The Benefits of Clear Braces

March 12, 2020 3:21 am

At Meason Orthodontics in Weatherford, TX, we love providing orthodontic treatment that helps our patients achieve their dream smile. Because we know that each of our patients has individual needs, we offer a variety of different treatments to choose from. Today, we want to highlight our clear braces.

What Are Clear Braces?

Unlike traditional braces with metal brackets, clear braces are made from a transparent ceramic material. This makes them a discreet orthodontic solution, like clear aligner therapy. A major advantage of clear braces over clear aligner therapy is that braces are capable of handling more severe alignment issues. Clear aligner therapy, such as Invisalign®, can address mild to moderate misalignment but is limited in its scope when compared to braces.

Many patients put off orthodontic treatment because they worry braces will dramatically disrupt their appearance. Clear braces is an affordable and discreet way to achieve straighter, healthier teeth. This allows teenagers and adults to smile with confidence and participate in their regular social activities without feeling self-conscious.

How Do You Care for Clear Braces?

The ceramic brackets of clear braces are less noticeable against your natural teeth but can stain over time without the proper care. To maintain the “clear” benefit of the braces, you’ll want to drink plenty of water during meals and lightly brush your teeth after eating, especially if you’ve had dark-colored foods or beverages. This is in addition to your daily oral hygiene routine.

We schedule regular check-ins for our patients with clear braces. This way, Dr. Meason can keep a close eye on how well your teeth are moving. You’ll also want to schedule routine professional cleanings with your general dentist to keep your teeth and gumline clean and free of plaque and tartar.

How Much Do Clear Braces Cost?

Because each of our patients has different needs and goals when it comes to orthodontic treatment, orthodontics isn’t a one-size-fits-all treatment. During your orthodontic consultation, our team will work with you to provide an estimate for the cost of your treatment. We accept most major insurance plans and offer new patient specials. You can also finance your treatment with an affordable monthly plan via our in-house financing or CareCredit®.
