Looking for Clear Braces in Carnes Hill, Edensor Park or Edmondson Park? Make an Appointment at Attractive Orthodontics Today!
Traditional braces are a long-used and much-proven method for straightening teeth and creating beautiful smiles. For some patients, though—particularly teens or adults who are getting braces later than usual—the thought of putting metal wires and brackets in their mouths is enough to encourage further orthodontic avoidance.
If you are someone who is interested in working on straightening teeth and improving your overall oral health, but find braces particularly unsightly, fear not! There are alternative methods available, such as Invisalign or clear braces. And while some orthodontists in the Carnes Hill, Edensor Park and Edmondson Park areas don’t offer clear braces services, Attractive Orthodontics is not one of them. On the contrary, Dr. Adrian Tan, our orthodontist, is not just trained and experienced in traditional braces, but also in clear braces and other more cutting edge treatments.
The Benefits of Getting Clear Braces Done in Edensor Park, Carnes Hill or Edmondson Park
While they are undeniably effective in helping to straighten teeth, traditional metal braces tend to elicit a number of complaints that may make patients reluctant to agree to that type of orthodontic treatment. In addition to the thought of ‘hiding their smile’ for months or years at a time, some patients worry that metal braces will greatly limit the food they are able to eat, interfere with their speech and make teeth cleaning an exercise in futility.
For patients who are worried about these drawbacks to traditional braces, clear braces are the obvious solution. Not only do clear braces offer a way of straightening your teeth in a fashion that won’t be visually obvious to everyone who gets a glimpse of your teeth, but they also don’t interfere with speech, eating or teeth cleaning at all. In other words, by calling Attractive Orthodontics and setting up an appointment to talk about clear braces in Edmondson Park, Carnes Hill or Edensor Park, you will be opening yourself to all of the benefits of traditional braces without any of their perceived drawbacks!
A State-of-the-Art Treatment
So if Invisalign and other clear braces are so patient-friendly, why haven’t they replaced traditional braces as the norm? For one thing, clear braces—while effective for treating many orthodontic issues, like crowding of the front teeth—they are also less effective than traditional braces for treating many other problems. An appointment with Dr. Tan at Attractive Orthodontics will be necessary to determine if clear braces are the right choice for you, or if traditional metal braces would yield better results.
The other reason that clear braces aren’t commonplace yet is that they are still a relatively new, state-of-the-art technology. Invisalign only unveiled the concept of clear sequential aligners in the 1990s, and many orthodontists are neither trained to implement the treatment method, nor have the equipment necessary to do so. Luckily for you, Dr. Tan is trained in Invisalign, and we do have the 3D modelling technology necessary to implement the treatment, so if you are looking to learn more about clear braces in Edmonson Park, Carnes Hill or Edensor Park, Attractive Orthodontics is the place to go!
