As the name implies, invisible orthodontics encompasses all discreet orthodontic treatments. At Daniel Dentistry, we recommend this transparent solution as a more aesthetically acceptable alternative to standard metal braces, allowing patients to feel more at ease and confident.
As a result, clear orthodontics has become the ideal alternative for adults, particularly those who work in public and do not want to explain why they wish to straighten their smile.
How Does Invisible Orthodontic Treatment Work?
The critical difference between invisible orthodontics and standard braces is the ability to realign teeth discreetly. Because these invisible tools are usually the color of the tooth's enamel or translucent, like clear orthodontic aligners, the goal of clear orthodontic treatments is to move and straighten the teeth without being seen by others.
Clear orthodontics, like regular braces, apply pressure to the teeth, gradually moving them into their proper place. Depending on the type of device, invisible orthodontic gadgets can generate this pressure in various ways.
The Different Types of Invisible Orthodontics Treatments
Invisalign Or Clear Aligners
The aligners are clear splints made of flexible plastic that is custom-made for your mouth and gradually align your teeth. These aligners come in a custom-planned series that you wear one after another as your teeth move into their proper position. They are nearly unnoticeable; using thread and brush, you can remove them to drink and eat.
They are digitally designed customized braces that are tailored to be attached to the back of your teeth. Because they are hidden behind the teeth, they are entirely undetectable. It is currently the most aesthetically pleasing and exact alternative. These are made with cutting-edge technology and tend to straighten teeth faster than metal brackets. The movements are digitally programmed in three dimensions for more precise projections on treatment.
The Benefits of Invisible Orthodontics Treatments
Since clear aligners have no wires or brackets like traditional braces, they are more comfortable for patients who experience irritation from metal or plastic components on other orthodontic appliances.
Unlike traditional braces, which need to be tightened every few weeks, you can remove your clear aligners to eat, drink, brush your teeth, floss, and clean them. This means fewer visits to the dentist’s office and more convenience in your daily life!
Since the material is transparent and hidden, these invisible braces won’t stand out against your teeth like bulky metal braces. You can feel confident flashing your smile everywhere you go knowing these aligners will keep your orthodontic treatment under wraps!
