Here are three benefits of clear aligner braces many patients may not have considered.
Gentler on Teeth and Gums
With a mouth full of wires and brackets, as with traditional braces, it’s easy for a stray wire or sharp edge to irritate the soft tissues of the mouth. Clear aligner braces present none of these hazards since the aligner trays are made of smooth plastic that is comfortable to wear.
No Staining of Teeth
When dental appliances are glued to teeth, such as the brackets with traditional braces, some staining around the site is fairly routine. Because it is more difficult to clean around the brackets and wires, teeth are more susceptible to stains from common foods and drinks.
Clear aligners are not attached to teeth, so there is no risk of staining. In addition, because the aligners are removed for cleaning the teeth, flossing and brushing is just as routine as before you began treatment. It’s easier to keep teeth and gums healthy.
Fewer Trips to the Dentist
Patients who experience traditional orthodontics know about routine visits to the dentist for adjustments to keep treatment on track. With clear aligner braces, we provide our patients with a few sets of aligners and instructions on when to switch to a new set. This means that trips to our surgery are minimized, and when patients do need to come in for new aligners, visits are shorter since no manipulation is required.
