How are clear braces different from regular braces?
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to improve your teeth alignment without having to wear brackets and wires on your teeth? We offer clear braces in our Burnaby, BC dental office so that our patients have options when it comes to orthodontic treatment.
A few of the differences you can expect with clear braces include:
Clear braces eliminate the need for brackets and wires by using a clear aligner system to gently realign your teeth over time. The length of your treatment will depend on how far your teeth need to move and how compliant you are with your treatment.
The clear aligner system is not usually visible when you speak and smile, so you can discreetly receive treatment.
Clear braces are removable, making it easier for you to maintain exceptional oral health during your orthodontic treatment without any special floss threaders or brushes. You can remove your trays to eat, as well, so you will not have to contend with stray traces of broccoli caught in your brackets.
While clear braces successfully address most orthodontic conditions, some complex cases may achieve better results with traditional treatment. The best way to find out if invisible braces will work for you is to contact our dental office and schedule a consultation.
