How Do Clear Braces Work?
Orthodontic treatments have never been more comfortable and convenient than with clear braces. Your series of custom-made virtually invisible trays are made of ultra-clear plastic with soft thermal plastic inserts. They use gentle, but definitive, force to guide your teeth into alignment. Over the course of your treatment, each new set of aligners gradually shifts your teeth into the desired position, delivering a straight and functional smile.
What Are the Conditions Treated by Clear Braces?
Orthodontists use clear braces to correct a range of mild to moderate orthodontic issues. They can address minor overcrowding of teeth, spaces or gaps between the teeth, crooked or rotated teeth, minor corrections needed after traditional orthodontic treatment, and changes triggered by lapses in the use of retainers.
Why Consider Clear Braces?
A straight smile delivers many benefits. Aligned teeth are easier to clean, making you less prone to developing cavities, decay, and gum disease. You'll find it easier to chew your food and will prevent bite-related conditions such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Clear braces are also used for cosmetic purposes. A straight smile can enhance your smile and improve your overall self-confidence.
Your aligners, made from smooth plastic, are custom-crafted to your teeth, delivering unparalleled comfort. Unlike traditional braces, there are no food restrictions with your invisible braces. Simply remove them, indulge in your favorite foods, and then return them to your mouth. Brushing and flossing are a breeze! Once again, remove your aligners, clean your teeth, and pop them right back in.
Clear braces offer an outstanding choice for orthodontic treatment. Imagine attaining your ideal smile with no brackets or wires! Your invisible aligners will transform your smile without impacting your life. Better yet, they’ll adjust your bite in half of the time of other conventional orthodontic methods.
What Is the Clear Braces Procedure?
We will start by making impressions of your teeth, which we will send to our dental laboratory. The lab will reset the teeth to be aligned in stone models and will make soft thermal plastic inserts to fit over the reset teeth. Next, they will create a plastic retainer to fit over the model with the plastic aligning insert in place. When you wear the retainer, the thermal plastic insert exerts gentle pressure to guide your teeth into the desired position.
