Most of the adult orthodontic patients we see at our Jeffersonville, IN dentist’s office want to transform their smile but they are looking for something other than metal brackets and wires to get the job done.
We can certainly understand that, which is precisely why Dr. Kirchner has actually invested in the tools, training and technology necessary to support TWO alternative methods for fixing a crooked, crowded, or gapped smile. Not many other practices can say that, which is why you will want to trust your dental transformation to us.
Both Invisalign and ClearCorrect offer an easier path to a better smile. It won’t take you 2-3 years to see a difference, either. Keep reading to hear more about these exciting opportunities and then be sure to follow up and schedule your clear aligner consultation with our team.
What Makes Clear Aligners So Special?
First of all, there won’t be any metal involved whatsoever. Both treatments rely on the same basic materials: clear plastic aligner trays that are similar to mouthpieces.
We will help design a series of these custom-built aligners that will do all the orthodontic shifting in small increments. Once the wheels are in motion, you’ll just switch them out on your own every two weeks or so instead of stopping by for monthly in-office orthodontic adjustments!
Since both Invisalign and ClearCorrect aligners are made of a gentle yet durable plastic that feels natural on your gums, cheeks and tongue, it will feel natural as the process unfolds. Plus, they won’t be noticed by peers, coworkers, friends, or family! No rude comments or nicknames will be aimed at you along the way!
No matter which system you decide on, you will enjoy the smooth, comfortable aligners because they are removable. That means that your food preferences won’t have to be modified. And maintaining your orthodontic gear is just a matter of rinsing the aligners under lukewarm water!
Dr. Kirchner found both Invisalign and ClearCorrect to be safe, subtle, and effective programs. Treatment time is usually only a matter of 6-12 months, depending on the severity of the problems we are fixing. Both plans offer great results in a fraction of the time, but there are a few differences, which brings us to our next point.
Is There Much Difference Between Invisalign And ClearCorrect?
There are a few differences between the two programs we offer. Invisalign trays are all made at the start of treatment, whereas ClearCorrect aligners can be made as you move forward. Invisalign was in use for about a decade before ClearCorrect came around, so it has a longer track record. However, ClearCorrect is made in the USA, whereas Invisalign materials are manufactured outside of the country. And ClearCorrect is normally a bit more affordable.
