Many adults feel embarrassed because of misaligned teeth. Yet they shy away from fixing the issues, due to embarrassment at the idea of being the only people in their workplaces or college classrooms with noticeable metal braces. You may wish that you had worn braces as a teenager, but wishing won’t do anything to improve your smile. Fortunately, modern dentistry makes it possible to address alignment issues, now, without spending years wearing embarrassing and often uncomfortable metal braces. Instead, options like ClearCorrect and Invisalign make it possible to discreetly address alignment issues, effectively without negatively affecting your confidence in the process.
ClearCorrect and Invisalign Provide Discreet Treatment Options
If you want to correct your teeth’s alignment, without wearing metal braces, ClearCorrect and Invisalign make great options. Both are designed to correct esthetic and functional issues associated with misalignment, and both can do so without most people even realizing you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.
That is because each of these systems use a set of plastic aligner trays to help slowly shift the teeth into a better alignment. The trays are clear and BPA-free, helping make them almost unnoticeable and safe.
There Are Other Less Obvious Benefits, As Well
Another benefit to clear aligner trays is that because they are made entirely of plastic, there is no concern about patients getting poked by metal brackets or braces. This helps make the trays more comfortable for many patients, especially after adjusting to wearing the trays. You also don’t have to worry about irritating your sensitive gum tissue while wearing them.
