Are Removable Braces Right for You?

If you are considering braces but hesitate because you don’t want the stigma and discomfort, it’s time that you discovered the latest form of braces that are invisible and removable. See if this orthodontics option is the right choice for you.

The Rise of Removable Braces

Traditional braces have a bad reputation because their metal brackets and wires are noticeable and uncomfortable. But today, advances in family orthodontics have led to new kinds of orthodontics that are removable and invisible. These braces have become so popular that they’re now readily available from most orthodontists in Thorndale.

The Clear Difference

According to experts in family orthodontics, the most common type of removable braces is called Invisalign dental aligners and they are available from almost all orthodontists in Thorndale. They feature a series of clear aligners that are worn for most of the day and replaced by an orthodontist about every two weeks. Each new set of aligners is designed to gradually move teeth into their proper position. The aligners are only removed for eating, drinking, and cleaning teeth. The average treatment is between 18 and 30 months. The main advantages of these braces include:

  • Better appearance because they blend into the natural color of teeth.
  • Greater self-confidence because they are invisible from view.
  • More comfort because they lack metal brackets and wires that can irritate gums.
  • Most convenience since they are removed when eating, drinking, and cleaning teeth so they don’t affect daily function or oral hygiene.

When Removable Braces are Best

Generally, an orthodontist will recommend these newer removable, invisible braces to people with minor to moderate orthodontics needs. This makes them ideal for adults and teens that are self-conscious about wearing braces. Since children usually have more complex needs, they are not the braces for kids. It’s important to realize that their removable nature means they can be easily misplaced, which is why they are not the best braces for kids. Plus, their design and convenience make them less affordable braces than other options. If cost is a concern, financing and insurance can make them into affordable braces for you.
