Orthodontic Options

Orthodontics is focused on aligning the upper and lower teeth into an ideal bite. There are various orthodontic options on the market. At Create A Smile in Bloomington IN, we offer clear braces.

Clear braces bring your teeth into proper alignment but make orthodontic treatment less conspicuous. The proper name for them is “aligners.” They look a lot like an athlete’s mouth guard.

You wear a series of them to put pressure on your teeth, which is what brings them into alignment. Each new aligner is worn from one to two weeks. A new set changes the alignment and pressure slightly, so that in time, you have an ideal bite.

Some of the benefits of clear braces:

  • Inconspicuous: People standing just a few feet away from you may not even realize you’re wearing them.
  • Removable: As noted, they must be worn most of the time. But you can take them out for meals and for flossing and brushing before bed.
  • A Lack of Metal:¬†With clear braces, you can guarantee to have no invasive metal in your mouth. This makes your dental health routine easier to maintain than traditional braces.

Aligners are typically worn at least twenty-two hours a day. It may be tempting to remove them sometimes, but it is in your best interest to wear them for the recommended time.

To find out whether clear braces are right for you, please call us at Create A Smile in Bloomington IN to schedule a consultation. People from Spencer, Ellettsville, and Bedford also come to us for other cosmetic dentistry options. Contact us today!
