Greetings Marrero, LA! Welcome back to the ongoing dental blog of Lapalco Family Dental. In today’s post we’re going to have the first of two posts on our options for short-term adult orthodontics. Adult orthodontics, also called adult braces, are a great way to straighten crooked teeth.
Adult orthodontics can be used to correct a variety of issues with your smile. Adult orthodontics can close gaps in your teeth, separate crowded teeth, straighten crooked teeth, or correct issues with misaligned teeth. But many adults are hesitant to commit to adult braces.
Many adults dislike the idea of wearing metal brackets and wires in their teeth. They believe that wearing braces will make them look immature or even inexperienced when they’re in the workplace. Older teenagers have the same issue, they can’t imagine wearing braces in high school or college.
But at Lapalco Family Dental in Marrero, LA, we have solution for these concerns. We offer the ClearCorrect system of adult orthodontics. Instead of traditional metal brackets and wires, ClearCorrect uses a system of transparent and comfortable aligners. It’s comparable but more comfortable than the Invisalign system of adult orthodontics. You don’t have to worry about the irritation to your gums that can be caused by metal wires and brackets.
ClearCorrect uses a series of aligners. You wear each aligner for a couple of weeks, then graduate to the next set of aligners. Your entire treatment is mapped out with special software, allowing us to show you what your smile will look like before you even begin treatment! Treatment with ClearCorrect also takes less time on average than traditional adult braces; that means you save time and money on the expense of appointments!
ClearCorrect is also incredibly discreet; our patients tell us that most people don’t even notice that they’re wearing the aligners. Even better, if you need to have a photo taken or appear in a wedding, you can remove the aligner. That means you never have to worry about anyone ever criticizing you for wearing braces. That also means that you don’t ever have to worry about appearing immature or inexperienced in the workplace.
ClearCorrect also means the freedom to eat the foods you love. Traditional braces can make it extremely difficult to eat your favorite foods. You have to worry about foods that can get caught in your wires, or even foods that can damage the brackets of your braces. Certain foods like crusty breads can even knock the brackets off of your teeth. That hurts!
With ClearCorrect, you simply take out the aligner to eat. That means you don’t have to worry about sticking to a strict diet. It puts well-cooked steak, crusty bread, and even chewing foods back on the menu!
ClearCorrect works for many people; we have used ClearCorrect to help business professionals, students, teachers, and other people concerned about their appearance. With ClearCorrect you can have a brand new smile; you’ll finally have the confidence you need to smile and show your teeth!
