There are now new companies entering into this type (clear aligner therapy) of orthodontic care.
The one we use is - ClearCorrect - the simple, effective way to straighten your teeth, so you can get a smile you'll love.
The primary difference between Invisalign and ClearCorrect is cost, and we pass this savings on to you.
ClearCorrect is the clear and simple alternative to braces, a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth as you wear them, each aligner moving your teeth just a little bit at a time.
They're practically invisible, so most people won't even know you're in treatment, they fit you perfectly, so they're more comfortable than regular braces, and they're removable, so you can eat whatever you like and clean your teeth normally.
How does it work?
Dr. Hafernik will take impressions, x-rays, and photos of your teeth, then send them to the ClearCorrect laboratory with instructions for the tooth movements you need to achieve your ideal smile. At the lab, they will create a 3D model of your mouth and then a series of clear plastic aligners custom-fitted to your teeth. Each aligner will apply targeted pressure to the teeth selected by Dr. Hafernik, slowly moving them into alignment. Every six weeks or so, Dr. Hafernik will check on your progress and give you your next two sets of aligners. Unlike other aligner companies, ClearCorrect laboratory manufactures your aligners in phases, so Dr. Hafernik can request changes at any time. Treatment usually takes 6-18 months, but you'll start to see results right away.
What can it do?
ClearCorrect can treat a wide variety of issues that keep people from achieving their ideal smiles. Straighter teeth don't just look better, they work better too. Poorly-aligned teeth can interfere with bite function, wear out quicker, and are more prone to cavities. Ask anyone here at Dr. Hafernik's how ClearCorrect can help you.
