Winnipeg Clear Braces

January 26, 2017

Thinking about straightening your teeth and getting your dream smile? You might have heard about an alternative to traditional wire braces known as clear braces.

Today we’ll explain what clear braces are, who they’re for, how much they cost, and how you can get them.

What Are Clear Braces?

Clear braces are a method of straightening teeth without the use of traditional wires and brackets. Instead clear braces use clear trays (like in the image above), otherwise known as aligners, to gently straighten your teeth.

Every 2 weeks your clear braces trays are changed, slowly moving your teeth to their ideal position.

Clear braces are typically faster than wire braces, with an average treatment of 12 months, compared to 2-3 years.

The biggest benefit of clear braces is that they’re virtually invisible in your mouth. Unlike traditional braces, people won’t know that you’re wearing braces throughout the treatment.

You can also take them out to eat so you never have to worry about food stuck in your braces.

One of the most popular clear braces options are Invisalign. Click here to read more about Invisalign. There are other clear braces options on the market but Invisalign is the one offered by most dentists.

How Do Clear Braces Work?

Clear braces WinnipegWhen you begin treatment with clear braces, we use an intraoral camera to look at the current position of your teeth and determine the best way to straighten them.

We then use these images to create a series of clear aligner trays that will slowly move your teeth into the correct position. Every 2 weeks you put in a new tray that is closer to the final position of your teeth.

The process typically takes about 1 year and you can start to see results in as little as 3 months.

What are the Benefits of Clear Braces?

  • Shorter Treatment Time – Traditional braces are typically worn 2-3 years, while clear braces are typically only used for 1 year.
  • Eat and drink what you want – Clear aligners are removed when you eat and drink so you don’t have to worry about avoiding certain foods or anything getting stuck in your braces.
  • Painless – Most people describe a slight pressure when they put in a new aligner but typically there is not any pain compared to the painful tightening appointments of braces.
  • Easier Appointments – Your dental appointments will be quick and painless, no tightening of brackets. We just want to check your progress and give you your new trays.
