How does the ClearCorrect™ system work?
Your treatment process at Summit Dental Center will involve x-rays and impressions of your teeth. Next, we will create 3D models of your teeth and design a treatment plan specifically for your needs.
What type of follow-up does the ClearCorrect™ system require?
Follow-up appointments will continue to verify the progress of your teeth and provide the next set of clear aligners.
