Clear Braces Q & A

What are clear braces?

Clear braces are an invisible, comfortable orthodontic solution in the form of aligners. They provide the same benefits as traditional braces, such as jaw and bite realignment, while offering a removable, easy-to-clean solution. Traditional braces attach to your teeth using an adhesive. Clear braces fit snugly around the teeth and remove easily when it’s time to clean your teeth.

Issaquah Dental Care offers clear braces that look discreet and come in various brands, including Orthofx™ and Invisalign®. The appearance of traditional braces is unsightly for some, causing many adults to prefer clear braces for their orthodontic needs.

Are clear braces effective?

Clear braces effectively fix crooked teeth and jaw misalignment. However, clear braces tend to be slightly less sturdy than traditional braces, resulting in comparatively slightly longer treatment times. Additionally, there’s the potential to lose trays, which minimizes effectiveness and prolongs results. 

Contact your orthodontist to replace missing aligners and ensure your treatment plan stays on track.

Do I need clear braces?

When consulting an Issaquah Dental Care expert, they will assess for certain criteria, including:

  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Overcrowding
  • Gaps
  • Crossbites
  • Overlapping

Clear braces may best serve you if you possess any of these common alignment issues. They will discuss your treatment options and help you create an actionable plan.

Are clear braces safe?

Clear braces prove a safe option when applied properly. Moving teeth requires advanced medical knowledge. You should never purchase over-the-counter alignment systems. Instead, it’s best to rely on educated professionals that can safely supply your orthodontic needs. This reduces adverse risks and ensures a healthy, well-aligned jaw.

Additionally, clear braces are removed easily, simplifying the care process for your teeth. Flossing and brushing regularly help prevent additional dental conditions, such as infection. This makes clear braces a safer option when considering your total health. 

How affordable are clear braces?

On average, clear braces and aligner systems are a bit more expensive. Additionally, treatment costs depend on the length of treatment. Ballpark estimates place clear braces around $3500-$8000, whereas traditional braces range roughly from $2500-$6000.

Luckily, most dental insurance plans offer coverage for common orthodontic procedures, including traditional and clear braces. Check with your insurance provider and ask about the orthodontic services included with your specific plan. Additionally, Issaquah Dental Care can help you navigate treatment and payment options.
