Articles Clear Braces – The Benefits

How can we help?

Clear braces don’t just transform your smile in less time than metal ones – they do it comfortably and safely too.

Anyone who wore braces as a child will remember the embarrassment and discomfort they felt with a mouthful of metal. So the prospect of wearing braces in adulthood is even more terrifying – until you realise that there is now an alternative option. Clear braces have transformed the way that teeth are being straightened across the globe, and people who might otherwise have suffered with uncomfortable, awkward and highly visible metal braces, are finding that their treatment can be simple and discreet.

Clear Braces – A New Trend

Clear braces are the new trend in periodontal clinics, replacing old-fashioned, uncomfortable metal braces. As more patients learn about the benefits of clear braces, they are requesting that they be treated with models like Invisalign@, one of the top brands on the market. These are the main advantages of having your teeth straightened with the new generation of clear braces:

  • You can brush and floss properly with clear braces – meaning your teeth and gums will be healthier.
  • Most people won’t even realise that you are having teeth-straightening treatment if you’re wearing clear braces.
  • Clear braces reduce the chance of tooth decay, as there are no metal wires or bands to trap food or plaque.
  • Clear braces like Invisalign@ drastically reduce the treatment time, so you can enjoy your straight new teeth sooner than you would with metal braces.
  • You can simply remove your clear braces when you eat or brush your teeth, making them much more comfortable and convenient than metal braces.

Clear Braces – How They Help

Clear braces are an ideal treatment for adults and teenagers needing adjustments to their teeth, whether it’s a small imperfection or a major problem. Over-crowded and widely-spaced teeth, and complex issues like overbites, crossbites and underbites can all be easily and effectively treated with clear braces. They are a great solution if you’ve never worn braces before, or you wore them when you were younger and the imperfection has returned.

Clear Braces – A Pain-free Process

Most people balk at the thought of having braces fitted because of the discomfort and inconvenience. With clear braces, however, the teeth-straightening process is made far more comfortable and bearable. Rather than using a system of metal wires or bands, clear braces are a set of clear plastic aligners in different sizes, worn in turn until the teeth are beautifully straight. In contrast to the metal of old-fashioned braces that can irritate the mouth, the plastic used in clear braces is much kinder to the gums, teeth and soft tissue.

Clear Braces – Invisible Treatment

The most exciting benefit of clear braces is that they are practically invisible, and barely anyone will notice that you are receiving treatment. If you need to give a presentation for work, you can do so with confidence knowing that people won’t be staring at your teeth. You will comfortable dating, playing sports, and going out in the evenings, because you’ll know that you don’t have unsightly pieces of metal wrapped around your teeth.

Clear Braces – Notice the Difference

If your dentist has advised you to have your teeth professionally straightened, then ask about clear braces. The difference is clear for all to see – unlike the braces themselves, which will go unnoticed by everyone around you!
