Having orthodontic work can help you correct crooked teeth, close smile gaps, and improve both your appearance, and your oral health. When you use clear braces to make these adjustments, you can see results without having to wear conspicuous bracket and wire braces for an extended period of time. Clear braces are made from see-through plastic, and will fit discreetly over your teeth. They are also removable, meaning they will not be in your way when you are trying to clean your teeth, or when you eat. You should know that correcting alignment flaws can potentially lower your risk for TMJ dysfunction, and provide you with better bite alignment.
The Process Of Having Your Teeth Straightened With Clear Braces
Using clear braces to straighten your smile will actually involve many sets of aligners. As you wear a set, your teeth will be brought closer to their desired position. At the appropriate time, you will move on to a new set. While your dentist will check on your progress, there is no manual tightening, or any other modification needed.
How Will My Oral Health Change After Undergoing Treatment With Clear Braces?
A set of misaligned teeth can result in a person’s bite being uneven. If your flawed bite leads to issues with your jaw function, you could place excess wear and tear on certain teeth. You may also find yourself dealing with issues related to TMJ dysfunction. After an adjustment with clear braces, you can put an end to these problems. Of course, many people are just satisfied to know that they will look better at the end of their treatment.
