Yep! Clear aligners are the perfect substitute for simple orthodontic cases.
They are perfect for adults who need to improve their smile, without having to use the traditional bulky visible metal braces on their teeth. These discrete and removable clear aligners are the ideal solution since they are practically undetectable in photos and normal conversation.
The key advantages of clear aligners:
- Comfort and convenience
- Simple treatment procedure
Who is a candidate for clear braces?
For crooked, crowded, protruding or gapped teeth, clear aligners are the perfect solution. Almost 60% of orthodontic patients are candidates for clear aligners. Although, there will be certain more complicated scenarios where the traditional braces would have to be considered instead of clear aligners.
Factors to consider with clear braces
Before you make the decision to take up clear aligners, there are some factors that needs to be considered:
- In order for the treatment to be effective you MUST wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day. You will need to commit to this, and if you are forgetful, you might not achieve the results you expect.
- Remove your aligners when eating or drinking (except eater). If you drink coffee all day every day, this is not the ideal option for you.
- While it is easier to clean your teeth than regular braces, you do have to brush your teeth after each and EVERY meal or drink (before putting your clear aligner back on).
