There’s More than Meets the Eye with Invisible Braces

Forget the bulky, uncomfortable metal braces of the past. Today, there are many more orthodontics treatments offered to straighten teeth and fix a misaligned bite. These orthodontics options are much less noticeable and uncomfortable, especially the new invisible braces.

The Clear Advantages of Invisible Braces

According to family orthodontics experts, invisible braces have become one of the most popular options for braces today. They have become so popular that they are now offered by most orthodontists in New Haven. Rather than having them placed on the front of your teeth like traditional metal braces, an orthodontist will attach them to the backs of the teeth, which makes them invisible from view. In addition to being less noticeable than traditional braces, they are much more comfortable because they can be completely customized to suit your smile needs. While they may be less affordable braces than metal, many orthodontists in New Haven offer financing, accept insurance, and take dental discount plans that make them into affordable braces.

The Option for All Ages

Braces are no longer only reserved for teens. Family orthodontics practices now place invisible braces on people of all ages, from older kids to adults. The only time traditional metal may be better is as braces for kids with major dental issues. But aside from being less ideal as braces for kids, invisible braces are often perfect for adults and teens looking for a discreet form of treatment.

How Invisible Braces are Applied

The first step in getting invisible braces is having a consultation with an orthodontist. If they’re ideal for your needs, impressions of your teeth will be made and sent to a dental lab that will scan them into a computer that uses 3-D imaging to customize the braces specifically for you. After about six weeks, the braces will be ready. You will return to the orthodontist where they will be attached. Then you can smile with comfort and confidence as you receive the treatment you need.
