At Home Vs In-Surgery Clear Braces

Welcome to today’s blog, focusing on clear braces. Here we’ll describe what they are, what their advantages are, and whether to have treatment at home, or in our Loughborough dental practice.

What are clear braces?

Clear braces are a type of brace that’s see-through, and so offers a discreet option for orthodontic treatment. Adults and teenagers both invest in the treatment, which is often offered under Invisalign, the leading clear brace provider.

What are the advantages of clear braces?

As you might have guessed, their transparency means you can have treatment without others knowing – ideal if you’re self-conscious about your smile. Invisalign is also removable, so can be taken out for eating, dental hygiene and short breaks. Finally, clear braces are easy to keep clean and can be stored in a special case when not being worn.

Why have treatment at home?

At-home treatment offers great flexibility for our patients. You could have a virtual consultation to assess your smile or check-in with your dentist online if you need advice or support. Clear brace treatment involves wearing a series of plastic aligners, which you change every couple of weeks. These can be delivered directly to you, saving time on visiting our dental practice.

Why have treatment in-surgery?

Some of our patients prefer to visit our dental practice here in Loughborough, as they find it gives them greater peace of mind during their treatment. Others prefer a mix of the two. Whatever you choose, we’ll be there to offer support as and when you need it, and you can also download the Invisalign app too.
