The Many Benefits of Clear Braces

smilestraightliptintHave you or your teenage son or daughter experienced the desire to choose orthodontic care for a straighter, more beautiful smile? Has the idea of teeth covered in metal brackets and wires caused this excitement to quickly fizzle out? Fortunately, we offer the aligner tray systems Invisalign and ClearCorrect to improve your smile without the sometimes traumatizing side effects of metal braces. You will simply begin with one in a series of trays. You will then graduate from one to the next until your treatment is complete – it’s that simple. Wondering if the benefits of clear braces will address your needs? Look through the following for a truly clear understanding of this cosmetic solution:

The Benefits of Clear Braces

  • Clear braces rely not on brackets and wires, but on smooth clear plastic aligner trays that will cause little to no irritation
  • Aligner trays are crafted out of safe, BPA-free plastic
  • We will use advanced imaging, such as digital X-rays, to create a personalized treatment plan and custom-fitted trays to optimize your experience and minimize treatment time
  • Most people will not even notice you are undergoing treatment because clear braces trays fit closely over your teeth and are practically invisible
  • You will quickly adjust to speaking clearly with your trays in place
  • Clear braces typically require a similar investment as traditional braces, as well as a similar treatment period of approximately one year
  • You may address a variety of malocclusions with this solution, including: overbite, underbite, crossbite, overcrowding, and spacing
  • You may remove your trays during the day, which you cannot do with metal braces – you will need to wear them for approximately 20 to 22 hours a day
  • Being able to remove your trays means you can continue to enjoy your usual meals, while continuing to take care of your teeth with your usual daily hygiene habits
