We wish you good luck with your Christmas shopping, and we hope you don’t forget one of the most important people on your list — yourself. If you have been wishing your teeth were straight, then it’s time to find out if ClearCorrect could give you that gift.
ClearCorrect has been referred to as “clear braces” by some people although it doesn’t use brackets or wires. We’ve seen what ClearCorrect has done for many patients at our dentist office in New Orleans, LA, and it may be able to help you, too.
Why Straight Teeth Are Important
Having straight teeth is good for you both mentally and physically. We will start by explaining the mental benefits.
We have had several patients visit our office who were embarrassed by their smiles. For some of them, this was because they had crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or gaps between their teeth.
Throughout their treatment with ClearCorrect, they could see their smiles changing. As their teeth moved closer to a straight position, many of them became more confident as well.
By the time they finished their treatment, they were proud of their smiles. This came across in how they spoke to us and how they carried themselves. It’s that kind of confidence that could make a difference during a date, a job interview, or a meeting with a client or customer.
Having straight teeth will improve the appearance of your smile, but it has health benefits as well. This is another reason we use ClearCorrect at our New Orleans dentist office.
When your teeth are straight, they are easier to brush and the floss. When they are easier to brush and floss, you can remove more bacteria and plaque before you experience tooth decay, gum disease, or other oral health issues.
Straight teeth both improve your smile and make it easier for you to keep smiling.

The Advantages Of ClearCorrect
Traditional braces have been used for a long time to straighten teeth. They will certainly work. However, you may find that ClearCorrect has some worthwhile advantages if you have mild or moderate alignment issues with your teeth.
Here are three quick reasons why ClearCorrect may be a better option for you:
Braces work. No one will dispute that. Most people would also agree that braces can be painful, too.
When you have brackets and wires pulling and pushing your teeth, you will feel it. You also will feel it each time your braces are adjusted throughout the two years or more you could be wearing them.
On top of that, the brackets can scratch the inside of your mouth. The wire also has the potential to poke into your cheeks, lips, or gums if it breaks.
Let’s compare that to ClearCorrect, which uses clear trays that are made of plastic. These trays are smooth, so there are no edges to scratch the inside of your mouth or small pieces that could break.
When you change trays, you will feel some gentle pressure as they push on your teeth, but it’s a different kind of pressure than you would feel with braces.
You can’t really hide metal braces. Some people feel self-conscious about wearing them. For many adults, in particular, the thought of wearing braces in personal and professional settings is enough to discourage them from starting orthodontic treatment.
You can get ceramic braces. These are less obvious than metal braces, but they are still visible.
ClearCorrect uses clear aligners. They are almost like transparent mouthguards that fit over your teeth. They blend when they are placed over your teeth. In fact, most people won’t realize you are wearing anything on your teeth.
If you are looking for a discreet way to straighten your smile, then talk to Dr. Tripp about whether ClearCorrect will work for you.
A third reason to consider ClearCorrect is convenience.
With braces, you have to wear them 24 hours a day, every day of your treatment. You can’t take them off to eat. You can’t take them off to brush your teeth and floss.
As a result, you may have to give up some of your favorite snacks while you have braces. You also may have to learn some new techniques for keeping your teeth clean.
With ClearCorrect, you won’t have those concerns. You can remove your aligners during meals, so you can keep eating the foods that you want to eat. Then, you can leave them out to brush and floss your teeth before putting them back in your mouth.
