What Are Clear Braces?

Clear braces are removable clear aligner trays that easily slip over your teeth. Like conventional braces, you’ll wear these throughout the day. But unlike metal braces, you’ll be able to take them off for brushing your teeth and eating. Clear braces are much more discreet than traditional braces, and most of your friends and family won’t even notice you’re wearing them. At The Dental Office at Chestnut Hill, we often recommend this option for those with crowded or crooked teeth, for those with crowded or crooked teeth, or gaps between teeth.

Understanding How Clear Braces Work

Clear braces work much the same as regular metal braces. The series of clear aligners applies slight pressure to the teeth, resulting in movement in the direction of the pressure. As the tooth moves through the mouth to the appropriate position, the pressure lessens. Once the pressure has subsided, you’ll need to replace your clear braces with a new set of aligners designed to finish the desired movement of the teeth. At the end of this process, many patients come away with the straight, bright smile they’ve always wanted.
