Clear Braces Take Care of Your Teeth Discreetly

Braces are an important part of oral health for people of all ages. Misaligned teeth not only cause problems such as decay or loss of bone and gums but also lead to self-esteem issues for many people. Even so, some people hesitate to get braces because they worry the metal aligners make them look less attractive. Luckily, other treatment options are available. Oubre Orthodontics offers clear braces in Lafayette, LA, to patients of all ages.

How Clear Braces Work

Clear braces, also known as ceramic braces, work just like traditional metal ones. They fasten to your teeth using a series of wires and brackets that gently and slowly push teeth into the proper position. However, unlike the very visible metal brackets, ceramic braces use clear brackets and wires that blend into the natural color of your teeth. This more discreet option makes it harder for other people to tell if you are wearing braces, which may make you feel better about smiling and speaking while undergoing treatment.

Ceramic Braces Are Easy to Care For

Inevitably, our patients ask us how easy it is to care for ceramic braces. Caring for your braces is quite easy and prevents staining when done consistently:

  • Brushing and Flossing - Brushing and flossing regularly is important anyway, but not doing so when you have clear braces could cause the brackets to stain and make the braces more obvious. Brush after every meal and right before bed.
  • Avoid Certain Food and Drinks - Avoid food and drinks that are too sticky, too hard or prone to causing staining. These items may cause the wires and brackets to break or loosen and dark-colored food and drinks can cause staining that makes the braces more obvious.
  • Regular Checkups - Regular visits to Oubre Orthodontics ensure your braces stay in place and provide effective treatment.
