Should I Get Invisalign or ClearCorrect?November 21, 2022 9:46 pm
Do you have a crooked smile? Orthodontic treatment straightens your teeth, improves their appearance, and makes them easier to clean! Metal braces are the traditional method, but there’s also Invisalign and ClearCorrect. Which of these two clear aligner therapies should you get?
Invisalign vs. ClearCorrect: How Are They Different?
Invisalign and ClearCorrect both use gentle pressure to straighten crooked teeth, but Invisalign is the most popular brand. The aligners are made from a patented material called SmartTrack, which is designed to be more effective and more comfortable. ClearCorrect uses a different special resin plastic. These aligners are thinner and slightly less noticeable than Invisalign, though they can be less durable, too.
Which Clear Aligner Therapy Should You Get?
Invisalign and ClearCorrect are essentially the same in how they work, but if cost is your primary concern, ClearCorrect is often less expensive. On the other hand, ClearCorrect treatment may take longer than Invisalign. Everyone’s case is different, so we’ll create a treatment plan and estimate how much it will cost before you make a decision.
How Do You Take Care of Your Clear Aligners?
Invisalign and ClearCorrect are cared for in the same way. Both should be removed before you eat or drink anything other than water. To keep the aligners clean, they need to be regularly washed with water and a mild dish soap or cleanser. You should never use hot water as heat can warp the shape of your aligners. Always rinse or wash your aligners before you put them back in your mouth.
