Clear braces are the orthodontic treatment of choice for patients who want to avoid drawing unwanted attention while their teeth are being corrected. With strong support for oral health, comfort and convenience, clear braces also offer much more than discreet bite correction. Many patients may have one big question in mind as they ponder treatment: How much are clear braces? Here is a look at the benefits of clear braces and the factors involved in the price of treatment.
Distinct Advantages of Clear Braces
Clear braces are virtually invisible, smooth and removable, giving patients several advantages that are not available from conventional braces. Lifestyle disruption is minimal thanks to their invisibility, and patients can take their aligners out to brush and floss their teeth. The ability to remove clear braces also lowers risks of damage that would require replacement. Finally, a lack of brackets means that patients with clear braces are unlikely to suffer oral abrasions.
Factors Affecting the Cost of Clear Braces
How much are clear braces going to cost? This depends mainly on the severity of bite irregularities that patients have, because more extensive treatment requires more aligners and more visits to our dentist. Replacement aligners also add to treatment costs if patients lose or break their aligners.
So, how much are clear braces? The price varies based on the factors described above, but patients can get a better idea of how much clear braces will cost after being examined by our dentist.
