We hope that you have had a nice spring thus far. Now that summer is almost here, this is a great time of year to consider launching an orthodontic smile makeover. In fact, if you are an adult living with crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, we have an easy way to transform your problematic smile that doesn’t involve metal braces. As it happens, at our Bryan TX dentist’s office, we feature both Invisalign and ClearCorrect clear aligners.
Even though neither system needs brackets or wires to get the job done, these treatments are still referred to as “invisible” or “clear” braces. We’ll tell you about them both in today’s post. Keep reading and then be sure to call us at 979-279-8839 to request your clear aligners consultation at Johnson Dentistry.
Why Are They Called Invisible Braces?
This is a much more discreet process than wearing braces. Since these aligners are transparent, you can wear them without drawing attention to the fact that you are going through an orthodontic overhaul.
This is a major perk for many of our patients. With Invisalign or ClearCorrect, you can feel comfortable and confident wearing your aligners in professional and social situations. No one will ever know!
Who Can They Help?
All things considered, clear aligners are a good option for patients with mild or moderate alignment issues. Still, many patients fall into these categories, and clear aligners have been proven to fix a number of alignment problems, including: crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, crowded teeth, open bites, crossbites, underbites, overbites, and so forth.
What Makes Clear Aligners So Popular?
There are some real benefits that both Invisalign and ClearCorrect offer when compared to conventional braces.
They aren’t permanently attached. You can take them out whenever you need to.
Folks with braces will tell you they would love to be able to take them off for a couple hours each day. But they are tied to their hardware without any breaks for 2-3 long years.
By contrast, with Invisalign and ClearCorrect, you can enjoy those breaks and take a little time off part of every day. So long as you are wearing them most of the time, you’ll be able to stay on schedule, and you might just wrap up your treatment in about 12 months time.
You can eat whatever you want whenever you want.
Since there aren’t any wires or brackets to trap food, there won’t be any dietary restrictions.
You also won’t have to see an orthodontist for in-office adjustments every month. Instead you will be responsible for switching out your aligners at home.
Cleaning is also a breeze.
You can rinse out your aligners under warm water while you continue to brush and floss as always.
These are just a few of the reasons we think you will love your alternative orthodontic solution as much as we do.
