Crooked, gapped, and misaligned teeth can affect the health and appearance of your smile.
Clear aligners like Invisalign® and ClearCorrect™ can discreetly straighten your teeth without bulky wires and brackets.
Dr. Jason Collier can develop a customized ClearCorrect treatment plan for Memphis, TN, patients to create a beautifully straight smile.
How Do Clear Aligners Work? By Gently Shifting Your Teeth
Aligners like Invisalign and ClearCorrect work by gently shifting your teeth into alignment over 8-14 months with proper wear. You will receive several sets of aligners that should be worn two weeks at a time and for at least 22 hours a day.
Why Do Patients Prefer Clear Aligners to Braces? They Are a Discreet and Comfortable Alternative
The clear plastic aligners fit perfectly over your teeth and are virtually undetectable while wearing.
Unlike the wires and brackets of traditional braces that can rub on your cheeks, aligners like Invisalign and ClearCorrect are made of smooth plastic, making them a more comfortable alternative.
Traditional braces are secured to your teeth and can only be removed by a trained orthodontist or dentist. While clear aligners need to be worn at least 22 hours a day, they can easily be removed while eating and cleaning your teeth.
Aligners are just as effective as traditional braces at correcting mild-to-moderate misalignment issues. Thanks to ClearCorrect engagers that add additional pressure, our dentist can achieve more complex tooth movement to address more severe misalignment cases than ever before.

The Cost of Not Getting Treatment Future Dental Work and a Higher Price Tag
Misalignment can make it difficult to floss and brush all surfaces of your teeth properly. Improper oral hygiene can lead to cavities, tooth loss, and more, which can have a major impact on your oral health and wallet.
A crooked smile can lead to excess wear on your teeth and result in chips, cracks, and added strain on your jaw muscles. Damaged teeth can lead to future dental work that can be more expensive than Invisalign treatment.
When your teeth are not properly aligned, your bite may not be either. A misaligned bite (malocclusion) can lead to temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), a painful condition that can take multiple years and treatments to resolve.

With proper wear, you can have a straighter smile in one year!
How Should I Care for My Aligners? Continue Good Oral Hygiene Habits
Brush and Floss
Continue to brush your teeth twice daily and floss once daily throughout treatment. Your Invisalign or ClearCorrect aligners can be removed during your oral care.
Clean Your Aligners
Clean your Invisalign or ClearCorrect aligners with the branded solution or a denture cleaner. You can also use a soft-bristle toothbrush and mild soap.
Keep Your Aligners Safe
One of the major benefits of these orthodontic solutions is that they are removable. However, this also makes them easier to damage or lose. Keep your clear aligners in a safe place whenever they are not being worn.
Contact Our Office
Contact our Memphis practice if you accidentally lose, misplace, or damage your aligners. Dr. Collier will advise you on next steps and determine if a new aligner needs to be made for you to stay on your treatment timeline.
