When you have dental malocclusions, you don’t need to wear unattractive braces with wires and brackets. Today, there are invisible braces that are made from a durable, clear plastic. In addition to having a better appearance while you are having your teeth straightened, there are other advantages that invisible braces have over other options.
Clear braces can be either ceramic braces or clear aligners. The right choice for you will depend on a number of factors, such as what you are wanting to treat and your needs as a patient. Either way, the main advantage of these braces is that they are less visible than traditional metal braces.
If you are an adult who is self-conscious about wearing orthodontic devices, then wearing invisible braces is a great choice because the items are much more difficult for others to see. When you have an important meeting at work or need to have a photograph taken, it is understandable that you don’t want everyone staring at your braces. This is where invisible braces can really come in handy.
In addition, regular braces apply a lot of pressure on your teeth. Alternatively, invisible braces in the form of clear aligners apply gentle pressure on your teeth, and the plastic from the devices won’t damage your teeth. You are also able to brush and floss better while wearing aligners because you can remove the devices without needing to cope with the brackets or wires.
