Clear aligners offer a number of advantages over traditional metal braces. Unlike braces, they can be removed at will, allowing you to eat, drink, brush, and floss your teeth without any restrictions. This makes them a great option for those who want to maintain their oral hygiene while undergoing orthodontic treatment. However, it's important to note that clear aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours each day in order to achieve the desired results.
Another benefit of transparent aligners is that they are completely dependent on patient cooperation. This means that you can easily keep track of your progress by simply leaving them on, except for eating or brushing your teeth. However, if you find yourself tempted to take them out more often than you should, traditional metal braces may be a better option since they cannot be removed at will. At Bradford Family Dentistry, we understand the importance of finding the right orthodontic treatment for your needs.
