Clear braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend into teeth. Some even use tooth-colored wires to be less noticeable.
The benefits of clear braces became evident as a growing number of adult patients began to pursue. Adults are now able to improve the appearance and function of their smile without attaching the stigma of having a “metal mouth.” Straighter teeth are healthier in form and function. Bacteria, plaque and impacted food particles are the contributing factors to dental decay and gum disease. Teeth that are in alignment gather less plaque simply because they are easier to clean with proper brushing and flossing technique. The gums fit the teeth more snugly when the teeth do not overlap; leading to a decreased risk of triggers for the inflammatory process that result in periodontal disease.
Our office would love to talk with you about the benefits of clear braces and the opportunity to build your confidence by improving your smile.
