Clear Ceramic Braces
If you want to straighten your teeth but don’t want to wear traditional metal braces, clear braces could be the ideal solution for you. Dr. Ray Melendez offers this alternative treatment method at Oak Park Orthodontist in San Antonio, Texas. You can achieve the smile you desire while keeping your treatment discreet from others.
How Clear Braces Differ from Metal Braces
With typical braces, an orthodontist affixes metal brackets to each individual tooth that stay together with small wires. You must have them tightened approximately once a month throughout the duration of treatment, which is typically at least two years. You need to abide by several food restrictions so you don’t break the brackets or wires, and it’s not possible to remove the braces until the end of treatment.
Treatment Expectations with Clear Braces
Clear braces give the same high quality that traditional braces produce but with better aesthetics. Today’s clear brackets match the tooth much better than in the past.
