What do ClearCorrect braces treat?

ClearCorrect braces, or clear aligner trays, treat spacing and alignment problems. Each tray puts pressure on your teeth to slowly correct crooked, widely-spaced, or crowded teeth.

ClearCorrect braces also treat overbites (when top teeth extend too far over bottom), underbites (when bottom teeth stick out under top), and crossbites (when your bite is twisted). ClearCorrect braces can also treat other jaw and bite problems.

ClearCorrect braces are actually not braces at all. They are a series of aligners like Invisalign that are used to treat mild to moderate orthodontic cases. In my hands I find that aligners work well for mildly crowded, crooked teeth, minor open bite, deep bites, and overbites. Because they merely encase the teeth and are not actually attached there are some movements that are difficult for them. For the right cases however, they are a wonderful treatment choice.
