How Do Clear Braces Work?
Clear braces essentially work just like traditional braces do. They use wires, brackets, and elastics to shift teeth towards new, improved positions at a gradual pace. However, these components will no longer be metallic; they’ll instead look clear or colored the same as your natural tooth enamel, allowing them to blend in.
Many people don’t actually know that braces don’t just improve the appearance of smiles! Straightening teeth can also make it easier to brush and floss and lead to a lower overall risk of periodontal disease, tooth decay, and other common problems.
What are the Benefits of Clear Braces?
Clear braces have several excellent benefits for children and their families. First and foremost, they’re very subtle and hard to see. This will allow your loved one to continue enjoying an attractive and confident appearance in their day-to-day life, and they won’t have to worry about being teased either. Secondly, many of our patients find that clear/ceramic braces are actually more comfortable than their traditional metal counterparts.
