Clear Correct Q & A

What is ClearCorrect?

ClearCorrect is an orthodontic system that Dr. Ego-Osuala uses to straighten your teeth. It's a series of custom-made, clear, removable trays, which gradually move your teeth to correct your smile and elicit a new, refreshed look.

ClearCorrect treatment is available for both adults and teens. It’s also a viable option for children who don’t have all of their molars, as well as senior citizens who need more complicated work done on their teeth.

Dr. Ego-Osuala uses ClearCorrect to fix various orthodontic conditions, including:

  • Spacing issues and crowded teeth
  • Both Over and Underbites
  • Crooked or rotated teeth

How does ClearCorrect work?

Dr. Ego-Osuala takes impressions, pictures, and X-rays of your mouth and sends them, along with your dental records, to the ClearCorrect laboratory where a technician creates an exact 3D model of your teeth.

The team at ClearCorrect then uses the most up-to-date digital mapping and molding technology to create a complete treatment plan for the gradual realignment and repositioning of your teeth. That enables you to view a computerized representation of your teeth before and after the treatment.

For ClearCorrect to work correctly, it’s essential that you wear your aligners all the time except when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
Dr. Ego-Osuala checks on your progress periodically and gives you the next set of aligners. Noticeable progress is evident each time you get a new aligner set.
Treatment time varies between one and two years, depending on your condition and degree of misalignment.

Why choose ClearCorrect over traditional braces?

Traditional metal braces are attached to your teeth with dental cement, and wires are strung from tooth to tooth, often hindering your ability to brush, floss, eat and speak. The wires are adjusted periodically to promote the necessary movement of the teeth.  

By contrast, ClearCorrect aligners don’t impact your daily routine, are custom fitted to your teeth, and are barely noticeable. They're an irritation- and discomfort-free treatment.

Additionally, ClearCorrect aligners don’t hurt the inside of your mouth or stain your teeth. Since you remove the aligners when you eat, you can eat chips, nuts, and other foods not allowed with traditional braces.
ClearCorrect allows you to avoid the higher risk of tooth decay and you don’t need to stop everything to clean out your braces each time you eat.
