It is now possible to correct your teeth using invisible braces Sydney. These are a substitute to the wire bracelets which most people use. This, however, may not be an option for everyone — for example, people with a complex bite which would require the usual wire braces. However, for cases of overbite, misalignment of the teeth or spaced teeth, invisible braces offer a more aesthetic solution.
However, there is also an age restriction on the use of these braces. They are made for adults and older teens since they require a degree of responsibility. Usually, they are worn for 22 hours and then removed for a time before putting them back on. Children may easily forget these instructions or may lose the braces.
There are three common types of invisible braces:
- Inside braces
- Ceramic brackets
- Clear Aligners
These are also known as iBraces. A computer scanner is used to design the right fit of braces that will be fitted on the inside of the teeth where they will be hidden. Usually, they are fitted in a way that they are not removed until the teeth are corrected. They are more preferred to the other two types of invisible braces since they are completely out of sight. They are not without drawbacks though, first, you would consider the invisible braces cost Sydney which is higher than others since it requires the use of computerised design.
These are made from softer material compared to metal and they are a bit flexible. Ceramic brackets are held by rubber clips so that they are a bit cushioned. Their colour makes them hard to notice which is why they are better than metal. When these brackets are fitted, they will be replaced every month to adjust them. Because of the cost involved, many people opt to only have them fitted on the front while the teeth that are hidden can be fitted with the traditional braces. They are also not so comfortable and cleaning may be a bit of a challenge, but not impossible. Treatment with these braces may take longer than with metal since they are a bit softer.
Clear aligners can be removed whenever the need arises. They are also clear which means you do not have to worry about a metallic smile. These are the most comfortable invisible braces and they are easy to clean. The Clear Correct Sydney option, however, comes with the need for discipline. Since you are able to remove them when the need arises, it is easy to forget or just decide not to replace them or they could easily get lost or misplaced. This could mean that the treatment takes longer to take effect.
It is hard to put a particular cost on invisible braces. It would take an expert diagnosis to determine the kind of braces you would need and how technical it will be before an estimate can be provided.
