To correct malocclusion, a growing number of patients and doctors prefer clear aligners to traditional wires and brackets, due to advantages such as:
No dietary restrictions
No obstructions to flossing or brushing
Controlled single-tooth movement
Remote monitoring options
Compared to traditional wires & brackets, clear aligners are:
Comfortable – Compared to traditional wires and brackets, clear aligners are comfortable.
Removable – It’s easy to remove aligners and eat whatever you like. There are no wires to trap food or get in the way when you floss.
Discreet – Clear aligners show off your smile, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
