ClearCorrect , LLC is a company that develops clear, custom, removable dental braces (known as clear aligners) used by dentists and orthodontists to straighten patients' teeth. The devices move the teeth a little bit at a time, eventually resulting in straight teeth. Established in 2006, the Round Rock, Texas based company distributes their product throughout the United States and in 2011 was named the fastest-growing health company in America by Inc. magazine.
What is Clear Correct?
Once a doctor evaluates a patient for clear aligners and determines that the patient is a candidate, impressions and photos are taken and sent to ClearCorrect to start the process of creating custom made aligners for that patient.
ClearCorrect then takes these impressions and scans them into a computer software program that creates a 3D model of the patient’s teeth. These computer images are manipulated until the desire position is acheived
The doctor then reviews these images online and an estimate on the number of steps require to acheive the prescribed position is determined. Once approved, a series of plastic aligners are created for each stage of the patient’s treatment and shipped to the treating doctor in phases.
How Does Clear Correct Work?
- A patient undergoing treatment with ClearCorrect is instructed to wear the aligners 22 hours a day. They are removed when eating or drinking and to brush and floss your teeth.
- The patient sees the providing dentist every six weeks and is given two sets of aligners at a time. Each set is worn for three weeks and the patient is instructed when to change to the next aligner. The patient typically feels significant pressure when starting a new aligner and the pressure gradually subsides as the aligner is worn over the three-week span.
- When treatment is completed, the patient is given the final set of aligners to be worn as retainers. Retainers are recommended to be worn for the remainder of the patient's life, usually at night time, to help maintain the final result of treatment. The retainers can be easily replaced if worn out or lost.
