3 Myths About Clear Braces

If you’re tired of having crooked teeth and avoid smiling just because of that, we might have a solution for you. You can now wear clear aligners, otherwise known as clear braces if you don’t feel like wearing standard braces. However, there are a few myths that might be stopping you from doing so.

Let’s get into them and bust them one myth at a time.

Myth # 1 – They’re Pricier Than Braces

Many people avoid getting clear braces because they think they might be more expensive than the standard braces. However, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Clear braces might not be cheaper than typical braces, but they’re definitely not more expensive. Purchasing clear braces is surely a great investment if you’re looking to restore your beautiful smile.

Myth # 2 – Treatments Take Longer Than Standard Braces

Another myth floating around is that getting treatments with clear braces can take longer than otherwise. If anything, it takes lesser time, as clear braces can also be changed at home, which means you’ll have to make fewer trips to the dental office. Acceleration techniques can also help speed up the process of clear braces, with the whole treatment lasting just six months.

Myth # 3 – They’re Uncomfortable to Wear

Clear braces are thin and designed in such a way that wearing and removing them is easy. In fact, getting braces installed on your teeth may be trickier, as such steel wires take time to get on and off.

If you want to know more about how clear braces can help you restore your smile and fix your teeth, we’d suggest you get in touch with Dr. Josh Kelly and visit Severance Dental right away and learn everything there’s to know about myths regarding clear braces.
