Do you feel frustrated by the appearance of your crooked teeth? This is a common concern. Crooked teeth aren't just an aesthetic issue, either. When teeth are crowded or overlapping, they can be difficult to clean them properly. Plaque and tartar can build up in the areas where your toothbrush and dental floss can't reach, setting the stage for cavities and gum disease.
More adults than ever are looking to improve the health and appearance of their smiles with orthodontics, but most want an option that is discrete and allows them to maintain their mature and professional appearance.
We have a great solution for you.
Clear braces use custom-made translucent aligners to gently direct your teeth into their proper alignment. The aligners are comfortable and easy to wear and don't interfere with your busy, active lifestyle.
Aligners have a number of advantages over traditional metal-and-bracket braces. For one thing, since you remove the aligners to eat, you don't have to worry about food restrictions, and you can brush and floss without having to work around brackets and wires. You can also remove the aligners for a special occasion if you'd like (although you don't have to since they are practically invisible), and you can replace the aligners with a mouthguard to protect your teeth while you are playing sports. The smooth plastic of the aligners feels comfortable against your cheeks and soft tissues, helping you avoid the discomfort and irritation that can occur with metal brackets. Instead of an orthodontist tightening your braces periodically, you simply switch to the next set of clear braces as prescribed by your Boca Raton dentist.
Properly aligned teeth are at less risk for gum disease and tooth decay. Are you a candidate for this innovative new orthodontic option? Talk to us today about your options for orthodontics in Boca Raton.
