How It Works
If you’re a good candidate for clear aligners, Dr. Rupi Buttar will take intraoral photos and digital x-rays, use a scanner or impressions to capture the shape of your teeth.
After Dr. Buttar has taken the necessary photos and x-rays she will submit your prescription to ClearCorrect®.
Wear your aligners
North Bay Dental will make a series of aligners customized to apply pressure to the teeth that you want to move.
Dr. Rupi Buttar will check your progress periodically and give you new sets of aligners. You’ll wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day, progressing through each step until your treatment is done.
How much do ClearCorrect® aligners cost?
The cost to patients is generally comparable to or cheaper than other orthodontic options, ranging from around $1,000 to $7,000 USD, depending on the complexity of treatment, your location, and other factors. Since every patient’s treatment is customized, your specific treatment plan can only be determined with a consultation at North Bay Dental.
Are ClearCorrect® aligners covered by dental insurance?
Many dental plans do include coverage for orthodontic appliances such as clear aligners. If you meet your insurance company’s eligibility requirements, they may cover a portion of the total treatment cost up to a lifetime maximum, which is typically between $1,000 to $3,000 USD. Dr. Buttar and your insurance company can provide more details.
Can I pay for ClearCorrect® aligners with an FSA or HSA?
Generally, yes. Funds from flex spending accounts (FSA) and health savings accounts (HSA) can be applied to orthodontic appliances like clear aligners.
Do I have to pay for everything up front?
Not necessarily. North Bay Dental offers monthly payment plans to help fit your budget.
How often should I wear aligners?
Wear aligners as directed by Dr. Rupi Buttar—usually two to three weeks per step, at least 22 hours per day. Take them out to eat and brush your teeth.
How long does treatment take?
This varies from patient to patient. Treatment can take anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on the complexity of the case.
How visible are clear aligners?
Clear aligners are completely transparent, which makes them much more discreet than metal braces. People usually don’t notice them. They’re not magic, however—you can see them at close range if you know what to look for.
Does ClearCorrect® treat patients directly?
No. ClearCorrect® manufactures aligners based on prescriptions from dentists and orthodontists. You and Dr. Buttar play the biggest role in ensuring the success of your treatment.
Does ClearCorrect® guarantee perfect results?
Most patients do experience significant improvement in their smiles, but it’s impossible to guarantee the outcome of any orthodontic treatment. Individual results may vary.
Will I need to wear a retainer after treatment?
To prevent relapse, Dr. Buttar usually prescribes a retainer after any orthodontic treatment. ClearCorrect® offers affordable, discreet clear retainers suitable for patients treated with clear aligners or traditional metal braces.
