The Convenience of Clear Braces in Miami

Posted on: September 15, 2016

Clear BracesWe can provide you with clear braces in Miami — a modern solution for straightening teeth. You no longer have to wear traditional metal braces that can appear awkward and make you embarrassed about your smile. While orthodontics is necessary for straightening teeth, there is more than one way to do so, and we are focused on providing you with options. An orthodontic treatment can last anywhere from six months to three years, so it is important to select an option you can live with and feel comfortable wearing. Unlike a retainer, you cannot take your braces off, so comfort is key.

Clear Braces Are Different From Metal Braces

With traditional braces, a metal bracket is bonded to each one of your teeth and then a metal wire is threaded between these brackets. To hold the wires in place, rubber bands are secured to the brackets, as well. You can select a color of your rubber bands as a means of customization; however, there is no way to get around the fact that metal braces stand out. If you are looking for a discreet solution, this is not it.

Why Our Patients Love Clear Braces

While clear braces are technically braces, they don’t look like it. Instead of metal brackets, the brackets bonded to your teeth are made of tooth-colored ceramic. They are designed to blend in with your tooth structure, and they do an excellent job. Even the wires are different, as they are also tooth-colored, which can create the illusion of nothing being on your teeth at all. If you look closely, you will be able to see them but not from a distance or in the course of casual conversation. This makes it possible to look and feel like yourself while you are still benefiting from wearing orthodontics. Our adult patients appreciate this ability to straighten their teeth discreetly.

There are several things you need to know about wearing them, however. Since they are ceramic, you need to be fastidious when it comes to your oral hygiene. Brushing your teeth after eating meals and snacks is necessary to prevent stains. Brushing your teeth after meals is also  a good habit to get into when you are wearing braces, regardless of the type you choose. Additionally, you should, at least, rinse your mouth after drinking coffee, tea, wine, or anything else that can stain.

Some patients like to compare clear braces to wearing aligners. Both options are discreet because they are clear. The main differences are in how the process works. Clear braces are fixed to your teeth and are better at correcting issues with your bite or complex orthodontic needs. Clear aligners are effective at straightening your teeth and are removable. Which one you find to be the most convenient will depend on your lifestyle. For example, with clear aligners, you can eat whenever you want and drink what you want when you want it. To compare both in detail, call and schedule a consultation with our Miami office.
