Are Invisible Braces for You?

Invisible braces are one of the most modern forms of orthodontics, allowing patients to get their teeth straightened and aligned without wearing the heavy metal hardware that most people associate with wearing braces. The material that invisible braces are made of is see-through and clear, and when worn over the teeth are much less obtrusive – many people may not notice someone is wearing them at all. Therefore, although these braces aren’t really “invisible,” they are far less visible than conventional braces.

The Invisible Braces Hudson WI look similar to a teeth whitening tray or a mouth guard, and are custom built for each person’s teeth. They are comfortable, removable, and are able to exert the amount of pressure necessary to begin to move your teeth into better alignment. As each alignment tray completes its job, a new one is created and worn until the desired effect is achieved. This is a slow and gradual process and may take a year or more to complete. Many people find the experience of wearing these invisible braces to be much more pleasant that conventional metal braces, which need to be tightened and can be painful.

Keeping invisible braces clean is also a much easier process than it is with conventional braces. People with metal braces often complain of getting food stuck inside the braces that can be difficult to access and remove. Invisible braces, being removable, are far simpler to clean – just pop them out and rinse them off, then put them back on your teeth. Since invisible braces are removed for eating, the problem of getting food stuck in them is virtually eliminated. There are also no metal hooks, wires, or rubber bands on the invisible braces to get caught on things or to irritate the inside of your mouth.

The outcome of visible braces can be very good, but it is somewhat dependent on the patient. The braces need to be worn for at least 22 hours a day, so a person who opts for clear braces Hudson WI should be highly motivated to wear them and should not be a forgetful type of person.
