McKinney ClearCorrect

Straighter Teeth. No Metal.

Dr. Zack Hegazin can help patients achieve a beautiful and straight smile using ClearCorrect as a discreet, more comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces. This orthodontic treatment uses a series of clear aligner trays made from BPA-free Zendura® plastic. Each tray is designed to fit precisely over your top and bottom teeth to correct bite disorders and shift the teeth into proper alignment.

Because the trays are removable, patients can eat without fear of damaging brackets or arch wires as well as effectively maintain their oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly. Compared to other aligner systems, ClearCorrect proudly makes each and every aligner in the United States.

Are You a Good Candidate for ClearCorrect?

The best candidates for ClearCorrect are patients with mild to moderate dental misalignment and jaw placement issues, such as:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbite
  • Under bite
  • Open bite
  • Cross bite
  • Overly crowded teeth

For patients with more severe dental misalignments, traditional metal braces may be recommended to help achieve cosmetic goals. During an initial consultation, Dr. Zack Hegazin will perform a thorough evaluation using X-rays and impressions to determine which orthodontic treatment is best suited for your unique needs. If you are a good candidate for ClearCorrect, he can send the impressions to a ClearCorrect lab to design your custom-made aligner trays. The fabrication of the trays can take anywhere from two to three weeks.

How ClearCorrect Works

Compared to conventional orthodontic treatments, ClearCorrect offers an innovative solution to achieving a straighter smile. While traditional braces involve brackets, arch wires, and ligature elastics secured to the front of the teeth, ClearCorrect provides a series of clear aligners designed to apply mild pressure.

Each tray should be worn at least 22 hours a day consecutively for two weeks before progressing to the next. Dr. Hegazin will monitor your results periodically to ensure your teeth are responding well to the aligners. Fresh impressions will be taken and a new set of aligners are provided every few weeks. Depending on the severity of your dental misalignment, treatment can generally be completed in just six to 12 months. For patients seeking a quicker alternative to straightening their smile, we also offer other orthodontic options.

Does Insurance Cover Orthodontic Treatment?

Although many insurance companies provide orthodontic coverage—especially for younger patients—there can be limitations on how much they will cover. To help alleviate any out-of-pocket costs you may incur, we accept financing through CareCredit® in addition to offering in-house payment plans. We never want cost to prevent you from receiving the care you need and from achieving the smile of your dreams.
