San Diego Dentist Discusses Benefits of ClearCorrect™ Teeth Aligners
Dr. Cathy Santone explains how ClearCorrect™ teeth aligners can help patients discreetly straighten their teeth.
San Diego, CA – Dr. Cathy Santone of Encinitas Cosmetic Dentistry is known for adopting innovative technology into her San Diego dental practice. The ClearCorrect™ orthodontic system is a primary example of the state-of-the-art options she provides to patients. The system’s clear aligner trays are designed to gradually shift and straighten teeth, and Dr. Santone says many patients prefer ClearCorrect™ treatment over metal braces because the transparent aligners are scarcely visible and can be easily removed.
Dr. Santone recently discussed the advantages of using ClearCorrect™ in her latest blog post, titled: “Benefits of Teeth Straightening with ClearCorrect™.” According to the San Diego cosmetic dentist, there are several benefits to using the inconspicuous dental aligners. For instance, patients may require less office visits throughout treatment since the alignment trays typically require less upkeep than metal braces. Another benefit is that patients can continue to brush and floss their teeth without any interruption since the aligners are removable and not bonded to their teeth. This characteristic also helps patients conveniently eat and drink without worrying about getting food stuck in-between their metal braces.
If patients are interested in the advanced alignment system, Dr. Santone conducts an oral examination to evaluate if ClearCorrect™ is a suitable treatment option. Next, she creates digital impressions of their teeth with her 3M™ True Definition Scanner and sends the digital images to a ClearCorrect™ lab. Once the lab receives the patient’s dental impressions, a sequence of customized aligner trays will be designed and produced. Over time, patients can achieve straighter teeth by replacing each aligner with the next one in their sequence for a specified amount of time.
Ultimately, Dr. Santone is excited about offering ClearCorrect™ and says she is committed to increasing awareness about alternative orthodontic treatments. By providing an assortment of general, progressive, and cosmetic dentistry procedures at her practice, she says her ultimate goal is to help patients achieve healthy teeth and beautiful smiles.
