Remember the old days of kids and adults being afraid to smile because they were self-conscious of their braces? Well, today, for young and old alike, there’s a better alternative than traditional braces: clear ones.
Clear braces are made using a series of invisible, removable “aligners” that fit over your top and/or bottom teeth. You wear a set for a while, removing them to eat, drink, brush and floss. Then you graduate to a different set that further moves your teeth into the position they need to be… and, typically over the course of a year, these custom-made “teeth trays” gradually move your teeth into their final position as desired.
The Benefits of Clear Aligners
Do you want to reposition your teeth and make them look, feel and function better? If so, clear aligners are a great solution to your wayward tooth/teeth problem. There are actually several benefits to them, beyond moving your teeth into better positions.
Did you know, for instance, that clear aligners can reduce your chance of getting gum disease since your teeth will no longer be overcrowded or improperly spaced? The gums will fit firmly around the teeth-- that’s ideal. Furthermore, clear aligners help correct issues such as overbites/underbites/open bites/crossbites. Are you looking for a confidence boost? Clear braces make your teeth look better, so you’re more apt to smile for pictures and feel good about how your teeth look to others.
Best of all, clear aligners are pretty painless and comparably faster than having traditional braces. Plus, you hardly notice them-- bonus!
