Braces are not only for cosmetic purposes. Having crowded teeth makes it harder to properly clean gums, which could lead to harmful bacteria build up. Having straight, aligned teeth allows for better cleaning, better oral health and helps to prevent diseases.
Clear braces are becoming a popular choice compared to traditional wire braces because they are clear, discreet, comfortable and removable!
Invisalign (a brand of clear braces) is a removable, clear retainer made of a thermoplastic material called SmartTrack. A new retainer mould is created every 2-4 weeks as the teeth move into the correct spot.
Another similar option for clear braces is Clear Correct. Clear Correct offers comfortable, discreet clear retainer style treatments. The treatments require a removable appliance so there are no dietary restrictions and there is no change in routine for brushing and flossing teeth.
If you have a busy schedule or getting to orthodontic appointments is a hassle for you, Smile Direct Club offers a remote, invisible alignment treatment. They use a similar model to Invisalign and Clear Correct with the removable, clear retainer but the service is all done through mailing the retainers directly to you and communication with a doctor online.
These above options are becoming more and more popular because they are so easy to use; they’re clear, discreet and removable.
The cost varies between patients and is largely dependent on the length of treatment required.
A Health Spending Account can cover 100% of clear braces!
