Have you ever heard the term, “metal mouth?” No, it does not refer to an old James Bond movie. Instead, it refers to teens and tweens who have worn braces.
These individuals used to face embarrassment and the harassment of being teased. However, now a new technology promises to change all of that – it is invisible braces.
About orthodontic treatment
Before we explain the many benefits of invisible braces and why you should choose them over metal braces, it’s time to give you some basic background information about orthodontic treatment.
What does an orthodontist do?
If you see an orthodontist, it’s because you have teeth issues. These can come in the form of overcrowding or crooked teeth, among other things.
An orthodontist will have you wear braces for at least two years. The objective is to make your teeth look and function better.
Braces also improve the overall and long-term health of your jaws, teeth, and mouth by making your teeth’s biting surface more uniform. It spreads your teeth’s biting pressure evenly over your mouth’s interior surface.
It’s best to see an orthodontist when you’re still a kid. That said, many adults see orthodontists.
Why visit Oraa Care Smile Dental Clinic?
Oraa care provides one of the best orthodontists in the field. A team of specialized dentists like periodontists will also diagnose the health of your gums if necessary. Periodontists always know how to spot and diagnose your gum health.
We understand that good orthodontic care can promote good gum health. It can also prevent and reverse periodontal (gum) disease. If left untreated, gum disease can and does lead to tooth loss.
Analysing gum health is the first step in Orthodontics
Gums health analysis
So, by now, you have some idea that gum health is essential. But do you know just how important it is? Yes, if you see a periodontist if necessary, the first thing they will do is analyse and diagnose your gum health.
Gums filled with suitably aligned and well-fitting teeth have few gaps and spaces. Therefore, there is less opportunity for bacteria, germs, and plaque to grow and wreak havoc.
Transparent Braces are recommended only when…
To complete that statement, we will recommend braces only after we have thoroughly diagnosed your gums and have determined that you need them either because of overcrowding, poorly spaced teeth, or advanced gum disease.
What are Teeth Aligners?
ClearPath braces are one brand offering invisible braces. Invisible braces are teeth aligners. If you needed braces, but don’t want the hassle of having metal braces put in your mouth, invisible aligners are the best option.
Invisible braces are plastic pieces that fit your teeth perfectly and snugly.
ClearPath braces are shaped in the same way that perfectly spaced, sized, and aligned teeth are.
They are designed to reteach your teeth to move into different patterns and spaces in your mouth by slowly nudging them into those patterns and spaces over time.
There are many advantages to getting ClearPath braces. These are:
In plain English, it’s just much more comfortable to put a plastic piece in your mouth that you can easily take out when you eat.
Also, since Invisible braces have smooth surfaces, you don’t have to worry about sharp or jagged pieces of metal poking or cutting the inside of your mouth, which could be more than painful & can lead to severe mouth infections.
You can take better care of your teeth
You would have to use a special pick to remove food and plaque that would accumulate between your teeth and braces if you wore traditional braces.
Failure to do this could result in severe cavities and even gum disease.
Also, you would need to brush your teeth every time you ate or drank something with traditional braces – to get rid of food residue. This issue doesn’t exist with ClearPath braces.
There is no poking or prodding
Your orthodontist would need to take x-rays of your mouth, do an oral exam, scan your teeth, and make a mold before they could send out orders to get braces for your mouth with traditional braces. The process is much easier with transparent braces.
The orthodontist has to scan your mouth and put out an order to have transparent braces created for you.
You should get ClearPath braces if you’re a teen or adult. Teens and kids may not be the best candidates for these braces because they’re designed to fit teeth perfectly and snugly.
The issue with teens’ and kids’ teeth is that their teeth and mouths are still growing and developing their shapes.
Therefore, ClearPath braces would fail in their objective of making these people’s teeth as straight as possible.
Also, people with complex dental problems like severe teeth overcrowding or spacing issues would not want to use ClearPath braces.
ClearPath braces are designed to address minor oral issues. People with more complex problems should seek other treatments, including traditional braces.
How long is the treatment?
Length of the treatment
Most people only need ClearPath braces for at most two years. Some people have straight teeth in 10 months. Some people who have previously had braces may only need to use ClearPath braces for two and a half months.
How does clear aligner work?
Clear aligners are transparent so that no one notices that you’re wearing them. These do an excellent job of straightening teeth with moderate spacing and crowding issues.
Clear aligners attach to teeth to ‘gently and slowly nudge’ them into the right places.
Patients are given different sets of aligner trays as their teeth move in position and alignment.
