Clear Correct vs. Invisalign®

Updated: Nov 26, 2023

Are crooked teeth knocking your confidence? Does the idea of traditional metal braces put you off straightening your teeth? Today, more people are considering clear aligners, and some of the best known are Invisalign® and Clear Correct. Clear aligners offer a more discreet straightening treatment than braces. Since Invisalign® was first introduced to the market in 2000, it’s paved the way for other brands like Clear Correct that offer a similar treatment.


But, which is the right treatment for you?


Clear Correct vs. Invisalign®


Both Invisalign® and Clear Correct offer a number of benefits. In many cases, they can be used to help fix overbites, underbites, crowded teeth, gaps and rotated or crooked teeth.


When you visit us for a consultation, we will assess your situation and make a recommendation based on your unique needs.


Both Invisalign® and Clear Correct are virtually invisible. Made of clear plastic, the aligners can be removed and cleaned and are custom fit to your teeth. Both aligners must be worn all day, other than when you eat or brush and floss. Both adjust your teeth in small increments.

The Treatment


Both Invisalign® and Clear Correct® provide you with a series of clear aligners.


At the end of the day the most important consideration is the Clear Correct or Invisalign® provider you select to manage your orthodontics. This is likely to have a huge impact on your overall result. A good analogy to consider is a hairdresser using a particular brand of dye to highlight your hair. The dye itself a tool. The tool is important to get the necessary result, however it is the skill, knowledge and experience of your hairdresser that will be the most important deciding factor in getting you an amazing result. The same is true of dental professionals and aligner systems.


Choosing a specialist Orthodontist with plenty of knowledge and experience in cases similar to yours – and experience in using clear aligner systems such as Clear correct® or Invisalign® will ensure that you get the best result possible.
