An Expert Guide to Removable Braces

Forget the metal braces of the past and discover the next generation of orthodontics with removable, invisible braces. See how this new option has made braces better than ever.

What are Removable Braces?

Braces no longer have to be a burden because advances in family orthodontics have made them invisible and removable. The most common type of removable braces is called Invisalign dental aligners and they have completely changed family orthodontics as we know it. Rather than the noticeable metal brackets and wires of traditional braces, this new orthodontics option offers greater discretion and comfort. As a result, these braces have become so popular that they’re now readily available from most orthodontists in Suffern.

What are the Advantages?

Removable braces consist of a series of clear aligners that are replaced by an orthodontist about every two weeks. Each new set of aligners is designed to gradually move teeth into their proper position. They are worn for most of the day and only removed for eating, drinking, and cleaning teeth. The average treatment time is between 18 and 30 months. According to experts in family orthodontics, they are in such high demand that nearly all orthodontists in Suffern offer them. The main advantages of these braces include:

  • More confidence because they are invisible from view.
  • Better cosmetic appearance because they blend into the color of teeth.
  • Much more comfortable since they lack metal brackets and wires that can irritate gums.
  • Maximum convenience since they are removed when eating, drinking, and cleaning teeth so they don’t affect daily function or oral hygiene.

When are Removable Braces Recommended?

While removable braces are effective, they aren’t ideal for everyone or every type of problem. An orthodontist will recommend removable, invisible braces to people with small to moderate orthodontics problems. This makes them ideal for adults and teens that are self-conscious about wearing braces. Since children usually have more complex needs, these are not the braces for kids. It’s important to keep in mind that their removable nature means they can be easily misplaced, which is why they are not the best braces for kids. Plus, their design and convenience make them less affordable braces than other options. Fortunately, many orthodontists accept insurance and offer financing to make them more affordable braces for many.
