Why Clear Braces Are Perfect for Busy Parents

Clear braces are trendy for busy people looking to achieve a perfectly aligned smile. At Palm Beach Orthodontics, we run a family-oriented boutique practice focused on cosmetic and functional dental services. Our board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Angela, treats local doctors, families, celebrities, and more. Clear dental braces are the perfect solution if you’re a busy parent. Here are five reasons why:

  1. Removable

Clear aligners are invisible and removable. The braces feature comfortable acrylic trays that straighten your teeth like traditional metal braces. Busy parents can spend less time worrying about how their eating patterns affect their brace treatment. Using clear aligners allows you to eat/drink whatever you want. You can remove them when eating and wear them after to continue straightening your teeth.

Cleaning and flossing are also easier with removable clear braces. You can remove them and brush them like you usually do. When you have fixed braces, you have to work around them. At Palm Beach Orthodontics, we provide premium quality clear braces, including plastic and clear ceramic braces. Our clear aligners are easy to wear, remove, clean, and maintain. They’re also metal-free, so you don’t have to worry about mouth abrasions during your treatment.

  1. Comfortable

Clear aligners are the perfect choice for busy parents who don’t want to draw attention to their ongoing treatment. The braces are also comfortable and easy to wear. Traditional metal braces and ceramic aligners are designed to be comfortable but may take time to adjust to. Most users report discomfort and a metallic taste at the beginning of treatment. Metal braces are also harder to clean and may increase the risk of gum disease and recession.

Clear aligners are gentle on your teeth and perfectly invisible, so no one will notice your brace treatment. Busy parents with cosmetic concerns can use clear aligners to reduce the anxiety and discomfort associated with traditional metal braces. At Palm Beach Orthodontics, we offer high-quality clear braces that make slight tooth movements to correct your smile. Your aligners are replaced every couple of weeks to give you the best outcome without discomfort.

  1. Shorter Appointments

Wearing clear orthodontic braces will give you shorter appointments than traditional metal braces. Our clear aligners are made of acrylic trays modeled according to your specific teeth. The trays exert slight pressure to correct any misalignments. You’ll receive a new set of braces every couple of weeks to pick up where the last one left off. These appointments are short and don’t involve the adjustments required for conventional braces.

Metal braces appointments involve replacing the rubber holding the wire and braces, removing the wires, brushing & flossing. The orthodontist will also place new rubber banks onto the braces. No such procedures exist with clear aligners. Our orthodontist will design a graduated series of aligners customized to your requirements. The appointments are all about assessing your progress. Busy parents can use clear aligners to reduce the time spent at a dental clinic.

  1. Easy to Use

Cleaning clear aligners take less time and effort. You can save time brushing, flossing, and eating. Metal braces require a more meticulous cleaning and flossing approach, which can take a lot of time because they’re fixed. Wearing metal braces has many restrictions on what you can eat or drink. Some foods and drinks can stain your teeth and make them harder to clean. You’ll also need more time to clean and floss each tooth without affecting the braces.

Clear aligners offer an effortless way to correct your smile. The treatment requires low maintenance and gives you the freedom to live normally. You don’t need any extra work to clean your mouth. The trays are also easy to clean and have no restrictions for use in sports or other activities. You don’t need mouthguards or any special care other than brushing and flossing, making the aligners perfect for busy parents.

  1. Shorter Treatment

The length of brace treatment depends on the severity of misalignment and adherence to treatment requirements. Severe misalignment will take longer to correct. Disregarding your orthodontist’s recommendations can also slow down treatment. Clear aligners offer faster treatment than traditional metal braces if all things are constant. The average treatment duration is 14 to 33 months for clear aligners like Invisalign.

Metal braces require an average of 20 months and may take longer. Your teeth are also at a higher risk of staining and discoloration when using metal braces. Clear aligners fit right into your schedule if you’re busy, and the results are quick and progressive. You can see the changes within a few weeks of wearing the clear trays. With metal braces, you must wait at least a year or longer for the dental aid to reshape your bite.
