Are clear aligners better than conventional braces?

Your clear aligners can have some advantages over the conventional braces. Like

  • Easy to clean and maintain oral hygiene as it is removable.
  • Virtually invisible as it does not use wires and brackets.
  • Quicker chair side appointment time with your dentist.
  • Easier to fabricate using intra oral scans.
  • You can remove the aligner while eating, so you can enjoy you favourite foods.

However, aligners are effective in correcting mild crowding, gaps and teeth straightening. Your dentist / orthodontist can decide on other treatment options for some of the more complicated tooth movements.
