Discover the Orthodontics Option of Removable Braces

Do you need braces but can’t bear the thought of a mouth full of metal? Your smile solution may be found with removable, invisible braces.

The Revolution in Removable Braces

Say good-bye to everything you know about braces. While traditional braces had big metal brackets and bulky metal wires that made them very noticeable, new options in family orthodontics have ushered in a new age of orthodontics that are removable and barely visible. These braces have become so popular that they’re now readily available from most orthodontists in West Chester.

See the Difference

According to experts in family orthodontics, the most common type of removable braces is called Invisalign dental aligners and they are available from almost all orthodontists in West Chester. They feature a series of clear aligners that are worn for most of the day and replaced by an orthodontist about every two weeks. Each new set of aligners is designed to gradually move teeth into their proper position. The aligners are only removed for eating, drinking, and cleaning teeth. The average treatment spans between 18 and 30 months. The main advantages of these braces include:

  • Improved appearance because they blend into the natural color of teeth.
  • More confidence because they are invisible from view.
  • Greater comfort because they lack metal brackets and wires that can irritate gums.
  • Maximum convenience since they are removed when eating, drinking, and cleaning teeth so they don’t affect daily function or oral hygiene.

When Removable Braces are Right

Generally, an orthodontist will recommend these newer removable, invisible braces to people with minor to moderate orthodontics needs. This makes them ideal for adults and teens that are self-conscious about wearing braces. Since children usually have more complex needs, these are not the braces for kids. It’s important to realize that their removable nature means they can be easily misplaced, which is why they are not the best braces for kids. Plus, their design and convenience make them less affordable braces than other options. If cost is a concern, financing and insurance can make them into more affordable braces for you.
