Metal braces are used around the world for correction of misaligned teeth and they have been the choice of both the patients and the dentists alike for quite a while now partially because they were good at what they were suppose to do and partly because the people had no other alternative. However using the metal braces had its share of disadvantages; it made you look awkward every time you smiled and often particles of food would get stuck in the braces and cleaning them would require special brushes and if they were not removed properly they could result in infections and bad breath as well, another disadvantage is that the metal braces cannot be removed by the user if he wishes.
However, if you were to use clear braces you would not have to deal with any such problems, so the clear braces are definitely more advantageous than their traditional metal counterparts. These braces are made out of clear plastic of medical grade of course and thus when they are worn so they are practically invisible when you are wearing them and also you can just take them off at anytime that you might want without having to visit your dentist as these require no special equipment to remove or even put back on. The fact that they can be removed at will also makes them a lot easier to clean and thus maintain.
The clear braces are also cheaper than the metal braces which means that that you don’t even have to spend a lot of money on these compared to the metal braces and you still get a better deal. The braces are designed to fit snugly over the teeth so they don’t feel awkward when you wear them. New users may feel a little bit uncomfortable at first but it gets easier with time as you grow used to it.
