Crooked teeth can affect a person’s confidence as well as their oral and overall health. Fortunately, dental solutions like clear braces can help. Clear braces treatment comes with many benefits. Read on to learn more about clear braces and how they could benefit you.

Discreet Appearance
One of the biggest advantages of clear braces treatment is that you can straighten your teeth more discreetly than was possible in the past. Unlike traditional metal braces, which tend to be more visible, clear aligners are less conspicuous. There are clear braces which use ceramic brackets instead of metal. There are also clear aligner options. Typically, clear aligners are made from medical-grade plastic that’s nearly transparent. Because clear aligners are nearly visible to the naked eye, many say they do not feel self-conscious about wearing these braces.

Comfortable and Convenient
The medical plastic material used to make clear aligners is custom made for your smile and fits smoothly over your teeth without poking or cutting into your gum tissue. Your aligners will periodically be switched out with replacement aligners that straighten your smile over time. These replacement aligners put pressure on your teeth to gradually move them into the correct position. Additionally, clear aligners make it easier to keep your mouth and teeth clean. Unlike metal braces, clear aligners are removable, which allows you to clean your teeth thoroughly. Clear aligners also have the added convenience of fewer required appointments, as long as you follow your orthodontists’ instructions and adhere to your treatment plan.

Our office also offers Damon Clear Braces, which is another discreet clear braces treatment. This clear braces system has been reported to exert less pressure and friction on the teeth, which makes treatment more comfortable. Damon Clear uses a tie-less system, which allows for faster tooth movement as well. This clear braces system is also stain resistant.

Improved Oral Health
As stated, clear aligners allow you to clean your mouth thoroughly thus improving your oral hygiene. When your teeth are not properly aligned, you have an increased risk of plaque and tartar buildup, leading to cavities and even gum disease. The ability to remove your orthodontic treatment periodically allows you to reach and clean areas that would otherwise be more challenging to reach.

Millions of people around the world can benefit from these benefits of clear braces treatment. To learn more about clear braces, or to schedule your complimentary consultation, contact our office, today!
