Supporting Dentists With a Best-In-Class Clear Aligner Solution
ClearCorrect offers easy-to-use software and high-quality materials
With 75% of the population suffering from malocclusion, the demand for esthetic dentistry is ever growing, and orthodontic clear aligners hold enormous potential. "When you look at the market demand, patients are becoming more aware of how their oral health and esthetics impact their general well-being, especially now with the ‘Zoom effect,'" says Christophe Carsault, vice president of sales and marketing for ClearCorrect North America. More dentists are also recognizing the potential in offering clear aligner therapy, and many are in search of a convenient end-to-end solution. Enter ClearCorrect™ clear aligners, the Straumann Group's clear aligner therapy brand.
During the past 60 years, the Straumann Group has developed a solid track record as a company that both offers best-in-class solutions and supports the development of dentists. Therefore, it is of no surprise that they have worked relentlessly to invest in and improve the ClearCorrect brand ever since its purchase in 2017. Part of this investment has been to achieve a more global footprint. To that end, the company has expanded its production capacity beyond the single production site that it previously relied on to include production sites around the world. "We have achieved our transformation phase," says Carsault. "This has greatly improved our capacity to serve our customers worldwide and allows our customers in the United States to experience faster turnaround times as well."
In addition to this global expansion, Clear-Correct has also developed an improved version of its software, which the company will release at the 2022 annual meeting of the American Association of Orthodontists in Miami, Florida. "From 2019 to the end of 2021, we made significant progress in our software management," explains Carsault. "Our general practitioner partners and orthodontist partners will find that ClearPilot 4.0 is an extremely efficient and user-friendly program that can aid in treating any kind of case." Relatedly, the company has also developed new partnerships, including one with 3Shape that facilitates a seamless connection between the ClearCorrect platform and the 3Shape TRIOS® intraoral scanners. That being said, ClearCorrect still remains an open platform that welcomes any kind of STL files.
With more than 45,000 customers now registered to use ClearCorrect aligners in North America, the company is striving to address dentists' biggest challenges. General practitioners must develop the necessary skills to effectively implement their chosen aligner solution. ClearCorrect's educational initiatives-which include online offerings as well as live courses and workshops–help dentists hone their skills in order to make excellent impressions for aligner fabrication, navigate the digital platform efficiently, and more.
Regarding patient satisfaction, delivery time is a significant factor. "When a patient is excited for a new smile, we need to start as soon as possible," says Carsault. For this reason, ClearCorrect is committed to being a company that is easy to collaborate with and will prioritize fast turnaround times.
ClearCorrect looks to provide dentists with not only a smooth process for treatment planning and delivery but also the highest quality aligner materials. Developed by Straumann-owned Bay Materials, ClearCorrect's ClearQuartz™ is a three-layer material that improves upon the company's previous single-layer materials, offering remarkable comfort, exceptional durability, optimal clarity, and extraordinary sustained force.
From improved data acquisition, simulation, and management to education, fast turnarounds on delivery worldwide, and even high-quality aligner materials, ClearCorrect is a best-in-class, end-to-end solution for clear aligner therapy, and it has the support of the entire Straumann Group ecosystem. "Ensuring that partner dentists will be supported by a network of other dentists is very important to us," emphasizes Carsault. "As a dentist-led company, ClearCorrect is how the Straumann Group is doing orthodontics."
