What are Clear Braces and How Do They Work?
Invisible orthodontics offers an alternative method to metal and ceramic braces that is nearly unnoticeable while undergoing treatment. This clear aligning system uses plastic trays form-fitted to your smile and slightly adjusted in the areas where orthodontic intervention is most needed. Over time, these trays gently usher teeth into an optimal alignment position for best function and a beautiful appearance.
While in use, you’ll barely notice the aligners covering teeth, as the alignment trays are made of clear, see-through plastic that’s hard enough to encourage movement but gentle on gums.
What’s more, during treatment patients can maintain their same eating habits without having to undergo the restrictions most commonly found with traditional metal and ceramic options.
How long do I have to wear them for?
If you choose orthodontic treatment with invisible braces, you can expect treatment to last anywhere from six months to two years. Generally, the results for clear braces are much quicker than traditional braces and can accomplish nearly identical results. While traditional braces are still used for the majority of complex cases and children, invisible orthodontics like Invisalign and ClearCorrect work well for almost everybody else.
After treatment, patients can utilize their last set of clear aligning trays as retainers at night to prevent relapse.
