What are clear braces for teens?
Clear braces are nearly invisible thin clear brackets that are attached to each tooth and linked with each other using a thin wire to put pressure on the teeth, causing them to move slowly in the desired direction. They work in a similar fashion as traditional metal braces except that the brackets are made from clear transparent ceramic material. The brackets and wires can be tooth-colored to make ceramic braces less visible.
What orthodontic conditions do clear braces treat?
Typical treatment options are for common misalignment problems such as crowded teeth, crossbites, open bites, underbites, spaced teeth, and advanced tooth wear.
Will clear braces be easily noticeable to others at school?
Clear braces are not easily noticeable and cannot interfere with your daily activities. You can easily carry on a conversation at school or practice without anyone realizing you’re wearing clear braces.
