You may be utterly exhausted from looking at people with perfect teeth. If you can't stand to look at another person with those beautifully straight teeth any longer, we have news for you. You can straighten and respace your teeth as an adult, without all of the brackets and wires of braces. As an adult, a lot of people don't want to wear braces because they don't like the way they look. This idea of wearing a lot of metal in your mouth is the reason why many adults are content to live with their teeth as is. The good news is that you don't have to. Instead of braces, you can choose to get clear aligners to fix your teeth. If you aren't sure what clear aligners are, or how they can help straighten and respace your teeth, let All About Orthodontics® give you information about clear aligners.
What Are Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners are one of the newest ways to straighten teeth without braces. The aligners are made from a transparent PVC plastic, and they are fitted to fix your teeth and only your teeth. They are custom for each mouth because no two mouths are the same. Over time, aligners change the look of your teeth by moving one or two teeth at a time. This is instead of trying to move all of your teeth at once, the way braces do. With clear aligners, you can have teeth that are white and perfectly aligned. Aligners fit like a glove directly over your teeth and help them to change or heal.
Advantages of Clear Aligners
There are lots of reasons to love clear aligners. Aligners work to straighten your teeth with no wires and no brackets. Brackets may make cleaning difficult for you because you have to try and clean around them. If you're trying to keep your teeth clean and healthy, braces and their brackets can be a huge problem. Over time, without proper oral hygiene, your teeth suffer, and you won't be able to move forward in your process of having whiter, straighter teeth. You can remove clear aligners to eat and drink as well as to brush and floss. You can pop your aligners back on when you finish.
You need to know that many people won't even be able to see your aligners because they are more challenging to spot since they're clear. In fact, it may be that the only person who sees the aligners is you.
Another big reason to love aligners is that aligners help adults keep to their busy schedules. Adults' lives are busy enough without having to go through the trouble of dentist appointments each month. With clear aligners, you only have to come in and see us every other month.
Aligners Vs. Braces
Busy adults love wearing aligners because they have to go to the orthodontist less often than with traditional braces. Adults have enough trouble keeping up with their lives, without having to be concerned about taking care of braces. If you get invisible aligners over braces, you will have a shorter treatment time. In fact, the treatment time for adults can be up to six months shorter than for those adults who choose to get traditional braces.
