Clear braces produce excellent results in many of our patients at Cary Family Dental. Unlike traditional braces, there are no wires or brackets or rubber bands. Even better, they are almost undetectable to people who are standing just a few feet away from you.
They look a lot like an athlete’s mouthguard. The proper term for such braces is “aligner.” They are made of clear plastic and are worn over your teeth to gradually bring them into alignment.
One of the things that people like best about clear braces is that they are removable. You can take them out at mealtime, and when you brush your teeth at night. You should wear them while you sleep, however. For the best results, it’s recommended they be worn for at least twenty-two hours each day.
Clear braces are a great choice for adults who didn’t have braces when they were younger but don’t want to wear traditional braces at work. They are not for everyone, however. They are not good for patients who, for example, have severely rotated teeth.
