Should You Straighten Teeth Without Braces?

Do thoughts of painful wire tightenings keep you from realising the benefits of orthodontic treatment? Since the advent of aligner technology, teens and adults can now undergo orthodontic work without needing bulky metal appliances.

The U.S. aligner market is worth $1.2 billion, and that growth can steadily increase as people realise the many benefits of straightening teeth using aligner technology. Read on to learn how to straighten teeth without braces.

Common Problems with Metal Braces

Metal braces can address several teeth alignment problems, but many people find the orthodontic treatment options tedious and uncomfortable. Undergoing cosmetic dentistry using metal braces requires many trips to the orthodontist’s office.

Metal Appliance Placement

First, your orthodontist has to place metal appliances on your teeth. This process requires a lengthy visit to the orthodontist. The brackets, wires, and attachments can interfere with your bite and ability to speak comfortably.

Frequent Visits to the Orthodontist

Throughout the treatment, you’ll have to frequently visit your orthodontist so they can tighten your metal braces archwire or fix any broken appliances.

Dietary Restrictions

Metal braces come with strict dietary restrictions. Most orthodontists will tell patients to avoid sticky foods that cling to metal braces or hard food items like shells that can break off metal appliances.

If a bracket or attachment does break, you’ll have to go back to the orthodontist to fix those issues. Each visit only adds to the cost of your treatment.

Special Oral Hygiene Guidelines

Anyone who has undergone orthodontic treatment using metal braces knows that properly cleaning the appliances can be a chore. Special floss threaders have to be used to remove trapped food particles between your teeth. Traditional flossing isn’t an option because of the wire connecting the metal brackets.

Unappealing Treatment Process

One of the drawbacks of metal braces is that they blemish your smile. The metal appliances used today are smaller in profile than they used to be, but they still can malign photos. If you are looking for a discreet alternative to metal braces, consider using Alignerco’s nearly invisible clear aligners.

Is There a Cost-Effective Way to Straighten Teeth Without Braces?

Top Reasons You Should Consider Clear Aligners
