In many cases, clear braces are an excellent alternative to traditional metal braces. They can be used in many situations where the re-positioning of teeth are needed or desired. Clear braces can be used to straighten the teeth in order to improve a person’s appearance. They also can be used to put teeth into the right position before treatment with crowns, bridges, and veneers.
In addition to the improved cosmetic result, clear braces are sometimes needed to re position teeth that have drifted into a difficult to clean position. When teeth are tilted or rotated, much higher amounts of destructive plaque accumulates around them, increasing the risk for tooth decay.
Clear braces are almost invisible and are very easy for the patient to adapt to. Unlike traditional, metal braces that can be irritating and painful to the inside of the patients lips, clear braces are very smooth and non-irritating to the tissues inside the mouth.
