Straight Talk About Clear Braces

If you want straighter teeth without a mouthful of metal, learn about the different kinds of invisible braces and see if they’ll suit your smile.

A Clear Look at Clear Braces

Braces are better than ever today, thanks to advanced design and technology. Today, invisible braces offer an aesthetic alternative to the conventional metal braces with wire brackets. An orthodontist creates them through advanced computer technology that predicts tooth movement. This ensures that the braces slowly and effectively straighten teeth.

The Right Candidates for Invisible Braces

Invisible braces are ideal for adults and older teenagers. According to orthodontists in Mount Dora, they are not usually considered good braces for kids. That’s because baby teeth and complex orthodontic problems of children typically require the stronger, traditional braces for kids’ needs. But for older individuals who want the discretion of clear braces, invisible braces can treat these common orthodontic conditions:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Poorly-spaced teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbite

Your 3 Options for Clear Orthodontics

If you want straighter teeth without a mouthful of metal, discover the clear braces offered by most family orthodontics clinics today. These newer braces use tooth-colored brackets instead of metal to straighten teeth and correct minor alignment problems. Your orthodontist will advise you about the right kind for you. The three types of invisible braces are:

  1. Inside Braces attach the brackets of braces to the back of the teeth to hide them from view. This makes them especially appealing to adults and people self-conscious about wearing braces at all. Inside braces are not removable and have elastics that expedite treatment time. Some of the challenges of these braces include discomfort, as well as problems maintaining dental hygiene and daily function. They also tend to cost more than other options, so see if your family orthodontics practice offers payment options to make them more affordable braces for you.
  2. Clear Ceramic Braces, made of composite materials, are larger yet weaker than metal brackets. They have small rubber bands, or ligatures, to secure them to the arch wire. Keep in mind that ceramic brackets are not removable until treatment is completed, can produce irritation, and may complicate daily tooth care and activities. Also, clear braces necessitate a longer treatment time since your orthodontist may need to apply a more gradual force to move teeth gently. They can also cost more than other braces, but may become an affordable braces option by finding orthodontists in Mount Dora that accept financing or insurance.
  3. Clear Aligners are a series of invisible aligners that are customized to fit the teeth. Each new aligner is worn for a certain amount of time before it’s replaced with the next one. The number of aligners required depends on your orthodontic problem. These are minimally invasive, rarely cause irritation, and lack the brackets and wires that can cause discomfort. They can also be removed for eating, drinking, and cleaning teeth. Just be aware that they are sometimes difficult to get used to at first and can demand frequent maintenance. But an orthodontist often recommends them for their removability and greater comfort. Check with your orthodontist to see if invisible braces are clearly right for you.
