Clear Braces in Marlborough, MA

Clear braces use the same proven, time-tested technology as traditional orthodontic braces, with one important difference: instead of being made from stainless steel, the brackets in clear braces are made from a transparent ceramic composite material. This means they blend in with the natural color of your teeth, creating a treatment method that’s far less noticeable than traditional braces. Clear braces won’t be as obvious in photos or social events, making them a great option for patients that want a more discreet treatment but still want the durability and reliability of braces!

How to Care for Clear Braces

As with all forms of treatment, how you care for your teeth and braces is absolutely vital to the success of your treatment. Daily brushing and flossing, including brushing after every meal, is vital to keeping your braces and teeth free from bacteria and plaque, and you’ll also need to use specialized tools like interdental brushes and floss threaders to keep your teeth clean. As an added protection, we always recommend using a fluoride mouthwash to eliminate bacteria and protect your teeth.

There’s one more thing to keep in mind with clear braces. While the ceramic brackets of your clear braces won’t stain, the clear elastic ties that hold the archwire in place are susceptible to staining. To prevent this and keep your braces as discreet as possible, it’s important to limit (or eliminate) foods and beverages that might stain your braces. This includes dark liquids like coffee and soda as well as strongly-colored food like dark berries or tomato sauce. Furthermore, you’ll need to be extra careful to avoid hard or sticky foods that can damage your braces, as the ceramic brackets of clear braces are more fragile than their stainless steel counterparts.
