If you are searching Marina del Rey for clear orthodontic aligners, Elegant Dentistry has what you need. Unlike traditional braces, which use metal wires and brackets to gradually shift teeth into proper alignment, clear aligners make use of hard, transparent plastic to achieve the same goal. Clear aligners have clear advantages over wire and bracket braces because they are removable, not highly visible, and tend to require shorter treatment periods.
Clear aligners are ideal for those who value discretion, especially adults who do not wish to go to work or socialize with obvious wire braces. Clear braces help patients to retain their self-confidence in all of their dealings because they are nearly invisible.
Clear aligners can also be removed, making eating a great deal more convenient. Ask any tween or teenager who’s had them, traditional braces are known to trap food particles next to teeth causing stains and other unsavory problems if not adequately cleaned. Better yet, this also means that patients have little to no food restrictions, unlike traditional braces that bar a number of popular foods for the duration.
Another perk of clear aligners is that they tend to be much more comfortable than traditional braces. Most patients tend to feel very little discomfort, if any. These braces come in several brands but are best known under the brand name, Invisalign.
