Are you an adult who wants to straighten their front teeth, but do not want to spend two to three years wearing comprehensive braces? Have you considered or heard about Six Month Smiles or ClearCorrect? Clear aligners are similar to clear braces specifically engineered to correct the alignment of your front teeth in just six months.
Comprehensive Braces vs. Clear Aligners
Comprehensive braces can be difficult to wear and take care of. You typically will have to schedule an appointment every four to six weeks to tighten your braces. You will also need to have meticulous, dental hygiene that is followed on a daily basis, and which can be quite challenging. If you do not follow a strict regimen for the duration of your treatment, the consequences can be disastrous! Plaque biofilm colonies will grow and etch stain lines and orthodontic spots all around the appliance hardware. Unchecked biofilm will create cavities, decay, and periodontitis.
What is my best option?
No matter what option you choose there will be benefits and drawbacks to each. Making the right choice is all about weighing your options so that they best match your individual needs. No orthodontic appliance is a hundred percent right for everyone.
