Let’s face it. With school, sports, dating and hanging out with friends, getting metal braces probably isn’t at the top of your list of things you want to do. Well, we have great news for you. Now, you can straighten your smile without anyone even knowing using clear aligners! With no metal brackets and wires, you’re free to enjoy the things that make these the best times of your life.
Clear aligners are made of a smooth, clear plastic that is virtually invisible. Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them. You’ll enjoy the confidence of showing off your smile every day.
If you have any friends with metal braces, you know that there are certain foods that are restricted with braces. With traditional metal braces, you are not allowed to chew gum, or eat foods such as popcorn, nuts or crunchy or chewy candy. With clear aligners, your aligners are removable so you can eat all the foods you enjoy whenever you want. This also means you can brush and floss normally to maintain great oral hygiene.
Whether you play sports or a musical instrument, metal brackets and wires can potentially make those activities a bit harder. With clear aligners, you can remove your aligners for those activities. Just be sre to pop them back in right after! No matter what treatment you choose, make sure you wear a mouth guard if you play contact sports! It can save your smile!
