Are you thinking about straightening your teeth? You may be able to skip those old-fangled metal braces, the bane of teenagers in an earlier era. Clear braces from Pinnacle Dental Associates in Albany make teeth straightening a whole new ballgame.
Unlike traditional metal braces, clear braces have are no wires or brackets or rubber bands. Even better, they are almost undetectable to people who are standing just a few feet away from you.
The proper name for clear braces is “aligners.” They look a lot like an athlete’s mouth guard. You wear a series of them to put pressure on your teeth, which is what brings them into alignment. Each set of aligners is worn from one to two weeks before you go to a new set. The new set changes the alignment slightly, so that in time, you have an ideal bite.
Clear braces are so undetectable that some people call them invisible. Of course, they are not invisible, but they’re really close. They are made from clear plastic, which is what makes them so subtle.
One of the things that people like best about clear braces is that they are removable. You can take them out at mealtime, and when you brush your teeth at night. For the best results, however, they should be worn for at least twenty-two hours each day.
