Do clear braces work well?

The short answer is, “it depends.” If you are seeking information about clear braces in Franklin, WI, consider contacting the team at Clear BracesFranklin Dental.

People who have alignment problems with their teeth, such as an overbite, underbite, or crossbite or problems such as crowding, spacing, or crooked teeth need to alleviate these issues. Not only does a straighter smile boost confidence, but fixing those problems go a long way to help improve and maintain oral health.

Nevertheless, some people are not comfortable with the idea of traditional braces. If that’s the case with you, then consider clear braces.

Clear braces utilize a series of clear, virtually invisible plastic trays instead of metal brackets, bands, and wires. Unlike traditional braces, which are cemented to your teeth and have to be adjusted and removed by your Franklin dentist, clear braces are removable. That means you are in charge of when, how, and for how long you wear them. Patients who opt for clear braces generally wear them for a longer period of time than traditional braces. This is because the trays are usually designed to apply less pressure, and therefore take longer to adjust the alignment of your teeth than traditional braces.

Like traditional braces, clear braces are designed specifically for your needs. Your Franklin dentist will make impressions of your mouth which will serve as the template to design your clear braces. Typically, you will wear each tray for a few weeks at a time, for a certain number of hours a day before changing the trays out for the next set of trays. The amount of time you wear them each day and the total length of time you have to wear your clear braces will depend on your case and your treatment goals.

Clear braces can work well, but they are not for everyone. For one, you need to be self-disciplined enough to follow the treatment plan exactly as prescribed. Also, clear braces tend to yield the best results for people who have milder bite or occlusion issues. If you have a severe alignment problem, your Franklin dentists may suggest you consider a different option.
