The Facts About Clear Braces

If you’ve ever wanted orthodontic treatment but been put off by the look of braces, we may have the perfect solution for you. In recent years, clear braces have become incredibly popular, as more and more people choose discreet orthodontic solutions to give them a beautiful, straight smile. One of our most popular treatments is Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an innovative modern alternative to traditional fixed braces. Rather than using braces, which are made up of brackets and wires, to move the teeth, Invisalign uses a series of bespoke clear plastic aligners. The aligners are very light and they are almost invisible to other people. They are also removable and they should be taken out to eat, drink and clean the teeth.

These incredible aligners are created according to a personalised treatment plan. Each aligner is different and you must wear them in a set series. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and then replaced with the next aligner until the series is complete.

Why would I consider clear braces?

Clear braces have an obvious benefit over traditional fixed braces – they are invisible when you smile. This means that you don’t have to worry about how your looks will change during the treatment process or what other people may think about your braces. Braces are not the most attractive appliances and they are not considered very fashionable, so discreet braces are a great option for those who are image-conscious.

Invisalign also has a host of other benefits. The aligners are light and comfortable and they do not contain any metal. They are also removable, which gives you more flexibility and the treatment is planned in advance, which means you have an idea of what your smile will look like before you even start treatment.
