What are the Advantages of Clear Braces?
Did you know that roughly 60% of the world’s population has misaligned teeth? Millions of people seek out orthodontia every year, and most people opt for traditional braces because it is the most common treatment for misaligned teeth.
There are several advantages that clear braces have over traditional braces.
Someone might opt for clear braces because they are less noticeable than metal brackets and archways. Many patients are worried about how their braces will make them look when they go to school or work. They want to get the same results that traditional braces afford them, but they don’t want braces to be the most predominant thing about their smile.
Another advantage of clear braces is that they can shorten your orthodontic care time. Many of our patients will get the results they want in a shorter timeframe than if they had traditional metal braces.
Do Clear Braces Work as Well as Traditional Braces?
The short answer to this question is yes. In some cases, clear braces can work even faster than metal braces.
Those looking into options aside from traditional braces may find that they are not a good candidate for clear aligners such as Invisalign. This problem is not seen as often with clear braces.
Clear braces use the same technique as traditional braces. Even if you have severe issues that exclude you from being a good candidate for Invisalign, you likely will not be excluded from having clear braces as an option.
Are There Disadvantages of Clear Braces?
While there are plenty of advantages of clear braces, there are some disadvantages.
In some cases, clear braces will be less affordable than traditional metal braces, and this is because of the use of higher-priced materials such as ceramics. It can be a downside for someone looking for the most affordable way to fix their teeth.
However, we offer financing options if you want to turn this one payment into more affordable monthly installments. We gladly accept financing plans so that we can help more people.
Another slight disadvantage of clear braces is that the ceramic brackets can stain. This is not a guarantee, but if you don’t take great care of your teeth and braces, you can end up with more noticeable braces. You will need to dedicate time to prevent stains on your clear braces.
