Clear braces, also known as invisible aligners, are removable orthodontic appliances with no wires or braces to realign teeth. They are typically intended for those with minor to moderate tooth gap issues or severely crowded or irregular teeth. Visually aligned teeth help to improve smile aesthetics and social well-being. Here are some questions you should ask before using clear aligners for teeth.
Are you a good candidate for this treatment?
It is best to consult a dentist or orthodontist before deciding to undergo any orthodontics procedures. If your dentist or orthodontist has recommended clear braces as an alternative to Invisalign, it is a good idea to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your oral health care goals. You should also be informed about the pros and cons of this treatment so you are better informed to make the best treatment decision. A qualified professional will be able to explain the procedure in detail and answer any questions you may have.
Who should use Aligners for teeth?
This treatment is most ideal for young children and adults who wish to correct their teeth alignment but do not have time to go to a clinic or orthodontist to get the treatment done. However, adults may also consider Invisalign treatment to improve their smiles and improve their overall health. Patients with crooked or crowded teeth may also benefit from the treatment.
Are there any other advantages/disadvantages to using Aligners for teeth?
There are several additional resources besides an improved bite, straightening teeth, and improving smiles. First, they do not require wearing braces to correct your oral health. Second, they can be removed at will (when eating, sleeping, brushing, flossing, etc.), unlike braces which need to be worn all the time. Lastly, they are more affordable than braces as you only need to get Invisalign treatment once for straightening your teeth and cleaning your aligners (this means no more buying multiple packs of aligners).
Transparent braces for teeth are not only a quick and easy way to straighten your teeth; they are much more cost-effective than braces. You can save a lot of money over a year by avoiding braces. You will only need to get Invisalign treatment once, unlike braces, where you need to get braces for every six months or so, depending on how many teeth you need to straighten. Therefore, having clear aligners for teeth is a better option for you.
