If you're looking for a cost-effective way to straighten your teeth, clear aligners are a great option. Clear aligners are a removable, invisible alternative to braces that are often the best choice for adults. There are now a variety of low-cost, transparent tooth aligner options available, and each one has its own advantages and disadvantages. It's important to consider a few factors when making your decision, such as the cost, comfort level, and amount of time it takes to get real results.
ClearCorrect is one of the most popular clear aligner brands and is often less expensive than the industry giant, Invisalign. Byte's BPA-free polymer aligners are also stain and tear resistant and are so transparent that no one will notice you're wearing them. In terms of comfort, ClearCorrect's material exerts a gentle but consistent force against the teeth, unlike many clear aligners that are somewhat stiff and less comfortable. Invisalign clear aligners are thicker, but have been innovatively designed to promote greater comfort.
Most transparent product brands offer some form of funding or monthly payment plan to help you pay the full cost of treatment, but not all of them are structured the same way. You can choose to wear your aligners for 22 hours a day with the system that lasts all day or choose the nighttime system, which requires you to wear them a little more than 10 hours a night while you sleep so that they stay in place. And because they also produce Clarity Clear braces, they can offer a combination treatment for the limited number of cases that aligners can't address on their own. Invisalign is still considered the gold standard for clear alignment marks, and since you'll be undergoing regular in-person checkups with an orthodontist, that's the smartest way to do it if you have any complications that require specialized medical attention.
Remember that if something difficult happens to your mouth or because of your medical situation, you should talk to your dentist before starting any of the cheap, transparent aligner systems for home use.
