For many adults, the idea of braces brings up images of metal wires and brackets. But braces have come a long way in recent years, and now more convenient options are available – like Invisalign®. Other clear braces, like lingual braces and clear braces, are also popular among adults.
Here are the benefits of clear braces you can use to straighten your teeth in a convenient way.
Invisalign® uses clear aligners that are custom-made to fit your teeth. In addition, they are virtually invisible, so people won’t even know you’re wearing them unless you tell them. This means you can fix your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted without anyone knowing you’re doing it! Invisalign® teen braces are also available for teens who wish to straighten without dealing with the hassle of braces.
For more serious dental issues, lingual braces are also available. These braces are placed on the inside of your teeth, making them completely invisible from the outside. Clear and ceramic braces are another popular option that uses clear brackets and wires for a more subtle look.
Metal braces can be uncomfortable, especially when they first go on. They can also rub against the inside of your mouth, causing sores. In contrast, Invisalign® braces use smooth plastic that is gentle on your gums and won’t cause any irritation. This makes them a much more comfortable option for braces, especially if you have sensitive gums.
Visiting the orthodontist can also be a more comfortable experience. With metal braces, the orthodontist must adjust the wires and brackets. But with Invisalign®, all you need to do is pop in a new aligner.
Another big advantage of Invisalign® braces is that they are removable. This means you can take them out to brush your teeth and floss. In addition, you can take them out when you eat, and you don’t have to make any special dietary changes. Without braces getting in the way, you can still eat your favorite foods.
You can also take them out for life’s important events, like weddings and graduation. Invisalign® teen braces are also removable, so teens can still enjoy sports and all the activities they love.
Like anything else, braces cost money. However, Invisalign® may be more affordable than you think, especially in comparison to the cost of traditional braces. Your orthodontist will explain the cost of braces and help you find a plan that fits your budget.
In addition, check with your insurance provider to see if cosmetic braces like Invisalign® are covered. Many insurance plans will cover at least part of the cost.
Clear braces offer a convenient, comfortable, and affordable way to straighten your teeth. If you’re considering orthodontics, ask an experienced orthodontist like Dr. Yazji for their opinion. They will help you choose the cosmetic braces that are right for you.
