Invisible braces are appealing to most adults who want to straighten their teeth. This treatment is not only subtle, but it can also work quickly to transform smiles. Consult with Dr. Charmaine Johnson and her dental team at Premier Smile Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL, to learn more and find out whether you are a candidate for invisible braces.
Types of Invisible Braces
There are several types of braces, and some are nearly impossible to see on the teeth. If you are interested in transforming the positions of your teeth without anyone knowing about the treatment you’re pursuing, the following invisible braces may be just right.
Invisalign: The most common and sought after form of invisible braces, Invisalign is known for its subtle appearance. The average treatment time for this type of invisible braces is one year, though patients may require less time or more time to get their smile completely aligned using removable aligners depending on the complexity of their case.
Fastbraces: Made of high-performing, triangular-shaped brackets, Fastbraces qualify as invisible braces because they are made of ceramic, tooth-colored materials. These features are hardly noticeable and appealing to adults who aren’t interested in sporting obvious orthodontics. The speed of Fastbraces is also attractive to patients who want their teeth put into alignment quickly.
Clear braces: Clear braces is another name for invisible braces like Invisalign. The clear trays fit snugly against teeth for a perfect fit and invisibility and move teeth and roots into alignment a few teeth at a time until the entire smile is straight.
Problems Fixed by Invisible Braces
Invisible braces might look different than metal brackets and wires, but they still do the same hard work of conventional orthodontics and leave satisfied patients in their wake. Some of the most common problems corrected by invisible braces include:
Jaw pain: There’s a difference between tooth pain caused by decay and jaw pain caused by misalignment. Trust your dentist to diagnose the difference and recommend treatment.
Teeth grinding: This chronic and often unconscious habit can be remedied with invisible braces that put all teeth and roots into alignment.
Frequent cavities: It’s easier to clean teeth that are straight. Flossing between them is simple and food is less likely to get caught in annoying places. That means fewer cavities or infections.
Gaps and crooked teeth: Some teeth simply do not erupt in the right places and need to be shifted to close gaps or twist a wonky tooth in the right direction. Clear trays can do that.
Bite problems: Whether you have an overbite, underbite, open bite, or otherwise, invisible braces can often correct anything that conventional metal braces can. Ask your Fort Lauderdale dentist for certain to see what’s possible for your teeth.
Teeth that are straightened with orthodontics not only look better, they work better too. There are only positives when it comes to wearing clear trays. Your mouth is stronger and healthier overall thanks to the transformative properties of invisible braces.
