ClearCorrect Invisible Aligners
Orthodontic treatment using traditional metal brackets and wires is a thing of the past. Our dentist in Princeton is proud to offer clear aligner therapy for those patients that might be hesitant about going through traditional orthodontic treatment.
ClearCorrect clear aligners are transparent plastic trays that fit snugly over your teeth and gradually straighten them every two weeks. They’re made using the latest state-of-the-art technology and are a great alternative to Invisalign (Princeton, NJ) for our patients looking for a more affordable option.
How ClearCorrect Works to Straighten Your Smile
ClearCorrect is a type of clear orthodontic therapy that uses a series of digitally designed aligners. Each set of trays slightly varies in shape and form from the next – reflecting the alignment process of your teeth. The trays are rigid on the inside and fit snugly over your teeth, slowly moving them to their new positions when changed out as directed (usually every two weeks.) There are no brackets or wires to adjust!
How Long Does the Clear Braces Process Take?
Since ClearCorrect (like Invisalign) in Princeton, NJ uses digital mapping to plan out your treatment, Canal Vista Family Dental can provide you with a close estimate as to how long your teeth straightening process will take.
Dr. Bestandji will construct a treatment plan just for you. Each individual case is different, but most of our patients will be in ClearCorrect between 6-18 months. The number of aligners that are included in your treatment will determine how long it takes, as each pair is worn for about two weeks.
What to Expect
When you visit our Princeton dentist for an orthodontic consultation, we’ll take a series of digital images of your teeth, as well as digital photos and possibly some impressions. This information is sent to ClearCorrect labs, where your digital case is planned.
Once your treatment plan has been developed using all of the information on hand, you may be able to preview a digital simulation of what your treatment will look like, previewing the results before you even start.
Wear your clear orthodontic aligners as prescribed (usually 20+ hours per day) only taking them out to eat or when you brush and floss. We’ll make sure you know how to take the trays in and out and give you several pairs to take home with you. Wear them as directed and be sure not to change them out too soon.
You’ll stop by to see our Princeton dentist about every 6-8 weeks to ensure things are moving along properly and to bring your next several sets of aligners home.
Living with Invisible Braces
ClearCorrect makes your oral hygiene routine easier than ever. The trays are removable, so you can brush and floss like you normally would. Traditional braces trap food particles and plaque – something that you don’t have to worry about with removable aligners.
Plus, you’ll be able to enjoy some of your favorite snacks like gum, popcorn, and corn on the cob, because there are no metal appliances you have to worry about breaking. Just take out your trays and put the back in when you’re done!

Other Dental Services
Because most common dental problems are preventable, Dr. Bestandji opts to incorporate strategies that help our patients reduce the risk of tooth decay from a very early age. This may be through protective dental sealants, fluoride, or even ClearCorrect orthodontic trays to make it easier for you to keep your smile clean.
