Nobody’s perfect. Along with that, teeth typically aren’t perfect either. This is why every year millions of people choose to receive braces so they can achieve that perfect smile. At our Houston dental office, orthodontics is a huge part of what we do.

Braces started a long time, but they have really been revolutionized. At Nova Dental Care, we have the latest revolution in orthodontics: ClearCorrect.

ClearCorrect are invisible plastic trays that are custom designed for your teeth. These clear braces allow you to straighten their teeth without drastically changing your physical appearance with metal braces. The trays are created to slowly move the teeth into the desired position.

These plastic braces are made to fit your teeth, regardless of how misshapen they are. They are created after our dentist conducts a thorough oral examination and takes impressions of your teeth. Once the impressions are made, then trays are developed and then given to you.

You will be given the clear aligners to wear approximately 22 hours per day. Only remove the aligners to brush your teeth or to eat. Keeping them out for any period of time longer than that will cause the process to take much longer and could allow the teeth move back to their previous positions.

Wearing ClearCorrect plastic tray braces is a multi-step process. The amount of steps depends on the severity of the misalignment of the teeth. Each step usually takes between two and three weeks. Our dentist will examine how well the teeth are adjusting during each session’s appointment.

If your teeth need braces, then it only makes sense to straighten them. Not only do braces provide you with a beautiful smile, but they also help your overall oral health. Straight teeth keep food from getting stuck in hard to reach places, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

These clear braces, unlike metal and ceramic braces, keep you from getting food stuck in the metal or ceramic tangs. Since you can remove these braces while eating, you can eat whatever you want. Not only do you get to eat what you want, but you are able to brush and floss your teeth thoroughly without the restriction of traditional braces.

Lastly, ClearCorrect braces are often covered by insurance. Orthodontic treatment is typically covered by insurance because it promotes the health of the patient.
