Why is it that people don’t like braces? Is it the discomfort or the cost? Or is it the look of them? Recently, an invisible alternative to traditional braces has become available, under the names of Clearpath Aligners and iLingual Braces.
Dr. Rajeesh of Royal Bahrain Hospital explains: “Clearpath aligners are removable medical grade plastic appliances. They’re completely invisible, require less time in the dentist’s chair, shorter appointments, are removable, and most importantly, they’re more comfortable than the traditional alternative.” “We design these by using x-rays and photographs of teeth to create them. In fact, we use the most advanced computer programs to show you before the treatment begins how the smile will turn out!”
“However, I will warn that this is not a cure-all treatment.” Says Dr. Rajeesh, “We mainly use these to realign teeth, correct a smile and provide a fast discreet enhancement. But some significant issues may require another treatment.” Which brings us to your second alternative, the iLingual Braces.
These braces are aligned on the inside of the teeth, not the outside, making them invisible. “They’re more efficient, easier and more comfortable to place in, minimize the irritation to the tongue and gums. Their design makes it easier to clean your teeth and gives your dentist predictable treatment times.”
The iLingual braces are available in two forms, the normal style and the 3D style. The 3D version is more like a merging of the original iLingual and Clearpath Aligners. According to Dr. Rajeesh “To deliver the maximum effect, the 3D braces are great for dealing with crowding, and are also designed to be easy to insert and comfortable to wear.”
Basically, putting together all the benefits of these treatments, the fact that they’re aesthetically good-looking, as well as comfortable this is perfect for adults and teens who are interested in discreetly perfecting their smile.
