Traditional braces are just one treatment option for patients with misaligned teeth. At The Dentists at Orenco Station, Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey offer ClearCorrect, a special cosmetic braces option that gives adults patients the chance to improve the appearance of their smile without drawing attention to their treatment.
Instead of using metal brackets and wires, ClearCorrect helps you achieve your goal with a set of clear, custom-made aligners. As you go through your treatment, you’ll wear each aligner for about two weeks. With each one, your teeth will be brought closer and closer to their ideal position.
But outside of being clear and not using brackets or wires, there’s another benefit of straightening your smile with ClearCorrect—your aligners are removable. What that means is that you can take them out for meals, but also for brushing and flossing. Because of this, you can enjoy your favorite foods and still brush and floss as thoroughly as you normally would. Brackets and wires can get in the way of caring for your smile, leading to an increased risk of gum disease and tooth decay, which would mean spending more time in the dental chair later on. ClearCorrect lets you eat what you enjoy, care for your smile normally, and instead of coming in to have your braces tightened, we’ll only need to see you every six to eight weeks to check your progress.
Do you have questions about ClearCorrect? Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey would be happy to answer them. Call The Dentists at Orenco Station today to reserve your consultation. We provide general, cosmetic, and restorative to patients from Hillsboro, Forrest Grove, Beaverton, Cornelius, and Rock Creek.
