Invisalign vs. ClearCorrect

Invisalign vs. ClearCorrect

With the amazing breakthroughs in dentistry, you can have so many options for your misaligned teeth. Read on to find out more about the two most popular clear aligner treatments:

Invisalign Overview

Invisalign, as the name suggests, are not visible and are tailor-made aligners that are swapped out every 2 to 3 weeks.

Our orthodontist near 85044 in Arizona will make the clear aligner trays with 3D imaging technology. We will be able to give you an estimate of treatment time, as every patient will have different dental misalignment issues. On average, Invisalign treatment takes around 6 to 12 months.

Invisalign Treatment Options:

Invisalign Full: This is the basic treatment. It aligns teeth with a series of removable, virtually invisible aligners for excellent results.

Invisalign Lite: This treatment offers the versatility needed to treat mild to moderate cases, Invisalign Lite treatment uses up to 14 stages of aligners with no clinical restrictions and includes a refinement in the treatment price.

Invisalign Express 10: A cost-effective solution for simpler orthodontic cases, Invisalign Express 10 treatment is appropriate for minor crowding, spacing, and as a pre-cursor to restorative or cosmetic treatments.

Invisalign Express 5, Invisalign i7: The cheapest option of treatment is this type. It is suitable for minor crowding, spacing, and orthodontic relapse treatments. Invisalign Express 5 treatment utilizes around five or fewer sets of aligners, and Invisalign i7 treatment uses seven or fewer sets of aligners.

Clear Correct Overview

Clear Correct has gained momentum in the past decade with its introduction. ClearCorrect also uses aligner trays to straighten teeth.

Clear Correct Has Three Treatment Options:

Limited 6 – This kind of aligners work to treat the full arch, not just from the first premolar to the first premolar.

Limited 12 – This type offers a further range of treatment with 12 sets of aligners.

Unlimited – This type gives your dentist to work with as many sets of aligners as are needed to adjust the teeth as needed. This treatment takes around three years, with many sets of aligners.

Why Choose Invisalign?

Although both Invisalign and ClearCorrect will help you achieve a beautiful smile, here are some reasons why we prefer Invisalign:

  1. Both treatments have comparable costs.
  2. Invisalign has been around almost ten years longer than ClearCorrect.
  3. Invisalign aligners are slightly thicker and more durable than ClearCorrect aligners.
  4. ClearCorrect uses a plastic material while Invisalign uses a more comfortable patented thermoplastic material that is specially designed to speed treatment time.
