Now you can easily transition your patients from traditional wires & brackets to clear aligners or retainers without risking relapse. Scan your patient's teeth--wires and all--and ClearCorrect's technicians will digitally erase the brackets from the 3D model.

Here are some doctor reviews of this feature:

"In the past, in order to get the most accurate clear retainers for our braces patients, impressions were made immediately after the brackes were removed, and retainers made that same day. The patients were excited to have the braces removed, but impressions are kind of a bummer for the patient and our team. Now, ClearCorrect allows us to scan with braces on, and have clear retainers ready for the patient's big day. They turned a busy and uncomfortable braces removal visit into the celebration it should be!" - Dr. Matthew Fortna

"Today I successfully used ClearCorrect's Digital Bracket Removal Process for my patient wearing metal braces. I was impressed how quickly I was able to issue her first 2 steps of aligners upon completing the digital removal of her braces.

Additionally, I was extremely happy about how accurate the aligners fit, and the patient was ecstatic to see how easy it is for her to complete her orthodontic treatment with ClearCorrect. This digital option allows my practice to offer better patient management, as it involves just one short 'scanning' visit prior to starting aligner treatment." - Dr. Jason Pireh, Smart Dental
