Have you ever wanted straighter teeth? If you didn’t have braces as an adolescent, you may think that ship has sailed. Think again. With Invisalign clear braces, adults can enjoy a straighter, more attractive smile without ever wearing metal wires and brackets.
What are Clear Braces?
Clear braces are comfortable, removable aligners that apply gentle pressure to shift teeth into ideal position. It’s the ideal orthodontic system for image-conscious adults and older teens. Clear braces can be removed whenever you like, and even when you’re wearing them, few people will notice.
What Clear Braces Cut Out
- Potential tooth damage from brackets
- Mouth sores from brackets, bands, and wires
- Painful adjustment visits for tightening braces
- An immature appearance
- Difficult cleaning routines
- Dietary limitations
- Months of treatment time (6 to 18 months usually)
Best Candidates for Clear Braces
If you wore braces in childhood, but your teeth have shifted out of ideal position, clear braces may be perfect. For adults and teens who need minor tooth movement, not major orthodontic treatment, clear braces might be ideal. For anyone who needs their teeth straightened for cosmetic reasons, but they need it done fast, this may be a great option.
