The Discovery Channel will air a special episode of Health Heroes focused on dental innovations, including a segment on clear aligner therapy.

The episode educates viewers about clear aligner therapy, a teeth-straightening alternative to metal braces, and also explores how orthodontic manufacturers such as ClearCorrect are making the procedure simpler and more affordable to the public.

The episode premieres on the East and West coasts at 7 a.m. Aug. 26, 2010, on the Discover Channel. It will re-air on Dish Network Channel 225 Aug. 27, 2010, at 10 p.m. EDT and on the Discovery Channel via DirectTV on Aug. 28, 2010, at 10 p.m. EDT.

Clear aligner therapy is an orthodontic treatment involving a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually move teeth to improve esthetics and bite function. The technique, often referred to as “invisible braces,” is becoming a growth area for dentists looking to add services.

The Health Heroes episode features dental industry innovators, including ClearCorrect founder Willis Pumphrey, DDS, and how he--along with input from other dentists,-worked to create a more patient and doctor-friendly alternative to more costly clear aligner choices on the market.

In the clear aligner process, ClearCorrect receives the patient’s records from their general dentist or orthodontist and creates exact 3D models of the teeth. Working with a doctor, ClearCorrect maps out a complete treatment plan of gradual adjustment, then manufacturers and delivers the clear aligners used in the procedure.
