Invisible braces are clear teeth aligners. They are also known as clear braces. They are made by use of highly advanced computer technology. Other people cannot notice easily that you are wearing them hence the name “invisible”. These braces work just as well as the metal braces.
They are used to treat dental conditions like:
- Gaps between the teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
The braces come as a set customized for a person’s set of teeth and are designed to fit perfectly over the teeth. The first set of braces is usually worn for the first two weeks of the treatment, and then the patient goes back to the dentist and gets a new set. As the treatment goes on, a different set is introduced to the patient depending on the improvement of the teeth.
Here are the benefits that you get from using the invisible-type braces:
1. Easy Process – The process of putting on the braces is simple and does not take a lot of time. With the latest technology, the dentist will have an overview of how the braces will be put on the patient on their computers. The overview comes in form of a detailed image. The dentist gets to look at the image while putting on the braces, therefore, making it easier to install on the first go.
2. Are Unnoticeable – It is very difficult for other people to notice that you have braces on your teeth. You will not get weird stares from people who come across those wearing braces. They are a good choice for people who have a vital social life particularly in terms of their careers. People who work at the front desks of hotels and other organizations can use these braces without being affected emotionally. This includes the sensitive people who get easily offended by people’s comments.
3. Are Comfortable – These braces are very comfortable. You may even forget that you are using them. They do not irritate the tongue, gums or cheeks. They do not cause sores in the mouth either.
These are the many benefits of invisible braces. If you are required to use braces for any dental condition that you have, consider these braces. Choose a qualified and experienced dentist to put on the braces for you. Ensure you also visit your dentist regularly for checkups during your treatment process.
