4 benefits of clear braces treatment

Clear aligners, otherwise known as clear braces, will straighten your teeth without the use of conventional braces (which can be an ordeal, especially for adults). Utilising the latest technology, clear braces are created specifically for your unique needs in order to promote tooth movement. This process is not only recommended in most situations but is much more comfortable than the latter.

Here are 4 benefits to choosing clear braces over traditional braces

#1: Clear braces are much more comfortable than traditional braces

Traditional braces are not only clunky in your mouth but often can cause discomfort and annoyance when they are tightened. Aside from this, food is frequently caught in traditional metal braces. Fortunately, clear braces can be removed at any time if there is discomfort or a situation that calls for removal, such as brushing your teeth, flossing, or eating.

#2: Clear braces treat teeth faster than traditional braces

It can take years for metal braces to straighten out teeth, sometimes up to 5 years or more. Clear braces can do the same work in half the time, sometimes only a year or two. Who wouldn’t want to take the shorter and easier route?

#3: Clear braces are much more subtle to your appearance than traditional braces

Traditional braces are most often associated with the term “metal mouth.” Metal mouth is a thing of the past because clear braces are virtually undetectable. Your smile will not suffer while your teeth are straightening themselves out.

#4: Clear braces are safer than metal braces

Traditional braces have been known to cause damage to teeth. Oftentimes, they may cause “white scare” on the enamel. This is when white spots remain where the braces were implemented. Metal in your mouth can also cause punctures and/or scratches to the mouth, gums, lips, etc. With clear braces, there are no safety concerns. No cuts, cavities, or disease.

There are a number of reasons why we would highly suggest clear braces over traditional braces. The world of dentistry has come a long way. In modern times, choose a more comfortable and safer option. To learn more about these services, do not hesitate to contact our office. We look forward to discussing your orthodontic needs with you.
