Clear Braces in Batavia
Dr. John C. Koechley, a dentist in Batavia, IL, recommends Clear Correct for adults and some teenage patients who are hesitant or unwilling to commit to traditional braces. The concept behind clear braces is simple. Custom made from high-grade plastic, the trays are virtually invisible. After a comprehensive dental exam and consultation, a series of trays are designed according to the patient's alignment needs. Each tray is worn for approximately two weeks as the teeth gradually shift into position.
Clear braces can be removed for up to two hours each day, which allows for daily brushing and flossing. They also allow the wearer to continue to enjoy their favorite foods and eliminate many of the dietary restrictions that are often necessary with traditional braces.
Who Should Consider Clear Correct Clear Braces?
Clear Correct is the perfect solution for adults and teenagers who prefer a discreet and less invasive alternative to braces. After a comprehensive dental exam, Dr. Koechley can determine whether this treatment is appropriate. Most adults in good health are generally good candidates. In addition to being more discreet and easier to manage than braces, the length of treatment with Clear Correct is often shorter, with an average of 15 months. Candidates for Clear Correct must be able to commit to wearing the tray for at least 22 hours every day, and maintain regular follow-up appointments and check-ups with their dentist.
