Clear Braces Straighten Teeth Discreetly
At All Care Dental, we use clear braces to help our adult patients that want to change their smile and their appearance but are not sure that they are willing to wear metal braces like they may have already done as a child. Clear braces bridge the gap, giving adults a much-needed solution that does not require them to make major changes to their lifestyle or their appearance. If you live in Port Hueneme and want to find out if you are a candidate for clear braces, call (805) 259-1145 and visit our office for a thorough examination.
Invisalign® vs. Traditional Orthodontics
Invisalign® works differently than traditional braces because with traditional braces, metal brackets are bonded to the surface of your teeth and a wire is threaded between them. Invisalign® operates differently. You simply wear a clear aligner that is very similar to a full plastic retainer. This aligner puts pressure on specific teeth moving them in the right direction. An aligner is worn for approximately two weeks. In that time, you will notice that your aligners begin to feel loose. When they do, you know that that aligner has moved your teeth accurately and you are ready for the next one in the series. You can switch them out from the convenience of your home. This makes Invisalign® a far more practical solution for busy adults. Additionally, Invisalign® clear braces are supposed to come out when you eat and when you brush your teeth. As a result, you can enjoy your favorite plate of ribs or even a crunchy bag of trail mix without worrying about damaging your new orthodontics.
Some of the other benefits of Invisalign® clear braces include the ability to see your teeth during the straightening process. This means that your teeth remain the star of the show instead of your braces. Additionally, you have the ability to take them out for a special work presentation, a dinner date, or a family event where you want to look your best without thinking about your braces.
These are benefits that traditional Orthodontics simply cannot offer you.
