Everything You Need to Know About Clear Braces

Clear, tray-style braces are becoming more and more popular, and with good reason! These are a great alternative to traditional braces that won’t include metal brackets. Our team is proud to work with clear braces to offer our patients an easy, less invasive treatment options, and we can help you find the right procedure for your unique needs!

What are Clear Braces?

Unlike traditional braces which include brackets on your teeth, clear braces use a series of clear plastic trays to adjust your teeth. These trays are nearly invisible while you wear them, and the process works to slowly move your teeth to a straighter position. Here are some of the benefits of clear braces:

  • They’re clear: Of course one of the biggest benefits of this treatment is that it’s clear, and barely visible. This means that you won’t have to worry about metal pieces changing the look of your smile during treatment. 
  • Eating is easy: Because you only have to wear the trays for 22 hours out of the day, you can actually remove them while you eat, which means you won’t have to worry about any food limitations. 
  • Cleaning is easy: Again, because the trays are removable, you’ll be able to take them out for your normal brushing and flossing. It’s super easy to keep up with your oral hygiene habits!
  • Comfort: Your clear braces trays will be custom fit for your teeth, making them super comfortable and easy to wear. Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth, and send them to a lab to make the custom trays. 

The process begins by visiting your dentist, and getting a consultation. Since every patient is different, your length of treatment and process will be unique based on how much straightening your teeth need!
