Thank you for visiting contemporary General Dentistry, where we provide patients with Hartford clear braces in a fun and exciting atmosphere. Hartford clear braces are type of orthodontic that uses clear fixtures so that they are less visible to the viewer. Clear braces are easy to put on and take about the same amount of time as regular Orthodontics or Invisalign.
Clear braces straighten the teeth and stabilize them over time in the same amount of time as traditional braces. Traditional braces use brackets with hardware and arch wires that stretch and keep the teeth tight to move into the correct position. Clear braces are just less visible but work in a similar way. Both types of braces are ideal for patients, and depend on individual preference. Clear braces come in brands like Invisalign, which are fitted to the teeth in trays. The first tray is given to the patient during their first fitting and analysis. It is kept on for two weeks, upon which the next tray is then given in the series, until all trays are given over the course of time. The amount of time that Hartford clear braces need to straighten teeth is about the same as traditional braces but can all depend.
Traditional braces are more visible than clear braces. Depending on the level of alignment needed, patients may use either type of braces. Many adults prefer clear braces. Invisalign makes eating, flossing and drinking easier than with regular braces, because they can be removed for functions. Another benefit of Invisalign is that there are no fixed metal brackets or wires or screws to tighten, which many patients find more comfortable.