You’ll generally get a tray every one to two weeks. For best results, you should wear them at all times. The exceptions are when you’re eating or drinking something and brushing your teeth.
Trays tend to move your teeth a few millimeters every week.
Which is Better, ClearPath Braces or Clear Aligner?
The answer is, “it depends on what you want your teeth to do!” While both are similar, they are not designed in the same way. Therefore they do slightly different things. There are some pros and cons to both.
The first factor that differentiates ClearPath and clear aligner braces are the prices. You’ll pay a higher amount for ClearPath braces in comparison to clear aligners.
The second factor lies in engineering and design. ClearPath braces are thicker and less transparent. Therefore, they are ideal for people with more complex teeth issues.
Then there is the comfort factor. ClearPath braces use more advanced technology. Therefore, its mouthpieces are much more comfortable.
ClearPath braces are made out of a patented thermoplastic material. Therefore, they are easier to take off and put back on your teeth.
ClearPath braces have also been around for a lot longer. The company was founded in 2008. It was marketing its braces (after gaining FDA approval).
How to care for your teeth
Do the following to make sure that your teeth stay healthy when wearing ClearPath braces:
- Brush every time you eat
- Floss every day at least twice a day. Flossing helps keep harmful bacteria and food particles from accumulating between your teeth. It also helps prevent gum disease and tooth loss.
- Brush your ClearPath braces with antibacterial soap at least twice a day. Doing this will prevent bacteria from growing on or in your braces. Your mouth will be much cleaner, and it will be much less prone to developing cavities.
- See the dentist every six months. You are supposed to be visiting the dentist at least twice a year anyway. Regular teeth cleanings will prevent bacteria, plaque, and tartar from accumulating on your teeth and around your gums. You’ll have far fewer cavities and gum infections.
- Disinfect your ClearPath braces. It is an extra step that will keep bacteria from growing.
How to prevent gum disease
Do the following to prevent gum disease:
- Brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day. Doing so will not only keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible, but it will get rid of all of the plaque, tartar, and bacteria that can cause gum disease.
- Be sure to rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash at least twice a day. It must be approved by the American Dental Association (ADA) to work correctly. Doing this will help remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from the 75% of your mouth that flossing and brushing won’t reach.
- Eat lots of fruits and vegetables and avoid sweets as much as possible. Sweet foods contain sugar that can accumulate on your teeth and turn into the bacteria that cause cavities and other teeth and gum issues.
- Don’t smoke or do drugs. Smoking and doing drugs will destroy your teeth and gums. They also lead to substantial tooth loss over time.
You must wear a retainer for at least a year after removing your ClearPath braces. The reason is simple; your teeth still have a faint memory of their positions in your mouth before braces.
They can and will move back to their old positions with a mouthpiece if not held in place. A plastic retainer is that mouthpiece.
You can get one of two types of retainers after your braces are removed:
A bonded retainer
It’s a strip of solid metal wire glued to the back of your upper and lower teeth. Many people opt for a bonded retainer on their lower teeth to prevent teeth from moving back. Orthodontists recommend that people who have had issues with severe overcrowding get a bonded retainer, at least for their lower teeth.
You have two choices if you choose this type of retainer:
- Hawley retainer – this is the wire retainer that has been used for several generations.
- The clear retainer. It’s more commonly referred to as the Essix retainer. The critical difference between the Hawley and the Essix retainers is that the former is a piece of plastic that rests against the roof of your mouth, while the metal front hugs your teeth. The objective is to keep your teeth in place. The Essix retainer does the same job, but people won’t see a wire band around your teeth since the retainer is made out of clear plastic.
Is the correction permanent?
Your teeth will stay straighter for life after removing the ClearPath braces. There are a few caveats, though. You must continue to wear the retainer for as long as your orthodontist specifies. You must also wear the braces as directed and appear at every appointment for the braces to work.
Can I go for ClearPath if I have periodontal disease?
Yes, you can get ClearPath braces if you have had gum disease. Periodontist will take care of the gum disease first & then will recommend you for orthodontic treatment or Invisible braces.
What does ClearPath treatment consist of?
You will wear a series of braces molded to fit your jaws and teeth perfectly over several months. These braces will gently nudge your teeth into the proper place.
What do ClearPath braces look like?
They’re made from clear and advanced plastic, almost invisible to the naked eye. These braces are completely transparent.
How will ClearPath treatment benefit me?
You can take them off to brush your teeth, floss, eat, and drink. You can’t do this with traditional braces. ClearPath braces are also virtually invisible to the naked eye!
