Do invisible braces exist?

This sounds like a thing of the future, right? Invisible braces, flying cars, hover boots… No doubt you know of braces that are metal and stand in stark contrast to your teeth. They’re fixed, they’re noticeable, and they’re notoriously uncomfortable. What if there were companies that rewrote the rules of orthodontics and braces to deliver invisible braces? Well, that’s just what they’ve done…

Here at Loughborough Orthodontics, we offer three different types of invisible braces.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign are one of the industry’s favourite invisible braces brand that use clear personalised custom aligners to straighten your teeth much more comfortably than traditional and fixed braces. One of the great things our Loughborough dentists love about this brace system is that they’re removable. Because they’re aligners that fit the bottom and top rows of your teeth, you can remove them like a gum shield. This means there’s no need to limit your diet or social life because your treatment will still be on track as long as you wear them for the recommended 22 hours per day.

Clarity Advanced ceramic fixed brackets

The Clarity Advanced ceramic brackets system is a fixed brace system that resembles the fixed, metal NHS braces we all know and love, but with one small twist. The brackets that would otherwise be metal or a coloured material are ceramic and therefore tooth coloured, meaning the fixed braces blend into your smile pretty effectively. The more noticeable part of the brace is the metal wire, but the ceramic brackets are deemed the more stand-out part of the braces to blend into your smile.

Incognito invisible fixed braces

Clear braces in Loughborough are truly something to marvel at, while they aren’t removable like Invisalign, invisible braces offer the same discretion, whilst being fixed to your teeth. How do they achieve this? surely fixed braces are immediately visible. Well, the Incognito appliance system bonds brackets, archwires, and bonding trays to the backs of your teeth. This means that you can still straighten your teeth with reliable fixed braces while maintaining an unencumbered and un-accessorised smile.

Do invisible braces still deliver results?

It’s a common misconception that invisible braces don’t offer the same results and effectiveness as traditional teeth straightening methods. However invisible braces still deliver great teeth straightening results and even improve your bite. The only difference between the two treatments is that clear braces in Loughborough deliver far more discreet results – one of the many reasons the treatment is so popular. The discreteness of the treatment helps the patients to feel less self-conscious about their treatment, improving dental health, and treating their bite, whilst still delivering excellent results.
