ClearCorrect Aligners in Grand Junction, CO
ClearCorrect aligners are an effective and discreet orthodontic treatment option that are worn comfortably over your teeth to continuously adjust alignment and spacing.
ClearCorrect aligners are custom-made using models of both your current teeth and the end result you hope to achieve. With ClearCorrect aligners, you will switch to new aligners about every two weeks with each set shifting the teeth slightly—this continues until you have achieved your final results.
You remove the ClearCorrect aligners for eating, drinking and cleaning only. At first, they will feel very tight, but they will begin to loosen and feel more comfortable after a few days. You may also experience temporary change in speech as you get use to the new retainers.
