Invisible braces have steadily grown in demand since the creation of orthodontics. Although the traditional version is still common, some patients find the appearance of metal braces too striking because they are darker and more apparent. Fortunately, we offer lingual braces (which are also made of wires and brackets) as another option. They have the same function as conventional aligners, but are “invisible” since they are attached at the back of the teeth.
On the plus side, patients can undergo conventional orthodontic treatment with greater comfort and ease in cleaning their teeth. On the other hand, invisible braces are more difficult to maintain because you cannot see them well. This translates to more visits to the dentist for adjustments. However, each patient has a unique preference when it comes to managing their dental concerns.
At Wortley Road Dental, we understand the potential cause for feeling self-conscious when it comes to your teeth. Whether your teeth are crooked or have gaps between them, we have seen some individuals who are hesitant to even smile. But other people have expressed concern that traditional braces to fix these issues tend to be difficult to conceal from other people.
If you would like to straighten your teeth, or you have another dental condition that might require orthodontics, invisible braces may be a suitable and worthwhile alternative to their more conspicuous counterpart. Traditional braces are generally considered less attractive.
To learn more about the option of invisible braces, we strongly encourage you to contact our dental clinic. Our knowledgeable dentists and friendly staff will be happy to meet with you to discuss whether they will be suitable for you.
