How Clear Braces Work to Straighten Your Teeth

March 31st, 2023

Are you looking for an effective and discreet way to straighten your teeth? Clear braces may be the perfect option for you. Clear braces are an orthodontic treatment that can correct crooked or crowded teeth and improve your bite.

In this blog post, we’ll discuss how clear braces work to straighten your teeth and why they may be the best choice for achieving your desired result.

What are clear braces?

Clear braces are an orthodontic treatment option that allows individuals to straighten their teeth without the traditional metal brackets and wires. They feature clear ceramic or plastic materials, making them less visible on the teeth.

This type of treatment uses the same concept as metal braces: archwires and brackets are used to align the teeth, but instead of metal brackets, clear ceramic brackets are used. The brackets are often smaller in size, making them virtually unnoticeable.

What do clear braces do?

Clear braces work similarly to traditional metal braces, but instead of metal brackets and wires, clear braces use tooth-colored brackets and clear plastic archwires that are nearly invisible when worn.

Your orthodontist will attach the brackets to your teeth during the process and then use a special tool to bend the wire into shape. The braces will gradually move your teeth over time into their desired positions.

The benefits of clear braces

1. Enhanced Appearance: Clear braces are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces, giving you a more aesthetically pleasing look

2. Discretion: Clear braces provide the same orthodontic treatment as metal braces but do so with greater discretion and comfort. 

3. Comfort: Clear braces feature flexible materials that make them more comfortable than traditional metal braces. They are gentler on your gums and cheeks and won’t cause as much irritation.
