The Orthodontics Center of NYC (located on the Upper East Side in Manhattan) offer clear braces (invisible braces) for teens and adults. Clear braces are a very popular orthodontic braces treatment elected by our teen and adult patients. Clear braces blend in with teeth, help teeth move faster, and make braces easier to clean while eliminating the less desirable appearance and hygiene issues of ordinary braces. We offer orthodontic clear braces / invisible braces consultation.
- Clear braces feature inconspicuous clear – or sometimes tooth-colored – ceramic brackets, which blend in with your teeth, providing a less obvious alternative to fixed metal braces
- Clear braces work in a similar way as traditional fixed braces, using a thin wire to gently move your brackets and teeth
- While clear braces aren’t as discreet as alternatives like lingual braces and removable clear aligners (such as Invisalign), they are excellent at straightening teeth
The most contemporary clear braces that the Orthodontics Center of NYC offer includes self-ligating brackets, which use a clip to hold the wire in place instead of elastic bands (making the braces even more discrete). The benefits of these brackets are that your orthodontic appointments are much faster, and your braces will be easier to keep clean. Most importantly, self-ligating braces create less friction, so we can move your teeth using lighter forces. They can also gently widen the arch of your smile, allowing us to treat some cases of crowding without having to remove any teeth.
Pros of clear braces:
- Less noticeable than metal braces
- Faster treatment time than lingual braces
- Aesthetically pleasing (significantly less noticeable)
Greater Comfort without Tightening
Clear braces use clips that do not need to be “tightened” and are gentle to the teeth and tissues. Clinical studies show that this modern orthodontic braces system provides more comfortable orthodontic treatment than traditional metal braces.
Fewer Office Visits
With modern clear braces, orthodontic treatments require fewer office visits than traditional braces and invisible aligners. On average, patients treated with this modern system reduce their average treatment time by six months, when compared to patients who undergo traditional orthodontic treatment. That means more convenience for you regardless of your level of busy activity or lifestyle.
Easy to Keep Clean
Clinical studies indicate that the elastomeric rings of traditional braces collect more bacteria and plaque and can lead to adverse gingival conditions. Unlike traditional braces most types of clear braces do not use elastomeric rings, so your braces are easy to keep clean.
