Can I get braces as an adult?

Patients interested in straightening their smile without traditional metal braces may have heard that there are a variety of clear braces and retainers in Encinitas, CA for them to consider. No longer do patients require extensive time with metal brackets and wires covering their smiles. Now, with Dr. Claudia B. Cortadi and her team at Ablantis Dental, patients can achieve their dream smile with ClearCorrect braces—as a teenager or as an adult!

What is ClearCorrect?

Dr. Claudia B. Cortadi describes ClearCorrect as a clear aligner therapy option for straightening the teeth within the smile. Mild to moderate malocclusion can be addressed successfully with this treatment when patients comply with treatment instructions. The trays used are made of a clear plastic that is comfortable to wear and fits firmly over the teeth in the dental arch. Gentle forces push the teeth into proper alignment when patients wear their trays as directed.

Am I a candidate for ClearCorrect treatment in Encinitas, CA?

To determine candidacy for ClearCorrect treatment, patients will first start with an evaluation with the team at Ablantis Dental. Dr. Claudia B. Cortadi will ensure the patient’s smile is free from cavities and disease, and then will assess the alignment of the teeth. Patients with severe misalignment may still be referred to a traditional orthodontist for braces as ClearCorrect and other tray aligner treatments are designed for those with mild to moderate misalignment.

How much is ClearCorrect treatment?

The cost of ClearCorrect treatment varies depending on a variety of factors. First, patients with dental insurance may get a portion of their treatment costs covered with benefits, lowering the out-of-pocket costs. The severity of the alignment and compliance will also affect the total cost for treatment. If patients do not comply with treatment and need additional trays made to get back on track, there will be added costs. At Ablantis Dental, we are also pleased to provide patients with several different payment options to make the cost of treatment easier for those on a tighter budget. Payment plans and financing solutions are readily available upon request.

How are the ClearCorrect aligner trays made?

When patients decide to move forward with ClearCorrect treatments, they will undergo a series of digital scans, photographs, and x-rays of the teeth. These are for the dentist’s records and are also sent off to the ClearCorrect laboratory to fabricate the trays. Patients will return to the dental office approximately a week or two later when their trays are completed to pick them up. Our team educates patients on how to use and care for the trays for successful results by the end of their treatment.
