Other types of clear brace

Clear braces are the type of braces that have clear or tooth-coloured brackets when fixed on the teeth. They are the most unnoticeable out of the various kinds of invisible braces.

There are other options you may want to consider if you are looking for less noticeable braces. Clear braces are a good alternative for people who are not fit to use aligner brace treatment but still want well-aligned teeth.

The best thing to do when looking for the best clear braces for yourself or your teen is to visit a dentist or orthodontist with experience in using different types of braces. They will give you professional advice on the best type of orthodontic treatment for you.

If you like the idea of less noticeable braces which are not Invisalign for some reason, there are other options you may want to consider.

Damon clear braces

Damon clear brace is an example of a self-ligating brace which uses a kind of slide mechanism to tighten itself. There are several benefits of Damon clear braces over the traditional braces, some of which are listed below:

  • It adjusts itself continuously over time which makes it more comfortable for use
  • The sliding mechanism exerts less pressure on teeth which reduces pains
  • Only a few dental check-ups are needed
  • They are easier to keep clean since they don’t use elastics
  • Available without any visible metal parts

Damon clear braces are more expensive because of the convenience and comfort patients enjoy when using it. It is a price that many patients are willing to pay.

Clear smile brace

Clear smile brace is a brand of clear braces that are produced by a UK based company called Clear smile. It is a brand of brace that helps to align and straighten teeth. It is a self-ligating brace that offers the same benefits as the Damon Clear braces. The arch wire that is used in Clear smile braces is coated white just as the colour of the teeth, making them invisible. Clear aligner treatment is not advisable for patients who want to re-align their back teeth because it focuses only on the front 10 teeth.

Clear Correct aligners

Clear Correct is a brand of clear invisible braces that are used both in the US and UK. They work in the same way as Invisalign. Orthodontists often recommend that aligner should be worn for nothing less than 22 hours daily for optimum results.

Clear step braces

Clear step braces is a brand of clear aligners that are produced by a company called Clear step and they are used for teeth straightening. Just like the clear correct aligners, it should be worn for at least 22 hours daily.

Visit your orthodontist for more information on which one is most suitable for you.
