There are few dental advancements that are more appreciated than modern braces. At The Steele Creek Denteist in Charlotte we offer clear braces that are so discreet, some people like to call them invisible.
Teeth straightening hardware of the past had many drawbacks. It often involved a whole orthodontic toolkit—metal bands, headgear, elastics, spacers, and wires poking every which way. If you played an instrument that required the use of your mouth, well, it wasn’t easy.
Many orthodontic patients found those old metal braces downright uncomfortable, bulky, and ugly. They also created many hidden nooks and crannies for bacteria to quietly drill into your enamel.
We’re happy to say that there is now a better option. At the Steele Creek Dentist we offer clear braces that are more properly called aligners. They look a lot like an athlete’s mouth guard. You wear a series of these clear braces over many months to gradually bring your teeth into proper alignment.
Clear braces are more than just discreet. They are also removeable. That means you can slide them out at mealtime, and when it’s time to floss and brush. You still need to wear them most of the time: most experts agree that aligners should be worn at least twenty-two hours a day.
The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte offers clear braces from Invisalign. They can straighten the teeth of teenagers and adults alike. Call our office to learn more, or to schedule your next cleaning and checkup.
