Clear Braces Essex

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

Braces are an effective way of aligning teeth and giving you a clear, confident smile. Unfortunately they are also unfortunately associated with social awkwardness. Thankfully the technology has advanced significantly in recent years meaning that Clear braces Essex can allow you to get the benefits of braces without them being clearly visible.

What are the benefits of clear braces?

Straighten crooked or misaligned teeth
Close the gaps and spaces between teeth
Twist round teeth that have been rotated
Fix teeth that may have been affected by botched treatments
Get teeth straightened before you get veneers
Improve your bite, making eating easier in the long term


Sounds good. But how does it work?

Quite simply the braces work in a similar way to the normal type. The difference is that the material they are made from is a clear plastic. This means that you can only really tell someone is wearing them if you look very closely.

Won’t those things get in the way of eating? What if I want to eat corn on the cob?

If braces have to be fixed there are inevitably some difficulties with what you can and cannot eat (plus you have to be careful with cleaning them to ensure there is no food wedged on them that could potentially encourage the growth of bacteria).

With clear braces these problems can be solved very simply- just take them out! This can equally be done before you go to sleep, do sports and so forth, allowing you to do normal activities without fear of them coming loose.

How does the process work?

First of all you consult the cosmetic dentist who explains the process. Often a computer scan will be used to show you how the braces will fit on your teeth. Once this has been done a series of sliders will be placed over the teeth so they can be fitted.

How long does the procedure take?

This depends on your oral health and individual circumstances. However in general the process generally takes around 12 months. In relative terms this is not that long, with 18 months the norm for older models of braces. As the technology advances this period will get shorter and shorter!

Will I have to do regular check ups afterwards?

A few regular check ups will be needed after the braces have been fitted in order to make sure they are properly aligned. This in turn ensures that the teeth are going to the right position that you get the results you want at the end of the 12 month period.
