Invisalign Clear Braces: Essential Information and FAQs

If you are not well-versed in orthodontics, you might not know much about clear aligners or how they compare as an alternative to traditional braces. So, what are they, and how exactly do they work? Read on for more information.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign clear aligners are an orthodontic treatment that serves as an alternative to metal braces. They are composed of a clear plastic that is somewhat flexible. And, unlike other braces, they are completely removable.

How Invisible Braces Work

Invisible braces work the same as the traditional ones. Each set gently forces teeth toward a different alignment. You need to wear several consecutive pairs of invisible braces according to instructions to complete the realignment.

Advantages of Clear Braces

  • Discreet appearance: It is much harder to tell if someone is wearing clear aligners versus obvious metal braces. Also, you can remove them for short periods, such as for special events. So, no one necessarily even needs to know you wear them.
  • Better hygiene: Because these braces are removable, you will have an easier time keeping your mouth clean and healthy while fixing your smile.
  • More comfortable: The soft plastic material of these aligners makes for a more comfortable fit and feel overall.

How to Care for Clear Braces

After each time you eat, you should remove your braces and brush your teeth. You should also brush and rinse your braces so that they do not trap food and bacteria against your teeth and gums.
