Pure Aligners – A Clear Alternative to Braces and Invisalign

For a long time braces have been associated with teenage awkwardness. And while the brace-face stage is almost a rite of passage, no more! These days, more and more adults are choosing orthodontic treatment to get their perfect smile. Some make the choice to correct untreated bite and spacing issues, others to maintain previous orthodontic treatment they had as a teen, and most simply choose it for cosmetic reasons.

 Although more adults are choosing teeth straightening, you might not know it thanks to recent developments in orthodontic devices and treatments that make them nearly invisible. Invisalign was the first to produce clear braces for adults, but they are no longer the only option for easy, discreet teeth straightening.

 Clear aligners a clear winner for adult teeth straightening

Clear aligners are the most popular braces alternative. Custom-made, clear plastic trays fit snugly over the teeth, gradually shifting them into place. Treatment involves a series of aligners which are worn for a set period of time each, progressively moving the teeth into alignment.

 Thanks to their thin, clear construction, aligners are nearly invisible. This makes them an attractive choice for eligible adults who aren’t keen on seeing their treatment choice in the mirror every day.

 Not only are they invisible aligners are super easy to use. Aligners are worn all the time, except when eating, drinking, and brushing and flossing. And you don’t have to worry about broken brackets and bent wires if you eat something hard or sticky. With removable aligners, you won’t have to turn down Aunt Becky’s pecan pie at Thanksgiving!

 Another advantage of removable aligners over traditional braces is that it is easier to keep teeth and gums clean and healthy during treatment, as long as you are committed and diligent with your oral hygiene. Because aligners are removable, food is less likely to be trapped by them, and brushing and flossing are as straightforward as ever. With clear aligners, you simply remove the device, brush and floss like normal, and put it back in! To keep things extra fresh, clean the aligner by dropping it in a glass with water and retainer cleaner while you brush. You’re a multitasking whizz!

 Although some more complex or severe conditions still require the sheer force of traditional metal braces, clear aligners are a treatment option for most people who want a better smile. Aligners can be successfully used to treat or improve bite problems, crowding, gapped teeth and crooked teeth.

 An Invisalign alternative

 Invisalign was the first company to offer clear aligners. Since aligners are able to treat so many conditions and have so many advantages over braces, it’s not surprising that Invisalign is expensive. When used by orthodontists in traditional, in-office treatment clear aligners are typically more expensive than traditional braces – ranging from $3,500 to $8,000.
