Imagine braces that don’t have any metal, but are as effective those that do. Braces that are more comfortable and manageable than metal braces. Sound too good to be true? It isn’t! Clear braces from Green Dentistry in San Francisco are changing the way we straighten teeth.
Clear braces are made of lightweight synthetic material. They look like a mouth guard you might wear when playing sports, or a night guard you could wear while sleeping. Technically they aren’t even called braces, they are called aligners.
We offer clear braces from Invisalign, a leading maker of aligners. You wear a series of them over a period of months. Individually designed with special computer software, each new aligner increases the pressure on your teeth just a little bit. In time, this ever-increasing pressure brings them into ideal alignment.
Aligners have a number of advantages over metal braces:
- Nearly undetectable. Since they’re clear, people standing just a few feet away may not know you’re wearing them. (Teenagers, take note!)
- Removeable. You can pop your aligner out at mealtime, and to brush and floss.
- Comfortable. Metal braces have drawbacks like abrasions inside the cheeks. Clear braces? Not an issue.
