Best Candidates for aligners
ClearCorrect is a good choice when your teeth are crooked, out of alignment, or crowded. These aligners are especially effective if you have a serious overbite, rotated teeth, or excessive gaps. There are many treatments to enhance the spacing, alignment, and bite; however, ClearCorrect has additional benefits. The clear aligners make it hard for other people to see that you are wearing orthodontics. The aligners are also removable so they can be taken out when you clean your teeth, eat, and for special occasions. In comparison to Invisalign (a comparable system of clear aligners), ClearCorrect is made in the United States and is normally less costly. When you visit our office for a consultation, Dr. Tozzi can help answer all of your questions to find out whether ClearCorrect is the best option for your needs.
When you pick ClearCorrect, Dr. Tozzi will take digital x-rays of your jaw and teeth and impressions that'll be used to create your ClearCorrect aligners. After we get your aligners, our office will call you to schedule an appointment for your initial fitting. You can expect to schedule follow-up appointments every two weeks. During this time, Dr. Tozzi will assess your progress and issue replacement aligners as your teeth and bite gradually change. In the event you damage or lose an aligner, just call our office and we can have a new aligner created so you're able to continue treatment without having to wait until your next appointment. Based upon the position of your teeth and the amount of correction needed, your prescribed orthodontic care could take 12 – 24 months (about eight phases of therapy).
Dr. Tozzi will need to check your progress every two weeks to make adjustments as needed. It's also extremely important to keep your teeth and your ClearCorrect aligners clean so you don't develop tooth decay. Brushing your teeth, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash once you take out the aligners is a fantastic habit to build. You should also clean or rinse the aligners before placing them back into your mouth. You should also store your aligners in their protective case while eating to avoid losing them. Once your treatment is finished, you may have to wear a retainer to help keep your teeth from going back to their initial place. You should also continue to make yearly dental exams at Michaela Tozzi, DMD so Dr. Tozzi can monitor your teeth, alignment, and total dental health.
Our financial coordinator or another member of our team will go over price estimates during your initial consultation. We can also discuss the various payment methods we accept and provide information on low-interest medical financing. If you have dental insurance, we will contact your provider to review your policy to determine if your insurance covers any cost for orthodontics. From there, we can calculate your total bill.
