Clear Braces in Oak Creek

Clear Braces in Oak Creek

If you decide to embark on the journey to achieve straight teeth and your dream smile, traditional silver metal braces are no longer the only option. Griffin Orthodontics is proud to offer our patients clear braces, and they could be the perfect option for you.

What Are Clear Braces?

Clear braces with sapphire brackets work the exact same as metal braces except the brackets themselves blend in with the patient’s teeth so they are much less noticeable. They are made up of either sapphire crystal or synthetic sapphire. We use radiance ceramic brackets because they are the most translucent bracket, and are therefore a great option for patients who don’t want to draw any attention to their braces treatment.

How do I Keep Them Clean?

Make sure to keep better care of your brackets since they’re so translucent and have the possibility of staining. Some foods to avoid eating in excess include beets, curry, and pasta sauce. Smoking tobacco can also lead to stains. Luckily, it’s the elastics, not the brackets themselves, that tend to stain, and elastics are changed out around every month and a half. Make sure to brush your teeth at least twice a day and use special dental floss to get in between the brackets.

Am I a Candidate?

Not everyone is a candidate for clear braces. Depending on your specific orthodontic issues and needs, Dr. Griffin may suggest a different route for straightening your teeth.

The doctor will consult with you and evaluate your needs and together, you will come up with the option that’s best for you and your smile.
