Many adults want to straighten their teeth but don’t want the trouble of braces or have the appearance of wearing traditional braces. Dr. Erpenbach offers ClearCorrect, a popular alternative that corrects crooked teeth using a series of clear, removable trays, or aligners, that are virtually invisible when worn.
The ClearCorrect system makes gradual adjustments to your teeth until they are in the desired position. During treatment, patients wear these aligners full-time, except when eating or brushing their teeth. In most cases, in just nine-to-eighteen months, patients are able to achieve the perfect smile of straight teeth they desire. Through the process, most people don’t even recognize ClearCorrect aligners are being used for orthotic treatment since they are nearly invisible.
When patients choose ClearCorrect aligners, Dr. Erpenbach utilizes 3-D computer imaging technology to generate the entire treatment plan and skilled technicians at our trusted dental laboratory produces a specific set of aligners customized for each patient’s needs. ClearCorrect patients wear an aligner for roughly three weeks, then move on to the next aligner in the series. With each aligner, teeth are moved more closely into the desired position. Every four-to-six weeks, Dr. Erpenbach checks an ClearCorrect patient’s progress to make sure the treatment plan is on course.
