Clear braces are similar in structure to traditional metal braces, but have no color. Aligners differ in that they are composed of plastic molded to your mouth for a customized fit. For those requiring only small orthodontic treatment, aligners can be an ideal option.
There are both benefits and limitations to clear braces. The option you ultimately choose will depend upon your budget, lifestyle and personal preference. Your orthodontist will help you decide which option is best for you.
Again, while it is true that they are different than traditional metal braces, we don’t use traditional metal braces. Aligners differ in that they are molded to your teeth and need to be worn a great majority of the day.
The last line, for those requiring only small orthodontic treatment, aligners can be an ideal option, seems to set the tone that aligners are better /superior to braces. This is not the case.
The option you ultimately choose will depend upon your budget, lifestyle, personal preference and complexity of your individual case.
