Adults With Clear Braces
When it comes to braces, our patients here in York (quite rightly) want to know everything. Trusting us with your teeth is an absolute privilege, and we want to help your smile be as straight, white and healthy as it can possibly be.
Clear braces are a great option for straightening your smile, especially if you want to correct bite problems, or suffer from associated discomfort, such as jaw pain or headaches. They can also be effective both on smiles that need lots of work, and those that just need a little adjustment – so if you’re considering them, read on to find out more.
Why should I try clear braces?
Clear braces have totally revolutionised teeth-straightening treatment. Time ago, the only option available was fixed metal ‘train track’ braces that were cumbersome, uncomfortable and inconvenient – not to mention conspicuous! Now, you can have treatment on your own terms with braces that other people likely won’t notice, which makes them much more discreet for teens and adults alike.
Which types of clear brace do you offer?
The two brands of clear brace we recommend are Damon and Invisalign, however each works differently. Damon are a near-invisible option, fixed to your smile, which are a more modern version of the old-fashioned fixed brace. Invisalign are totally removable and made from clear acrylic, and it’s argued they’re the most discreet option available on the market.
What are the advantages of Damon braces?
Damon credit themselves as being a faster alternative than conventional braces. The brand has treated over 7 million smiles and has an impressive, 20-year history. One of the biggest draws to this type of clear brace is their sliding brackets, which allow the wires to move freely, making it easier to care for your smile while reducing pressure and friction along the way.
What are the advantages of Invisalign braces?
Invisalign is often considered to be the gold standard in adult and teen braces. Instead of having to visit your dentist for adjustments, the clever tray system means you only need to wear clear aligners over your teeth to straighten them – which are swapped out for a new set to adjust teeth little-by-little. Our patients rave about Invisalign because of all clear brace options, it’s the most discreet, meaning others can’t tell they have treatment. Like Damon, Invisalign has successfully treated millions of smiles and can work faster on your smile than traditional methods.
