There is no reason to be unhappy with your smile.
Gaps, crowding, and misaligned teeth CAN be corrected. And you don’t have to wear the noticeable metal braces of the past. Dr. Thiel and his team use ClearCorrect technology, providing comfortable and unnoticeable teeth aligners for people of all ages
ClearCorrect is a system of invisible aligners that are crafted specially for your teeth. These aligners help to push your teeth into place gradually. They are made from clear plastic, making them virtually unnoticeable.
How do I get started with ClearConnect?
First, Dr. Thiel will evaluate your situation to ensure ClearConnect is the best option for you. He will take photos and x-rays of your teeth to determine if you are the right candidate for this treatment. If you are, we’ll make a mold of your teeth right in the office so your aligners can be custom-made for your exact teeth and mouth.
How do I wear ClearConnect?
You’ll wear your aligners for about 22 hours of every day. You can take them out while eating, flossing, and brushing your teeth.
How does ClearConnect work?
ClearConnect is designed to straighten your teeth in phases. We’ll give you new aligners every two to three weeks that bring you closer and closer to the overall desired position of your teeth.
How long will it take to straighten my teeth?
Your treatment plan can take from a few months to a few years. We’ll do periodic exams to ensure your treatment plan is still on track.
How do the aligners feel?
Some patients report slight discomfort when their aligners are placed, either initially or as their treatment progresses. Your bite may also periodically feel different, but you will get used to that. Overall, patients say it’s easy and comfortable to wear ClearConnect aligners.
How much does ClearConnect cost?
Costs depend on the length of treatment and the exact problem that needs to be corrected, so they vary widely. A lot of insurance companies cover orthodontia services, which is what ClearConnect falls under. ClearConnect’s popularity seems to indicate that patients find it an affordable option.
