If you’ve heard about clear braces, you might be wondering how they match up against traditional braces. Well, Invisalign, the clear braces system that revolutionized orthodontic treatment, has several major advantages to speak of. Here at Kellerman Dental, we’re pleased to offer it to you.
Traditional braces used to be big, thick, unattractive monstrosities that consisted of criss-crossing wires and heavy brackets. They’ve come a long way. Now, they are more lightweight, less complex, and visually appealing. That’s the good news. The better news, though, is that our Glen Carbon clear braces provide benefits that traditional braces simply cannot. Invisalign are braces, but are more accurately described as aligners. Those aligners contain no wires and no brackets. Made of clear plastic, they are low maintenance. In fact, since adjustments are not required, you only need come in every six weeks so that your progress can be checked. Of course, the most coveted feature of our Glen Carbon clear braces is that they are undetectable when you wear them. You will not have to feel self-conscious about them. Their plastic construction also means that any soreness or irritation of your gums and the inner part of your mouth that are possible with traditional braces are completely eliminated. You will experience outstanding comfort. And Invisalign is also removable. You should only take out your aligner to eat, brush, and floss. Otherwise, you keep it in 24/7. It’s always working to move your teeth into a better position. You’ll wear an aligner for about two weeks and then discard it, moving on to the next in the series. The average is about 18 to 30, but will vary based on your unique circumstances.
