Do you want a straight smile that you can feel great about? If so, then you probably already know that, in many cases, braces are the best choice for achieving this goal. And, if you don't want to deal with the unsightly appearance of braces, then you can often opt for clear braces if your dentist approves.If you do find that you have the option of choosing clear braces, these are definitely a wise choice. Clear braces offer many great advantages.
The main benefit that people associate with clear braces is that, of course, they are not nearly as visible as regular, metal braces. In fact, they are practically invisible and can typically only be seen from very close up.
Not having bulky metal in one's mouth can help to ease the embarrassment and self-consciousness that often comes with wearing braces, especially for adults. Furthermore, you never have to worry about getting food stuck in your braces, not wanting to show your smile in pictures, or anything like that. If appearance is important to you, then clear braces are definitely the way to go!
With traditional braces, you are stuck with them until your teeth are straight and the braces are ready to come off for good. With invisible braces, however, you can actually remove your braces as needed. While, in most cases, you do have to wear them the majority of the time, you can easily take them out for certain activities, such as:
- Eating or drinking
- Playing a sport or other physical activity
- Taking photos
- Special occasions/events when you want to look your best
- Playing an instrument
If you need to be able to remove your braces for certain activities or during certain times, then clear dental braces are definitely the way to go.
Effective at Correcting Many Dental Problems
Another great thing about clear dental braces is that they can fix a wide range of dental problems. These include:
- Crooked teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Crowding in the mouth
- Excess space between the teeth
Your dentist will, of course, have the final say on whether or not clear braces are right for you based on an examination of your teeth and the exact problems that you are facing. Fortunately, though, they are great for fixing most dental problems. So, if you think you'd like to experience these benefits firsthand by getting clear braces, talk with your dentist or Orthodontic Associates today!
