Advantages of Clear Aligners Over Metal Braces
With traditional metal braces, patients wear their orthodontic appliance directly on the surface of their teeth. With clear aligners, patients wear clear plastic aligners that sit over their teeth. This enables you to easily remove the aligners when eating and brushing. No wires or brackets also means not getting pinched or poked by the metal in your mouth.
Metal braces require constant readjustment and tightening over the course of a patient’s treatment that necessitates visiting an orthodontist. With clear aligners, Dr. Suess maps your treatment plan out from the beginning and creates a new aligner for each stage of care. As a clear aligners patient, you’ll simply replace the old aligner with the next one in the treatment plan to keep your orthodontic schedule on track. This eliminates the need for monthly readjustment and repair visits.
Having the ability to remove your orthodontic appliance means never having to give up your favorite crunchy, hard, or sticky foods. Foods like popcorn, apples, candy, and hard pretzels that can stick to or damage metal braces usually need to be avoided during orthodontic treatment. Clear aligners patients can eat whatever they want.
Clear aligners blend into the natural color and complexion of a patient’s smile. Unlike metal braces that sharply standout, clear aligner patients often have their treatment go unnoticed by most coworkers and classmates.
