Clear Braces for Comfort And Convenience

In a nutshell, clear braces tend to be more comfortable than traditional braces and lower-maintenance than clear aligners. The brackets are small and smooth, with rounded corners to reduce rubbing and irritation. With clear aligners, you need to remove your trays every time you eat and drink to avoid damaging the flexible plastic trays. But because clear braces are not removable, that means they’re always in and always working! And there are no extra steps to maintain great hygiene beyond your normal brushing and flossing.
