Have you thought about a straighter smile? Whether you missed out on the opportunity for braces when you were a child or you had braces and your teeth have drifted back over the years, it’s never too late to have attractive, straight teeth.
Straight teeth are also important when it comes to the health of your smile. Crooked, overlapping, crowded, or twisted teeth are tricky to clean, and your brush and floss may not reach some areas. Unfortunately, bacteria can still get into these areas and contribute to decay and periodontal disease. Straight teeth are simply easier to keep clean, reducing your risk for dental problems.
But even if you already know all the reasons you should straighten your teeth, you may feel hesitant, worried about the idea of spending months (or more) in metal braces. We completely understand! Who wants to compromise their professional or mature appearance?
You don’t have to anymore. When you choose our Boca Raton or West Palm Beach practice for orthodontics, you have more options than you might realize. We are proud to offer clear braces, an innovative new system for straightening teeth that doesn’t require either metal or brackets!
ClearCorrect Clear braces use translucent aligners that are worn over the teeth to nudge your teeth into their appropriate alignment.
Treatment with clear braces is simple. You just wear the aligners in the prescribed order, changing them out about every two weeks. You remove the aligners when you eat and also when you clean your teeth, which eliminates several of the major hassles associated with bracket braces.
Clear braces can solve many common orthodontic concerns; however, in some cases, bracket braces are more appropriate, particularly when misalignments are severe or your bite is involved. To find out if clear braces are right for you, call and schedule your consultation with Drs. Seth and Dari Shapiro!
