ClearCorrect tooth aligners are one of the more popular alternatives for those who find the idea of a mouthful of metal braces and brackets - though effective - too unattractive to commit to.
If you are a candidate for ClearCorrect you don't have to sacrifice your smile while straightening your teeth. ClearCorrect incorporates a series of invisible (clear) plastic aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth and are designed to move your teeth gradually into the desired position.
The ClearCorrect system, involves a detailed treatment plan that determines how each of your aligners will change throughout your program. When you begin treatment, you'll wear each set of aligners in approximately two-week increments. The aligners gently move your teeth into position, and at the end of each two-week period, you "graduate" to the next set of custom aligners. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will begin moving, little by little. And you don't have to wait until you complete treatment to see your smile change-you may start seeing positive changes early in the process. You will have occasional checkups-often as little as once every six weeks-in order to gauge your progress. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
THE ADVANTAGES OF CLEARCORRECT ALIGNERS
- Removable: So you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are no problem.
- Comfortable: Because it has no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor's office getting adjustments.
- Aesthetic: These aligners are clear and more aesthetically pleasing than conventional braces. Most people will not even notice that you are wearing any sort of dental appliance.
Our Patients Love Us!
Dr. Kim and his assistant were extremely kind and caring during my 87 year old mother's appointment today. Most importantly Dr. Kim thoroughly went over her X-ray, and laid out her options along with his honest recommendation.
I was very pleased with the service. I have been going to Ace Dental since I left the Army. I like that each visit I leave with a bag-o-stuff that includes a new toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, and floss!
All staff are so friendly and made me confortable. I love this dentist. in fact, i have been gone 3 dentist but other dentist said add a lot of thing, so I ask the Dr, but he said I'm young, so I dont need that.
Dr. Kim and his assistant Paula are great. Very friendly and accommodating, they were able to get me into an appointment right away. I had surgery with Dr. Kim, and everything went as smoothly as it could.
Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Not sure how you do it but the dental billing/insurance process is painless. Always confident in the work being done on my teeth and clearly understand what procedures are being performed.
I had an old crown which was repeatedly leaking even though I had paid multiple visits to my old dentist in Auburn. I was kinda afraid that my tooth condition was getting worse and affect adjacent teeth. After moving down to Federal Way, I found Dr. Paul Kim, and I finally got my crown fixed! Thank you! Dr. Kim!
