Clear braces are a great alternative to traditional metal braces
Clear braces they shift your teeth using the same technology as traditional metal braces but are far less noticeable than the silver coloured brackets. Consisting of tooth coloured brackets, clear braces utilise o-rings to hold the orthodontic wire in place to dramatically move your teeth, in a relatively short amount of time.
What are the benefits of clear braces?
Besides their obvious aesthetic benefits, the benefits of clear braces include:
- Less staining due to no metal brackets
- Just as strong as traditional metal braces
- Patients will feel less rushed to complete treatment
- Often, clear braces have been reported to be more comfortable than metal braces
Looking after your clear braces is the same as looking after your traditional braces. This includes brushing and rinsing your teeth after every meal and flossing correctly.
When you brush and floss, ensure you have removed all the food particles to reduce the risk of tooth decay and disease. Your braces have small places for bacteria to thrive and multiply especially on the back molars.
Be prepared however, taking care of your teeth involves a lot more effort when you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. Cleaning your braces daily may seem like a big deal and a lot of effort, but the extra responsibility will have long lasting effects.
The team at Northshore Dental and Oral Health can inform you on how to correctly care for your braces when you get them fitted and at each follow up appointment.
