Your Marlborough & Newton Centre, MA Orthodontists
If silver isn’t your favorite color, traditional braces may not be for you. All of us at Carvalho & Roth Orthodontics hear what you’re saying. So, instead of having silver brackets on every tooth, we are proud to offer our patients with the perfect alternative: clear braces. When you choose to get clear braces with us, we promise that we’re committed to providing you with the quality orthodontic treatment that the families of Marlborough, Newton Centre, Northborough, and the surrounding areas have come to know our practice for.
Low Visibility Braces & High Visibility Smiles
The beauty of clear braces is that they use the same time-tested mechanism of traditional metal braces to move your teeth gradually into their new, perfect positioning. With clear braces, the stainless steel used in traditional braces is replaced with a translucent material that blends in perfectly with your teeth. When you smile, your brackets will barely be visible unless someone gets extra close, and they still are just as effective and comfortable as normal braces. The translucent material is also completely stain resistant.
Caring for Your Clear Braces
While wearing clear braces, maintaining a comprehensive oral hygiene routine is absolutely crucial, since the brackets can trap food particles. If not cleaned away, those food particles can turn into plaque that will damage and decay your teeth. Just brush, floss, and use mouthwash regularly to protect your teeth. You can even get floss threaders to help clean in between your braces.
A risk with clear braces is also one of its advantages. While ceramic braces don't stain, the clear elastic ties that hold the archwire in place do, so be sure to avoid dark liquids like cola or coffee and brush regularly to avoid staining. The ceramic composite that the brackets are made from are also more fragile compared to their metal counterparts. To prevent damage to your braces, we highly recommend that you avoid sticky foods that can put the brackets off, or hard foods that can damage the brackets.
