Clear Braces are a more aesthetic alternative to metal braces that still maintain many of the great qualities brackets hold over aligners.
Ceramic or clear braces have the advantage that they are less noticeable than metal braces. They are also less likely than metal braces to irritate a sensitive mouth.
Every patient is different and has a unique anatomy that must be considered in the treatment plan of the case. Different patients respond to treatment in their own way, so it truly does vary on a case-by-case basis. With all of that being said, because of our efficient techniques and technology, most of our patients are in braces somewhere between 12 and 18 months. We do you see many patients in braces for as little as 6 months, but for patients with more complex issues, it can take up to 2 to 2.5 years.
