You know that you need orthodontic correction. It is obvious when you look at your teeth. They aren’t properly aligned and you have spacing issues. You don’t want to ignore them. If you are going to get the smile that you have always wanted, you need to consider the best course of treatment. You want something discreet to make sure that your orthodontic treatment won’t be obvious. You can go with clear braces or you may be a good candidate for Invisalign®. Learn more about your options before you move forward with the next step closer to an amazing smile.
Understanding Clear Braces
Clear braces are similar to traditional braces with brackets and wires. However, your brackets are ceramic instead of metal. They can be clear or they can be the same color as your teeth. Your wires can blend in as well. In the end, no one will hardly notice that you are wearing braces while they go to work to shift your teeth into the proper position. Braces are typically recommended for more complicated cases of orthodontic correction. Only our experienced orthodontist will be able to tell you if you need this option or if you can go with Invisalign®.
Invisalign® is one of the most popular forms for orthodontic correction for adults and teens. If you are a candidate for this form of treatment, aligners are customized to fit your teeth. They are made from a clear plastic that is extremely durable. They slide over your teeth. They will be exchanged for a new set of aligners every two weeks. They gently shift your teeth into place. You need to wear them for at least 22 hours each day to get the best results. They can be removed while you are cleaning your teeth or when you are eating. You can also take them out for intense sports or when you have a special occasion. This is an extremely flexible and discreet method to correct your teeth. Invisalign® works best on milder cases of orthodontic correction.
