Have you been given the dreaded news that you need braces? When you think about them you’re probably thinking about the painful metal ones, but there is another option.
Clear braces can not only be more comfortable but make caring for your teeth, and eating your favorite foods way easier. They look completely natural and are way safer than the metal ones as well. So, know you don’t have to get metal braces, there is another option.
In this article, we’re going to delve deeper into this second option and tell you a little more about the benefits you’ll receive from them.
1. They’re More Comfortable
You won’t have to have any metal or wire on your teeth if you go with the clear option, which means you won’t have to deal with going to get them tightened. The metal ones also have to stay in your mouth until your doctor removes them. Clear ones can be removed at any time.
After a week or so of wearing clear braces, you probably won’t even be able to tell that you have them on.
2. They Make Dental Hygiene Easier
Metal braces make dental hygiene a little difficult. If you can’t brush your teeth properly you risk tooth decay and gum disease.
If you have clear braces, you can just pop them off and brush, floss, and rinse with mouthwash like normal.
3. You Don’t Have to Give Up Eating things You Love
With metal braces come a long list of foods and drinks that you can no longer have. It can be awful to not have popcorn at the movies for five years or so.
You won’t have to give up any foods on that list when you have clear braces. You can easily remove them so you can eat, brush, floss, and put them right back in.
4. They Look Completely Natural
When you’re a teenager in school, hearing that you have to get braces can feel like a death sentence. Kids can be cruel and some people don’t like the metal messing up their smile.
The clear ones look completely natural so not only will you not feel like you’re wearing them, but nobody will be able to tell you’re wearing them either.
5. They’re Safer for Your Mouth
Metal braces aren’t the safest thing for your mouth. This is because not only can they cause cavities if you can’t brush correctly, the metal and wire can really scratch up the inside of your mouth and gums.
Clear braces are smooth. They don’t have any of these jagged pieces coming off of them, so your teeth stay perfectly safe.
