ClearCorrect Orthodontic Treatment by Dr. Lis Bradley
Brentwood dentist Dr. Lisbeth Bradley is a certified ClearCorrect orthodontic treatment provider. Learn how this system improves smiles.
Orthodontic treatment is a great way to conservatively improve the aesthetics of your smile and promote oral health. Teeth that are properly spaced and aligned are easier to keep clean when brushing and flossing. Correcting tooth crowding eliminates areas where food particles can accumulate and lead to plaque and tartar buildup.
We offer orthodontic treatment with the ClearCorrect system. This system uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually guide teeth into their proper position.
The path to a beautiful smile begins with an evaluation. If ClearCorrect is right for you, Dr. Lisbeth Bradley, a certified ClearCorrect provider, will take photos, X-rays and impressions of your teeth and submit this information to ClearCorrect. Their dental lab will make your custom aligners, and Dr. Bradley will manage your treatment.
You will receive a series of aligners at each orthodontic checkup. You wear them day and night, removing them before meals and to perform oral hygiene. As you progress through your series of aligners, you will notice your teeth moving into their prescribed positions.
ClearCorrect offers numerous benefits. They are practically invisible when worn. Unlike conventional braces with brackets and arch wires, there are no dietary restrictions. Eat all the chewy, sticky, hard foods you like, because the aligners are removed before meals. You also won’t require any specialized appliances such as proxy brushes or floss threaders for oral hygiene.
Once treatment is complete, Dr. Bradley will prescribe a retainer to wear. Your retainer will be worn constantly at first, and then gradually scaled back over time. You should continue to wear your retainer nightly at least a few nights per week after your prescribed retention phase has ended to prevent your teeth from shifting.
