If you are thinking about having your teeth straightened, you may be wondering if clear braces are the best option for you. At iSmile Specialists, we offer patients braces in Missouri City, and our dentist, Dr. Wael Kanaan, can talk to you about the different braces options that will work best in your particular situation.
Today, many people choose to have their teeth straightened with clear braces. This can be an exciting orthodontic treatment for patients who do not want to be seen wearing metal wires and brackets on their teeth. Treatment with clear braces in Missouri City involves the use of wearing clear plastic aligners which are created just for you. The first aligner will perfectly fit your teeth, and then will slowly move your teeth into position for the next aligner in the series. Once you have worn the last aligner in the series, you will have your new and straight smile. Your individual set of aligners will have a specific number of aligners in it based on the bite problem that is being corrected. Not all by problems, however, can be fixed with clear braces. Sometimes traditional braces are needed to address specific bite problems. Our orthodontists will be able to assess your individual bite situation and let you know if your bite problem can indeed be fixed with clear braces, or if traditional braces are needed. With clear braces, you can eat anything you want during the treatment process because the clear plastic aligners are removed during meals. Also, patients can more easily keep their teeth cleaned with clear braces, because the clear braces are removed for brushing and flossing, as well. With regular traditional braces, it is more difficult to clean your teeth. Also, our patients find that clear braces are particularly comfortable since they do not need to have any metal parts on their teeth are in their mouth.
