Why Ottawa area patients may consider clear braces

When it comes to correcting misalignment and realigning the bite, many patients are turned off by the idea of traditional braces. Metal brackets and wires covering the teeth for months—sometimes years—at a time can be the number one reason teenagers and adults avoid talking to their dentist about orthodontics. However, with continued advances in materials and dental technology, patients can now enjoy a treatment called clear braces.

One popular brand of clear braces is Invisalign. Invisalign is known for providing patients with restored smiles by using clear aligner trays instead of brackets and wires. These trays are worn at all times, day and night, and only removed for cleaning the teeth and eating. Patients will notice their smile gradually improving, and can enjoy the benefits of orthodontics without the unsightly appearance of conventional braces.

Most patients choose Invisalign clear braces over old-fashioned treatments primarily for its discreet appearance. Invisalign aligner trays are made of clear plastic, and are custom-made to slide over the dental arch. They are practically indistinguishable on the smile and many others do not notice they are being worn. Additional benefits of Invisalign are:
  • Improved comfort
  • Discreet
  • No metal
  • Precise fit
  • Ability to remove aligners
  • Ability to take care of natural teeth with brushing and flossing
  • Ability to eat food without restrictions
  • Reduce gaps between teeth
  • Improve overbite, crossbite, and underbite
  • Affordability
  • Improved oral health
Additionally, Invisalign clear braces give patients the ability to change the smile in a way that does not interrupt self-confidence. This is why patients of all ages consider Invisalign therapy before facing an orthodontist to speak about traditional braces.
