In addition to traditional braces and Invisalign, we also offer clear braces in Reynoldsburg, OH. Clear braces are like traditional metal braces; however, they are far less noticeable. You will have an effective treatment to feel confident with a more discreet solution.
What are Clear Braces?
Clear braces are not exactly clear. Instead, they are made to mimic the color of enamel for a far less noticeable treatment. Like traditional metal braces, clear braces use brackets and wires. However, instead of using metal, semi-translucent or tooth-colored brackets and wires are used. As a result, the ceramic blends in with your teeth.
What are the Benefits of Clear Braces?
In addition to a less noticeable treatment, many have come to prefer ceramic braces over metal braces for various reasons. Often, patients who choose ceramic braces report to experience far less pain and discomfort because they do not irritate the gums as easily.
Although ceramic braces are not made from metal, they remain strong, durable and effective. In most cases, if the dentist’s recommendations are followed, they will not chip or break. Often, treatment time with clear braces is shorter than for those using traditional metal braces, so you will have the straight smile you have always wanted in less time.
What is Involved in the Treatment?
Treatment with ceramic braces is similar to that of metal braces. You will need a consultation with your orthodontist in Reynoldsburg to create a treatment plan and to determine if you are a candidate. Often, ceramic braces are recommended for those who have very white teeth because the braces will virtually disappear when placed on the teeth.
After a comprehensive treatment plan is developed, the brackets are attached to the teeth. The brackets are a little larger than those of traditional braces to allow a more discreet treatment. The wire will be attached to the brackets to allow the teeth to be moved into their correct positions. Adjustments to the wires are made throughout the treatment to gradually move the teeth. White ligatures will be placed on the brackets to hold the arch wire in place.
During your treatment, you will need to practice proper oral hygiene, which includes brushing and flossing around the wires and brackets. In addition, there will be some dietary restrictions to ensure the braces do not become damaged and to protect your teeth from damage during treatment. You will need to visit our office every couple of weeks to have adjustments made to complete your new straight smile.
