ClearCorrect Aligners – What They Are and How They Work

ClearCorrect Aligners – What They Are and How They Work

Blog Single

Having beautiful, straight teeth can do wonders for your confidence and will make you eager to show your stunning smile to the world. However, the work that it takes to get straight teeth hasn’t always been the most appealing. Traditional metal braces are very noticeable which may deter some individuals from fulfilling their desire to have straight teeth. Fortunately, ClearCorrect clear aligners mean that you can achieve straighter teeth with the use of nearly invisible clear aligners; most people won’t even know they’re there!

ClearCorrect aligners are a great alternative to traditional braces and are extremely easy to use. First, you’ll want to be evaluated by a dental specialist to determine if you’re a good candidate for the aligners. Next, your dental team will take x-rays, photos, impressions or dental scans, and anything else needed to ensure that your aligners are a perfect fit for your teeth. Each aligner is custom-made for each patient’s unique treatment needs. When worn, the aligners will apply slight pressure to your teeth, causing them to shift over time so that you’ll have straighter teeth.

The key to ensuring the most effective treatment possible is following all instructions, wearing the ClearCorrect aligners as directed, and returning to your dental studio for follow-up appointments. At Cakmes Dental Studio, we recommend wearing the aligners for at least 22 hours each day, and removing them only when eating. The more you wear them, the greater effect they will have on shifting your teeth. Failure to wear the ClearCorrect aligners for the appropriate times could cause your treatment to last much longer, and you could risk any progress already made. Throughout the entire process, you’ll need to check in with your dental specialist to receive new aligners along the way. Each new aligner will mean you’re one step close to achieving beautiful, straight teeth. 

ClearCorrect invisible aligners straighten teeth invisibly, making them an ideal option for those who don’t want traditional metal braces. There’s no better time to get started with ClearCorrect, and Cakmes Dental Studio is here to help. We’ll work with you throughout the entire process to make sure you receive the straight teeth and stunning smile you’ve always wanted. To schedule an initial evaluation, contact us today.

Why Daily Brushing and Flossing is So Important

Blog Single

Maintaining proper dental hygiene is essential for keeping your teeth, gums, and mouth in great condition and free from disease. Oftentimes, we may underestimate how much of a role our oral health plays in contributing to our body’s overall health. One of the best ways to promote good dental hygiene is through daily brushing and flossing. These two relatively quick tasks can make a lifetime of difference in keeping your oral health in the best possible shape.

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that all adults brush their teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each time. The first step to correct brushing is using the right toothbrush and being sure to replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months or when the bristles become frayed. Brushing your teeth removes plaque from your teeth which, if not removed, can quickly lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Proper brushing also prevents any cavities from forming which can cause significant damage if ignored. From a more social perspective, failing to brush your teeth will lead to bad breath in no time, making you less confident interacting and talking with others.

While flossing plays just as important of a role in maintaining proper dental hygiene as brushing, the ADA estimates that only 32% of adults floss every day. Working the floss in between each of your teeth allows you to reach areas where food is more likely to get stuck and areas where your toothbrush cannot reach. Flossing helps prevent bacteria growth, especially at the gum line where there is a greater possibility for infection and irritation. 

Preventative dental hygiene is the best way to keep your teeth, gums, and mouth healthy. Not to mention, it also saves time, money, and any pain that you may experience as a result of putting off those key daily healthy oral habits, like brushing and flossing. 

In conjunction with daily brushing and flossing, routine dental checkups help keep your oral health on the right track.
