But a confident smile isn't the only benefit of correcting your dental issues with custom-made ClearCorrect aligners your health can be positively impacted as well. Learn more about several common issues below that an experienced ClearCorrect doctor can work with you to correct.
Overly Crowded Teeth Overly crowded teeth: This occurs when there is simply a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can cause dental decay, an increase in chances of gum disease, and can prevent the normal function of teeth.
Widely Spaced TeethWidely spaced teeth: This occurs with abnormal continued growth of the jaw bone. When teeth are missing, this issue can also be caused by the other teeth shifting due to extra space. Spacing issues in teeth can cause some periodontal diseases.
Crossbite Crossbite: This occurs when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and/or the sides of the mouth. This issue can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease, and bone loss.
OverbiteOverbite: What people commonly refer to as an "overbite" is known to dental professionals as "overjet." It occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. It's typically caused by either genetics, bad oral habits, or over development of the bone that supports the teeth. This issue can lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth and can cause painful jaw and joint problems.
Underbite Underbite: This occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth. It's usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both. It can also be caused by missing upper teeth. This issue can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars which can lead to tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint problems.
Now you're excited to get started. It's simple. You must first go through a full comprehensive exam with necessary x-rays. This is to ensure you have NO active cavities or gum problems. You arrive at the office for diagnostics. We start by snapping 8 photos of your teeth and face. Next, we place intimate fitted plastic trays into your mouth and record impressions of your upper and lower teeth. That's it. You are now done with your appointment. We take it from here. We will send the impressions, x-rays, and photos to the ClearCorrect laboratory. In about 3 weeks, the laboratory will send us a back, via internet, a computerize 3D view of your teeth (Virtual Teeth).
On this program, we can watch your teeth move virtually on the computer screen. We study the results to ensure we like the final results. At this time, we can still make changes to the final outcome and positions of where the teeth will be positioned. You will be notified as to when the dentist finalizes the desired outcome for your approval. Once approved, the ClearCorrect aligners will then undergo fabrication. It will take the laboratory approximately 3 weeks to fabricate all of you aligners. The lab will send the aligners to our office and we will notify you upon their arrival to schedule an appointment.
At your delivery appointment, we will deliver the aligners and give you post op instruction and home care protocols. Every 2 weeks you will return to the office for your next aligner. It is extremely important that you wear your aligners 22 hours per day except when eating, brushing, and flossing. You will sleep with the aligners.
