If you want to improve your smile by straightening your teeth, but are put off by the idea of wearing braces, Budd Orthodontics has a solution for you. For many adults and teenagers in the Phoenix Valley, clear braces and invisible aligners like Invisalign offer a number of significant advantages over traditional metal braces. You can smile confidently knowing your discreet braces or removable Invisalign aligners are practically invisible, allowing you to be your confident self at all times.
Like metal braces, clear braces are worn on the front of the teeth. However, most clear braces are made from ceramic, rendering them virtually invisible. In-Ovation® Clear Braces use a passive slide mechanism to maintain the archwires within the bracket to reduce friction and binding, which is more comfortable for patients relative to traditional braces that use elastics or clips to bind the archwires tightly against the teeth. When they are properly maintained, clear braces make an attractive and less noticeable alternative to metal braces.
Invisible aligners like Invisalign are a series of clear trays that straighten your teeth without the wires and brackets of braces. You can remove an aligner prior eating, drinking, flossing or brushing, and they are virtually imperceptible. Many teens and adults prefer invisible aligners because they are more convenient and comfortable while remaining highly effective at straightening teeth. Invisalign is also becoming increasingly more affordable, allowing you to perfect your smile at an affordable rate. Budd Orthodontics’ aligners are the clear alternative to adult braces.
Orthodontic treatment can be effective at any age, and it is never too late to get the smile you have always wanted. Delaying orthodontic correction can lead to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of tooth enamel or headaches and migraines.
