth and teeth as a result of action. Basketball players, for example, would likely choose Clear Correct treatment as opposed to traditional braces for the simple reason that Invisalign braces won’t cut or bruise the oral cavity during play.
ClearCorrect is comfortable to wear
Traditional metal braces are complex contraptions that are composed of many individual metal components and wires. With so many protruding bits and pieces, the opportunities for discomfort increase dramatically. On the other hand, Clear Correct aligners are precisely milled from a single piece of plastic material. There aren’t any joints, abutments, connectors, springs, or wires. There is only a single, monolithic and smooth piece of equipment free of any protrusions or projections.
ClearCorrect won't collect debris
The monolithic nature of each Invisalign brace makes it more difficult for food to get trapped reducing maintenance time and effort while also promoting a healthier mouth.
ClearCorrect uses precision computer-guided design and fabrication
Clear Correct braces are custom fabricated for each patient with incredible accuracy. Each step of the process, from imaging to the development and fabrication of each aligner set is digitally assisted to ensure a perfect fit and treatment path that minimizes time and guarantees beautiful results. With traditional metal braces, results are determined by a human being, not a computer. An orthodontist must painstakingly adjust the braces for fit, comfort, and projected results which introduce an unwelcome degree of human error into the process. With traditional braces, client results may depend heavily on the individual training and experience of the orthodontist in question. With CAD-CAM-based clear aligner technologies, Clear Correct results are far more predictable and can be successfully administered by less experienced dental professionals - not just orthodontists.
ClearCorrect has predictable results and treatment path
Because the ClearCorrect system relies heavily on computer-aided design and fabrication, as well as computer-aided projections for how the treatment path will unfold, results are far, far more predictable than with traditional braces.
ClearCorrect vs. Invisalign
If you've researched braces or clear braces you've likely come across the brand Invisalign. Invisalign has been around for a couple of decades while ClearCorrect is newer and has been around for just over a decade. Since both brands use clear aligners to straighten patients' teeth I want to share a couple of differences as well as the things they both have in common.
ClearCorrect is more affordable
ClearCorrect is considered by many to be lower in cost. Essentially ClearCorrect and Invisalign do the same thing; they are clear aligners designed to move teeth. Many cases with ClearCorrect use fewer aligners, so the fees generally come out lower.
ClearCorrect is an American company
ClearCorrect is an American company with its products manufactured in the USA while Invisalign is a global company and their products are made around the globe.
Easily removed and cleaned
ClearCorrect and Invisalign are both easily removed and cleaned.
ClearCorrect and Invisalign are both custom fit to a patient's teeth. They are also non-invasive.
Adjust the teeth in small increments
ClearCorrect and Invisalign both adjust the teeth in subtle increments. Based on your treatment plan, you will receive a new aligner about every 2 to 4 weeks.
Invisible - Clear
ClearCorrect and Invisalign are virtually clear, so no one has to know that you're wearing braces.
