Clear braces are a special type of orthodontic system that straightens your teeth using special aligners. These aligners apply pressure to your teeth at specific points, which causes the teeth to move. As your teeth move, you will switch to a new set of aligners to maintain progress and keep your teeth moving towards their final positions. The cost of clear braces can vary based on your needs. Our orthodontists can provide you with an estimate at your consultation.
Some things that can affect your cost include:
- Your treatment needs
- The extent of your treatment
- The number of aligners you need to complete your treatment plan
- The type of clear aligners you choose
- Any additional treatments that you need
- Your adherence to the treatment plan
For most people, the benefits of clear braces make them worth the cost. Clear braces are smooth and comfortable to wear, and many teens and adults prefer them because they are almost invisible when worn. The aligners can be taken out for meals or to clean the teeth, so they disrupt your lifestyle less than other types of orthodontia.
