A lot of people don’t like the idea of getting traditional braces, and we completely understand. Those classic ‘train tracks’ don’t have the most appealing look, with metal brackets and wires covering your teeth. Thankfully, there are other options! Clear aligners are a great alternative, and we’re here to show you five advantages they have over traditional braces.
Clear aligners are much more comfortable to wear than traditional braces. It’s also much easier to live your life with clear aligners; you have to wear them for 22 hours a day for them to be effective, but that also means you can pop them out to eat and drink whatever you would like.
No Time at All!
Treatment time for clear aligners is much shorter than traditional braces. Because clear aligners focus on ‘The Social Six’ on your top and bottom rows, it takes us an average of 20 weeks to get you that perfect smile. Traditional braces can take a minimum of 18 months, a year and a half! Ouch, clear aligners definitely sound like a better time.
Clear aligners are exactly that, clear. They’re much more appealing to look at since they’re see-through. If you compare clear aligners to the ugly metal ‘train tracks,’ there’s no competition.
Consistency is Cool
They work! We swear. Clear aligners fit the shape of your teeth but put pressure on the teeth that need to be moved. You change sets every few weeks, with each set moving your teeth further. By the end of your treatment, you’re going to notice a big difference.
Safe and Sound
Wearing clear aligners has way less risk than traditional braces. They’re made of a smooth, BPA-free plastic that won’t hurt you. This is unlike traditional braces; brackets and wires can hurt the inside of your mouth from being sharp at times.
