The Orthodontist: The best orthodontic results will be achieved with the best orthodontist and not the method he\she uses to get your there. There are many methods, materials and techniques. Find an orthodontist that comes highly recommended and go for a consultation (or two if necessary). Then discuss options, timeframes, goals and fees.

Clear Correct?: If you are referring to clear correct, that is a brand of clear aligner therapy. A competitor to invisalign, the company that basically started the clear aligner trend in orthodontic treatment (different than the standard wires, brackets and bands).

It works well: If your question is, "does clear aligner orthodontic treatment work?", the answer is yes ... Usually. It cannot do everything regular braces can do, but for a majority of cases it is effective. Most patients say it is more comfortable than having braces, but in my experience treatment takes longer, so there are tradeoffs. The two major brands currently are clearcorrect and invisalign.

Not in USA: Clearpath appears to a clear aligner system available in asia. There are numerous versions of similar systems available in different regions. There are certainly some significant differences in most of these products compared to invisalign. Explore them with your licensed orthodontist.

We dont use it: We do, however, use invisalign if that is any help.

Clear answer: In the hands of a qualified university trained orthodontic specialist, who does malocclusion correction exclusively (therefore the best training and experience), braces are more than 90% effective, but are more visible. Clear aligners average 41% effectiveness, but are less visible. They do not produce the same finished result. So you decide, better result or compromised result--your choice.
