Clear Braces at Braces Braces
Helping Families Achieve Happier, Healthier Smiles.
Clear braces are affordable and efficient, combining the best of both traditional braces and Invisalign aligners. This treatment option is less expensive and less responsibility than Invisalign, but more discreet than traditional braces. The ceramic material we use is also extremely durable, but softer than traditional metal. Clear braces are a great option to get the straighter smile you want with a less noticeable look during the in-between treatment period.
Made with tooth-colored ceramic brackets and clear/white wires and bands, clear braces are designed to blend in with your teeth. This treatment is a great option for kids, teens and adults who want the aesthetic appeal of subtle orthodontics.
How to Take Care of Clear Braces
Today’s clear braces are designed to resist stains, but it’s still important for patients to care for them properly. While the brackets will not stain, the small and porous rubber bands used for braces can stain. This is especially true if you drink a lot of stain-causing beverages. With that being said, we change the rubber bands every time you come in for an adjustment, so you’ll always have new bands in about a month’s time.
Ideally, you should brush and floss twice a day and rinse frequently throughout the day, especially after meals. Clear brackets are slightly larger than traditional brackets, so it’s even more important to do this to prevent food from getting under your wires and leading to cavities or decay. You may need to use special flossers to make flossing with braces easier.
If our orthodontists determine that this clear orthodontic solution is best for you or a family member, we will provide you with specific care instructions for your braces. This can include best cleaning practices, specific foods to avoid during treatment, and more.
How to Handle Issues With Clear Braces
Sometimes issues may arise with your clear braces. If you feel scratches on the side of your mouth, you may want to dab some wax on your brackets. Your orthodontist will give you wax when you get the braces.
If a wire comes loose, you should contact your orthodontist. The team at Braces Braces will let you know if you can clip the wire and wait for your next appointment, or if you need to come in for an emergency appointment. Similarly, in the rare case that a bracket comes loose, you should also contact your orthodontist.
How to Decide on the Right Type of Braces for You
You can choose from traditional metal braces, clear braces or Invisalign aligners at Braces Braces. Not all types of braces will fit all orthodontic needs, and they don’t all fit every budget either. Visit one of our eight offices located around Atlanta to talk to one of the experienced orthodontists here. Our team loves helping patients find the right treatment plan! For a fully comprehensive experience, we look into not just why braces are needed, but the overall health of your mouth.
To determine how the different orthodontic treatments will address your needs and goals, your orthodontist will go over what you hope to achieve with braces, examine and assess the mouth, and take digital X-rays of the teeth. Orthodontic treatment fixes a number of issues with function and appearance. We begin to develop a customized treatment plan at your very first consultation.
The Braces Braces team is also available to help you navigate the financial reality of braces, so it’s not a burden on your budget. Our practice accepts most major insurance plans and offers multiple financing options.
