Are Clear Braces Effective?

Yes! Clear aligners are a great alternative to metal braces for simple orthodontic cases.

They are ideal for adults who want to improve their smile, without the use of traditional bulky visible metal braces. These discrete removable clear aligners are the perfect solution, they’re virtually undetectable in normal conversation or photos.

The key benefits of clear braces:

  • Subtlety
  • Convenience
  • Comfort
  • Simple treatment

Who is a candidate for clear braces?

Clear aligners work well for cases such with crooked, crowded, protruding or gapped teeth. Approximately 60% of orthodontic patients are candidates for clear aligners. However there are certain more complex cases where clear aligners aren’t the ideal option and traditional braces should be considered. We are here to help you decide which option is best for your case!

Factors to consider with clear braces

Before you make the decision to go with clear aligners there are certain factors to consider.

  • To be effective these aligners MUST be worn for at least 22 hours a day. You need to commit to this, if you’re forgetful you won’t achieve the outcomes you desire.
  • You need to remove your aligners when eating or drinking (except water). If you drink coffee all day everyday, they may not be an ideal option for you.
  • While easier to clean your teeth than regular braces you do need to brush your teeth after EVERY meal or drink (before putting your aligners back in).
