Well these days both kids and adults may be able to get their teeth straightened without any metal braces or headgear. It’s called Clear Correct® and it's available in many general dental offices as well as orthodontics only practices.
Panama City dentist Dr. Herb Salisbury is a general dentist who is offering his patients the new Clear Correct treatment. "Clear Correct uses a series of clear aligners that quickly and gently move your teeth into the desired position," says Dr. Salisbury. "They are virtually invisible unless you get up real close to the person wearing them."
Some of the benefits of this treatment over traditional braces are:
• Aligners can be removed to eat, brush and floss
• Your teeth move little by little
• Results occur often in 6 months to 1 year
Not all patients are candidates for Clear Correct which is why most dentists who offer the procedure will give patients a complimentary consultation to see if the treatment is right for them.
"My patients tell me they really love not having metal wires or bands in their mouths," says Dr. Salisbury, "but the best part is that most people won't notice you're in treatment."
