Are your teeth crooked or crowded? Do you wish for a straighter, healthier smile? Dr. Laney Schuman may recommend ClearCorrect in Granite City, Illinois. ClearCorrect is a brand of clear aligners. These custom-made trays fit snuggly, slipping over the teeth to straighten them over time. Because ClearCorrect is made from tight-fitting aligners, they are best suited for adults and teenagers. A child’s teeth are still growing, so our dentist will have to use a different method to straighten them.

If you choose ClearCorrect, our dentist will take photos, X-rays, and impressions of your teeth and submit them to ClearCorrect. A series of aligners that is customized to you will be constructed. These aligners will gently straighten your teeth over time. Our dentist will check the progress of your teeth and give you the next set of aligners every four to six weeks. Wear your aligners at least 22 hours every day. ClearCorrect are nearly invisible, so most people will not even notice that you are straightening your teeth. The aligners are removable, so you can continue to eat all of your favorite foods. Because they are removable, you can remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth with ease.
