What are the Benefits of Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are fast, safe, and easy to use. They are used by people of all ages. This aligner is made out of clear plastic that is shaped to fit the shape of your teeth.

Clear aligners can also be used with adults who have an extreme overbite or an underbite. It’s also a great option for people who have a slight overbite or an underbite as well as those who need to straighten their teeth gradually.

Clear aligners do not restrict the patient’s daily activities so you can continue eating what you want and brushing your teeth as usual. The reduced size of these appliances also reduces the visibility of the braces, making them less noticeable to those around you.

What’s the Difference Between Braces and Clear Aligners

Braces are the traditional way of straightening teeth. The brackets are attached to the back of each tooth, with the wire connecting these brackets to close any gaps in between teeth.

Clear aligners are a more modern take on teeth alignment. They work by gently pushing the teeth into the desired position. They are typically made out of clear plastic that is molded to fit your mouth and then worn for about two weeks at a time.

Braces are traditionally thought to be more painful than clear aligners because they need constant adjustments for what you’re eating. In addition, they cost a lot more than clear aligners, require in-person appointments and the average treatment time is much longer.

Braces vs clear aligners?

If you are undecided on whether to get braces or clear aligners, here are some reasons that might help you make up your mind:

1) Clear aligners are up to 70% less expensive than braces.

2) Clear aligners are more discreet than braces hence they are less likely to draw attention from bullies.

3) Clear aligners are less painful than wearing heavy metal braces for hours every day.

4) Braces can cause jaw pain and headaches whereas clear aligners can offer relief by evening out the teeth’ alignment with no discomfort.

Are Clear Aligners Faster Than Braces?

For those specifically wanting to know are clear aligners faster than braces? The answer is, yes! Typically braces take around 2+ years for treatment. Whereas the average clear aligner treatment timeframe is 4-6 months.
