What is the Clear Correct System?

ClearCorrect is an affordable clear aligner system used to straighten teeth as an alternative to traditional braces. Similar to other clear aligner brands (like Invisalign) available to certified dentist or orthodontist certified to offer them to their patients. Clear Correct straightens teeth using a series of clear, custom – made, removable aligners that gradually move teeth a little bit at a time, correcting the teeth and smile.

How it works?

We’ll make a series of aligners customized to apply pressure to the teeth that you want to move.

Your progress will be checked periodically and you will be given a new set of aligners.

ClearCorrect aligners should be worn for at least 22 hours per day, except when eating and drinking and brushing and flossing. Designed with Aesthetics in mind the aligners are barely noticeable and will not impact your daily activities.

How much do ClearCorrect aligners cost?

ClearCorrect is a very affordable aligner system, the cost depends on how many aligners are needed to achieve an optimum result, as well as the complexity of treatment, your location, and other factors. We offer a gap free and obligation free consultation for case analysis, and a at presentation of the case cost and length of treatment will be discussed in detail.

Are ClearCorrect aligners covered by dental insurance?

Many dental plans do include coverage for orthodontic appliances such as clear aligners. If you meet your insurance company’s eligibility requirements, they may cover a portion of the total treatment cost up to a lifetime maximum.

Do I have to pay for everything up front?

Not necessarily. At Morphett Vale Dental Care we have liaised with multiple financial companies in order to offer monthly payment plans to help fit your budget. A 25% deposit is required upon approval and acceptance of the case.

How often should I wear aligners?

Wear aligners as directed by your doctor—usually two to three weeks per step, at least 22 hours per day. The only time you take them out is to eat and brush and floss your teeth.

How long does treatment take?

This varies from patient to patient, depending on the complexity and severity of the case. Treatment can take anywhere from a few months to a few years. However, this will be discussed with you prior starting treatment.

How visible are clear aligners?

Clear aligners are completely transparent, which makes them much more discreet than metal braces. People usually don’t notice them. They’re not invisible magic, which means—you can see them at close range if you know what to look for.

Does ClearCorrect guarantee perfect results?

Most patients do experience significant improvement in their smiles, but it’s impossible to guarantee the outcome of any orthodontic treatment. Your results may vary, depending on the severity of the case.

Will, I need to wear a retainer after treatment?

To prevent relapse, we usually prescribe a retainer after any orthodontic treatment. ClearCorrect offers affordable, discreet clear retainers suitable for patients treated with clear aligners or traditional metal braces. We strongly recommend wearing your retainers every night for as, long as you want straight teeth.

The women at this practice are phenomenal. I have had fear of the dentist my entire life due to a traumatic experience as a four year old. I finally bit the bullet last month and went to see Karen the hygienist and she made me feel so comforted. Then I met Erika the dentist and she was wonderful also. Yesterday I had restorative work done and for the first time in my life I wasn’t nervous about going to the dentist. I was so relaxed the entire time. Erika has such a calming, relaxed and professional presence. She continually asked if I was ok through each process and I honestly can’t thank her and her team enough. They’ve changed my life in the sense where I no longer feel scared. I actually can’t wait to go back and have my routinely hygiene appointment. WHAT?! ????

If you’re looking for a new dentist, I can’t recommend this one enough. It’s been a while since I’ve been to a dentist and as such I wasn’t very confident finding somewhere new. However the team here have been absolutely incredible. Kind and happy to explain the process, including prices and health fund contributions. Excellent dental facilities and a comfortable waiting room. I’ve seen they also have online booking options, which seems very convenient. Thank you to all the team today for making my first appointment in a long time an enjoyable one.

ClearCorrect The Braces Alternative FAQ’s

Clear Correct are clear plastic aligners that patients wear in a series to achieve their desired result.

Each new aligner is designed to move teeth slightly over the course of several months to a couple of years, depending on the level of crookedness or crowding.

Patients will first get an impression of their teeth, and a mold will be made from that impression. Aligners are designed to fit over or “snap on” to the teeth, much like a custom mouthguard might (except much lighter and thinner!).

ClearCorrect aligners are made from a polyurethane resin that leads its class in stress retention, impact and crack resistance, overall clarity and stain resistance.

In other words, when cared for properly, ClearCorrect aligners are nearly invisible for the length of treatment.

Every patient will have a different treatment time, as everyone’s mouth is different, as well as everyone’s goals being different.

Some minor crowding cases can be finished in 4-8 months, while other patients may need to wear their aligners for up to two years.

This treatment time is consistent with fixed braces (and sometimes faster) and patients always get the best results when they adhere to their treatment plan properly.

For the best results and to finish treatment within the estimated treatment time, patients should wear their aligners at least 22 hours a day. The only times they should be taken out is to play sport, eat and brush and floss your teeth.

Patients typically get a new set of aligners every 2-4 weeks, depending on their treatment schedule.

Whenever there is something new is in the mouth such as braces, a new mouth guard, retainers like ClearCorrect, a dull ache or tenderness during the first day or two wearing a new aligner is not uncommon.

This minor discomfort is normal and shouldn’t last too long, usually a few days until you get used to the new position your teeth are moving in to.

Patients can take an over-the-counter pain reliever and eat softer foods during this time.

ClearCorrect aligners are easy to clean, and it is important to do this every day. We advise patients that when you brush your teeth, take a few seconds to also scrub your aligners with cool water, a little non-abrasive toothpaste and your toothbrush.

This step will help keep your aligners fresh and clear.

Never soak your aligners in hot or warm water as this can warp the plastic and make them fit incorrectly. Which would have an impact on the end result.

If your insurance has an orthodontic benefit, you may be eligible for coverage. If you are in doubt just give us or your private health provider a call to ask.
